Frankfurt extend Bayern’s winless run
BAYERN MUNICH coach Carlo Ancelotti has slammed Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich’s ‘ bad attitude’ after yesterday’s 2-2 draw at ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt leaves them without a win in three games.
“We didn’t play well and showed a bad attitude,” fumed Ancelotti. “We were asleep for the first 45 minutes, which is too much in any game.
“I have to change that, I want to see my team (play). I’ll have to think about changes.”
Bayern’s Arjen Robben and Frankfurt’s Szabolcs Huszti both scored first-half goals.
After Germany international Joshua Kimmich put Bayern ahead, Frankfurt had Huszti sent off, but Mexico midfielder Marco Fabian scored their crucial second equaliser 12 minutes from time.
It was Frankfurt’s first goal against Bayern since 2011. To add insult to injury, Eintracht were reduced to ten men for the last 25 minutes when Huszti was shown a red card for a second bookable offence.
Bayern are two points clear of secondplaced Cologne, who are enjoying their best start to the season since the Bundesliga started in 1963.
French striker Anthony Modeste scored both goals in the first-half including a converted penalty in a 2-1 win at Ingolstadt, for whom Lukas Hinterseer netted a late penalty.
Unbeaten Hoffenheim are fifth after their 2-1 win at Freiburg, thanks to goals from Sandro Wagner and a Andrej Kramaric penalty.
Algeria midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scored his first goal for Schalke, thanks to goal-line technology, in a 1-1 draw at Augsburg.
Bayer Leverkusen, who host Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League tomorrow, suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at Werder Bremen. – AFP
