Eintracht Frankfurt and Barcelona played out a 1-1 draw in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg tie at the iconic Deutsche Bank Park on Thursday.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Ansgar Knauff gave the home side the lead in the 48th minute before Ferran Torres equalised for the Spanish side12 minutes later.
Xavi Hernandez’s men are unbeaten since January 20, when they lost away at Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey’s last 16.
The second leg will be played next Thursday, at Camp Nou.
Meanwhile, Xavi has joined forward Torres in criticising Eintracht Frankfurt’s pitch.
After the game, Blaugrana frontman Torres, the scorer on the night, complained about the pitch, claiming that the Deutsche Bank Stadium surface ‘wasn’t in good condition’.
And his head coach, Xavi, agreed with that sentiment.
“They have come out like demons on the counterattack,” he said of Frankfurt.
“The pitch was not in a good condition. Camp Nou has to be a pressure cooker next Thursday.”
