Frankfurt. A real energy goal is probably what best describes the scoring that on Saturday should have made Danish Yussuf Poulsen the match winner in RB Leipzig away match against a tame Eintracht Frankfurt team.

With three minutes of overtime, the home team equalized after a set piece, and then it ended with 1-1 and points sharing.

This means that instead of jumping up to fourth place, Leipzig will have to settle for eighth place in the Bundesliga. Frankfurt is number 15.

The guests were the dominant team on the field, but only ten minutes before the break came the reward. And it came from a Danish butt.

A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by Yussuf Poulsen. 1 – 0 was the score.

As usual, the Dane delivered a solid work effort in front, and he was involved in several dangerous situations for Leipzig throughout the match.

Despite several chances, the visitors from eastern Germany did not manage to extend the lead, so everything was open throughout the showdown.

The intensity increased, the duels became more and harder, and it became a battle of exhaustion between the two crews.

20 minutes into the game, Yussuf Poulsen had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury.

From here he could scout over to compatriot Jesper Lindstrøm on the opponent’s bench, where he remained seated throughout the showdown.

They could both see Leipzig have several great opportunities in the last ten minutes to close out the match, but Kevin Trapp in the home side’s goal stood excellent.

Swedish Emil Forsberg also burned in front of an almost empty goal, and the many burners ended up being expensive.

Deep into overtime, a set piece ended for the home team of defender Tuta, who was able to head the equalizer in and secure the home team a very undeserved point.
