Eintracht Frankfurt Preview
Eintracht, reigning Europa League champions, are siting at the bottom of their group with just four points after a campaign with up and downs in the world’s top club competition. However, their only win in the competition so far came precisely against Marseille, beating them by a score of 0-1 on the second matchday.
Their last Champions League match saw them lose by a score of 3-2 against Tottenham. Frankfurt have won all three of their matches since then, scoring ten goals and conceding just two, so they will be hoping that this good form will help them take the three points against their opponents in this fixture.
Absences: Makoto Hasebe, Ansgar Knauff, Tuta.
Probable lineup: Kevin Trapp; Hrvoje Smolcic, Kristijan Jakic, Evan Ndicka; Éric Ebimbe, Daichi Kamada, Djibril Sow, Christopher Lenz; Mario Götze, Jesper Lindstrom; Randal Kolo Muani.
After starting their Champions League group stage adventure with two consecutive defeats, Marseille came back from the dead to win two matches in a row against group leaders Sporting Lisbon. Thus, they start this matchday tied in second place and with a clear chance of qualifying for the next round.
However, unlike their opponents, the French team is not in a good moment, as they have not won again since their last match in this competition, losing 1-0 to PSG and Lens in Ligue 1. Therefore, finding a solution to their lack of effectiveness will be key, considering the offensive momentum of their opponents.
Doubts: Eric Bailly.
Probable lineup: Pau Lopez, Chancel Mbemba, Leonardo Balerdi, Sead Kolasinac, Jonathan Clauss, Valentin Rongier, Jordan Veretout, Nuno Tavares, Amine Harit, Matteo Guendouzi, Alexis Sanchez.
The position teams occupy in this Group D is not an indicator of anything, as it has become clear that each team is capable of beating the other when it is at its best.On this occasion, we believe that it is Frankfurt that has the better present ahead of this crucial clash.
Marseille’s lack of goal could not have come at a worse time, as Eintracht has been very effective in recent matches, although Knauff’s absence could weigh a little.
Still, we are confident that Frankfurt will be able to win, and its history backs them up, as they won on the three previous occasions they hosted a French team, including a 4-0 win over this same Marseille in the 2018/19 season.
Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt Moneyline (FRA 2 – MAR 0)
