Eintracht Frankfurt strolled past Bayer Leverkusen with a 5-1 win on Saturday at the Commerzbank Arena. Frankfurt arrived at the match looking to pick up more points after losing their last match 3-0 to Bochum. Bayer were looking to extend their winning run after a 4-0 victory against Schalke. Frankfurt and Bayer are 4th, (17 points) and 16th, (8 points), in the table respectively, after 10 matches.

The Eagles didn’t take long to get on the score-sheet, when Daichi Kamada opened the rout just before half-time

Bayer took the initiative in the second half, when Piero Hincapie found the net, at 56 minutes. However, each side looked hungry to win and Frankfurt then found the back of the net, 58 minutes in thanks to Randal Kolo Muani, taking the score to 2-1. Frankfurt looked to have the match under control when they scored again to grab the advantage, thanks to a goal from Jesper Lindstrom in the 65th minute to establish a 3-1. The momentum was again with The Eagles, who then scored again courtesy of a second effort from Daichi Kamada, 72 minutes in to establish a 4-1 result. However they weren’t finished yet and Lucas Alario made it 5-1 just before the full time to make it 5-1.

Substitutions for Frankfurt included Sebastian Rode, Rafael Borre, Faride Alidou, Lucas Alario and Marcel Wenig for Djibril Sow, Jesper Lindstrom, Eric Ebimbe, Randal Kolo Muani and Daichi Kamada, respectively. Bayer brought on Kerem Demirbay, Nadiem Amiri, Odilon Kossounou, Adam Hlozek and Daley Sinkgraven for Charles Aranguiz, Paulinho, Moussa Diaby, Patrik Schick and Mitchel Bakker.
