The Eagles started the new week with an intense training session and video analysis of the weekend’s match.

The Eintracht players were back to work on Tuesday, beginning with a comprehensive video analysis of the defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday. “We talked in detail about the things that didn’t work well, but also about the things that did,” said Kevin Trapp.

“We didn’t defend well in the opening period and were lacking aggression and liveliness. But the main thing was that we didn’t put the opposition under pressure together. After the 20-minute mark you could see what’s possible when we play with courage. We’ve got the quality to do so.”

That much was clearly evident at midday on Tuesday when 20 outfield players and three goalkeepers took to the training pitches surrounding the Commerzbank-Arena. After intense conditioning drills, work with the ball was the focus of 70-minute session. Runs behind the defence, aggression in tackles, correct tactical movements, counter-pressing and shooting rounded off a tough day’s work for Adi Hütter’s charges.

The Eagles have two training sessions scheduled for Wednesday, followed by one on Thursday and another on Friday, before they head to Munich for Saturday’s fixture away to Bayern.
