Borussia Dortmund are enjoying an incredible form. The Ruhr Westphalia team travels to Frankfurt on Saturday for some Bundesliga action. Coming from an important win last Saturday against Hanover, The black and yellows are hoping to secure another 3 points. However, Match Day 20 isn’t quite as the away fans hoped as Eintracht Frankfurt hold Borussia Dortmund in the Comerzbank Arena.
Pure Attacking Masterclass
The game started with intensive attacking plays from both teams. It seemed obvious from the beginning that none of them want to settle for a point. Eintracht Frankfurt showed more determination in the first 20 minutes. However, Marco Reus and co. started to take things under control.
Marco Reus Scores Again
On form Marco Reus was in the mood for some goals. The black and yellows captain showed leadership and character to help his teammates find their flow.
Therefore, with an inspiring spell, Raphael Guerreiro delivered an assist in the penalty spot for Marco Reus to score his 13th goal in the Bundesliga this season. However, the German player of the year missed more chances than any other player in the entire league this Match day.
Roman Burki, The Savior
The game could have ended with a huge scoring sheet. If it weren’t for some sensational saves from Roman Burki, or some heartbreaking misses from Marco Reus. In the defense, Weigl showed that he can be a very valuable defender for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, in the midfield, the main question was ” Where is Witsel?”. The Belgium international wasn’t in his best of forms during the whole game.
All in all, Frankfurt deserved the point
As Eintracht Frankfurt hold Borussia Dortmund, the home team played a very courageous game in the presence of Dortmund’s amazing attacking line up.
It is a game to forget surely for Lucien Favre’s men as they will take on Werder Bremen for DFB Cup action next week.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
