Table leaders twilight in the city forest: Eintracht Frankfurt continued its furious run in the Bundesliga and also defeated FC Bayern Munich. In the 2-1 (2-0) success on Saturday, the Hessians showed a brilliant performance, especially in the first section and took the lead through goals from Daichi Kamada (12th minute) and Amin Younes (31st), Robert Lewandowksi (53th minute) ) could only shorten for the Munich team.
The fact that the leader of the table had traveled to the city forest could not be seen from minute one. Eintracht, in which Luka Jovic replaced the injured André Silva, put the Munich team under pressure early on, forcing slight mistakes and creating opportunities. Younes’ first attempt was just blocked by David Alaba (4th). The n there was a break: linesman Mike Pickel had to stop due to an injury, the fourth official Tobias Reichel took over his job.
Kamada to 1-0, Younes to 2-0
The Hessians didn’t mind the five-minute break. After that, the game only went in one direction – and Eintracht was rewarded for their courageous performance. After a nice combination via Younes and Filip Kostic, the ball landed at Kamada, who scored 1-0 (12th). At this point, Eintracht was so full of self-confidence that Younes tried just three minutes later with a shot from the center line that narrowly missed Bayern’s box.
And even if the Hessians then took their foot off the gas a little and Bayern had a little more from the game, only one team remained really dangerous in front of the goal: Eintracht. And was rewarded: Younes left FCB defender Niklas Süle with a dangling, pulled away and scored to make it 2-0 (31st). Süle headed (34th), Joshua Kimmich with a long shot (40th) and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (44th) caused some unrest in front of the Eintracht goal, but Almamy Touré had the last chance of the first half, who failed because of Manuel Neuer (45th).
Lewandowski meets the connection
Coach Adi Hütter’s team was unable to take the momentum from the first section into the second half. Bayern were now finally in the game, Eintracht in reverse. The first good opportunity then led directly to the connection goal: Leroy Sané prevailed against Evan N’Dicka and Sebastian Rode, Lewandowski was allowed to dust off (53.). It was an effective hit, the Hessians were now swimming worryingly.
Hütter had to react and brought Stefan Ilsanker for Rode and Ragnar Ache for Jovic. Alone: It didn’t help. Kingsley Coman equalized but didn’t hit the ball properly (70th). The Hessians could not provide relief afterwards either, the Munich team continued to determine the game. For Eintracht it was only about saving the narrow lead over time – or setting the counterattack that brought a victory.
Davies sets ache – no penalty
In the 79th minute the time had come: Kostic wanted to use Ache, who was rudely brought down from behind by Alphonso Davies. Incomprehensibly, however, there was no penalty. Not much came from FCB afterwards, Kostic had the last chance of the game, but Neuer was able to fend off his shot (90th). In stoppage time, the Hessians brought the game over time.
