Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction – Can Frankfurt bounce back at home?

Thursday night’s hosts, Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking forward to returning to their Commerzbank-Arena after having had to play back-to-back away matches recently in the Europa League and German Bundesliga, both ending up in defeats for Frankfurt.

First was a 1-0 defeat in last week’s 1st leg of their Europa League play-off tie away at French opponents, Strasbourg, which was swiftly followed by another defeat, this time in the German domestic top flight against RB Leipzig where they lost 2-1.

Recent results on home turf at their Commerzbank-Arena have produced much more favourable results for Eintracht Frankfurt as they recorded back-to-back wins in the Europa League against Flora and Vaduz respectively, along with a Bundesliga victory over Hoffenheim.

But it’s in the Europa League where Frankfurt have shone in recent times as the hosts are unbeaten in their last 15 home ties in the competition, which consists of 11 wins and 4 draws. The hosts will therefore be confident they can overturn this single-goal deficit here on Thursday night.

Strasbourg Prediction – Can Strasbourg hold on in Frankfurt?

By securing their 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in last week’s 1st leg of this Europa League clash, Strasbourg extended their unbeaten record to 5 matches in all competitions, and indeed, had suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches overall.

However, the French club suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Rennes in the French Ligue 1 over the weekend and now face a tough trip to Germany to face a solid Eintracht Frankfurt outfit who have made themselves extremely difficult to beat at home in the Europa League.

Strasbourg themselves have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches on the road in all competitions, but the flip-side to this is the fact that the French visitors have won just 5 of their last 15 matches on their travels.

Results away from home in the Europa League have produced a mixed return in recent times for Strasbourg as they recorded a 1-0 win at Bulgarian outfit, Lokomotiv Plovdiv, but have also fallen foul to a 2-1 loss at Israeli outfit, Maccabi Tel Aviv.
