After two straight losses against Mainz and Bayern, Eintracht Frankfurt bounced back with an impressive 4-1 away victory versus Hertha.

Despite not starting the game and entering the action at half-time to play just 45 minutes, Andre Silva emerged as the man of the match and indeed the best player in this round of Bundesliga fixtures.

With his side down 1-0 at the break, he came on to help change the game, and turned the scoreline around initially with a headed assist for Bas Dost to make it 1-1 followed by a goal of his own tucked home after a wonderful dribble from Daichi Kamada set him up.

He would only attempt 11 passes in his half-game outing, but he was there to finish another chance to make it 4-1 with a brilliant, flashed finish above the keeper into the roof of the net.

The Portuguese won 100% of his aerial duels, too, and made three ball recoveries for his team.

HONOURABLE MENTION

Two other players impressed with two-goal hauls for their respective sides this weekend.

Davy Klaassen (8.7) scored two with a commanding header and a thumping volley as Werder Bremen beat Paderborn 5-1.

RB Leipzig's good run continued with a 2-0 away win versus Hoffenheim, meanwhile, with Dani Olmo (8.4) scoring both goals.

ROUND TO FORGET

Speaking of Paderborn, it was certainly a round to forget as they were thumped by Bremen, but in particular for defender Jan Luca Rumpf (4.9). In 90 minutes, he didn't attempt a single tackle and lost half his duels and aerial duels, while he lost possession no less than 14 times.
