Eintracht Frankfurt – West Ham United: The analysis
Compared to the first leg, Glasner exchanged twice: the Lindström, which was recovered in time, replaced the injured Haug, Ndicka slipped in for Tour. But after four minutes, Frankfurt’s plans had discarded themselves because Martin Hinteregger was unhappily injured by the thigh after a sprint duel. After minutes of treatment, the Austrian tried to continue, but had to leave the place a little later.
However, this did not change the game system of Eintracht. The SGE acted in the usual 3-4-3, while the guests from London kept up with a 4-2-3-1. Despite the deficit from the first leg, West Ham left the ball to the hosts. Apart from the loud setting, it remained calm in the early minutes before Cresswell saw the red card after an emergency brake against Haug.
Shortly thereafter, Frankfurt converted his outnumbered in countable: Borre met Knauff after an exemplary cross from Knauff with the first dangerous conclusion of the game to the lead. The hammers switched to a 4-4-1 before the goal, but were still noticeably unsettled. Despite a few promising attacks, Eintracht missed the second goal before the break. Ndicka even prevented the more than undeserved balance with a rescue act on the line (44.).
Even after the change of sides, Eintracht was the game -determining team. Kostic made steam on the left, but its sharp crossings were lacking in precision. There was no good chances in the second half, which was shaped by little highlights, the well -placed defensive also suffocated in the germ.
Network reactions: “Stormsturm because Leipzig has left?”

The star of the game: Evan Ndicka (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Had no direct opponent and was able to concentrate on the structure. But when it came to the duel, there was no way. Very important in the 44th minute when he clarified on the line after a corner. A strong performance.
The flop of the game: Aaron Cresswell (West Ham United)
Provided his team with the early dismissal. The game tipped over with the red card, West Ham hardly got anything. Without his intervention, Hauge would have had the huge chance to take the lead, but it was by no means worth it with a view to the minutes to be played.
