Eintracht Frankfurt: Oliver Glasner is happy with the Europa League victory

NSThere are limits to a soccer coach during a match. It’s his training zone lines. He is only allowed to stay within this, even if some see the limitation as more of a recommendation. Oliver Glasner of Eintracht Frankfurt was no longer in his area in the 68th minute of his team’s Europa League match at Olympiacos. Once again, his country ruined a promising situation with a sloppy play. The ball, which flew, went towards the coach who shot it away with a shot. Glasner ran out of his training area in an untamed roar.

The Austrian was a professional player in his home country and played more than 500 matches. So he knows how to handle the bullet. He knows the consequences of crossing these borders. He accepted the referee’s yellow card. Instead, it was apparently about the effect of his explosion, which, in addition to a warning, also led to boos and whistles from Greek fans. But his players also seemed to admire their coach’s wrath. Because Glasner is usually a quiet actor. But he simply could not please the performance of his players.

Indeed, the slip did not fail to have its effect. Eintracht pulled a bit and came in stoppage time for a successful attack on the side through which he was passing a crucial bad pass twenty minutes ago. Substitute Jesper Lindstrom unleashed the ball after winning the ball from Ivan Ndica and finding Jens Peter Hugh, who also played with a cross pass, graced the ball past the goalkeeper to score the 2-1 winner. Previously, Youssef Elaraby had put Piraeus ahead (12), Daichi Kamada equalized immediately (17).

“it’s a wonderful feeling”

With their third win in their fourth game of the Europa League season, the Frankfurt side qualified ahead of schedule for the knockout stage next year. With another win, about three weeks from now against Royal Antwerp or on December 9 in Istanbul Fenerbahce, they could secure the top spot and move straight to the Round of 16. The situation has been modified before this season. The second in the group must survive a home and away duel. On the spring calendar, which is already dense, skipping a lap would be a welcome relief.
