Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich fell to their first defeat of the season on Sunday, as Eintracht Frankfurt got their first win of the season at the most unlikely of places.

It was the Bavarians who took the lead at the Allianz Stadium after almost half an hour, with Leon Goretzka steering home an effort from the edge of the box after the ball broke to him on a quick counter-attack.

The visitors had a swift response, however, with Martin Hinteregger heading home a Filip Kostic corner just three minutes later.

In the second half, Kevin Trapp denied the in-form Robert Lewandowski from point-blank range. Later on, he would also deny Goretzka a second with another magnificent stop.

Kostic, the provider of Eintracht’s first goal, got the winner himself in the 83rd minute with a fierce left-footed drive across goal, which Oliver Glasner’s side held on to take home all three points.

The victory is Eintracht’s first of the season, as well as being Bayern’s first loss, and it comes on the back of four draws.

The result also means that Bayer Leverkusen have the chance to draw level on points with Bayern as we head into the international break, and just four points split the top seven teams in the Bundesliga.
