65th minute

: Double change at SGE.

Hugo Ekitike and junior Dina Ebimbe come for Buta and Mario Götze.

Amoura is not attacked by Tuta and plays a great pass to Puertas, who gives Trapp no ​​chance with a low shot – 0:1

46th minute:

The second round continues.

Half time

: Then it's break in the Waldstadion.

Both teams struggled on offense and there were hardly any great chances to score, apart from Chaibi's free kick shortly before the half-time whistle.

A very tough game so far.

The SGE has to step up its game here.

Eintracht: Chaibi with a strong free kick

45th minute

: Free kick from a very dangerous situation for Eintracht.

Chaibi tries it directly from 22 meters and forces Moris to do a brilliant deed.

That was by far the best chance of the first half.

39th minute

: Both teams simply can't get through and keep losing the ball, especially in the final third.

A typical 0-0 so far.

35th minute

: Next corner for the SGE.

30th minute

24th minute

: Marmoush asserts himself brilliantly in the penalty area, but the angle then becomes too acute.

The striker at least gets a corner, but it doesn't yield anything.

20th minute:

Buta is shown a yellow card after a foul.

The full-back was under strain and would be missing in the first leg of the round of 16 if Eintracht progressed.

20th minute

Both teams are looking for a way forward, but so far they are stuck in the opposing defense.

A cross turns into a shot on goal and just misses Trapp's goal.

11th minute

: The guests don't hide and play boldly forward in the initial phase.

However, they have not yet been able to create any great chances to score.

8th minute

: Marmoush falls in a duel in the penalty area after a pass from Nkounkou, but that's far too little for a penalty.

The referee lets the game continue.

5th minute

: Chaibi finds Knauff, but the cross is a tad too high for the double goalscorer from the Freiburg game.

3rd minute:

First dangerous free kick for the guests after a foul by Nkounkou.

But Rasmussen's flank sails past friend and foe into the goal.

1st minute.

First report

: Frankfurt – Eintracht Frankfurt wants to reach the round of 16 of the Conference League.

After the 2-2 draw in the first leg, a win in the second leg in front of a home crowd is needed to achieve the goal.

The Belgians already showed a week ago that it will not be an easy undertaking for the SGE, who have to throw everything into the balance to eliminate Union Saint-Gilloise.

“We need maximum focus and maximum discipline, it's a knockout game.

Every small mistake is punished, we have to be awake from the first minute.

We want to use the home advantage for ourselves and, with our fans behind us, as the twelfth man, show the opponent right from the start that it will be very difficult to take anything away here.

We definitely want to advance to the next round,” said head coach Dino Toppmöller at the press conference.

“They have good processes offensively and defensively.

They will have watched the first leg and adjusted certain things in nuances – just like us,” continued the head coach, who has great respect for the opponent from Belgium.

Captain Sebastian Rode demands full focus on the game in the Waldstadion: “I was disappointed that we lost a better starting position in the first leg.

Despite everything, there is something good about it: We are all fully sharp, fully focused, we can't afford anything and we have to go all out to win.”

Against Saint-Gilloise, Toppmöller can once again rely on defense chief Robin Koch, who was missing from the Bundesliga game against SC Freiburg due to a yellow card suspension.

However, the Hessians will have to do without striker Sasa Kaljdzic, who tore a cruciate ligament in his right knee in the same game.

Defense chief returns to Eintracht's starting eleven

“We are happy that Robin Koch is back on board and know that he will give us good stability.

I personally congratulated Makoto Hasebe on his 300th game for Eintracht.

He gave us good security against Freiburg, as well as good stability with the ball. I don't see his performance as critically as he saw himself - but that also speaks for his character," the head coach praised the Japanese, who represented Koch had.

The anticipation for another exhilarating European Cup night is huge, including for Rode: “I've already been able to play a few knockout games here in the stadium, the atmosphere will be fantastic.

I'm looking forward to it, we'll play a great game on the field.

I'm ready and definitely want to help on the pitch.

Everything else is decided by the trainer, we are in close consultation.” (
