Eintracht Frankfurt back in the mix with 2-1 win over Olympique Marseille

Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt has averted the premature end in the Champions League and can even dream of winning the group after a strong comeback game. The Frankfurters defeated the French football club Olympique Marseille 2-1 (2-1) on Wednesday evening and have progress in the group finals next week in their own hands. 

Daichi Kamada (3rd minute) and striker Randal Kolo Muani (27th) scored in front of 48,700 spectators – including national coach Hansi Flick.

The win lifted the Europa League winners to seven points, one ahead of Marseille and level with second-placed Sporting. Tottenham are top on eight after drawing 1-1 against the Portuguese side. 

Frankfurt travel to Sporting on Tuesday when Marseille host Tottenham. The top two teams qualify for the last 16. 

“Now we have a final in Lisbon. If we present ourselves like we did today and stand together then everything is still possible for us,” said Randal Kolo Muani, who scored Frankfurt’s winner.
