Borussia Dortmund accepts the 3:3 after five previous wins. Because they remain in the top quartet of the Bundesliga and are already unbeaten 17 times.
Borussia Dortmund’s sports director Sebastian Kehl was not dissatisfied with the 3:3 (1:2) at Eintracht Frankfurt. They remained within striking distance of the top of the table in the Bundesliga.
“We wanted to stay close and extend our series,” he said after Sunday’s draw. Before the guest appearance on the Main, BVB had celebrated five wins in a row. However, the Westphalians have extended their unbeatable streak in the Bundesliga: they have gone 17 league games without defeat. “We have the feeling that we can play better football. Nevertheless, we showed that we are difficult to beat,” said BVB coach Edin Terzic.
Bundesliga top game next Saturday
In the table, Dortmund are still in fourth place with 21 points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen (25), Bayern Munich (23) and VfB Stuttgart (21), who have the same number of points. “We were able to continue the series, not lose and come back,” said Kehl. The guests were behind 1:2 and 2:3. Omar Marmoush (8th minute/hand penalty/24th minute) and Farés Chaibi (68th) scored the Eintracht goals. Marcel Sabitzer (45th), Youssoufa Moukoko (54th) and Julian Brandt (82nd) saved the point. “If you look at how the game went, it was a point won,” said Nico Schlotterbeck.
The group of four has now moved closer together, “which makes it very exciting,” said Kehl. “That’s why it was important to take a point with you and accept it.” He didn’t even want to think about next Saturday’s top Bundesliga game against Bayern because the DFB Cup game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim was coming up on Wednesday.
He does not see the use of goalkeeper Gregor Kobel, who had to be replaced after a blow to the head, at risk. “I don’t think the injury is dramatic. He was hit in the face,” said Kehl. There was initially no diagnosis for the injury to Mats Hummel, who suffered a blow to the calf and also had to leave the field in his 350th Bundesliga game for BVB. Captain Emre Can was spared after an injury. Offensive player Felix Nmecha was missing due to muscular problems.
