BVB wins Bundesliga top game against Eintracht Frankfurt

The weary Borussia Dortmund players knew exactly who to thank. The outstanding BVB goalkeeper Gregor Kobel was able to collect the well-deserved congratulations after the intensive and ultimately emotional 2: 1 (1: 1) of Dortmund on Saturday evening at Eintracht Frankfurt. With the victory in the spectacular top game of the Bundesliga, BVB stays three points behind series champions FC Bayern. In the final phase, referee Sascha Stegemann handed out several yellow cards after the formation of a pack.

“We put up a great fight today, but we also allowed a lot of chances,” said Kobel on “Sky”. “We scored great and defended great in the last few games, but there are definitely things we can do better.” Julian Brandt (21st minute) and Jude Bellingham (52nd) scored for BVB.

In front of 50,000 spectators, Daichi Kamada (26th) was successful for Eintracht. Three days before the decisive Champions League group game at Sporting Lisbon (9 p.m. in the FAZ live ticker for the Champions League and on DAZN), the Europa League winner around Mario Götze only performed well this time, but not the result. Coach Oliver Glasner also failed to win a point in the seventh Bundesliga comparison with Dortmund. Eintracht, who had previously won four competitive games in a row, is fifth in the table with 20 points.

Götze was the center of attention before the reunion with his former club because he had recommended himself for a World Cup participation in Qatar with his recent performances. But there was no reunion with his old friend Marco Reus: As a precaution, the BVB captain was rested after his ankle injury. And on the lawn of the Frankfurt World Cup stadium, players other than Götze initially attracted attention.
