Even champions Bayern Munich can not stop the run of Frankfurt Eintracht. In the top duel of the 22nd round, Adi Hütter’s team won 2-1 at home and stayed on a Champions League spot.
As on Monday, the Munich club world champions were punished for a little committed first half against promoted Bielefeld (3: 3). Eintracht gained an advantage in the first half hour through Daichi Kamada (12th) and a remarkable long-range goal from Amin Younes (31st), which Hütter’s team was able to defend with luck after the break.
Although Bayern dominated the second half at will, quickly found their way back into the game through Robert Lewandowski (53rd), but subsequently struggled with efficiency. In the final phase of the defensive battle in Frankfurt, the Swiss international Steven Zuber was on a brief assignment.
The second winless championship game of the German team – since the return from Qatar and the title as club world champion, FCB have not won any more – is causing some tension in the fight for the title. With a victory in Berlin on Sunday, pursuer RB Leipzig moved up to two points on the record champions.
Mainz has taken the next important step in the fight against relegation. The Mainz fought the troubled Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1. For the Gladbachers, who lose their coach Marco Rose to BVB at the end of the season, the fourth game without a win in a row meant a fall back to 8th place. Gladbach corrected an early deficit through Lars Stindl in the 26th minute, but the foals couldn’t find an answer to Mainz’s 2-1 through substitute Austrian Kevin Stöger (86th). Breel Embolo, who came into the game in the last minute of regular time, could not turn things around either. Yann Sommer and Nico Elvedi played through in the defeat for Gladbach, Denis Zakaria came on during the break.
The gap to Borussia Dortmund is three points after losing points.
