The 8th day of the Bundesliga continued this Saturday afternoon and saw a very good poster on the program between Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig. A very important match for the semi-finalist of the last Final 8 who could come up to Bayern in the event of victory, after the draw conceded by the Munich a little earlier against Werder Bremen (1-1). Three days before the trip to the PSG pitch in the Champions League, Nagelsmann’s men quickly got their foot on the ball but saw Kevin Trapp’s partners respond tit for tat. A few small opportunities, however, insufficient to overcome the vigilance of the two defenses during the first half hour. The opportunity for Angelino to shine. The man in shape of the moment on the side of Leipzig armed a volley in first intention near the surface but the former goalkeeper of PSG reassured his people by diverting the leather for a corner (35th). Alone in the box on the action that followed, Upamecano tried his hand in turn but his crushed shot did not worry anyone (36th).
Dominating, visitors ended up being surprised shortly before the break. On a well-wound free kick from N’Dicka, Barkok sent a shot in the left corner of the goal (44th, 1-0). It hit the mark and the locals returned to the locker room with this small advantage in the score. Not far from doubling the return from the locker room, the Frankfurt players were in turn punished for their lack of realism. The untenable Angelino, with the baton, sent a marvel of center in the surface which was taken again in the most beautiful way the Danish international, Yusuuf Poulsen. This time, Trapp could only see the damage (57th, 1-1). Both teams wanted this victory at all costs and André Silva was not far from being the hero of the evening. The Portuguese striker missed his face to face with Gulacsi and the score did not change. The two formations left on a score of parity (1-1). An opportunity to come back to Bayern missed by RB Leipzig who could see Dortmund take this third place in the standings if they win on the lawn of Hertha Berlin this evening.
