Frank­furt ex­tend Bay­ern’s win­less run

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

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
