Dear Eagles around the globe,
A few weeks have passed since we sent you the last edition of our little newsletter – time for us to inform you about the latest developments regarding the Eagles.
Meanwhile, the 2015/16 campaign has come to an end. The good news is that even though things did not look too promising after matchday 30, Eintracht were able to win three matches in a row, making them climb to spot no. 15 in the table.
Unfortunately, the Eagles had to admit defeat against SW Werder Bremen on the final matchday after a late goal by Djilobodji (88’), resulting in Bremen moving past Eintracht. In conclusion, Eintracht have finished in 16th position, which means that they have to play two relegation play-off matches against the third-ranked team of the second division, 1. FC Nürnberg. Only if Eintracht succeed on the aggregate score in these matches, they will stay in the 1. Bundesliga.
Let us keep our fingers crossed that this will happen.
Unfortunately, we have to inform you that just yesterday, Marco Russ has been diagnosed with a tumour disease. Marco, being the strong fighter that he is, nevertheless wants to play in the relegation play-offs. The doctors have allowed Marco to do so. Get well soon, mate! We need you. Our thoughts are with you and your familiy.
Our newsletter contains information regarding the upcoming relegation play-offs.
As always, keep on following Frankfurt – over land and sea!
