Eintracht Frankfurt will win

Guimaraes – Eintracht Frankfurt Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 15:00

Die Adler are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that Serbian striker Luka Jovic looks unstoppable at the moment, we are tempted to put our money on the Bundesliga outfit. Eintracht Frankfurt are enjoying a very successful season and they are definitely capable of overcoming the deficit at their PSD Bank Arena. You should bear in mind that Eintracht are eyeing their fifth home win of the season in the Europa League.

This piece of information further cements my picks for this clash, and I think you should back this option at one of the betting sites in Nigeria which are notorious for having great odds. However, this match took place over 9 years ago and a lot has changed since then. These teams clashed just once in their past when Frankfurt came out victorious by the score of 2-3. Furthermore, in 4 of the last 5 games that Strasbourg have played in front of the home supporters, we saw both teams scoring.

Adi Hutters men have scored an impressive average of two goals per away match, but theyre averaging 1.39 expected goals for, which isnt as impressive. Unlike the hosts, Frankfurt have scored plenty of goals in the Europa League this season, especially away from home. However, their underlying numbers would suggest that theyve been a tad fortunate to score as many as they have. To breach a very strong Benfica side, they may need to offer more in terms of creativity.

The Portuguese Eagles proved their worth in the first leg, but coach Bruno Lage must warn his men against complacency. Thanks to a 4-2 win over ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt Benfica moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League semis. A man to watch in the away team will be Portugal rising star Joao Felix, who scored a hat-trick in the first leg.

They are of course in the last eight, though their efforts havent exactly been impressive. Since dropping out of the Champions League, Benfica, who reached the final of this competition in both 2013 and 2014, have underwhelmed. They edged past Galatasaray in the last-16, failing to score in front of a home crowd, while they required an extra 30 minutes to see off Dinamo Zagreb in the previous round.

Benfica did eventually make it through to the quarter-finals, though they made hard work of seeing off a determined Dinamo Zagreb side. Having been forced into extra-time by the Croats, Thursdays Portuguese hosts may find it tough against a Frankfurt side that proved just how good they are when beating Inter Milan at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the last-16.

In fact, theyve done an excellent job of preventing their opponents from creating, as theyve surrendered just 0.22 and 0.74 expected goals in their two home UEL home matches this season. Those two matches combined saw Thursdays hosts give away a total of just four shots on target, which is a big part of why theyre yet to concede a goal on home soil. Fortunately, Benfica have defended very well in front of a home crowd.

Eintracht Frankfurt are enjoying a very successful season and they are definitely capable of overcoming the deficit at their PSD Bank Arena. Die Adler are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that Serbian striker Luka Jovic looks unstoppable at the moment, we are tempted to put our money on the Bundesliga outfit. You should bear in mind that Eintracht are eyeing their fifth home win of the season in the Europa League.

Match Events

The Freiburg defender made USA 2014 World Cup squad, but he did not play for the Yanks at the showpiece tournament in Brazil. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as a right midfielder and a right winger as well. It has to be noted that Chandler made 10 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign.

Going forward, Benfica have looked somewhat tame since dropping out of the UCL, especially on their own patch. They failed to score when hosting Galatasaray in the last-16, while they only notched once before extra-time against Zagreb last time out in this competition. Moreover, their creativity numbers have been poor, as they posted 0.91 expected goals for against Galatasaray and just 1.14 in 130 minutes in the previous round. Such numbers dont exactly point towards home goals on Thursday.

The Eagles, as they call them in Germany, are looking as good as ever despite having sold some of their best players. I expect to see them heavily contributing to the total goal count this Thursday evening. After a 5-0 triumph in the opening leg, they slowed it down a notch in the second by giving some of their youngsters a chance to prove their worth. On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt have been a real goal-scoring machine recently having won the previous 8 matches with a goal difference of +20. In the previous round of the competition, they annihilated Vaduz and showcased all of their potentials.
