False start of the second half of the season perfect: Eintracht Frankfurt loses against Bielefeld | hessenschau.de
Three games, no win: Eintracht Frankfurt’s false start in the second half of the Bundesliga season is perfect. Against Bielefeld it was a bitter and unnecessary defeat for the Hessians.
Eintracht Frankfurt is still waiting for the first competitive win in 2022. The Hessians lost on Friday evening against the basement child Arminia Bielefeld 0: 2 (0: 2). The false start to the second half of the season with just one point from three games is perfect. The goals for East Westphalia were scored by Patrick Wimmer (5th minute) and Alessandro Schöpf (28th).
The party started with an early shock for Eintracht, who could once again build on the support of Filip Kostic, Martin Hinteregger and Kevin Trapp. From the fifth minute, the Frankfurters ran behind one. The reason for this: During the Bielefeld attack, which Wimmer completed with a well-considered left-footed shot to make it 1-0, the Hessian defensive department completely lost contact with the opponent. From that point on, it was already clear: This could be a difficult evening.
Scoop by breast to 2:0
Eintracht tightened up briefly after that and then tried to create opportunities from their own superiority in the field. The best was Jesper Lindström, who appeared free in front of the Bielefeld goal after Djibril Sow’s phenomenal pass, as in previous games, but carelessly missed this chance (16′). In the 28th minute, Eintracht’s guests showed how to take advantage of opportunities – in a completely bizarre way.
Goal scorer Wimmer was allowed to combine into the penalty area, then crossed the ball into the middle with a Rabona trick (!), where Alessandro Schöpf steered the ball into the Eintracht goal with his chest (!) – 0:2. From a Hessian point of view, however, it must also be mentioned: Here, too, the Frankfurt defensive was much too timid, physical contact was renewed.
Kostic hits the outside netting
The Hessians didn’t really have a lot of field afterwards. The Arminia made the rooms cramped, the Frankfurters didn’t really find a recipe for this. Rafael Borré had the best chance before the break, but Stefan Ortega was there when he finished (34′). That’s how it went into the break with a two-goal deficit.
Eintracht, nobody could deny that, tried it in the second half as well. The Hessians, now with Makoto Hasebe instead of Hinteregger, put pressure on the guests in their half – but the brilliant idea was still missing. Kostic had the first good opportunity in the second period, but his shot went to the side netting (65′).
Borré gives the best Eintracht chance in the second section
On the other hand, Frankfurt was even lucky that Wimmer didn’t score East Westphalia’s third goal. After a nice solo, the Bielefeld player missed the ball in front of Trapp (72′). Since the Hessians advised the Arminia goal afterwards, but acted rather uninspired and Borré missed the best opportunity in injury time, the bitter and completely unnecessary home defeat remained.
