Kevin Trapp: Four chances, three goals: When BVB struck in the first half, the Eintracht keeper was lost. In the further course of the game, when he was also powerless at 0:4, prevented another big chance through Adeyemi.
Total: Continue on the wrong track. Didn’t look good with three goals conceded, revealed technical shortcomings again and again. Far, far from the form that once made him a reliable defender.
Makoto Hasebe: At the reunion with Haller in the air on a lost battle. Otherwise not always master of events, but still the best in the chain of three.
Christopher Lenz: In the unfamiliar central defender’s position, Bellingham immediately faced major problems. Couldn’t find a way to stop him.
Sebastian Rode: Saw the yellow card against the old comrades for the sixth time. Far from any other form. substituted.
Djibril Sow: Frankfurt long-term player – in Dortmund without leadership qualities. Traditionally ran a lot, but moved little.
Aurelius Buta: Had his most striking scene with a header he could have done a lot more with.
Ansgar Knauff: If this appearance at a well-known venue should have been an application game: failed. The youngster can do that much better, but didn’t show it in his weak 45 minutes.
Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe: The man on the right flank – actually responsible for advances, flanks and finesse. There wasn’t much to see. In the overall weak second half of Frankfurt, almost nothing.
Mario Götze: At least in the first half by far the most conspicuous Frankfurt field player. Tried shooting with the right and left – and missed both times. The only creative post that wasn’t much to see after the break on familiar BVB terrain.
Randal Colored: Eager, industrious, committed in the first section, but without fortune. One of his most ineffective performances. Substituted later.
Daichi Kamada: There for a half-time because Knauff made room. One or two appealing scenes when the technically skilled Japanese turned circles with the ball. Ultimately without effectiveness.
Rafael Borré: From the 52nd minute on for Rode. Had no significant action in the further course of the game.
Dario Gebuhr: The next Bundesliga debut from Glasner’s shrunken squad. The 19-year-old homegrown Frankfurter enjoyed 20 minutes of first division air, Hasebe made room. Can take advantage of the fact that no further goals were conceded in this period of time.
Paxten Aaronson: American whirlwind with a tendency to want too much. Dribbled once to the right. The pass to the other side with the free view that is of course necessary for this would have been the better choice.
Faride Alidou: Six minute short deployment when Ebimbe left.
