Dear Eagles around the globe,two months have passed since we sent you the last edition of our little newsletter – time for us to inform you about what has been going on in and around Frankfurt.
On matchday 5, the Eagles claimed one point after a goalless draw against Bundesliga “dinosaurs” Hamburger SV. Then, Eintracht went down to Schalke 04 (0-2), followed by a draw against Hertha BSC.
On matchday 8, SGE suffered a tough setback when they were defeated by Bundesliga newcomers FC Ingolstadt (0-2), only to be crushed by Borussia Mönchengladbach at home on the following matchday (1-5).
At least, the Eagles recovered by collecting three points in Hanover (2-1). However, they immediately suffered another setback when they lost to third division club Erzgebirge Aue in the second round of the German Cup competition (DFB Pokal). The good news is that Eintracht once again were able to boost their performance. Only few days after their Cup defeat, they managed to be the first team in the current Bundesliga campaign who did not go down to Bayern München.
On matchday 12, the Eagles tied with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the club of former Eintracht skipper Pirmin Schwegler.
Speaking of former Eagles, Vaclav Kadlec and Eintracht have agreed to part ways after the first half of the season. Kadlec, a Czech international, will join FC Midtjylland, a club of the Danish Superliga. Take care, Vaclav!
Tomorrow, on Saturday, 21 November 2015, SGE, who are currently ranked 12th in the table, will battle it out with Bayer 04 Leverkusen. The kick-off will take place in Frankfurt’s home stadium at 15.30 CET. Our newsletter contains information regarding the upcoming match. Additionally, we take a look back at how our internationals performed during the international caps break. Finally, we have included another Social Media Review for you.
As always, keep on following Frankfurt – over land and sea!
