Benfica welcomes Eintracht Frankfurt in a first match from the 1/4-finals of the Europa League. This clash is going to be played at the Estadio da Luz in the beautiful city of Lisboa. There are our vip soccer predictions today for this fixture in the Portuguese capital.
Benfica didn’t do very well in the Champions League this season, but they still finished 3rd in their group, which allowed them to enter Europa League. Their performance in this competition is different and now the Eagles are just one step away from the 1/2-finals. We can say pretty much the same about Eintracht Frankfurt, which were very convincing in Europa League from the beginning of the competition. They are dreaming about playing in the final.
During the 1/8-finals Benfica faced Dinamo Zagreb and needed extra time in order to eliminate the Croatian team. The Portuguese side lost the first leg in Zagreb with 0-1, which gave Dinamo a very good chances to progress. But the second leg in Lisboa ended with a 3-0 win for Bruno Lage’s side. The regular time ended 1-0 for the home side with a goal from Jonas. In the extra time Benfica scored two more, thanks to Francisco Ferreira and Alex Grimaldo. These two goals secured their progression.
Meanwhile Eintracht Frankfurt are very convincing in Europa League this season. The Germans did impressive work during the group stage and they kept this form in the knockout phase as well. In the previous round Eintracht eliminated Inter from the competition. After a 0-0 win in Frankfurt, a 1-0 win in Milan secured Eintracht’s progression. Luka Jovic scored the only goal in the game.
