Bundesliga: Eintracht Frankfurt wins 4-0 against RB Leipzig

IIn four days, a new era begins for Eintracht. For the first time in its history, the club is allowed to take part in the Champions League. At the start there is a home game against the Portuguese competitor Sporting Lisbon, which according to general opinion should be won in order not to be forced to act early on the big stage.

Oliver Glasner’s football team made impressive use of the opportunity to gain more self-confidence for the eagerly awaited game with a win. On Saturday, in the official highlight match of the fifth Bundesliga matchday, Frankfurt beat RB Leipzig 4-0 in their own stadium.

“The game was well deserved,” said RB coach Domenico Tedesco on Sky. “We completely missed the basics, we weren’t on the pitch at all in the first half. (…) We were terrible, really, a catastrophe.” That was “far too little” for RB Leipzig’s claims.

Concord without Pellegrini

It was the first home win of the still young season and at the same time the first for almost six months for the team, which after the summer break had only come out of the starting blocks in the middle. But things are looking up for the Europa League winners: with eight points, he has moved up to mid-table.

Eintracht quickly made it clear that they would push hard to extend their good record against the Saxons; The Red Bulls have never won in Frankfurt since they were promoted to the first class in 2016. Christopher Lenz replaced Italy’s Luca Pellegrini as a left-back in the back four, who was out at short notice due to “muscular problems”, as the Frankfurt team explained. At Leipzig, Peter Gulacsi, who has recovered from a hip injury, returned between the posts. And the Hungarian was under heavy fire.
