“That’s really a huge relief,” said coach Oliver Glasner in the rtl discussion. “It was an incredible game in an incredible mood. With a bitter final minute, residue, extension. You need the necessary luck, where we could already take the lead before. That’s a great success for us.”
Glasner continues: “How Martin (Hinteregger; Note d. Red.) Then in the free kick pure in the free kick – that has excellent us today. In the end, it has noticed that the forces have a bit eased. The boys have something like that deserves. I think that was the third goal in the last second in the Europa League. “
For Keeper Kevin Trapp, the game was “definitely among the top 5, as far as the emotions are concerned. Unbelievable that you get the goal in the last minute and must be in the extension, but with the last action heads us in the quarterfinals Can not exceed emotions. “

The Frankfurters had hoped for a full stadium but did not receive any exemption of the authorities. And so “only” 25,000 fans saw a short scan of both teams, marriage Ansgar Knauff (14th) with a slatted goal finished the restraint of harmony. This was followed by an unplaced degree from Djibril Sow (19th).

The Hessen controlled the events as in the first leg victory that could have been quite higher. In their efforts, however, the SGE remained in the Betis defense with the ex-Dortmund Marc Bartra hanging. The Andalusians, trained by the experienced Manuel Pellegrini, rarely caused a danger counter.
But the harmony came as changed from the cabin. At once, the hitherto stable defensive, offensive, woke up almost nothing more – and the spreadsheet of the Spanish league increased the pressure. Only after a good hour Frankfurt freed something again.
It still remained exciting. A free kick by Filip Kostic (64.) sailed past all past the post, on the opposite side Kevin Trapp against Juanmi (65th). In the final phase, the Hessen gave even more pressure and had to worry about the progress: scorers Iglesias met the crossbar (109.) in the extension.
