Paulinho – 1-0! Bayer 04 Leverkusen – Eintracht Frankfurt: Bundesliga live ticker

41 minutesBad pass Hasebe and Leverkusen against again. Azmoun lays out to the left to Andrich, who targets the short corner with a powerful shot. He narrowly misses the field – and Diaby is annoyed that Andrich did not put the ball across.

38 minutesThe corner is made short, the ball goes over several stations to Paciencia, who can shoot from 20 meters. It is Frankfurt’s first goal, Hradecky keeps the ball, which comes centrally to his goal, in the follow-up.

37 minutesKostic pulls a free kick from the half of the field on the penalty spot, Schick is right and clears the corner with his head.

35 minutesThe video judge confirms this: It was offside. It stays at 1: 0.

34 minutesAzmoun strikes through for Schick, who shows up alone in front of Trapp and hits the ball under the crossbar. The flag does not go up, but Leverkusen celebrated very cautiously because it was very suspicious to be offside.

30 minutesFree kick taken by Aranguiz at half-time, Tapsobah takes the ball directly from the second post and hits it in the side netting.

27 minutesThe first corner of the evening goes to Eintracht: Kostic executes, Schick leaves at the first post.

23 minutesLeverkusen now plays the ball back and forth. Both teams seem to follow a strategy of trying to lure the opponent out and then find space behind the defense. But because both teams decide on premature pressure, we see a tough fight.

20 minutesIt was a very strong pass from Diaby, but it was not easy to play. And you can not really blame Trapp from a distance, but with a little more luck the goalkeeper could have prevented this goal.

Goal!
18 minutes – GOOOOO!

Paulinho

Template Moussa Diaby

hurray! LEVERKUSEN – Frankfurt 1: 0. Once Frankfurt appears a little more offensive, the goal immediately falls! After losing the ball in the opponent’s penalty area and losing a duel in midfield, the Hessians let Diaby run off to the right. With his outside wrist he sends the ball to Paulinho on the second post, who takes it immediately. Trapp has one leg on the ball, but he slips down and ends up in the goal.

16 minutesWe are still waiting for a significant goal. Now Frankfurt has the ball in their own ranks, but there is no risk associated.

13 minutesLeverkusen dominates in this initial phase, but has not found promising situations so far. Frankfurt are almost exclusively busy defending, Hradecky has had nothing to do yet.

11 minutesAzmoun leads a quick Leverkusen attack, but does not have enough speed to shake off his pursuers. When he wants to match the started Diaby, Tuta intervenes.

8 minutesDiaby picks up a long pass from the Andrich class, puts the ball past Kostic and goes down when he feels a contact on his foot. One could have talked about a penalty kick – but Diaby was already offside when Andrich passed it on.

5 minutesDiaby increases the pace to the right, goes to the baseline, but is blocked by Tuta at the intersection. The ball lands in Trapp’s arms.

4 minutesAranguiz quickly tries to play a free kick from the half of the field, but his pass to Paulinho is too steep and ends in goal. All in all, a relatively calm start to the game.

kick-off

1 minuteThe ball is rolling!

Before the game startsThe teams are ready in the locker room and the kick-off sounds in a few minutes.

Before the game starts40-year-old Benjamin Cortus is to judge the match.

Before the game startsAfter Dortmund’s defeat against Bochum (3: 4), Leverkusen can theoretically still reach second place. The Werkself had to win their last three games for it, while BVB only got one point.

Before the game startsAt the moment, however, Frankfurt has not won in five league matches (three draws, two defeats).

Before the game startsHowever, the first match in December clearly went to Eintracht, who won the match 5-2 after trailing 2-0.

Before the game startsBayer have all won the last six BL home games against SGE – Werkself have not had such a long winning streak at home against any other current BL team.

Before the game startsWerkself need the points to hold back SC Freiburg, who came on points with Bayer 04 with a 4-3 win over TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday. And with RB Leipzig having one point less on their account, Leverkusen have a long-distance duel today. At the same time, the Saxons are visiting Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Before the game startsNevertheless, the goal for the hosts from Leverkusen today is certainly nothing more than the three points. How would it be different when you receive the tenth-placed team in third place in the table?

Before the game startsBut that does not mean that Frankfurt go into the duel tonight without any motivation whatsoever. Any supposed substitute who is allowed to play from the start today should be eager to recommend himself for use in the Europa League semi-finals (and also in a possible final).

Before the game startsThat makes it clear what Frankfurt want to focus on in the last few weeks of the season: the Europa Cup. And that’s only logical – the Hessians can no longer be relegated and the European places in the league can no longer be reached. In this situation, each club would focus fully on the Europa League. After the 2-1 victory in the first match, Eintracht also has a really good chance of qualifying for the EL final on Thursday.

Before the game startsThe league is used for rotation at Eintracht, only three players were in the Europa League against West Ham on Thursday: Trapp, Tuta and Kostic.

Before the game startsOliver Glasner sticks to his 3-4-3: Trapp – Tuta, Hasebe, N’Dicka – Chandler, Jakic, Hrustic, Kostic – Hauge, Paciencia, Ache.

Before the game startsGerardo Seoane makes two changes after the 4-1 victory in Fürth: Hincapie and Andrich replace Bakker and Demirbay.

Before the game startsLet’s take a look at the lineups – Leverkusen starts in 4-2-3-1: Hradecky – Kossounou, Tah, Tapsobah, Hincapie – Aranguiz, Andrich – Diaby, Azmoun, Paulinho – Schick.
