Go on, but the group win is shaky!
Frankfurt scores a last-minute point against Antwerp in the Europa League – 2-2. Because Piraeus wins against Fenerbahce at the same time (1-0), the Hessians’ lead over the Greeks shrinks to two points before the group final in Istanbul (December 9th).
Trainer Oliver Glasner (47) at RTL: “We were countered that we came back, shows morality. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for the early round of 16, at least a draw in the last game would be enough for us. But we’re going to Istanbul to win. “
What a roller coaster game!
Frankfurt starts with the winning team from Freiburg (2-0), takes the lead thanks to Euro King Kamada: The Japanese makes his third goal of the season in the Europa League (13th) after Chandler’s cross and is thus Eintracht’s best Euro clippers . 30,000 fans celebrate in the stadium.
But then Antwerp strikes after a questionable corner: A Nainggolan volley is unfortunately deflected by Ndicka, no chance for keeper Trapp – 1: 1 (33rd).
Later there is a bang next to and on the square: A pyro fireworks display burns down in the block of around 1000 Belgian fans (60th). Seven minutes later, Eintracht fans throw a firecracker behind the goal of Antwerp keeper Butez. Probably the revenge for the pyro attack on Trapp in the first leg.
After a standard, Joker Lammers cannot prevail in the duel with de Laet, who pokes the ball past Trapp into the goal (71.). The hit does not count after video check due to offside. In the 88th minute, Frankfurt is countered, Samatta makes it 2-1 for the Belgians.
But unity does not give up: As in the first leg (1-0), Frankfurt strikes in stoppage time. As in Belgium, Paciencia scores – 2-2 (90th + 4).
