"Aberdeen have two good strikers and Clarkson is a confident midfielder. They go for second balls, but they are not a typical Scottish team. When you let them play, their quality comes into play. The defence is tackling and rustic," said SGE head coach Dino Toppmöller before the game against the Scots.
"We are aware of the importance of the first group game. We want to continue our decent start to the season with a home win. We know how difficult the task is, but we are also aware of our role as favourites. We want to live up to this," continued the coach, who can rely on almost his entire squad: "Except for Jakic, who still has knee problems, everyone is on board. Sebastian Rode has recovered from his illness. He took part in parts of the team training yesterday and completed it today. If everything is okay tomorrow, he'll be in the starting line-up." Toppmöller can therefore draw on the full range of starting eleven and certainly surprise.

Tomorrow I'll be rewarded." However, he warns against taking the opponent lightly: "We shouldn't be blinded by Aberdeen FC's start to the league. We have a good job ahead of us."

Eintracht Frankfurt with respect for the underdog from Scotland
The goalkeeper is holding back with one objective, he wants to master the preliminary round with his team first: "We have the ambition to be as successful as possible. It's a new competition that we take as seriously as possible. First, however, it is important to survive the group stage. That's what we want to start with tomorrow."
Trapp is not worried about the many departures of top performers. "The circumstances surrounding success are the departures of top performers. That's part of football. This summer there were a few more. We have come a long way to achieve this. The team has potential. The three-day rhythm can help us get used to it more quickly," said the 32-year-old ahead of the Aberdeen game. (smr)
