Frankfurt brings Bayern to its knees
The Munich team lost 1: 2 (0: 2) at the formally strong Frankfurt Eintracht.
The hosts got off to a furious start and earned a deserved lead through goals from Kamada (12th) and Younes (31st). After Lewandowski’s goal (53rd), Bayern pushed for the equalizer, but it was no longer successful.
In the early stages there was a long break in the game after an unusual scene. After five minutes, line judge Mike Pickel twisted, needed treatment, and couldn’t continue. After a five-minute break, the fourth official, Tobias Reichel, took over Pickel’s job.
While Frankfurt jumps to third place in the table, Bayern remain in first place despite the defeat. Should RB Leipzig win at Hertha BSC on Sunday, the lead in second place would be reduced to two points.
Bor.Mönchengladbach – FSV Mainz 1: 2 (1: 1)
Since Borussia Mönchengladbach announced on Monday that coach Marco Rose will move to Dortmund for an alleged five million euros in July, there has been a lot of excitement in the “foal” stable. Fans demanded the 44-year-old coach’s immediate leave of absence, mob banners were hung and demonstrations threatened. “Shocked” complained Borussia sports director Max Eberl, “how dull and stupid” the reactions turned out to be.
The home side acted for long stretches without creativity in the construction and with nervous access on the defensive.
Mainz proved to be a dangerous opponent from start to finish. From a compact defense, the team of the coach Bo Svensson, who was installed in January, started fast counter attacks. Onisiwo used a 60-meter pass from St. Juste over the Gladbach defense, who completed a left into the far corner (10th minute). Two minutes later, 05-keeper Zentner got Hofmann off his feet. Referee Markus Schmidt whistled a penalty, but he conceded it again because the Borussia striker had come from offside.
The growing nervousness after another chance for Mainz through Szalai, Gladbach’s Stindl ended with a low shot to 1: 1 (26th). Borussia then kept pressing, but Stöger made it 2-1 for Mainz (86th).
Wednesday (9 p.m.) is the next acid test for Rose and Gladbach in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. In Budapest it goes against England’s leaders Manchester City.
SC Freiburg – 1. FC Union 0:1 (0:0)
The team won against SC Freiburg 1-0 (0-0) at 19 degrees in spring.
Freiburg has been playing with its oldest starting eleven across all competitions (average age 27.9 years) since August 2009, making it the oldest under coach Streich. His team struggled against courageous guests who rewarded themselves with the lead in the 65th minute. Prömel headed the 1-0 after a cross from Ingvartsen. It stayed with this goal – to the joy of Union.
1.FC Cologne – VfB Stuttgart 0: 1 (0: 0)
A look at the statistics made it clear what a manageable soccer game that took place in Cologne on Saturday afternoon. Before the break, neither the local FC nor VfB Stuttgart were able to finish. A novelty in this Bundesliga season.
After all, the guests put aside their harmlessness after half-time and came to an important away win thanks to the goal by Sturmhüne Sasa Kalajdzic (49th). Substitute Cologne, Salih Özcan, who only hit the bar (77th), missed the greatest opportunity to equalize.
