Approaches meet for Union

According to the association, Rodrigo Zalazar was absent because he was "in talks with another association". Timothee Kolodziejczak (74th) scored the connecting goal for the guests.

In the week before the game, there had been controversial discussions about how many fans Eintracht should allow.
