Frankfurt bagged a home win against Bayern 2-1 it ended. First-half goals from Daichi Kamada and Amin Younes were enough for Adi Hutter led- side to down the Bavarians, such that Robert Lewandoski’s goal at the 53rd minute of the match could not even level a goal deficit at the Deutsche Bank Park.
Hansi Flick’s men last tasted a league defeat from Marco Rose’s Borussia Monchengladbach on January 8. It is believed that the German side experienced a little fatigue from a couple of fixtures, including fixtures from the FIFA World Club Cup at which they secured- being the second club to bag a sextet after Barcelona.
Bayern’s last league fixture ended in a 2-2 stalemate against Arminia who are placed twelfth. This means under teams under leagues will raise their oars in contending for the German crown, at which fourth place Frankfurt is among those teams, having extended their eight-match unbeaten run against Bayern.
However, the display of the 27-year-old German was praised by Low, as he was involved in the outstanding victory against Bayern
“Younes had a very good game. He’s gradually finding his rhythm again. His technique and orientation are great. He’s a player who can resolve one-on-one situations in the best way.” Joachim Low commended the player.
The German coach was asked whether the Monchengladbach product will feature in national colors again. Younes bagged his national team call- even though he’s eligible to play for Lebanon- in May 2017 as part of the squad for the 2017 Confederations Cup. He played his debut against Denmark; he scored his first international goal against San Marino in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. He played five times for Germany, scoring a brace.
“He’s had a lot of really good games before as well, but I thought his performance in the first half was world-class, which he crowned with a world-class goal, I saw the best performance of the season from Amin Younes, since he’s been here.” Frankfurt head coach Adi Hütter said.
Younes will be looking to bag a national call-up in preparation for Euro 2020 at which Germany will be locking on to France Portugal and Hungary in Munich.
However, Frankfurt will hope to close the six-point gap between them and Bayern, when they face Werder Bremen next Friday.
