Bayer Leverkusen 3:1 Eintracht Frankfurt Player Ratings 2023- Wirtz shines for B04

The Leverkusen Eintrach Frankfurt was one of the highly awaited ones from the most recent round of Bundesliga fixtures, and the home side notched up their seventh straight win across all competitions with a 3:1 win.

Leverkusen fans would’ve been delighted to see young Florian Wirtz with two assists to his name- the highly talented teenager, if you remember, has recovered well after suffering an ACL around this time last year.

Here are the Bild player ratings for Leverkusen vs Frankfurt- Wirtz bags a 1 (technically the highest possible) as does defender Jonathan Tah.

The win saw B04 leapfrog Eintracht in the league standings.

No German team in Europa League Round of 16 2021 | Leverkusen & Hoffenheim knocked out in Round of 32

There will be no German team in the Europa League Round of 16 for the 2020/21 season after both Bayer Leverkusen and TSG Hoffenheim crashed out of the competition on Thursday night.

When the draw was made, both Bayer and TSG had winnable ties against Young Boys and Molde respectively. Leverkusen were beaten 2-0 at the Bay Arena, thus giving Young Boys a 6-3 aggregate win after the first leg had ended 4-3 in favour of the Swiss side.

Hoffenheim dominated, but had nothing to show for it in terms of goals and went down 2-0 at home (and 3-5 on aggregate)

Wolfsburg get Shakhtar, Leverkusen draw Rangers | EL Round of 16 Draw

The draw for the Europa League Round of 16 has been made, and it’s thrown up some very interesting ties for the three German sides left in the competition. Bayer Leverkusen will face Rangers, Wolfsburg have been drawn against Shakhtar Donetsk and Eintracht Frankfurt will square off against Basel.

Wolfsburg’s draw is perhaps the toughest- Shakhtar have European pedigree, and have often proved tough nuts to crack. On paper, Leverkusen will be relatively satisfied with a draw against Rangers, who are the sole Scottish side left in the competition after Celtic’s exit at the hands of FC Copenhagen.

The games will take place on 12 and 19 March. Wolfsburg are at home for the first leg, while Leverkusen and Frankfurt will both be travelling for their respective first legs.
