Eintracht completed their mandatory task confidently and are back in the top 16 for the first time since 2016, when they were still 1. FFC Frankfurt. The club thus secured an entry fee of 400,000 euros. “We are extremely happy with the squad with which we will play three competitions until at least January. The journey should continue,” confirmed Arnautis. This Friday there will be a draw to see who Eintracht will face in the group games (from November 14th/15th).

There was also enthusiasm among the players around triple goalscorer Barbara Dunst. "To be in the group stage is just crazy, we worked so hard for it. I'm happy for the whole team," said Dunst.
