    They lost 1-3.

    Kamada played very well, but the whole team were out of shape, he was the only bright spot on the team.

    Hasebe came midway through the second half and played well too.

    I think the team needs to replace their top team coach, he does seem to be clueless in fixing the team's problems. There are some good players in the team who can secure a Europa League spot, but the coach seems to be unable to get the pieces together and get the best out of this team.

    His first Bundesliga goal in 22 matches, and 9th in 40 matches in all competitions this season.

    Kamada was unlucky not to score earlier in the Bundesliga as two of his goals were ruled through the VAR as offsides/fouls, some of the goals were credited as own goals instead of being credited to him (as it was the case in Frankfurt's equaliser against Borussia Dortmund), and in many times his shots got smothered by the opposing GK only for one of his teammates to tap it into the goal (as it was the case in Frankfurt's first goal tonight).

    Kamada has been guilty of wasting many chances, as he is clumsy at times when it comes to first touches, as well as his lack of accuracy in front of goal. For example he missed at least 5 chances tonight, with 2 of them being one-on-one chances against the opponent's goalkeeper.

    He almost scored his team's winning goal tonight in two different occasions, but in the first time he shot the ball from a narrow range into the goalkeeper's hands, and in the other one -which was in the last seconds of the injury time- he ballooned the ball over the crossbar as he tried to hit an acrobatic shot.

    He needs to work on the quality of his finishing and first chances, but in a positive note Kamada is fearless and energetic, always trying to shoot or creating chances for his teammates, or pressing the opponents, and he is not intimidated by physical challenges neither he seemed to be frustrated by his inability to record his first Bundesliga goal -until tonight- despite pressure mounting on him. He is clearly the opposite of Takashi Usami in thess aspects.

    Another shortcoming that Kamada is suffering from is that he is vulnerable defensively when he plays wide out on the flanks/wings, as he always edge towards the centre and leave a vacuum on the wing for the opponents to exploit.
    His skill-set is clearly not allowing him to play in the wings, as I believe he is mostly suitable to play behind the striker, or as a second-striker, or as a false 9. He can play slightly on either side of the attacking midfield but clearly not on the wing, with the condition that his team play with 3 central/defensive midfielders to provide enough width in the midfield and halt the opponent's counterattacks.

    If I can resemble him to another Japan NT player, then I think he has some elements similar to Takayuki Suzuki, in terms of physical attributes, energy, and his relentless pressing of the opposing players. The same could be said about Musashi Suzuki, as all of the three are not efficient finishers, even when they compared to other Japanese players, but with their style they are always creating openings either for themselves or for their teammates, with Kamada having an advantage over the other two as he is far more better when it comes to dribbling, crossing, and shooting from distance.

    Hasebe Played a very good game, providing much-needed calmness to Eintracht's defensive zone and assisting the team in building up from the backline.

    He surged forward in rare occasions in this match, and he initiated the play which led to Eintracht Frankfurt's third goal.

    Both started today. Hasebe reached 309 matches played in Buli, a new record for an Asian player in Buli.

    Tomorrow is it time for the semi final in DFB pokal againt Bayern M. Will they do it again? I highly doubt it this time. They are far from the the team they were last time. But who knows.

    Kamada did join the match together with da Costa after 66min, and assisted said da Costa's goal to level the score just 3min after getting on. That was also within Frankfurt's strongest phase that was cruelly stopped with Lewandowski's winner after 74min.

    Assist by Kamada.

    An incredible assist indeed as he cut inside the penalty post from the left flank and dribbled through 3 defenders before passing the ball to Andre Silva to tap it into the goal.

    A very good assist too, he has been so active today as usual, he has 3 threatening shots so far.

    As of now, he is the team's second assist provider with 4 assists.

    According to Kicker it actually was his 6th assist in Buli (+ 2 goals, in DFB cup 2 goals and 1 assist, in EL 6 goals and 2 assists).

    Both Hasebe and Kamada played the whole match. Kamada had a particular strong match, with the longest distance (11.1km), most won duels (13) and most shots (5) in his team. Aside the assist he should have scored a goal today.

    Kamada has one year left on his contract, Eintracht is now trying to extend it over several years ("langfristig", long term, no specific range mentioned publicly so far).
