The Europe-travel of Concord goes on – at least until this Thursday. Started you little more than a year in the Baltic States, where the hessians were victorious in the first qualifier of 2:1 at FC Flora Tallinn.

He has left the confederates. A, the harmony has for years been the Faithful and the team will head this Thursday as a captain, has a special relationship with the FC Basel: David Abraham.

Just the Portuguese was in splendid condition. Since the re-start of the Bundesliga he has scored in ten Games eight times. Behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski, Silva is the second most successful attacker in this Phase. The Eintracht managed to make the leap in the second round against Basel, it was also Silva's merit. The 2:2 in Salzburg, he managed to score with head and feet, both of Frankfurt's gates.

Also Daichi Kamada has been shown most recently as the aggressive professional. The game strong Japanese heard for months to Hütters first Eleven, feels particularly comfortable, if the sound Cup anthem and he has to prove himself in the Europa League. Six hits of the elegant attacker testify.
