Had to on Saturday evening RB Leipzig at the feared opponent Eintracht Frankfurt compete. The Saxons had never won the eagles before. That shouldn’t change this time either, as they parted 1: 1.
Gates: 1: 0 Barkok (43rd), 1: 1 Poulsen (57th)
The Frankfurters put a back four against the Leipzig efforts and initially had success. Although Sörloth gave the guests their first degree, the hosts were just as willing to take the step forward. After ten minutes Nkunku saw only a yellow card for a tough foul against Frankfurt’s Durm.
As a result, Leipzig was a little more dominant – Olmo put his shot just over the Frankfurter box after a quarter of an hour. But the home side also failed just after Hinteregger’s conclusion after a Kostic corner.
The pace of the game was not particularly high overall, however, and due to the stable Frankfurt defense, it smelled strongly of a 0-0 break at break. But shortly before the break, N’Dicka hit a free kick from the center line into the Leipzig penalty area. Upamecano and Angelino misjudged each other and Barkok took advantage of this mistake with the 1-0 break lead for the hosts.
Nagelsmann was not very satisfied with the result and brought three new players in the second half with Poulsen, Forsberg and Orban – Upamecano, Sörloth and Olmo had to go down. Kostic wanted to use the confusion immediately, but Gulacsi directed the Frankfurt’s shot to the post.
But Leipzig quickly recovered from the shock, because Poulsen equalized the game in the 57th minute after a fine cross from Angelino.
After that a lot happened in midfield, both teams didn’t take the last risk and seemed to be able to live with the draw. Ten minutes before the end Gulacsi parried again against Silva, shortly before the end Trapp stopped against Poulsen on the other side.
More did not happen, consequently the game ended 1: 1.
