Benzema and Alaba meet ++ Kamada shoots mega chance |
Frankfurt’s bitter Supercup evening against Real
Frankfurt misses the double hit of the European Cup!
85 days after the triumph in the Europa League (6:5 nE) the Uefa Supercup is lost 0:2 against Real Madrid in Helsinki. After the 1: 6 swatter at the start of the league against Bayern, ex-Munich David Alaba (30) of all people is responsible for the Eintracht Ko!
37. Minute: Benzema prevails against two Frankfurters at a Kroos corner, Casemiro puts the directionless Trapp and Tuta back from the baseline to the completely free Alaba. He just has to dust off – 1:0!
Frankfurt’s defensive standard weakness is once again evident. Eintracht had already conceded two goals against Bayern after dead balls.
With the exception of Filip Kostic (29/changes to Juventus Turin for 17 million euros plus bonuses), coach Oliver Glasner (47) has the same starting XI as against Glasgow, says before kick-off on RTL: “The game is a reward for the European League Title. The guys have done great things.”
Also means: Mario Götze (30) sits on the bench first and comes on in the 58th minute.
But even that doesn’t help anymore! Frankfurt is playing well, but can only get the ripped-off Spaniards into trouble once. Kamada fails free in front of the goalkeeper at Courtois (14th). It would have been 1:0!
Striker star Benzema makes everything clear after a flat cross from Vinicius Jr. from 14 meters (65th). Trapp looks unhappy with the central shot.
Lucky for Real though: Shortly after a Frankfurt throw-in on the left, Carvajal Lenz (playing for Kostic) kicks his legs from behind (45′). An assault that was not seen by the referee and not checked by the video referee.
Thorsten Kinhöfer (54), referee expert from BILD am SONNTAG: “For me it is incomprehensible that the video assistant did not intervene here. That was a deliberate kick, the ball was far away. That’s red.”
By the way: The 10,000 or so Frankfurt fans only attracted positive attention this time. But there will be noise at the official fan festival before the game!
A fan keeps interrupting President Peter Fischer (66) when he warns of further riots and associated ghost games in the Champions League.
Fischer then mobbed: “I’ll have you thrown out of here now. I’m tired of this idiot shit. You just never come to the stadium again, what do you want here?”
