WithYou know men, make a comment. “We want to win,” said Oliver Glasner and Kevin Tropp. There is no compromise when traveling to phosphorus. “Which means we don’t need a slide rule,” Glasner added. The Eintracht coach and his goalkeeper know that on Thursday (6.45pm on the FAZ Live Ticker for the Europa League and RTL +) at Fenerbahçe Istanbul his team was enough to finish first in Group D of the Europa League. To protect.
# Currently, the championship leaders are two points ahead of Olympiacos. But since Intract defeated the Greeks at home and abroad, the direct comparison speaks clearly to Glasner’s team, and that draw was enough. But the Hessians did not want to get involved. Shortly before boarding the flight to the Turkish metropolis on Wednesday, goalkeeper Trap said, “We want to finish our good starting position with success.
European Cup mood at the interface between Asia and Europe. Already once, 15 years ago, Eintracht was able to compete in Fenerbahçe. It was a big game in which Frankfurt took a 2-0 lead for a long time. But as the Turks retaliated twice, the miracle of Katiko did not work. Then the European Cup campaign, directed by coach Friedhelm Fungal, came to an abrupt end in the Asian district of Istanbul.
Such an incident will not happen in December 2021. Thanks to a 2-1 win at Olympiacos on the fourth day of Group Four five weeks ago, Eintracht has already secured a ticket to the knockout stage. The only question is whether he should go on the dive through the sixteenth final or go straight to the last 16 teams round. One draw is enough.
Unlike Trap, Glasner has already arrived at Fenerbahce Stadium. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Several indications, for example, of the Turks’ weak performance around former German national player Mesut Ozil speak against it. After all: Frankfurt fans are not allowed on the site in Kadiköy by UEFA. Glasner and Trop apologize for this, but can not change it. Anyway: with his former club RB Salzburg, Glasner was once in a qualifying match for the Champions League at the ükrü Saracoğlu Stadium; Linz once again with ASK.
His comments have been strengthened ever since: “There are hot fans out there.” Goalkeeper Trap even asked his former teammate Russ. “Marco told me about the incredible situation,” the Indracht goalkeeper said respectfully. “They are rabid fans. But we have already played in front of a big crowd at Olympiacos.
In order to narrow the circle of the technically inclined attacking player, Glasner simply calmed down the question of whether zil could be covered. “I do not care.” His plan: “We must close the rooms collectively.” Do better than what appeared a few days ago at TSG Hoffenheim 3-2 in Cincinnati. Also, they were given satisfaction because the team did not manage that afternoon to solve defensive tasks.
As usual, Glasner was not allowed to see himself in terms of staff before the final team game. Only one thing is certain: there will be a change in at least one condition. The Indract coach confirmed that Jasper Lindstrom, who left for Phosphorus on Wednesday, was not part of the tour company.
Dane complained that he had a problem with his thigh. Its failure does not have to be weak, because as in previous weeks, Glasner has a wide range of options. One might think of the short-term work of the long-injured Christopher Lens. Tasks of 15 to 20 minutes – these are the periods that Glasner wants to give to his captain in the future so that Sebastian Rod can carefully return.
The final team game at Fenerbahçe comes with all the anticipation that comes with it: as goalkeeper Trap warned, Eintracht’s entourage did not want to “become excited”. “We still have a tight program” at the end of the year. Still have to play exactly four games. After a tour of the Turks, Bayer Leverkusen will show himself at the Bundesliga main business at the Frankfurt Stadium on Sunday.
The following two encounters against Mönchengladbach and home Rhein-Main rivals Mainz complete the first round point game plan. “I see us on the right track,” Glasner said, adding that he believes his team has taken a 1-1 draw against Fenerbahce. “We’ve improved in all areas, and we want to tease the players more now.” Kadikoil Character Test begins.
