Jetro Willems is fortunate that his Eintracht Frankfurt Thursday night fully took advantage of the absence of the VAR in the Europa League. Partly due to a buitenspelgoal of Filip Kostic put the Germans themselves at the expense of Benfica for the semi-finals.
Former FC Groningen attacker, Kostic was about half a metre offside when he got the ball in the 37th minute in the rebound binnenwerkte, but the touch judge was in contrast to the furious players and staff of Benfica nothing. Also Willems, who at that time sat on the sofa, expecting that the flag would go up.
“I already thought the offside was,” acknowledged the 25-year-old Dutchman after the match at the Commerzbank-Arena against FOX Sports. “That I had only really when I have the opponent on the couch absolutely love saw. For us, that was a nice bonus, of course.”
