Eintracht Frankfurt welcomes Benfica
We are taking our attention to the city of Frankfurt, where Eintracht Frankfurt welcomes Benfica in a second leg from the 1/4-finals of Europa League. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our winning soccer predictions for this clash.
Eintracht are the team in a much harder position at the moment. The German side lost the first leg in Lisboa with 2-4, which gives Benfica a solid advantage before the second leg. What Eintracht must do now is win with at least two goals difference in order to close this gap in the scoreline. But it won’t be easy, because Benfica are showing a solid form lately.
Eintracht were unlucky in the first leg, because after just 20 minutes of playing the German side recieved a red card. Obite N’Dicka was sent off, which allowed Benfica to dominate the game. The talented teenager Joao Felix showed his talents and scored a hattrick, while Ruben Dias also scored for the Eagles.
Eintracht managed to keep their chances of progression, thanks to goals from Luka Jovic and Goncalo Paciencia. These two goals will allow Adi Hutter’s players to regroup, get back on their feet and try to achieve the result they need in order to eliminate Benfica.
How we said, Benfica are in a good shape at the moment. Bruno Lage’s boys won four of their last five games in all competitions. In their last game the Eagles achieved a 4-2 win at home against Vitoria Setubal in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Meanwhile Eintracht lost their last two matches. After the defeat in Lisboa, Eintracht suffered another defeat against Augsburg at home. In these two matches Die Adler conceded 7 goals, which is worrying.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Europa League fixture between Eintracht Frankfurt and Benfica on Thursday. We wish you good luck!
