Wait for Scan? Not when Eintracht Frankfurt is in the game. The Hesse got down to business on Sunday as by furies, driven and tried, the Leverkusen from the outset to intimidate. Three days after their successful Europa League excursions to Rome, where the Eintracht Lazio 2:1 had been defeated, and Nicosia, where, as well for the next round of qualified work won self against Larnaca, 5:1, was a stroke of holiday fatigue, how to feel over nothing. “It was a deserved victory after a hotly contested game. Leverkusen has a great team. The boys have earned with a lot of dedication and passion for the win,“ said sporting Director Bobic after the final whistle. And he was right.

A high level of intensity could be felt all around the duel between the most aggressive League-topteam and the back in the direction of the best places pressing counter-attacking specialists from the Rhine. This results in a highly attractive match with many opportunities on both sides. The team with a slight chance plus lead at half time 1:0, after Da Costa had completed in this period of time the best move of the Frankfurt about Willems and Kostic from five metres, gates, distance, consistently, to 1:0.

But otherwise it went high, to prevented such as the Frankfurt striker Haller start at the last Moment, the goal was (1.), the harmony replacement defense chief Falette and threw in the shot from Volland and him without any intention, with the Arm blocked (11.), as Rebic quite ruthless in the earlier Frankfurt Keeper Hradecky rushed (17.) and, amazingly, was not shown a yellow card, as Trapp a shot of Brandt saved (17.) and referee Brych on the recommendation of the Cologne video wizard Central, once again, the supposed opening goal of the work of self through Bellarabi was looking at (19.) and noticed that Dragovic booth at the shot his colleague’s view, interfering with for Trapp in an Offside position.

turbulence there was also a then not – so, as Hradecky Haller’s shot was parried from a short distance (41.) and Havertz’ Jack be target just missed (45.+2).

In the case of frankfurters, the Absence of Makoto Hasebe, the defensive organizer and first player of the Eintracht in the dicey moments, made a little noticeable. To the delight of the Fans, the 34-year-old Japanese has lengthened a bit on Sunday, his contract with Eintracht Frankfurt for another year. He will look forward to a more exciting future in this since the previous season, steadily upward-seeking club, although he will be out for the Rest of the first half of the season, as his coach confirmed after the game.

negligence against this harmony, no League can rival can not afford – even the Leverkusen claiming a top spot, but more run after. Bayer started the second half on Sunday to sedate and was punished with the second Frankfurt goal. As the werkself made no move, made an attack on the table the fifth on the right side, could Haller flanks unchallenged on Kostic and once again very energetic Serb achieve unchallenged, the 2:0.
