Hoffenheim: twice-a-Latte – Frankfurt: twice Espresso


During the TSG Hoffenheim desperately in the Bundesliga game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Torgebälk, make the guests twice very quickly and force the away win.

Frankfurt’s sporting Director Fredi Bobic brought it to the game to the point: “We have been lucky, but luck is something you have worked today.” 40 minutes of the TSG was Hoffenheim in their home match against Eintracht the better team, had some good chances to score, but at the end of a 2:1 (1:0) stand for the guests thanks to goals from Ante Rebic (40. Minute) and Luka Jovic (56.). Reiss Nelson (83.) met the goal for Hoffenheim.

Bobic moved to his statement about the happiness of his team, especially on two situations in the first half of the game. In the 29. Minute there was a double chance for Hoffenheim. After a Header by Adam Szalai goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was able to save at the last Need, the subsequent head to the ball, Leon continued Bittencourt on the underside of the bar. From there, the Ball bounced on the line, but not into the goal.

Only ten minutes later: Kerem Demirbay dribbled through the Frankfurt defence, met with his Lupfer, however, only the aluminum. “Hoffenheim was certainly in a playful way better team,” Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter stated later, “the gate of Ante Rebic turned the game on its head.”

Cheap Goals Against

And the just a few seconds fell after the second strike hits the bar: hope home Florian Grillitsch threw a throw-in right in front of the feet of the Frankfurt Jovic, was immediately steep and more on Rebic. Because Oliver Baumann stood much too far in front of his box, it was for Rebic Easy to LOB the Ball over the baffled TSG goalkeeper and into the net. Hoffenheim Coach Julian nail man later called it “almost a goal”, and captain Kevin Vogt not to be upset after the final whistle at the Sky only about the Situation: “We do not earn us so many things, make the goal and give the opponents two goals. This is much to cheap, as we eat the goals.”

In fact, the second Frankfurt goal was a chain of unfortunate hope Heimer actions. Seconds after the restart, a loss of the ball in the opponent’s half of the forward movement, not agreed with the Association, and finally bombed back to Baumann, the block, the sharp bills of Mijat Gacinovic only in the middle, and so Jovic hung up, just had to push.

This is how it works: Jovic (no. 8) concludes, after a Baumann-blunder 2:0 for Frankfurt

Rebic weakens his Team

However, it was not so, that Hoffenheim have now abandoned. Again and again, especially after Rebic had to go to his Yellow-Red card (64.), the Team of coach brand man came dangerously in front of the gate of harmony, a hit was not going to fall. Adam Szalais hack trick from a short distance, it was only up to the goal line in injury time saved Trapp famos with a header but the ball is Ishak Belfondil.

So it remained at 2:1 for Frankfurt, which was three days after their 4:1 in the Europa League against Lazio demonstrate their good Form. “We were ice cold, very efficiently. This was a great team performance,” praised Bocic, also under reference to the short regeneration time of his team after the international presence from Thursday.

Hoffenheim must be based, however, completely unexpectedly to the bottom. At least captain Vogt has understood, that was him in the TV Interview after the game clearly noted. And nail man brought it to the point: “We have a lot of quality,” he said at the press conference, “but it is also to score goals, when you think about it. Just makes it a little fun.”
