Out in the Round of 16! Leipzig lose 3-1 in Frankfurt

Olmo's goal not enough (69') | Penalty, misplaced pass and a late decider | Out of the DFB-Pokal

Out of the Pokal! It's tough to take. Three unnecessary goals to concede and two many squandered chances mean RB Leipzig get knocked ouf of the DFB-Pokal by Eintracht Frankfurt. It ended 3-1 to SGE.

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.
