Bundesliga: Union Berlin – Frankfurt 2:0! Union causes Götze frustration



Union Berlin can continue to dream of the Champions League!

The capital club wins 2-0 against pursuers Frankfurt and extends the lead over the Hessians to eight points. The Berliners cheer for a goal debutant.

53 minutes: After a Union corner, the ball falls right at the feet of midfield driver Rani Khedira (29). He peppers the ball from almost five meters into the box, shoots the Berlin 1-0 lead.

A fan in the stands is particularly happy!

Khedira’s world champion brother Sami (35) looks on at the old forester’s shop and celebrates Rani’s first Union goal as if it were his own goal.


Bitter for Frankfurt: Up to the deficit, Eintracht clearly has better chances.

However, Kamada fails from close range (34th), Kolo Muani (39th) heads over the goal from five meters. So Eintracht frittered away the lead in the capitals.

They, on the other hand, are ice cold – and with the second big chance they put the lid on it!

75th minute: Kevin Behrens (32) claims a long ball, tips the ball past Frankfurt defender Smolcic and stays cool in front of keeper Trapp. He tunnels the national goalkeeper to 2:0!

Symbolic of the frustration in Frankfurt: Mario Götze (30)! The world champion remains invisible for long periods of the game in the defeat, only attracting attention in the first round with a grumbling attack against referee Dingert. He was substituted in the 82nd minute and took a seat on the bench in frustration.

With the Berlin bankruptcy, Frankfurt suffered the next setback in the fight for the premier class. Eintracht has now gone four league games without a win. It’s going to be difficult with the second Champions League year in a row…
