Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form – Can Frankfurt beat Arsenal?

Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have remained unbeaten in their last five games against English visitors, winning two of those. They played host to Chelsea last season in the semi-finals and played out a 1-1 draw. They played out the same scoreline at Stamford Bridge but lost the penalty shoot out. It was 14 games in total that Eintracht Frankfurt played in last season’s Europa League campaign. En route to the semis they eliminated Shakhtar Donetsk, Internazionale and Benfica all of which had dropped from the Champions League.

Frankfurt had to start in this season’s second qualifying round and had an easy time of things against Flora and then Vaduz. They then met Strasbourg in the playoff round and battled their way through that to make it back to the group stage. Their overall record in the Europa League is W21 D6 L3 so they are no mugs at this competition (including qualification games). Impressively Frankfurt have yet to taste defeat at home in the Europa League (qualifying included) with a W12 D3 record. In the group stage specifically, they have won all six home games, conceding just one goal in that sequence.

Arsenal News and Form – Will Gunners handle a tough trip to Germany?

This is no easy opener for the Gunners. Last season they had that successful run to the final, but they were brushed aside in Baku by London rivals Chelsea. It is another Europa League campaign that the Gunners find themselves in after only finishing fifth in the English top-flight last season. Arsenal had been on a five-match winning streak in Europe before that loss in the final against Chelsea. Now they have to start all over again.

It was all too easy for Arsenal in last season’s group stage. They won their three away games without shipping a single goal. In the previous season’s group stage campaign Arsenal went W2 L1 on the road. Overall, including knockout stage fixtures, Arsenal hold a W9 D1 L4 record away from home in the Europa League. They have scored a total of 25 goals in that sequence.

Eintracht Frankfurt v Arsenal Predictions

Eintracht Frankfurt to win: The home side look a good shout in this one. There is certain unreliability about the defence of Arsenal, who blew a 2-0 lead in the premier league on the weekend against Watford to draw. Home win & both teams to score.
