In the Europa Conference League, Paxten Aaronson subbed on in the 56th and Timmy Chandler followed in the 79th for Eintracht’s 6-0 home win over HJK in group G.

It was extremely important that we were completely focused. Overall, it was a great night for everyone involved. It was also great for Timmy that he was rewarded for the hard work he always puts in. It hasn’t always been easy for him, but regardless of that he’s an important player.”
