Benfica vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview
Eintracht Frankfurt travel to Lisbon for the first leg of their clash on the back of a thriller 1-2 win at Schalke 04 and a 15-match unbeaten streak in 2019, which sees them 4th placed in Bundesliga and looking for a ticket to Europa League semi-finals.
Luka Jovic’s last-gasp winner in Gelsenkirchen also means Die Adler connected their fifth win in a row, after beating Fortuna (0-3), Inter Milan (0-1), Nurnberg (1-0), and Stuttgart (3-0) since early March. They’ll now undeniably be in a great mood and Adi Hutter’s men promise a great challenge at Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.
Benfica have, on the other hand, beaten Feirense (1-4) over the weekend with a comeback completed through goals from Pizzi, Andre Almeida, and Haris Seferovic (x2). They keep up with Porto at the top of Primeira Liga but still was only a return to the winning ways after a disappointing 1-0 Taca de Portugal loss at Sporting Cp – which cut their campaign just short of a Final.
Portuguese Eagles could thus be more shaken up and this could be felt in their trip to Santa Maria da Feira, despite a great pick-me-up earned in the end. We do feel Frankfurt will be motivated to capitalize and we do see the visitors leaving unbeaten on Thursday.
We’ll thus stick with them in the markets too as we go for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 4/6 with bet365, hoping to see Eintracht in good spirits and denying the rivals a lead ahead of the second-leg clash at Commerzbank Arena.
We should be in for goals as both sides enjoy an attacking approach lately and this has us going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/10 with bet365 as well. Both will want a positive result but it seems they’ll need goals to do so, which still promises an exciting contest.
