Eintracht Frankfurt 4: 0: Borussia Dortmund uses the bankruptcy of FC Bayern Munich and is the new table leader in the Bundesliga

Borussia Dortmund is the new leader of the Bundesliga! BVB won their home game on Matchday 29 4-0 (3-0) against Eintracht Frankfurt. After the defeat of FC Bayern Munich in Mainz, the black and yellow lead is now one point.

  • Jude Bellingham gave BVB the lead with his fifth goal of the season (19th). Just five minutes later, Donyell Malen raised. Shortly before the break, Mats Hummels made it 3-0 with his first Bundesliga goal since October 2021. Malen again contributed the fourth goal.
  • Malen scored in the fifth BL game in a row. The Dortmunder was involved in eight goals in these five games (six goals, two assists).
  • Hummels is the seventh player in BL history to score in at least 15 consecutive seasons. The previous last was Olaf Thon from 1984/85 to 1999/00 in 16 consecutive seasons.
  • The SGE has not kept a clean sheet in Dortmund for 26 BL guest appearances (most recently 3-0 in April 1991). The Adler have never conceded a longer series of goals away from a club in the Bundesliga.
  • Before the game, BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke spoke about the defeat of FC Bayern, Markus Söder and the future of Marco Reus. Here you read more!
  • After the game, Dortmund coach Edin Terzic and sports director Sebastian Kehl commented on the championship lead. You can find what both said here.

BVB – Eintracht Frankfurt: The analysis

It sounds strange with a 3:0 for Dortmund at the break, but the SGE was at least equal in the first 45 minutes. BVB’s enormous efficiency made the difference, scoring three goals with four shots on goal – the expected goals values ​​were 0.61 to 0.5 per Borussia. At first, the hosts lacked clarity in the game going forward and only made it into the penalty area with high balls, but remained harmless. But after the first successful sequence of passes over several stations, the doorbell rang immediately.

Dortmund won a little more than half of the duels, but especially after the double strike they acted too passively and not very consistently against the ball. Frankfurt managed to get behind the defense several times over the wings and appear in the penalty area with good prospects. The top-class opportunities were missed by Buta and Götze – and Dortmund scored a third time against the noticeably uncoordinated defense.

In contrast to the disappointment in Stuttgart last weekend, what was consistently right at BVB this time was not only efficiency, but also willpower. Borussia came out of half-time with sharpened senses, remained alert and stable in both directions. Especially the counter-pressing after losing the ball, but also the occupation of the penalty area during offensive actions were strong.

So the game in the second section was no longer sharp at any phase. Dortmund controlled the ball and opponents – and expanded the safe break lead.

BVB – Eintracht Frankfurt: The data for the game

Gates: 1-0 Bellingham (19′), 2-0 Malen (24′), 3-0 Hummels (41′), 4-0 Malen (66′)

  • Dortmund has won against no other club in the Bundesliga as often as against Frankfurt (49 times) and scored as many goals against any other team (194).
  • BVB has now won four BL games in a row against SGE for the first time.
  • Dortmund celebrated the ninth BL home win in a row.
  • Frankfurt has been without a win for eight BL games. This is the longest current winless streak in the league. Away, the SBU has been waiting for a threesome for nine games.
  • SBU coach Glasner lost all eight of his BL duels against Dortmund.

The star of the game: Mats Hummels (BVB)

With more than 70 percent of duels won, he is the best duel at BVB. In addition, with the most ball wins on the field, his anticipation was, as so often, excellent. Crowned his good performance with his long-awaited – and historic, see above – goal to make it 3-0.

The flop of the match: Christopher Lenz (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Collected an early – albeit unjustified – yellow card and therefore had to be careful. Before the 0: 1 scorer Bellingham let himself be turned in too easily and came too late in many scenes.

The referee: Deniz Aytekin

Decent performance in a game without major excitement. However, the early yellow card for Frankfurt’s Lenz was wrong, as he did not actively go about his alleged foul play against Haller (13′).
