Eintracht Frankfurt is coming out of a bad week. He suffered two setbacks at home without scoring a goal (0-3 Wednesday against Sporting in C1, then 0-1 Saturday against VfL Wolfsburg in the Championship). Two meetings during which the German club showed particular signs of feverishness on the defensive level.
“At the offensive level, we were useless, summarized Oliver Glasner, his coach, this weekend. We have never been able to find the depth and, in the duels, we have not been able to impose ourselves. As for our set pieces, they were disastrous. I have to shake up my players, otherwise we will experience further disappointment in Marseille. »
To avoid falling into crisis and find the way to victory, the Austrian technician should modify his system of play and go back to three behind, a choice dictated by the absences of his two professional left backs (Luca Pellegrini and Christopher Lenz, who suffer from muscular problems) with the return as holder of the Japanese Makoto Hasebe (38 years old). Suffering from muscle problems for ten days, captain Sebastian Rode returned to training yesterday. He will return to the group but will be too fair to be aligned at kick-off.
