Svensson Joker Stick: Mainz 05 Ends Leverkusens Series
Leverkusens Coach Gerardo Seoane did not expect many goals before the game – and was taught a better. The Mainzer, which operated with the same eleven as at 1: 1 in Freiburg, showed away from the kick-off, why they had lost only a home game this season. Bayer was seen in the initial phase, the FSV pressed the Werkself very early, which otherwise so combined Leverkusen made many misplaces. Widmer and Lee put the first financial statements of the game over the gate (3.), then Demirbay reported the guests in the offensive (7.).
Compared to the 4: 2 home win against Stuttgart returned to Bayer Tah in the starting eleven and replaced the blocked Bakker, for defensive stability, the 26-year-old could not worry for the time being. Mainz remained in – and went through stach almost in the lead: the hidden and sharp left-hand shot from 17 meters Hradecky defeated strongly (13.). By the 20th minute, the pace remained very high, Zentner waiver a Schlenzer from Andrich (16th), and Hradecky resisted a shot of Widmer with the foot (17.).
As a result, the guests stabilized, acted forward but still too inaccurate. After half an hour, Burkardt and Onisiwo did not play a counterattack good, five minutes later that was punished by Schick: The Czech moved from 25 meters left with left, Niakhaté changed the race of the ball. The ball fell down in the left corner, Zentner was powerless – 0: 1.
Send injured out – Aaron aligns
The Leverkusen leadership from nothing brought the FSV but not out of the concept, until the break, the Svensson-elf continued to be brave. Only the last consequence was missing, but that changed after resourceing.
For Leverkusen, the second pass started first with a shock, chic had to be from the square after 48 minutes with a calf injury. Without the scorer Bayer did not take place offensively in the episode, Mainz increased pressure again. After 57 minutes came the FSV for deserving compensation, Aaron sank a free kick from 20 meters in the left corner.
Alario under the latte
Shortly thereafter Onisiwo almost turned the score on her head, but his head goal after a free-kick of Aaron was withdrawn, as Niakhaté was standing in the away and actively engaging. For Leverkusen this was a wake-up call, then Bayer invested more forward again. First, Demirbay brought the ball from a short distance to the gate, but shortly thereafter Alario made for the renewed lead: a template of Diaby closed the Schick replacement from twelve meters directly and sank the ball under the lath (74.).
Ingvartsen puts the game on the head
The Mainzer seemed in the sequence whether the permanently high intensity a little flat, Svensson noticed that and brought with Boetius, Ingvartsen and Burgzorg three fresh offensive forces (82nd). The change showed effect, boetus carried promptly for compensation: from 16 meters, the Dutchman took a rebounder directly and brought this worth in the right corner. Euphorized mainz was still all forward – and actually turned the game. Out of the spirit, Ingvartsen seven meters in front of the gate to complete, the ball hit the bottom right (88.).
Leverkusen seemed perplexed, was punished for a too harmless appearance. Five minutes were replaced, not only the Werkself shot more on goal. So the series of guests, who had previously won four times in a row. Meanwhile, Mainz rewarded himself for a strong mentality and remains a power from its own audience. Next matchday (Saturday, 15.30 clock), the FSV is a guest at Union Berlin. Leverkusen receives at the same time Arminia Bielefeld.
