FC Salzburg in round of 32 - “A great draw”
Eintracht Frankfurt will take on Adi Hütter’s former club in the UEFA Europa League round of 32.
The draw was made at UEFA headquarters in Nyon by former Germany women’s international Josephine Henning and Frédéric Kanouté, two-time UEFA Cup winner with FC Sevilla. The first leg will take place in Frankfurt on Thursday 20 February 2020, with the return leg a week later in Salzburg on 27 February.
Reaction to the draw
Sporting director Bruno Hübner: “It’s a great draw against Salzburg. They’ve got a top team and were only narrowly eliminated from a very difficult Champions League group. They held their own against the best teams, be it Liverpool or Napoli. I’m really looking forward to it. It’ll obviously be a special occasion for our coach. I think it’ll be helpful for us that Adi Hütter and Martin Hinteregger know all about Salzburg from their time there. Their style of play will be a big challenge for us, but that’s what we want to measure ourselves against and it is precisely from challenges like this that you can grow.”
