Venue: Red Bull Arena.
The Europa League resumes with the second leg of the fixtures played last week. Eintracht Frankfurt claimed a comfortable win against Salzburg in the previous week as a hattrick from Diachi Kamachi in the first fifty minutes laid matters to bed before Filip Kostic drove the final nail in the coffin with the fourth goal. However, the Australian Champions haven’t been in a convincing form as they’ve lost so many games in Europe.
Though their fans are still having a glimmer of hope considering the recent team performances against Napoli and defending champions Liverpool, if they could play well against the German side, they can win. Still, it will be hard to overturn a four-goal deficit. An additional fact is the defence of both teams, as it seems unstable.
Eintracht Frankfurt might experience a little fatigue and fitness issue after their involvement in the match against Union Berlin late on Monday night. But they have to get themselves together and be vigilant at the back to avoid an unexpected comeback. It is expected that both teams will score, and it promises to be a show of flair and attacks.
