Sébastien Haller: Eintracht’s physical marksman 

When Eintracht signed striker Sébastian Haller before the start of the 2017/18 campaign, they secured the services of a player who left a lasting impression at his previous club in the Netherlands. The France Under-21 international spent two and a half seasons with FC Utrecht, scoring 47 goals and assisting a further 16 in all competitions for the Eredivisie outfit. Having fired the club into the UEFA Europa League via the play-offs shortly before his move to the River Main, Haller is now set to gain his first taste of the competition after helping the Eagles win the DFB Cup in 2018.  

Haller began his footballing education in his native France, where he joined AJ Auxerre’s renowned youth academy at just 13 years of age. He was promoted to Auxerre’s professional setup in 2011, going on to make 50 appearances in Ligue 2 before joining Utrecht, initially on loan, in January 2015.  

The good-natured attacker hit the ground running during his debut campaign in Frankfurt. As well as registering four goals and three assists during Eintracht’s remarkable cup run, he also scored nine and assisted four goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances, including a spectacular last-minute bicycle-kick in a 2-1 victory over VfB Stuttgart that earned him the Goal of the Month award for September 2017. Just a few weeks later, Haller scored a carbon copy of the goal in a friendly against TSV Lehnerz, proving that lightning can sometimes strike twice.
