Eintracht Frankfurt - Dost turns the game - sport
Frankfurt's new attacker secures a 2-1 victory over Dusseldorf. Ante Rebic will move to AC Milan with Andre Silva.
His first action: a foul. His second action: a taken out free kick in a promising position. His third action: a sharp cross, which found no taker in the middle. And his fourth action: the goal to equalize, with which his team began to turn the game. Eintracht Frankfurt won 2-1 (0-1) against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Sunday night - and it was a win in which new Dutch striker Bas Dost, 30, played a significant role.
Last week, the former Wolfsburg was hired as a replacement for the outgoing top striker Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller of Sporting Lisbon; among other things with the recommendation of 76 hits in 84 league games for his former club. Against Dost took Dost now first on the bench at the square, but at least he was there at all, while the Croatian Ante Rebic at his own request was not in the squad. Shortly after the game Frankfurt's sports director Fredi Bobic announced that Rebic will change to AC Milan. For this purpose, Milan, subject to final formalities, the 33-time Portuguese international Andre Silva on loan to concord. Rebic had a great desire to go to a big club and to Italy, Bobic said; and Silva is "a great player, he will bring in a very different note".
Frankfurt were initially the traces of their wild 3: 0 against Strasbourg on Thursday to be noted. Dusseldorf was the defining team - and in the fourth minute, the ball even landed after a skillful free-kick variant in the net. But the hit did not count because Frankfurt's Makoto Hasebe had been illegally blocked. And just as the SBU was about to stabilize at least somewhat, the guests took the lead. A quick throw - not the only scene in which the Düsseldorfer seemed significantly faster thought - was the basis, and in the end Rouwen Hennings headed the ball to 1: 0 in the net.
Frankfurt held off with a volley from Daichi Kamada (44 '), and after half time Dost came into play. He immediately radiated a very different presence and danger and seemed to literally sweep his elf along. Although Hennings missed the first chance of the second half for Dusseldorf, but then took over Frankfurt. Filip Kostic fired the free-kick that Dost had pulled so hard that Zackary Steffen was just able to parry it. And in the 57th minute Dost scored his first Bundesliga goal for exactly 1234 days: rival Goncalo Paciencia lost his opponent and crossed into the middle, and Dost headed to the 1-1.
The Frankfurt were now the better team and acted much more concentrated. In the last ten minutes Paciencia and Kamada awarded first, before it worked but still with the winner. After a cross from the right, Paciencia finished in the middle.
