night in the Bundesliga, Robin Koch and Max Wober, two Leeds United loanees, faced off against each other.
In what ended up being an amazing match for both players, Wober’s Borussia Monchengladbach took on Koch’s Eintracht Frankfurt in the last game before Germany’s winter break.
Wober started things off when he scored the first goal of the match shortly before the break, giving Gladbach the lead that they maintained until the second half’s additional time.
However, Wober might feel somewhat responsible for his team’s loss after being sent off in the 88th minute, as Aurelio Buta of Frankfurt equalised in the 92nd minute.
After that, Koch had the last laugh over his former Leeds teammate when he pulled off an amazing comeback to score Frankfurt’s winning goal in the 97th minute.
Leeds pair playing in amazing match
Koch looks to be getting back on track after a few off performances recently as he looks to earn a spot in Germany’s squad for the European Championships in the summer.
Koch was reportedly left “inconsolable” after having to withdraw from the November internationals due to an injury, even though he had been expecting to be called up.
It has taken him a few weeks to regain the form he shown in the beginning of his loan stint at Frankfurt, where director Markus Krosche praised him for his impact on the team’s defensive.
Wober, on the other hand, has performed admirably for Gladbach since joining on loan, and considering how much they have liked what he has shown, they may decide to sign him permanently.
But after being sent out on Wednesday night, he probably felt guilty for his team’s loss to Koch’s Frankfurt, and he will now have until the New Year to think about it.
