Eintracht Frankfurt woke up from their dream against Werder Bremen (2-1) and saw the possibility of fighting for the title disappear after seeing a spectacular streak of 28 points added to 30. The defeat keeps them in fourth place in the Bundesliga , 7 of the leader Bayern, which tomorrow receives Cologne.
The game couldn’t have started better for Eintracht, who opened the scoring on their first occasion. Filip Kostic crossed a ball into the box from the left wing and André Silva hit a header that made it 0-1 in the 9th minute.
André Silva prolongs his great moment of form
It is the 19th goal for the Portuguese striker, who prolonged his great moment in form and consolidates himself as the second top scorer in the Bundesliga, 7 goals behind Robert Lewandowski.
Eintracht did not create danger again in the first half and allowed Werder Bremen to grow as the minutes passed and they deserved to go into the break with a draw.
Werder Bremen come back after the break with two VAR goals
In the second half, the trend continued and Werder Bremen wasted no time in achieving 1-1, endorsed by the VAR. Milot Rashica put a good ball deep, Kostic was not expeditious in the cut and Theodor Gebre Selassie crossed the ball against Kevin Trapp (48 ‘).
Eintracht had to put the batteries together and caressed the 1-2 with a cross volley from Kostic, their most dangerous player in the whole game, who lost very close to the post (55 ‘).
But Werder Bremen deservedly completed the comeback with another goal validated by the VAR and very similar in execution. This time it was Maximilian Eggestein who found Joshua Sargent and he, in the correct position by millimeters, crossed before Trapp (64 ’).
Pavlenka frustrates André Silva 2-2
There was half an hour left but the marking no longer moved despite the fact that Eintracht turned in search of an equalizer and Werder Bremen lavished several dangerous cons. André Silva had the most expensive chance in the 76th minute after receiving a ball in the area, turning and unleashing a shot that Jiri Pavlenka deflected with a save.
At the end, Werder Bremen’s victory, which remains in 12th place and is already 8 points away from Arminia Bielefeld, the team that would dispute the playoff for permanence.
