German Bundesliga side Frankfurt hold a huge 4-1 advantage in this tie. Will that be enough to see them comfortably through to the next round? Probably. Salzburg has a mountain to climb in his and doesn’t look to be defensively up to the challenge.

Frankfurt in full control of the tie

It was a cruise for Frankfurt in the first leg of this tie and they nearly managed a clean sheet victory as well. But they conceded from the penalty spot five minutes from time. The star of the night for Frankfurt was Daichi Kamada who knocked in a hattrick.

That was just the third game between the two teams and all three now have been settled by a home win. The last time that Frankfurt went to Austria was 26 years ago when they faced Salzburg in the UEFA Cup quarter-final. Their record in Austria is W1 D1 L1.

In last season’s competition, Frankfurt made the semi-finals where they lost to Chelsea, playing a total of 14 games in the competition (including qualification). This is their third appearance in the round of 32, with a W1 L1 record from their two previous visits.

(odds taken 1851 GMT, Tuesday 25th February)

Frankfurt have a very good away record in the Europa League as it stands at W11 D3 L4. This season they posted a W2 L1 record in the group stage. In the quarter-finals last season they lost 4-2 at Benfica, which is their only away loss in the knockout phase of the competition (W1 D3) to date.

From the 18 previous UEFA competitions ties in which they had won the first leg at home, Frankfurt have converted on 15 of those occasions. Four of their last five games incidentally, across all competitions, have produced at least four goals.


Salzburg struggling after key departures

During the January transfer window, Salzburg lost Takumi Minamino and Erling Haaland. They haven’t really picked up the pieces after those exits. Their glimmer of hope in this tie came from the penalty spot late on in Germany.

But do they have enough to turn this tie around? Salzburg dropped from this season’s Champions League group stage, finishing behind Liverpool and Napoli, but they did score 16 goals in their six games.

Their record against teams from Germany is W5 D3 L5 and they are unbeaten in five on home soil against teams from across the border, not conceding in any fixtures during that sequence (W3 D2 L1).

Until a home loss against Napoli on Matchday 4 in the Champions League, Salzburg had been on a massive 19 match unbeaten streak of European home form. They lost their next home game against Liverpool.

But they have won each of their last seven Europa League home games, so they have that going for them. They are unbeaten in their last fourteen such fixtures (W12 D2).
