Bundesliga results: Carlo Ancelotti slams Bayern Munich’s ‘bad attitude’ after draw against Eintracht Frankfurt



BERLIN // Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has slammed the Bundesliga leaders' 'bad attitude' after Saturday's 2-2 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt leaves them without a win in three games.

After last month’s 1-0 Uefa Champions League defeat at Atletico Madrid and their 1-1 league draw with Cologne before the international break, this was neither the performance nor the result Ancelotti wanted.

“We didn’t play well and showed a bad attitude,” he said. “We were asleep for the first 45 minutes, which is too much in any game.

“I have to change that, I want to see my team. I’ll have to think about changes.”

Despite the draw, Bayern maintain a two-point lead in the Bundesliga ahead of Wednesday’s key Champions League game at home to PSV Eindhoven.

Bayern’s Arjen Robben and Frankfurt’s Szabolcs Huszti both scored first-half goals.

After Germany international Joshua Kimmich put Bayern ahead, Frankfurt had Huszti sent off, but Mexico midfielder Marco Fabian scored their crucial second equaliser 12 minutes from time.

Ancelotti started with striker Robert Lewandowski on the bench in Frankfurt as it emerged winger Franck Ribery is out for the next three weeks with a fresh injury.

Robben cut back inside and fired a superb shot at a tight angle past Frankfurt’s Finland goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky with just 10 minutes gone.

Bayern lived dangerously, despite dominating possession.

With 15 minutes gone, Frankfurt’s Timothy Chandler hit the inside post, then Alexander Meier’s bullet-header was saved by Bayern’s Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Huszti put Frankfurt level just before the break when the midfielder took advantage of a lucky bounce to get behind the Bayern defence and slot home on 43 minutes. It was Frankfurt’s first goal against Bayern since 2011.

Kimmich put Bayern ahead when he got on the end of Hummels’s pass and netted on 62 minutes for his sixth goal in his last seven games for his club.

To add insult to injury, Eintracht were reduced to 10 men for the last 25 minutes when Huszti was shown a red card for a second bookable offence.

But Frankfurt hit back and when US international Chandler swung in a shot, Fabian chested the ball into the empty net.

Bayern are two points clear of second-placed Cologne, who are enjoying their best start to the season since the Bundesliga started in 1963.

French striker Anthony Modeste scored both goals in the first half, including a converted penalty, in a 2-1 win at Ingolstadt, for whom Lukas Hinterseer netted a late penalty.

The result saw Ingolstadt drop to the bottom of the table, replacing Hamburg, who picked up a point in a goalless draw at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Gladbach, at Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday, missed two penalties as Lars Stindl fired his spot kick off the crossbar after Andre Hahn had his first-half effort saved.

Unbeaten Hoffenheim are fifth after their 2-1 win at Freiburg, thanks to goals from Sandro Wagner and a Andrej Kramaric penalty.

Algeria midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scored his first goal for Schalke, thanks to goal-line technology, in a 1-1 draw at Augsburg.

His bullet shot from 17 yards out bounced over the line and out of the goal before Daniel Baier equalised.

Schalke’s teenage Swiss striker Breel Embolo is expected to miss the rest of the year after breaking his left ankle.

Bayer Leverkusen, who host Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Tuesday, suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at Werder Bremen.

Hakan Calhanoglu’s first-half header was cancelled out by goals from Bremen’s Zlatko Junuzovic and Ousman Manneh.

The result lifts Bremen to 13th while Leverkusen drop to ninth in the table.

On Friday, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a penalty and hit the bar before scoring to earn fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund a 1-1 home draw against third-placed Hertha Berlin as both sides ended with 10 men.

Tax authority targets shisha levy evasion

The Federal Tax Authority will track shisha imports with electronic markers to protect customers and ensure levies have been paid.

Khalid Ali Al Bustani, director of the tax authority, on Sunday said the move is to "prevent tax evasion and support the authority’s tax collection efforts".

The scheme’s first phase, which came into effect on 1st January, 2019, covers all types of imported and domestically produced and distributed cigarettes. As of May 1, importing any type of cigarettes without the digital marks will be prohibited.

He said the latest phase will see imported and locally produced shisha tobacco tracked by the final quarter of this year.

"The FTA also maintains ongoing communication with concerned companies, to help them adapt their systems to meet our requirements and coordinate between all parties involved," he said.

As with cigarettes, shisha was hit with a 100 per cent tax in October 2017, though manufacturers and cafes absorbed some of the costs to prevent prices doubling.

How the UAE gratuity payment is calculated now

Employees leaving an organisation are entitled to an end-of-service gratuity after completing at least one year of service.

The tenure is calculated on the number of days worked and does not include lengthy leave periods, such as a sabbatical. If you have worked for a company between one and five years, you are paid 21 days of pay based on your final basic salary. After five years, however, you are entitled to 30 days of pay. The total lump sum you receive is based on the duration of your employment.

1. For those who have worked between one and five years, on a basic salary of Dh10,000 (calculation based on 30 days):

a. Dh10,000 ÷ 30 = Dh333.33. Your daily wage is Dh333.33

b. Dh333.33 x 21 = Dh7,000. So 21 days salary equates to Dh7,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service. Multiply this figure for every year of service up to five years.

2. For those who have worked more than five years

c. 333.33 x 30 = Dh10,000. So 30 days’ salary is Dh10,000 in gratuity entitlement for each year of service.

Note: The maximum figure cannot exceed two years total salary figure.
