Borussia Dortmund is on course for the Champions League

As of: March 17, 2024 8:30 p.m

Borussia Dortmund stayed on course for the Champions League with a 3-1 (1-1) win against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday evening (March 17, 2024). With this success, BVB overtook RB Leipzig again and is fourth.

Former Borussia player Mario Götze turned the previous game on its head early on when he gave the Hessians the lead in the 13th minute. Götze capitalized on a blocked shot attempt by Omar Marmoush. Alexander Meyer, who was guarding the BVB goal for the injured Gregor Kobel, had no chance after his save against Marmoush when Götze placed a low shot.

BVB superior, but without a goal threat

At this point, Borussia had taken control of the game after a somewhat disjointed start, but failed with long-range shots from Marco Reus (free kick, 7th), Julian Brandt and Ian Maatsen, none of which went to Kevin Trapp’s goal.

But then the Black and Yellows struck back. First Willian Pacho saved from a shot from close range by Niclas Füllkrug (18th), then Karim Adeyemi made his appearance: First he chased the ball well over the crossbar of the Frankfurt goal from ten meters on a volley (27th).

But then the ball finally shook the goal net: Donyell Malen worked his way to the baseline on the right and passed the ball sharply inside. Adeyemi sensed the chance and slid in the cross (33′).

Game period two: Frankfurt continues to be self-confident

Eintracht had their first opportunity to score after the break: Éric Dina-Ebimbe left Nico Schlotterbeck standing shortly after the break, but was denied by Meyer. Malen then tried a few things on BVB’s right side, but overall the Dortmund team slacked off as the game went on rather than developing promising game situations.

The guests increased pressure. Kobel representative Meyer used a lightning reflex to prevent Marmoush from hitting a volley from no more than eight meters. The goalkeeper threw his arms up and prevented Borussia from falling behind again (68′).

BVB with a better final phase – and the winning goal

A little later, a low shot from Brandt shook Dortmund up again, but Frankfurt’s Tuta blocked it successfully (72′). And the hosts actually managed to score the winning goal in the final phase. With a free kick from the right from Brandt, Mats Hummels headed the ball and heaved the ball into the goal just next to the right post, making it unstoppable for Trapp.

An apparent red card against Emre Can caused a stir five minutes before the regular end of the game. The Dortmund player had cleared Ellyes Skhiri in midfield. Referee Tobias Stieler immediately showed the red card because Can hit the Frankfurt player with the sole of his foot above the ankle. But the referee, after studying the video recordings from the Cologne basement, converted the sending off into a yellow card because Can had lightly touched the ball shortly before contact with Skhiri’s leg.

“I’m clearly playing the ball, and that’s the important thing,” Can said to the sports show. Mario Götze, on the other hand, criticized the video assistant’s intervention: “It must be a very clear wrong decision – for me it’s not honest.”

In injury time, Can himself scored the final point when he sank a penalty kick high into the Frankfurt goal on the right (90-+5). Youssoufa Moukoko was fouled on the edge of the penalty area.

Terzic happy – Trapp understandably not

“We stayed calm, we stayed patient,” said Borussia coach Edin Terzic to the Sportschau, “the way we reacted to the goal we conceded was very satisfactory. Overall, a very confident performance from us.” “We hardly allowed anything to come out of the game,” said Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp. The course of the game was “unfortunate for us and fortunate for Dortmund,” adding: “We had a great chance to take something away from this.”
