Martin Hinteregger has gave Eintracht Frankfurt with a hit in the last second the desired continuation of the Europe journey.
With his headball goal in the reintegration of renewal, the defender secured the football-Bundesliga a hard-fought 1: 1 (0: 1, 0: 0) in the eighth-final return match of the Europa League against Real Betis Seville and as in 2019 the collection rejuvenated by 25,000 spectators In the quarterfinals. Borja Iglesias (90th) had shot the Spaniards in the lead and thus the 2-1 of the Frankfurter from the first game in the previous week. The draw of the quarter-finals, in which a further German team is represented with RB Leipzig, is rising on Friday afternoon in Nyon.
“An incredible game”
“The last minute entrance was back today,” said Frankfurt’s coach Oliver Glasner at RTL. “It was an incredible game. Great success,” the Austrian, who praised his compatriot and headball scorers Hinteregger as well as flank Filip Kostic, praised: “How filip the ball brings how Martin dawn there – that has excellent us today.”
Eintracht-Trainer Glasner trusted for the fourth time sequentially the same starting eleven and thus the eleven players, which also started the 2-1 win in the first leg. In contrast, guest coach Manuel Pellegrini sent equal four new players on the lawn, including the 40-year old Oldie Joaquin and in the goal Rui Silva instead of Claudio Bravo.
The changes first showed effect, because the guests determined the initial phase and put Frankfurt powerfully under pressure. The home owners needed a scarce quarter of an hour to the first chance – but they had it right in themselves. The Ansgar Knauf, which was set by Djibril such as shiny in scene, appeared freely in front of the gate, did only hit the latte.
Suddenly the Eintracht was in the game and shifted the happening increasingly in the opposing half. But before the Andalusian’s housing, the Hesse lacked precision. Again and again the last pass failed, so that further occasions left. After all, the hosts also did not allow the spreadsheet of the Spanish La Leaga to go to goal-threatening actions. Consequently, it went to the break.
Seville meets after the regular season
As in the first half, Seville started swinging after the change, but initially a clear chance of being able to develop. Only at a long-distance shot of France’s World Champion Nabil Fekir had to pack Eintracht Goalwart Kevin Trapp.
But Frankfurt was also extremely difficult in the offensive. Unlike in the first leg, the Betis defense was hardly embarrassed. Even with standard situations, the Glasner team did not develop a danger – until the age of 63, when a free kick of Filip Kostic landed on the latte. Almost in turn, Trapp preserved the entrance with a header of Juanmi with a gloss parade in front of a backlog.
In the final phase, the entrance made a moment of negligence, which used the substituted striker Iglesias shortly before the expiration of the regular season to 1: 0 for Seville. In the extension, initially Iglesias met again the latte, before then Hinteregger Frankfurt secured the progress.
