Balogun makes 50th Bundesliga appearance in Mainz 05 loss


Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun made his 50th Bundesliga appearance playing for his Mainz 05 clubside in their derby clash against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. 

Balogun who missed last week’s match against Schalke 04 due to suspension however had a day to forget as they lost 3-0 to Frankfurt.

Mainz conceded all 3 goals in the first half of the encounter with the host proving to be the better side.

Though they failed to score, Leon Balogun’s Mainz played better in the second half with the other Nigerian on it’s books, Anthony Ujah being a constant threat to Frankfurt.

Ujah was subbed off in the 55th minute for Yoshinori Muto but his introduction changed nothing for Mainz.

Balogun joined Mainz from Darmstadt in 2015 and has continued to be a key player for the club.
