Eintracht win thriller

Eintracht Frankfurt solidified their place in the top four with a thrilling 4-3 comeback win against fellow Champions League chasing rivals Wolfsburg.

The crucial win over Wolfsburg was blighted by the news on Tuesday that manager Adi Hütter will leave the club in the summer to join Borussia Mönchengladbach.


What it means

Andre Silva scored his 23rd Bundesliga goal of the season and made another as the hosts maintained their seven-point lead over Borussia Dortmund in fifth.

Wolfsburg’s three game winning run came to an end but they stay third, a point ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Eagles remain unbeaten at home this season in the Premier League.


Knauff scores with first ever shot to keep top four hopes alive

The youngster has recently been promoted to the first team and scored with his first ever shot  in the 80th minute to score the crucial goal for Edin Terzic’s side

Jude Bellingham also scored his first Bundesliga goal for BVB.


Leipzig respond with thumping win

RB Leipzig hammered Werder Bremen 4-1 to reduce the lead at the top to five points.

Alexander Sorloth scored a brace for Julian Nagelsmann’s side, who eased to a comfortable win.


Depleted Bayern concede late equaliser

Bayern Munich beat Leipzig last week to create a seven-point gap and most likely end the title race, but a much-changed Bayern side slipped up against Union Berlin, drawing 1-1.

Hansi Flick had to reshuffle his side with nine first-team players out due to suspension or injury. Two youngsters: Bouna Sarr and Josip Stanisic made their first starts in the Bundesliga.

Bayern, who broke the deadlock through 18-year-old Jamal Musiala in the 68th minute. The forward used his nifty footwork to step past Robin Knoche in the area and find the bottom corner.

They were unable to hold on to their lead and conceded with four minutes to go as Robert Andrich’s cut back was tapped home by Marcus Ingvartsen.
