Borussia Dortmund defeated Eintracht Frankfurt after a comeback

Borussia Dortmund welcomed Eintracht Frankfurt to their home ground and secured three crucial points after a comeback victory (3:1).

Things didn’t look so good for the Millionaires at the start of the match. Just 13 minutes into the game, the visitors threatened through Marmoush, whose shot was saved by the home team’s goalkeeper, but Gece was in the right place to give Eintracht the lead after the rebound.

Borussia responded through Reus and Filkrug five minutes later, but the score remained unchanged.

The equalizer for the Millionaires came from Adeyemi in the 33rd minute after a brilliant move where he comfortably put the ball into the opponent’s net.

Marmoush could have restored Eintracht’s lead towards the end of the first half, but his goal was disallowed for offside.

Marmoush remained a threat to the goal in the second half, forcing the Borussia goalkeeper to make another save to keep his net safe.

As is often the case, after a large number of missed chances, punishment follows.

In the 81st minute of the match, Brandt found Hummels after a set-piece, and he headed the ball into the opponent’s net for 2:1.

The demoralized Eintracht totally collapsed in the remainder of the match, resulting in another conceded goal.

After a clumsy challenge, the referee awarded a penalty to Borussia in the 85th minute. Emre Jan stepped up to the ball and calmly beat the goalkeeper for the final score of 3:1.

With this victory, the Millionaires surpassed Leipzig in the table and are now in fourth place with 50 points, while Eintracht is sixth with ten points behind.
