Tottenham lost the chance to win the first European double after six games in Frankfurt. “Spurs” missed several important chances, but they did not score against the fighting Eintracht, who kept a clean sheet. The final 0-0 in the context of the 3rd matchday, brings the two teams to 4 points and the case-qualification wide open.
Tottenham came in with more energy and could have opened the scoring had Kane not been so careless. In the 12th minute he didn’t have time to place his foot correctly, in the 25th minute he made a bad pass and in the 28th minute he had a shot that didn’t find the target. After half an hour, Eintracht equalized and in the 38th minute they had their own good moment with Rode, who had the first final on target.
Two minutes later, Son had a fine individual effort and shot but the ball went narrowly wide of Trapp’s left post, while in the 43rd minute Perisic had a shot blocked in a great move to open the scoring. The two teams went to the locker room with 0-0, which in no way reflected the image of the match.
At the start of the replay, the Germans threatened with Knauf (50′), who forced Joris into an impressive intervention, however, the continuation belonged to the “Spurs”. Kane (51′) and Son (54′) again failed to find the target, with Antonio Conte sitting on… hot coals, watching his team fail to get the much-coveted goal.
But despite the strong start, the follow-up was not commensurate. After 65′, the tempo dropped and both teams seemed to be comfortable with the draw, then the result of the other game. The last good moment came in the 83rd minute from Sean, who couldn’t beat Trapp. Thus, 0-0 remained until the referee’s final whistle.
The results of the 3rd round:
(13′ Alexis Sanchez, 16′ Harit, 28′ Balerdi, 84′ Embeba – 1′ Trincao)
