Eintracht Frankfurt fans are going to be making their presence known in Milan when they take on Inter at San Siro in the Europa League round of 16 second leg.
The Bundesliga outfit will travel to Italy on 14 March and boy are they going to have a serious away following, having been given an insane 13.500 away allocation for the fixture.
Frankfurt fans are renowned for being a noisy bunch and brought 10.000 rabid supporters to the Italian capital when they beat Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico. With barely any Lazio fans showing up, you could have been forgiven for thinking Frankfurt were the home team.
Eintracht’s journey so far
Under Coach Adi Hütter, Eintracht Frankfurt picked up maximum points in Group H, scoring 17 goals and conceding just five. They also cruised through the last round after beating Shakhtar Donetsk 4-1at home and drawing 2-2 away.

The only time Eintracht previously played against an Italian side in the Europa League was against during their two victories against Lazio this season.
