(EFE) – The goals of the Argentine Lucas Alario and the Jamaican Leon Bailey gave Bayer Leverkusen the victory against Eintracht Frankfurt (3-1), in which Serbian Luka Jovic, a forward on loan from Real Madrid, was a substitute – he played the last quarter of an hour – and his position to play in the soccer Champions League threatened.
Eintracht were unable to score at BayArena where they conceded their fifth defeat of the season. It maintains the fourth position in the Bundesliga but is already feeling the encouragement of Borussia Dortmund, who beat Wolfsburg and is just one point away, in full bid to enter the Champions zone.
The visiting coach, the Austrian Adi Hütter, left Jovic on the bench, whom he resorted to in the last quarter of an hour, after Bayer Leverkusen, who aspires to a European position, went ahead with Bailey’s goal from a pass from Moussa Diaby.
It was Lucas Alario who sentenced the crash in 80, three minutes after having replaced Patrik Schick. The Argentine beat Kevin Trapp after receiving a ball from Bailey.
In added time the game was agitated. Eintracht closed the gap with a header from Portuguese Andre Silva but Bayer recovered their income with Kerem Demirbay’s goal with a shot on the edge of the area.
