It is Europa League football betting that is on the cards here for Eintracht Frankfurt v Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

Eintracht Frankfurt Preview – Can the Bundliesga side find their winning touch?

There hasn’t been a victory this season for Eintracht Frankfurt so far.

They are D3 L2 in all competitions.

It’s been a run of three straight drawn matches that they have put together in their most recent matches.

Those were all league games from the German top flight.

In the match outright for Europa League betting, Eintracht Frankfurt are 4/6 odds on favourites* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).

Only in one of their five matches this season have they managed to score more than one goal in a game.

They have failed to hit the back of the net in two fixtures.

So we may not be shaping up to expect a high scoring fixture as they entertain Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

Our betting prediction:
Frankfurt 1-goal winning margin

* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021)


Under 2.5 goals is a quote of 8/13 odds-on* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).

Frankfurt missed out on European action last season.

For the 2019/20 campaign, they were in the Europa League and reached the Round of 16 after starring in the qualification rounds.

There was a fifth-place finish for Frankfurt in last season’s Bundesliga.

In their one previous match against Fence, there was a 2-2 away draw.

That was back in the somewhat complicated 2006/07 UEFA Cup second Group Stage.

In their last five home games in Europe, Eintracht Frankfurt are W2 L3.


Fenerbahce Preview – Can the visitors avoid defeat?

If you look solely at the respective form of the two sides, then Fenerbahce look the better of the two.

They have won five of six matches in all competitions this season (D1).

In the Play Off round of this season’s Europa League, they faced HJK Helsinki.

Fenerbahce won both matches, collecting a 7-2 aggregate win overall in that.

In the match outright for Europa League football betting, Fenerbahce are a quote of 13/2 for the win* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).

This is the first time back in the Europa League since the 2018/19 season when they lost in the Round of 32 against Zenit.

The road form for the Turkish side reads W1 D1 L4 in their last six Europa League away matches.

As a positive for Fenerbahce they have taken four clean sheets in the six fixtures played this season.

This obviously looks like being a tougher assignment on the night for them.

There will be easier matches to come in the group, so they may not play for much more than a draw.

The half time draw is a reasonable proposition for Europa League betting at 11/8* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).

They’ll be doing well to stick in there until the break.


Eintracht Frankfurt vs Fenerbahce Betting Advice

Eintracht Frankfurt should be the stronger of the two sides, especially with home advantage in play for them.

But their form hasn’t been great this season, not quite clicking in front of the goal.

They may take a while to warm to this task and the Half Time Draw at 11/8 is the football betting pick* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).


Key Facts – Eintracht Frankfurt vs Fenerbahce Betting Tip

  • Eintracht Frankfurt draw their one previous match with Fenerbahce 2-2

As for the overall outcome, we think that Frankfurt may just find a way to get across the line.

So it’s Frankfurt for the win by a 1 goal margin at 11/4* (odds recorded 2008 GMT 13th September 2021).
