Julian Nagelmann's team started the game well, but too many chances went begging. Eintracht opened the scoring from the spot; André Silva converted the penalty to give Frankfurt the lead (17').
In the second half, RBL pushed for the equaliser, but gifted Filip Kostic a goal after a misplaced pass (51'). Leipzig threw everything at it, and pulled a goal back through Dani Olmo (69'). We should've scored more, but too many opportunities were squandered. Kostic rubbed salt in the wounds with a late goal (90'+5).
In the end, it's a bitter 3-1 defeat that means we are no longer in this season's edition of the DFB-Pokal.
