2: 3 at Hoffenheim – Eintracht’s winning streak has stopped

Dhe streak of victories at Eintracht Frankfurt is broken in two ways. After three threes in a row, the Hessians lost 2: 3 (1: 2) on matchday 14 of the Bundesliga 2: 3 (1: 2) at TSG Hoffenheim, which was gaining momentum. In addition, Eintracht missed the seventh win in a row against the Kraichgauer.

Dennis Geiger (24th), Georginio Rutter (30th) and Diadie Samassekou (59th) scored for the Hoffenheim team (23 points), who initially climbed to fourth place in the table and expanded their lead over Frankfurt (18 points). TSG celebrated the third win in a row, and it was also the fifth home win in a row. The goals conceded by Rafael Borre (15th) and Goncalo Paciencia (72nd) didn’t change anything. At the ghost game in Sinsheim, the Frankfurters were on the trigger in the first minutes. After a free kick by Filip Kostic, the Colombian Borre had the lead on his head (7th), but the ball landed next to the goal.

The hosts, who had to do without Florian Grillitsch, Ermin Bicakcic, Jacob Bruun Larsen, Marco John and Robert Skov, had an extremely difficult time in the beginning. The lead of Eintracht by Borre after a cross from Jesper Lindström was no surprise. Even after the hit, the guests determined what happened in the pouring rain. The second goal of Eintracht was in the air, at Hoffenheim not much was possible. The compensation by Geiger’s remarkable long-range shot fell more or less out of nowhere.

The goal caused a break in the Frankfurt game, TSG immediately took command. Rutter’s goal after a failed defense by Eintracht goalkeeper Kevin Trapp turned the game in favor of Hoffenheim. Shortly afterwards, Rutter could even have increased the lead (33rd). At the beginning of the second round, the Frankfurters went back to work more resolutely. Borre was close to equalizing after just a few seconds. Even afterwards, Eintracht pushed for the second goal, and it got tricky in the TSG penalty area several times.

On the other hand, the Kraichgauer had counter-chances. Geiger missed the chance for the third Hoffenheim goal in the 54th minute. After just under an hour, Samassekou punished the open style of play in Frankfurt, who had already exposed their defense extremely early on. Substitute Pacienca made the game exciting again.
