Statement made by Spalletti

“Seeing as it is practically a final, I want to see the attitude of a team that is starved and wants a result. I’ve seen them in training all term and they never let their heads drop.
“Now the test is to forget what has happened in the past and focus on getting the job done now. Don’t forget Eintracht got through a group that had Tottenham, Marseille and Sporting.
''Last year they won away to a Barcelona side that eliminated us, so we have total respect for the work Oliver Glasner is doing, we know it will be tough.''
