Eintracht Frankfurt vs Benfica Match Preview
Eintracht Frankfurt were left with ten men early in the first leg and now host Benfica for the second leg of their Europa League clash looking to bounce back from a 4-2 loss in Lisbon, where goals from Luka Jovic and Goncalo Paciencia left a lot to play for at PSD Bank Arena.
Die Adler have thus seen a 15-match unbeaten streak across competitions ended and they struggled to recuperate quickly, where Augsburg snatched all three Bundesliga points in a 1-3 upset in Frankfurt – as Adi Hutter was left with ten men on the pitch once again early in the second half.
Benfica have been led by inspired Joao Felix who bagged a hat-trick against Eintracht and assisted Ruben Dias for the fourth, building on such a performance with a goal against Vitoria Setubal (4-2 win on Sunday) and two assists for Rafa Silva beforehand. They will now want more and we expect the visitors very motivated at PSD Bank Arena.
Aguias have thus bagged their sixth win in seven outings and only saw Sporting CP (1-0) beat them in Taca de Portugal along the way, boasting great team record and a high-scoring spell of form – where they netted 12 goals in the last three outings across competitions.
We don’t feel the visitors will punch their ticket to the semi-finals with a win here, though, and we’ll now rather go for Eintracht Frankfurt to turn this one their way. While we question if this will be enough to get past the Portuguese rivals, we’ll still back a Home win at 3/4 with bet365.
We do feel the visitors will get on the scoresheet to and we’ll go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/7 with Paddy Power, which seems like buying money for old rope with Eintracht’s absolute need for goals and another exciting contest looming this time around.
