Frankfurt down Leipzig amid fans protest

KP Boateng Scores Stunning Goal As Eintracht Frankfurt Hummer RB Leipzig

Fans flood pitch with tennis balls in Bundesliga Monday night protest

Before the beginning of the second half, tennis balls were thrown and toilet rolls hurled at the goals.

But probably not in the way that the Guinea worldwide managed during RB Leipzig's game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Monday night in the Bundesliga. Leipzig were awarded a penalty when Rebic appeared to tangle with Sabitzer - but yet again this weekend VAR was consulted and ruled against the award of the penalty, despite replays suggesting a tangle of legs in the box that would have warranted a spot-kick.

Fans refused to take their seats, instead surrounding the pitch and unleashing wave after wave of tennis balls onto the pitch, resulting in the match being delayed for six minutes.

But the setback spurred Frankfurt to action.

A Frankfurt supporters' club said in a statement last week they had to "make it clear they did not like it". Many Dortmund fans have indicated they will boycott their home game against Augsburg next week, when again few visiting supporters are expected.

Watch Out For Scams This Tax Season
Pamela Caron, owner of Mary Lewis tax service, says that any phone call from the IRS should raise red flags. Erb said the IRS just detected the scam around February 1, after a few hundred complaints from taxpayers.

They find themselves in fifth in the Bundesliga having been leapfrogged by Frankfurt after Monday's match.

The hosts won an entertaining game 2-1 to move up to third in the table.

The game which delayed slightly at the Commerzbank-Arena saw Leipzig taking an early lead when Konrad Laimer burst forward and cut a neat ball back for Jean-Kevin Augustin to sweep home in the 13 minute.

On the stroke of half-time, Keita caught Makoto Hasebe with a late tackle and the Japan global was not happy with the challenge.
