The gag goal of this recovery is there.
If Borussia Mönchengladbach could not do anything to thwart the defense of Werder Bremen (0-0), that of Leverkusen sank against the attack of Wolfsburg (1-4). While those of Frankfurt and Friborg have proven their cracks (3-3).
Bayer Leverkusen 1-4 Wolfsbourg Goals: Baumgartlinger (86th) for Bayer // Pongračić (43rd and 75th), Arnold (65th) and Steffen (68th) for Wolfsbourg
Fatigue? Lack of audience? A poorly digested meal? It's impossible to know what happened to the Bayer Leverkusen players, but one thing is certain: they don't look like those who have been racing their opponents for 7 days. Like a Kai Havertz muzzled by the defense orchestrated around Marin Pongračić. Except that the Croatian defender was not satisfied with his role and even made an overshoot by twice taking the lead a millimeter free kick from Maximilian Arnold (0-1, 42nd and 0-4, 75th). In the meantime, the same Arnold has proven that he can also take his free kicks straight, by sending a mine flush with the ground deflected by the wall (0-2, 63rd). And Renato Steffen took advantage of an outflow from João Victor to make his head game speak (0-3, 67th). What about Leverkusen? As many occasions as lines on their list of achievements. Or one, a goal from Julian Baumgartlinger's fox from the surface (1-4, 86th). With this defeat, the Bayer leaves the top 4 and sees his evening opponent return to 11 points.

Eintracht Frankfurt 3-3 Friborg Goals: André Silva (35th), Kamada (79th) and Chandler (82nd for Frankfurt // Grifo (28th), Petersen (67th) and Holer (70th) for Friborg
The advantage of seeing two cardboard defenses to face each other is to see goals. And this Eintracht Frankfurt-Freiburg was no exception to the rule. Vincenzo Grifo first opened the scoring for visitors to a mine under the bar (0-1, 28th) Before André Silva took advantage of a strike from Daichi Kamada repulsed by the opposing goalkeeper to tie (1-1, 34th) Is that all? For the first period, yes. the second will be even crazier, since Nils Petersen only needs eight minutes after entering the game to place a violent header (1-2, 66th). And that Lucas Höler proves that Kevin Trapp always struggling with face-to-face (1-3, 69th.) And while Frankfurt is already chained a sixth consecutive defeat in the Bundesliga, the defense of Freiburg does anything and allows and Daichi Kamada to give some hope (2-3, 79th). Before Timothy Chandler offered a well-deserved equalization in Frankfurt on his first ball of the game (3-3, 82nd). Bing. A draw that doesn’t help anyone.
Kai Havertz has made history in the Bundesliga
Impressive this season and especially since the return of competition to Germany, the young 20-year-old striker has set a new Bundesliga record. Already the author of four goals in three "post Covid-19" games, Kai Havertz made a further statement on Friday by signing the goal for Leverkusen's victory on the Freiburg lawn, allowing him to raise his total achievements to 11 this season, and his team to temporarily climb to third place in the ...

Werder Bremen 0-0 Borussia Mönchengladbach
The downside to seeing two good goalkeepers face off is to see few goals. And this Werder Bremen-Borussia Mönchengladbach was no exception to the rule. And this, despite numerous opportunities on both sides. Except that Gladbach could count on a Yann Sommer of the great evenings. The Swiss goalkeeper was particularly imperial on attempts by Milot Rashica (51st) and Davie Selke (90th). While his counterpart Jiří Pavlenka also drew some crazy parades in front of Marcus Thuram (11th), whose speed hurt the Werder, and Florian Neuhaus (38th). With this draw, the Werder remains relegated, but confirms its recovery.
Werder (4-3-3): Pavlenka - Gebre Selassie, Veljković, Moisander, Friedl - M.Eggestein, Gross, Klaassen - Rashica (Bartels, 86th), Osako (Bittencourt, 62nd), Sargent (Selke, 74th). Coach: Florian Kohfeldt.
Mönchengladbach (3-4-1-2): Sommer - Jantschke (Bensebaini, 71st), Ginter, Elvedi - Lainer, Kramer (Benes, 82nd), Neuhaus, Wendt - Stidl (Hofmann, 71st) - Pléa, Thuram (Herrmann , 82e). Coach: Marco Rose.
