Haaland moves away from the Champions

The goal 'in extremis' of the Portuguese forward is worth its weight in gold. Eintracht surpasses Dortmund by seven points in their fight to qualify for the Champions League.


Erling Haaland is not a guarantee of Champions. Borussia Dortmund's crack could not prevent a very painful defeat of his team by 1-2 against Eintracht Frankfurt, which is a real setback in the face of BVB's fight to qualify again for the Champions League. The victory away from home for the Hessian team, fourth classified and direct rival of the Negriamarillos in the fight for the Champions League, extends the difference with respect to Borussia in fifth position to a total of seven points with seven days remaining. He did so thanks to the in extremis goal of the imperial André Silva who, also, eclipsed Luka Jovic with his twenty-second goal in the highest German competition. And the latter was worth its weight in gold.

It was the team led by Edin Terzic that took the initiative from the opening whistle. Possession was for those in black-yellow. They came more clearly to the area defended by Kevin Trapp. But it was the eagles that were most effective at the top. Nico Schulz tried to clear a Filip Kostić cross with a header and sent the ball into the back of the net. The script of the clash did not change despite the goal, with the Borusser team maintaining control of a match that, deservedly, ended up drawing in the final stages of the first half. It was Mats Hummels who took advantage of an assist from Emee Can with his chest to go to the changing rooms with the tables in the signal Iduna Park light.

Haaland and Jovic started from the start, but it was the Norwegian who came closest to getting wet twice in the first half. He forgave. Ilsanker did not do it to center of the Kostiç until the VAR decided to annul the so much by offside of the Austrian. André Silva also warned from an Eintracht that ended up being superior to a Dortmund that opted for the cons when it came to taking three vital points in the face of the fight for the Champions League. It did not succeed. Haaland was not fine. And without the Norwegian's punch, the goals that André Silva usually contributes with the same frequency as the child prodigy of Europe are missing. With three minutes remaining, the Portuguese striker appeared again, materialized another center of the star Kostiç and gave the eagles a victory that keeps the Champions dream more alive than ever in the Hessian town.Marcus Thuram gives the victory to Mönchengladbach

A double in seven minutes by Marcus Thuram led to the comeback against Freiburg of Borussia Mönchengladbach (2-1), who added their second win in a row to consolidate the improvement they showed on the last date.

Marco Rose's team went on to accumulate six games without winning and five losses in a row that he left behind with the victory against bottom side Schalke in the last session.

The home team was put against the scoreboard when the Hungarian Roland Sallai brought a pass from the Bosnian Ermedin Demirovic into the net in the 10th minute.It was in the second half that Borussia was able to turn the situation around. Thuram beat Florian Muller after receiving a ball from Lars Stindl and seven minutes later, at game time, he scored again after a cross from Christoph Kramer.

Freiburg scored, through Keven Schlotterbeck, in added time, but VAR invalidated the goal for offside.

The victory brings Marco Rose's team closer to the European zone. He is seventh, four points behind Bayer Leverkusen, which marks the places of continental competitions. Christian Streich's Freiburg falls to ninth place.
