Eintracht Frankfurt draws against Tottenham Hotspur

Ka goals, but a lot of fight, heart and passion. After the 0:3 at the start of the Champions League campaign against Sporting Lisbon and the 1:0 at Olympique Marseille, Eintracht kept all options open with the 0:0 against the third opponent Tottenham Hotspur, in the exciting group D the dream goal to reach the round of 16.

Coach Oliver Glasner’s team put on a strong performance on Tuesday evening in the sold-out arena with 50,500 spectators against the supposed top favourites, with whom the Frankfurt team will have to deal a second time next week in the second leg in London.

“Of course we would have liked to win, but we’ll take a 0-0 win with us,” said national goalkeeper Kevin Trapp after the game on Amazon Prime: “We did it very concentrated and also had our situations forward. If we made better use of the chances to score, we could have done better.”

Antonio Conte, the English team’s Italian coach, somehow sensed it. “It’s going to be a tough game,” he said to set the mood. “Eintracht won the Europa League and is one of the best teams in Germany. The group is very balanced.”
