A little more than half an hour, while Schalke managed to prevent the team from Berlin from scoring. In the end, it was Matteo Guendouzi who was thoughtful enough to tap into a rebound. Shortly after the break it was immediately over for Schalke. Jhon Cordoba put the club from Berlin on a safe 2-0 lead. Hertha BSC could have hurt Schalke this game a lot more, but it only scored three times. Krzystof Piatek signed for the 3-0 final score ten minutes before time.
Amin Younes knocks Peter Bosz
Bayer Leverkusen has again suffered damage in the battle for the German title. The team of trainer Peter Bosz, the number 2 of the Bundesliga, lost 2-1 on a visit to Eintracht Frankfurt, partly due to old acquaintance Amin Younes.
Leverkusen took the lead after nine minutes, after Nadiem Amiri worked the ball behind Frankfurt goalie Kevin Trapp after an assist from the young talent Florian Wirtz with a nice heel.
However, the visitors could not enjoy their lead for really long. Barely fifteen minutes after the opening goal, Younes put the equalizer on the scoreboard.

In the second half, it was defender Edmond Tapsoba who killed Leverkusen with an own goal. Bosz brought three fresh forces in the 71st minute with Kerem Demirbay, Karim Bellarabi and Lucas Alario, but it didn’t help. Leverkusen, where Dutchman Daley Sinkgraven was missing due to a positive corona test, lost for the second game in a row. Just before the turn of the year it also went down against Bayern Munich.
Younes, who worked with Bosz at Ajax, made his first goal against Leverkusen since he returned to the Bundesliga at Frankfurt at the beginning of this season. The 27-year-old winger is hired by the Germans from Napoli. He was previously under contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach and 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Eintracht Frankfurt currently occupies eighth place in the Bundesliga. Bas Dost left the club this winter break. Bayern striker Joshua Zirkzee is named as a possible replacement.
Sheraldo Becker played an important part in the victory of 1. FC Union Berlin at Werder Bremen: 0-2. The Dutch attacker took the first goal in the 12th minute. At Bremen, Tahith Chong was only allowed to participate in the last fifteen minutes. Union Berlin has risen to fifth place due to the win.
