Eintracht Frankfurt takes on RB Leipzig with new staff and old courage and is rewarded with a point win. Adi Hütter’s starting line-up changes are taking effect, Aymen Barkok underlines his ambitions.
Eintracht Frankfurt fought for a point against the top team RB Leipzig on Saturday evening. After recently rather weak performances, the Hessians presented themselves in better shape against the second in the table and earned a 1: 1 (1: 0). Aymen Barkok gave the hosts the lead in the first half (43rd), while substitute Yussuf Poulsen equalized (57th).
Hütter throws the starting XI mixed up
Eintracht coach Adi Hütter had caused a surprise before kick-off and mixed up the starting line-up. After the Austrian had hardly ever rotated so far, he brought five new players from the start against RB and helped Erik Durm, Djibril Sow, Evan N’Dicka and Aymen Barkok to make their starting eleven debuts this season.
A personal experiment against a top team. A brave approach or the wrong approach? Clearly: the former. “We played very clever tactically today and made the rooms tight,” said Hütter after the final whistle. “Leipzig has never won here, so I’m happy today.”
Barkok rewards courageous unity
On the defensive, which varied between a chain of four and five depending on the situation, Eintracht was much more compact compared to the previous weeks. The Hessians granted Leipzig very few rooms and managed to keep the dangerous RB offensive from rolling. Training world champion Durm showed against Angelino and Christopher Nkunku that he has at least not forgotten tackles, the rest was done by the bouncer trio Abraham-Hinteregger-N’Dicka.
It looked good against the ball, but a header from Martin Hinteregger (22nd minute) and a nice counterattack with a weak Kamada finish (30th) remained the only highlights for a long time. However, as the Leipziger completely paused shortly before the break after a long ball from N’Dicka and Barkok stayed cool, Eintracht was rewarded for their courageous performance with a 1-0 half-time lead.
Poulsen comes and hits
Guest coach Julian Nagelsmann, who visibly disliked the action on the lawn, reacted with a triple change during the break and brought in the two top scorers Emil Forsberg and Poulsen. The game with running Leipzigers and well-defending Frankfurters did not change anything, after two negligence in the Eintracht defense, RB came to equalize. Durm gave Angelino too much time to cross, in the middle Poulsen prevailed against Hinteregger. It was already 1: 1 (57th).
In the period that followed, the people of Leipzig demonstrated that they are not in the top tier of the Bundesliga for nothing and that they want to return to the Champions League this year. The Saxons tightened the harmony increasingly in their own half, Frankfurt relief was only very rare except for a chance from Silva (78th). Since the team of coach Hütter continued to be highly concentrated and courageous, they earned the draw. In contrast to the division of points against Bielefeld, Cologne, Bremen and Stuttgart, a result that can be seen.
