Frankfurt vs WEST HAM: Hinteregger injured early
In the second leg, Frankfurt did not give up their strong start and benefited from Aron Creswell’s early dismissal by West Ham (19th). Also Guest coach David Moyes sent out after the break (77th).
The Eagles were shocked during their first phase in their home stadium. After only seven minutes, defender Martin Hinteregger had to be replaced.
After a three-minute running duel with Michail Antonio, the Austrian went down and injured his back right thigh. Almamy Touré entered the room.
After the central defender removed, coach Oliver Glasner reconfigured the back three. Tuta moved from the right to the center, while Touré shifted to the right.
Glasner has already made two alterations to his starting lineup after the 2-1 victory over West Ham. Jens Petter Hauge replaced Jesper Lindström, who injured in the thigh.
Furthermore, Evan Ndicka returned after serving his suspension and chose over Touré.
Above all, Hauge’s inclusion paid off. Aaron Creswell wrestled the Frankfurter down as the last man after the Norwegian sent off in the 19th minute. (RESULTS AND SCHEDULE FOR THE EUROPA LEAGUE)
