UEFA Europa League play-off, second leg
Eintracht Frankfurt 3 - 0 RC Strasbourg Alsace (Frankfurt qualify 3-1 on aggregate)
Adi Hütter (Eintracht Frankfurt coach): "I am still blown away by this amazing evening of football. It wasn't an easy game and there was a lot of emotion on and off the pitch."
Thierry Laurey (RC Strasbourg Alsace coach): "It's a disappointment, but then you have to be lucid and admit that over both matches, despite the efforts of the boys, our opponents deserved their win. Frankfurt are a great team that has found a way to raise its level. We would have liked to qualify, that's obvious. It's always a shame to miss out at the last step. It is something that will make us grow and I hope we will learn a lesson from this."
