That’s going to be very tight. Jesper Lindstrøm (22) has six days left until the Euro final against Glasgow Rangers (May 18 in Seville).
Will he fit in time? Eintracht’s dribbler has been out since being substituted in the semi-final first leg in London against West Ham (2-1) with a thigh injury.
Coach Oliver Glasner (47): “It will be a photo finish. The medical department is working at full speed. I don’t want to make a prediction just yet. A mission will be decided in the last one or two days.” Recently it sounded even more optimistic when it was said that the Dane was free of pain…
In the last few days, Lindstrøm has been working individually and will train with the team again on Sunday. The league game in Mainz (Sat., 3.30 p.m.) is still too early.
Experts and fans recently voted the Dane Rookie of the Year in the Bundesliga. Glasner: “Congratulations to Jesper, of course he deserves it.”
There are no concerns for goalkeeper Kevin Trapp (31), who had to be treated against Gladbach (1: 1) on the hand that was already injured. Trapp calms: “It’s something that has accompanied me since the Barcelona game. But it doesn’t bother me. Nothing is in danger.”
