In the midst of the Frankfurt Freudenaumel himself, the otherwise pronecary Oliver Glasner found hardly any more words. “I’m still totally flashed by the emotions. The game offered everything for what the Euro Eintracht says,” said the coach of Eintracht Frankfurt after the dramatic entry into the quarterfinals of the Europa League by a last minute hit in the extension.
The jubilee knew no boundaries after 1: 1 in the second round match against Betis Seville. “Something you only experience in football,” Glasner said, “In the 90th minute, the football world breaks up briefly. And in the 120 minutes, she is Rosarot again.”
After 2: 1 in the first leg in Seville, the Frankfurters offered a rousing football evening in their favorite competition.
At first Borja Iglesias (90.) rescued the Andalusians in the extension, but then the ball flew after a free-kick by Filip Kostic about Martin Hinteregger and Betis-Profi Guido Rodriguez (120th + 1).
“Martin has enforced it with everything he had. He has even risked an injury. I am glad for him, as he had a few more difficult months,” said Glasner.
“It’s just a horny feeling”
What followed was unlimited jubilation and anticipation of other magical nights in Europe. “You can not surpass that at emotions and everything that is there,” Kevin Trapp said at RTL.
Ansgar Knauf swarmed: “It’s just a horny feeling that are the days, the games, the nights for which you play football.”
On Friday (13.30 clock) the quarterfinals is already drawn – a desired opponent does not have. “But I would prefer not to get Leipzig,” said the Eintracht-Coach with a view of a possible German duel.
