Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction

Eintracht Frankfurt sailed through the group stages of the Europa League as they finished top of Group H with a 100% winning record by recording home and away wins against Lazio, Apollon and Marseille, and finishing up as joint second highest goalscorers behind Sevilla (18 goals) during the group stage.

The hosts look in good shape ahead of this two-legged clash against Inter Milan as Frankfurt are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions which include Bundesliga wins over Freiburg, Hannover 96 and Hoffenheim as well as a Europa League win over Shakhtar Donetsk, with Frankfurt running out comfortable 4-1 winners.

The German club possess a good record in recent times in the Europa League as they’ve won seven of their last eight matches and are unbeaten in their last 11 matches overall at this level.

Frankfurt also possess an impressive record in this competition at their Commerzbank-Arena as the hosts have won eight of their last nine on home soil, so they’ll fancy their chances of getting a positive result against Inter Milan here this evening.


Key-Facts – Eintracht Frankfurt v Inter Milan

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have won 7 of their last 8 matches in the Europa League
  • 8 of Eintracht Frankfurt’s 12 home matches in the Europa League have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 5 of Inter Milan’s last 9 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Inter Milan Prediction

Inter Milan head into this first leg having failed to win either of their last two matches in Serie A as the visitors have drawn 3-3 at Fiorentina and suffered a 2-1 loss away at Cagliari on the weekend, so they could have their work cut out when facing Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night.

Inter have been blowing a bit hot and cold in recent weeks as they went four matches without a win from mid-January to early February, then they recorded four wins on the trot in all competitions with wins against Parma and Sampdoria in Serie A, along with a home and away win over Austrian club, Rapid Vienna in the Europa League.

Although Inter Milan have won their last three matches on the trot in the Europa League with wins against Sparta Prague and the aforementioned Rapid Vienna home and away, the visitors possess an ordinary looking record away from home.

Inter have managed just two wins from their last nine away matches in the Europa League, so a trip to face an in-form Eintracht Frankfurt outfit is expected to be a stern test indeed for Luciano Spalletti’s side here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Eintracht Frankfurt are in solid form right now and could catch Inter Milan cold in this first leg.
