TSG Hoffenheim didn't have enough to oppose Eintracht Frankfurt either. The Hessians win with the 4:2 home win in the top group of the league. Oliver Glasner pays homage to his team.
Frankfurt was able to win a whopping seven wins from the last eight competitive games. And the one defeat that is included is the questionable 1:2 against BVB.
On Wednesday evening, Eintracht got the said seventh three with a 4-2 home win. TSG Hoffenheim weren't good enough to stop Oliver Glasner's team, which is in great form at the moment. Not only in terms of goals but also in terms of performance it was a deserved win again.
"The players are doing great. That was an outstanding game from us offensively today," said the coach in the highest tones of his players (via Hessenschau). They "scored incredibly nice goals and had a lot of fun playing", he could hardly stop praising.
"And yet," Glasner continued, one had to "remain critical." He was referring to the interim 3:2 in the 47th minute. "So it was an open game, although we were very dominant. And here it's simply a matter of always maintaining this consistency and concentration on the defensive and we clearly still have room for improvement, but of course we're very satisfied," warned the coach at the same time.
"We played a really good attacking game for 90 minutes and created a lot of chances to score. We played an impressive first 30 minutes, but we should have been up a lot more," said a delighted Markus Krösche. In part, "you have to be honest," admitted the sports director, "a little too little" was done.
In the end, however, he also saw a home win that was undoubtedly deserved. "We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we're on the right track," he said. Such a conclusion is easy when you have meanwhile won among the top four in the league. In the last game of the season before the World Cup break, Frankfurt is assuming a place in the Champions League.
Kevin Trapp referred to this run after the game: "We have a really good spirit at the moment. The results also help to be in a good mood. Then a lot of things are easier."
"We always manage to get the things that make us strong onto the pitch every three days," he focused on the positive aspects on the one hand, but at the same time criticized the fact that you always have to concede too many goals . "We have to improve that," said the goalkeeper. Apart from that, the last few weeks have been "really very impressive".
"The victories give you energy and self-confidence and it's easier to act like that. We're in a very good phase at the moment," Djibril Sow drew a similar conclusion. Randal Kolo Muani was also pleased: "We get along really well both on and off the pitch - that's bearing fruit and you can see that. We're happy about the win and the three points. Now it's a matter of sticking with it."
