Disillusionment instead of euphoria: The furious offensive from Bayer Leverkusen is out of the kick at home FSV Mainz 05.
After a completely uninspired appearance, the Werkself had to be beaten with 2: 3 (1: 0) and missed it to increase the pressure on the weakening BVB in the football league. The residue in second place is five points.
Torjäger Patrik Schick (35.) With his 20th goal of the season and Lucas Alario (74th) brought the team of coach Gerardo Seoane twice in leadership, Aaron Martin (57th), Jean-Paul Boetius (84th) and Marcus Ingvartsen ( 88.) But the game turned in favor of the strong Mainz. For Leverkusen it was a damper in the fight for the royal class after four wins in a row.
“It’s annoying, Mainz has not won undeserved. We were not there in the crucial moments,” Leverkusen’s goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky said at “Dazn”: “If that happens against such a aggressive team like Mainz, then the goals do.”
5: 1, 5: 2, 4: 2 – Thus, the latest results of the Werkself loud. In vain, Bo Svensson had warned in advance of the tillpower of the Best Round Team of the League. He is currently holding Leverkusen for “the team that plays the best football in the Bundesliga,” said the FSV coach.
In the intense initial phase, the highly gifted Leverkusen had to be demonstrated by 10,000 fans but initially defensively. The Mainzer, who ran in their carnival jerseys, placed the defense about StartTelf returnees Jonathan Tah before problems – the Bayer offensive stayed pale.
FSV Mainz 05 turns in the final phase
Instead, goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky preserved his team before an early residue. First, the Finn parried outstanding against Anton Stach (13th), then he defended the conclusion of Silvan Widmer (16th). At the best Mainz chance Karim Onisiwo (30th) did not hit the ball in front of the empty goal.
The arrow-fast attackers of the guests fell little against the passionate FSV. Hardly tempo, little urge forward – in the leadership, the Werkself also needed the support of the Mainz. The harmless distance shot of the same counterfined the Mainz Moussa Niakhate unhappy.
Shortly after the break, the scorer then had to hurt and Leverkusen in front of the eyes of national coach Hansi Flick continue to deal with the pressure of homeland. Seoanes Eleven did not breathe and promptly received the punishment. Martin Schlenzte a free kick worth seeing for deserving compensation in the gate.
The hit by Onisiwo (60th) was taken back according to the video images of the referee Benjamin Cortus. Only following this scene Bayer dared once more of his own half, but without care for real danger from the opposing gate. From nothing, alario briefly struck, boetius and Ingvartsen countered in a furious final phase.
