Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League: Glasner under pressure

NSGlasner’s liver will have to reorient itself. In fact, as the Eintracht coach planned, he wanted to use the autumn weeks to give his team, which had slowly crystallized over the summer, a face and deepen operations that only succeeded after the start of the season. In both defense and attack. His motto was “We’re talking about automatism, so we have to play with the same formation from time to time.”

But in the match against 1. FC Köln, not only was the eagerly awaited first victory under Glasner lost again, but the team hospital also got a new addition: Eric Dorm (concussion) and Ivan Ndica (a strain in the knee ligaments) are even missing. Also note two pros who have recently been a part of the Defense Series trunk. So the coach has no choice but to formulate a new plan for the away match on Thursday at FC Antwerp Royal (6.45pm on FAZ Europa League live tape as well as on TVNOW).

Success is imperative

Mastering the task by far will not be as easy as those in charge of the Hessians who were initially extrapolated behind closed doors when the groups in the Europa League were recently drawn out. The Belgians, Glasner got this photo in the meantime from the scouts of Eintracht, a competitor not to be taken lightly.

“Royal Antwerp is not supposed to be an easy opponent. Belgian clubs are doing well in Europe. Brugge showed it in Leipzig in the Champions League, and I also tried it with Wolfsburg at that time with only one point out of two games against Gent,” Glasner said. In order not to lose more ground in Group D after the 1-1 draw against Fenerbahce Istanbul, a (partial) success is almost essential for Frankfurt.
