Judging by the course of the game, I would classify the defeat at Union as completely unnecessary. Bayer controlled the game, but Union counter-attacked dangerously at all times and one of them led to the lucky punch three minutes before the end. It's a shame, because a three-point win would have pushed the Werkself further ahead.
Even if the Union player apologised to Amiri: There is no place for racism in the Bundesliga. Even in the heat of the moment, such remarks are not appropriate, especially as the Bild newspaper also reports that a "similar" remark was directed at Leon Bailey in the 58th minute. Normally, Leverkusen should have won the match, even if this was not justified.
