“You will not be hara-kiri”
There is already a preconceived notion of first class on August 10th in the Supercup. Then the opponent in Helsinki is either Liverpool or Real Madrid. Despite all the growth opportunities, the club wants to stay true to itself. “We are not going shopping now because we have qualified for the Champions League once,” said Eintracht president Peter Fischer. “There will be no Keri hot in this club.”

The Austria international was able to celebrate at the awards ceremony, as was Stefan Ilsanker, who had two short group stage matches in the fall. In the spring he is no longer there, his contract expires.
Last year’s failure caused victory
Eintracht is unbeaten in all 13 matches in the European League. Glasner saw one of the reasons for his success in qualifying for the Champions League last year. “Do you know where the reason for today’s title lies? Last year he failed to qualify.

According to the report, he is supposed to be transferred to Frankfurt on Thursday for an operation. Because of the accident, Frankfurt supporters completely stopped supporting their team.
Rangers left the field undefeated. After Joe Aribo’s lead, the Scots briefly looked like winners, but winning the 1972 Cup Winners’ Cup would not have been followed by another title. “It’s never good to lose. It hurts everyone,” said coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
He hurt Rangers when Trapp thwarted Ryan Kent’s big chance. “He did everything he could. It was a fantastic rescue,” Van Bronckhorst said. As Scotland’s runners-up, Rangers now have to go through the qualifying factories for the Champions League.
