The biggest success since 1980
Eintracht, who surprised 3: 1 in the German cup final Bayern on 3 May last year, achieved the greatest success since 1980 when he won the UEFA Cup. 39 years ago in the final was better than Borussia from Mönchengladbach (2: 3 and 1: 0).

Adi Hütter's favorites are in fourth place in the Bundesliga that leads to the Champions League. In Europe they are the only remaining German club, all of which are eliminated in the eighth finals or already in teamwork.

In the first game, Eintracht was only ten with 20 minutes to go. Evan Obite N & # 39; Dicka & # 39; s defender in the penalty area crushed Gedson Fernandes, who faced goalkeeper Kevin Trapp alone. Joao Felix broke out with a hat trick and Benfica took 4-1. The hit by the Goncalo Paciencie striker in the Luz Stadium last Thursday turned out to be extremely important.

Kostic hit the obvious banished position
48,000 spectators in the Commerzbank Arena created a brilliant atmosphere. Home fans have shown themselves with special choreography. The hosts were a much better rival in the first half and the only goal was scored from a clear forbidden position.

Ante Rebić's Mijata Gačinović places the ball in the back of the penalty area. Filip Kostić was disturbed by a swinging rush and a deflected shot from the suburbs of the day. The court-judge has not raised the flag, and the videoconferencing player in the European League is only in the final. Benfica's Bruno Lage completely lost his temper and Judge Daniele Orsato sent him to the stands.

Eintracht chased a second goal in the second half and made a save after 67 minutes when Rebic reached Sebastian Rode, who beat Odysseas Vlachodimos to the right with a 15 meter mark of 2: 0.

Two goals and two deliveries Pedro
Real spectacle was seen by spectators on Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea was better than Slavia with 4: 3. Londoners also won the first game in Prague with 1: 0.

Pedro had already taken the lead of the Blues in the 5th minute, when goalie Ondrej Kolar was five meters away from Olivier Giroud. Pedra's Eden Hazard came on the left after 10 minutes, but Simona Delija's shot was blocked. After fifteen minutes of play, Chelsea took a 3-0 score after Giroud had bought Pedro from the right. Tomasš Souček left his head in a corner from the corner after 26 minutes, but a minute later he was hit by playful Pedro, who was very confused in Sparte & # 39; s defense.

Shevchik rebuked Chelsea's casual game
In the second half the hosts relaxed too quickly. Petr Ševčik hit left from the left 51 minutes into the game, and four minutes after goalie Kepo made a powerful injection with a right foot. After an hour of playing, he even had a chance of a hat trick, but he did not profit from it. If you assimilated, you might even have a feeling. In the last half hour, Maurizio Sarria's favorites collected and retained their advantage.

Napoli also lost immediately against Arsenal with 0: 1. The shotguners broke into fourth place in the Premier League and in the first match they completely overshadowed Carla Ancelotti's defeat (2: 0).

36 minutes into the match, the San Paolo players reduced their lead as Alexandre Lacazette broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 – 4, much to the home crowd's dismay. Alex Meret's pass seemed to narrow the back line. Napoli was in a losing position, as he should have hit four times in the future. In 180 minutes he didn't shake a network of artillery guns once.

Valencia has reliably eliminated Villarreal
Even before the game, it was clear that Valencia would advance to the semi-final, where Villarreal started 3-1 in the first game at home. In Mestalla the promotion was confirmed by Antonio Latorre and Dani Parejo.
