Eintracht Frankfurt won in the Europa League against Standard Liège. After the 2: 1 (1: 0), the Eintracht may despite the opening defeat in the group stage against Arsenal again justified hopes to make the second round.
It was Gonçalo Paciência in the Frankfurt storm on his own, because with Bas Dost and André Silva two injured injured. The absence of the top scorer took the Frankfurt center-back as an opportunity to score goals themselves. David Abraham scored the lead (28th minute), his defensive colleague Martin Hinteregger the final score (73rd). Amallah scored for Liege (82 ').
Especially at standards, the Frankfurt center-back were dangerous. First Abraham put the ball after a free kick by Daichi Kamada at the second post in the gate (28). Previously, all defenders of Liège had passed the ball. For the next big chance of their team, the Frankfurt fans had to wait until shortly after the halftime. A cross from the left took Paciência by sight and brought the ball out of the net. Liège's Vanja Milinkovic-Savic steered the shot over the bar (49.).
Liège seldom came to graduation. And if it did, the determination in graduation was missing. After a cross from the right side striker Duje Cop struck alone before goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow on the ball (65). On the other hand, Frankfurt's center-back showed again how to do it. Once again Kamada was the starting point, this time bringing a corner from the right side into the middle. There headed Hinteregger for preliminary decision (73.). Amallah succeeded only the connection for Liege (82).
Frankfurt are still second in the table with six points, three points ahead of Liège. And three points behind Arsenal.
