Football on free TV today: Europa League final – Frankfurt versus Glasgow

The white wall in Barcelona, ​​the strike against West Ham United and the last-minute goal against Betis Sevilla. A few moments have already stuck with Eintracht Frankfurt’s wild European Cup season. Now the Europa League final against Glasgow Rangers in Seville is waiting on Wednesday. A look back at the people who have particularly shaped the course of the Hessians up to that point.

Kevin Trapp: Had a mixed start in the Bundesliga before experiencing a spark in the 2-1 win at Bayern Munich in the fall. The 31-year-old played outstandingly this spring and played a major role in Eintracht’s surprising entry into the final. Former keeper Uli Stein even sees Trapp ahead of national team captain Manuel Neuer. “Kevin is the best in the Bundesliga at the moment!” Stein told the “Bild-Zeitung”.

Peter Fischer: Nobody lives the emotions of the club as much as the club president. Fischer is always with Eintracht, not just with the footballers. The pictures were significant when the 66-year-old drank canned beer in Plaça de Catalunya with fans dressed all in white. In the evening, his club won 3-2 at FC Barcelona and threw the world club out of the competition. Fischer had previously described the games as “games of the century”.

Filip Kostic: The Serb wanted to leave Hessen in August. His goal was Lazio Rome, Kostic once even went on strike during training. But Eintracht didn’t let their winger go and – in retrospect – made the right decision. Kostic scores goals and submits hits, with his speed and technique he is the motor on the left. After the win at Camp Nou, he proudly hoisted the shirt in front of the fans as if nothing had happened last summer.

Oliver Glasner: Before the season, the Austrian was misunderstood because he was leaving a Champions League club (Wolfsburg) and moving to a Europa League club (Frankfurt). Almost a year later he is in a European Cup final, while the Lower Saxony have already parted ways with Glasner’s successor Mark van Bommel and his successor Florian Kohfeldt.

The twelfth man: Is often invoked by many clubs, but is hardly as present and important in any club as in Eintracht Frankfurt. “The whole of Germany is keeping their fingers crossed on Wednesday that they will win the cup after the fantastic performance,” said ex-coach Friedhelm Funkel of the dpa. Over 30,000 fans attended Barcelona and almost all made it into the stadium. This time there should be even more – only with access to the stadium, which only has a little over 40,000 seats, it should be more difficult this time.
