Eintracht coach Dino Toppmöller announced a “fight mode” before the game. His team implemented this at the beginning of the game: Farès Chaïbi scored in the 3rd minute to make it 1-0, Saša Kalajdžić was able to extend this lead shortly afterwards (10th). With a clear lead behind them, Frankfurt initially controlled the game and also had the better chances.

As the game progressed, the Hessians’ dominance diminished: Mathias Rasmussen scored for the hosts for the first time in the 31st minute. The Bundesliga club then had increasing problems on defense. In the 68th minute, Gustaf Nilsson finally scored the equalizer to make the final score 2-2.

After the game, it was very annoying not to be able to travel back to Frankfurt in a better position, said Eintracht captain Sebastian Rode on RTL+. “It’s just as annoying how we played in the second half.” Rode said self-critically that he and his teammates had to keep calm and counter it better. Looking ahead to the second leg, he announced: “At home we will give it our all and win the game.”
