The situation 

Eintracht continues its set-up in Austrian lands, where it is doing its preseason. And it seems that they are on the right track, since in a friendly match against Torino in Bad Wimsbach they have begun to show the level they can show . Although the result is the least important in this type of clash, the Germans beat Torino 3-1, a team from the Italian Serie A. It is true that it was the first friendly match for the Turin team in this preseason, something that is also noticeable when the physicality of the players is still far from 100%. It was a game in which Oliver Glasner, coach of the Europa League champions, continued to give opportunities to all the players he had at his disposal , something that, on the other hand, is common in the first weeks of preseason. In the first half, the Germans took the lead with a goal from Almamy Touré (the team’s right back) in the 10th minute . There were no more goals in this first half in which players like Hauge participated (the right winger has been Eintracht’s most expensive signing this season . He bought him from Roma for 12 million) or Santos Borré, an old acquaintance of the Spanish fans.

The details

In the second act, Glasner completely changed the team. He brought on higher quality players with the ball at his feet like Gotze (the Germans’ flashiest signing) or Kostic, something that was noticeable on the pitch. Within two minutes of leaving the locker room, Lindstrom (another addition) made it 2-0. The third was from Lucas Alario, a center forward who thus made his debut as a scorer in his new team . Finally, Torino’s goal came in the 83rd minute and was converted by Horváth. In general terms, good feelings for the German team in their first real touchstone of their preseason. It is true that Torino has been training for less time, but an evolution has been seen in the Germans . His next friendly, on the 23rd against Ajax in Amsterdam.
