GREAT EINTRACHT. The current season for teams from Frankfurt is unique. In the European cups they are unbeaten this season, winning 8 out of 10 meetings and not just anybody, because they left behind, among others, Lazio twice, Marseille twice, Shakhtar Donetsk and Inter Milan twice. In turn, Benfica eliminated Galatasaray and Benfica after dropping out of the Champions League. Will Eintracht, who is doing well so far, still remain unbeaten in the Europa League games?
- Benfica – on six lines before the end of the league season Benfica is the first in the table, but has the same number of points as the second Porto. In the Europa League in the last seasons they are doing quite well losing only one of thirteen played matches. Tyronne Ebuehi, German Conti, Gabriel Pires heal injuries and Jonas pauses for cards.
- Eintracht – in 2019 Adi Hutter’s players are unbeaten in matches for the stakes. It is certainly a great achievement of this team. Of the fifteen meetings at that time in the Bundesliga and the Europa League they won nine times, and six meetings ended in draws. This series made Eintracht jump to the fourth place in the league, which guarantees the start of the next season in the Champions League (they have four points advantage over the fifth place). We’re really looking forward to the clash between the two attack teams. Benfica is probably the favorite because he plays at home, but the teams seem to be even. Our dream is alive. We will have to achieve the best performance in order to be in a good position in the rematch match – said the Eintracht coach before the Thursday match. Timothy Chandler has a grudge.
Forecast: Benfica in the previous twenty-two games against home crowd in the Europa League could not score in just one match. However, in seventeen of these clashes, the hosts were sent to the opponents’ goal at least twice. In turn, Eintracht won 8 of 10 clashes in this edition of the Europa League scoring 24 goals in them. As Adi Hutter spoke, it will be a meeting of two teams focused on the offensive, which is why I count on goals in this confrontation. Proposed types for this match: both teams will score – YES (rate 1.68) / over 2.5 goals (odds 1.94).
