Eintracht Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner thought his side’s performance warranted all three points in their 2-1 victory over Union Berlin today.

Frankfurt left it late, with Evan N’Dicka scoring the winner deep into injury time, but Glasner felt his side could have put the game to bed earlier.

“The late winner was thoroughly deserved when you look at the game as a whole. The emotions are obviously wonderful,” Glasner told reporters after the final whistle and added:

“We should really have led by two or three goals at half-time. Evan Ndicka’s header was incredible, just like Goncalo [Paciencia]’s strike against Antwerp.

“A lot of our players played key roles today and having covered 122 kilometres, we ran an awful lot after our game on Thursday. The lads put a great deal into the game and we’re getting a lot out of it at the moment.”
