A really great start in this cup duel. Both teams act with an open visor.
And in return, André Silva has the next chance! The attacker makes Tah look old with a casual lifter and then runs towards Hrádecký from a half-right position. The Finn remains the winner in one-on-one!
And again the hosts! Bender sends Diaby on the journey with a great ball through. The Frenchman returns to the right of the baseline towards the penalty spot, where Amiri pulls away. But Trapp is down quickly and can parry the low shot.
First chance for Leverkusen. Diaby takes a class on the right against Barkok and then crosses sharply to the first post. Alario comes in there, but can no longer place his header. The ball flies past the post on the left.
How does the Bosz-Elf react to the early deficit? The Werkself are not really in the game yet.
Goal for Eintracht Frankfurt, 0: 1 by Amin Younes
The early tour for Frankfurt! Durm intervenes offensively on the right side and fits in with Kamada on the outside. The Japanese gives flat in the sixteenth where André Silva lets the marble clap briefly and so perfectly hangs up for Younes, who pulls off directly from a half-right position twelve meters. His precise low shot ends up intolerable for Hrádecký in the lower right corner of the net!
The SGE shows itself offensive for the first time. Kamada prevails on the right and then looks for André Silva with a low cross in the center. The Portuguese can’t quite get to the leather at the first post.
The ball is rolling! Frankfurter Eintracht has opened the game.
Frankfurt’s sports director Fredi Bobic has just confirmed Luka Jovic’s upcoming change in an interview with Sky! “Luka Jovic is about to loan us until the summer. We still have to work on a few topics – the medical check, for example. If everything goes well, he will be back with us soon,” said Bobic.
Eintracht coach Hütter also rotates. The Austrian brings four fresh players compared to the 2-0 at Mainz. Tuta and Ilsanker replace Abraham and Hasebe (both bank). The red-banned Kostić is represented by Barkok. In addition, midfielder Sow is missing due to the upcoming birth of his child. Rode has been there from the start.
At the Werkself, coach Bosz made three changes to his starting line-up after the 1-1 draw against Bremen. Captain Lars Bender replaces Dragović in the right-back position. Wendell and Alario also start for Sinkgraven and Schick.
Frankfurter Eintracht, on the other hand, started the new year with two wins. In addition to the success against Bayer, FSV Mainz 05 was beaten 2-0 last weekend. “We have to find a mix between what we can and want to play, a mix of controlled offensive and compactness, as we showed at home,” analyzed SGE coach Adi Hütter. The eagle-bearers are also making a spectacular return. Some media reported today that Luka Jovic is on loan from Real Madrid to Eintracht for the next six months. The Serb moved from Frankfurt to the Spanish capital in the summer of 2019 for over 60 million euros. However, the deal has not yet been officially confirmed.
The start into the new year was rather moderate for the Leverkusen-based company. In addition to a disappointing 1: 1 against Werder Bremen last Saturday, at the beginning of the month there was a 1: 2 bankruptcy in the Bundesliga against today’s opponents from Frankfurt. “It’s a game where they say: Hopefully you’ll only play it once a year,” said Bayer coach Peter Bosz, referring to the performance in the defeat in Frankfurt. The Werkself want to do better tonight. “The DFB_Pokal is an important competition for us. But other clubs will say that too. Eintracht Frankfurt is a very good opponent,” said the Dutchman in the run-up to the encounter.
Welcome to the second round of the DFB Cup! In the catch-up game, Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt will determine RW Essen’s opponents in the round of 16 at the beginning of February. Kick-off is at 8:45 p.m.
