Eintracht Frankfurt can again count on striker Andre Silva and full-back Erik Durm in the away game at Werder Bremen. “It is good news that both are back in training,” said coach Adi Hütter at the virtual press conference.
“They are both more than just alternatives. Nothing stands in the way of a game on Friday,” continued Hütter. “In the surprising 2-1 win against Bayern Munich, the two regular players were slightly damaged.
Despite the success against the table leaders and a total of nine wins from the last ten league games, Hütter urges humility in the Champions League race. “You have to be calm and patient,” said the 51-year-old: “If it were to be like that, it would be absolutely amazing. We see the opportunity and the possibility, but then we have to continue as we have done so far . “
On Friday in Bremen, Hütter will have to do without the yellow-banned Evan Ndicka, but veteran Makoto Hasebe will probably move into the three-man defense chain.
The Austrian expects a reaction from Werder after the 4-0 defeat in Hoffenheim. “We have been warned about this,” he said: “We are not given anything from Bremen either. We have to go to our limits there too.”
