Match Preview Benfica vs Eintracht Frankfurt
The Portuguese team eliminated Dinamo Zagreb in the previous round after extra times. Both matches ended with 1-0 wins of the hosts, only the second one had a happier ending for the Eagles who scored twice more in the additional 30 minutes. Though we need to say, that they didn’t shine in that game. The German team shocked the world by eliminating Inter in Milan, following a goalless draw at Commerz-Bank stadium. A minimal win was enough to advance to the next round and to make a huge sensation.
Hosts played against Feirense in the previous round of the Portuguese championship, and they opened the game by conceding a goal. Everything quickly changed, and that meeting ended with their convincing win, 1-4. When examining the home matches, we can see that Benfica often keeps clean sheets, and for example five of the previous six games ended like that. On the other hand, the attack is working correctly, and 7 of 10 most recent clashes at La Luz saw them netting at least twice. That stadium is their stronghold, with only one defeat over the past 15 matches.
Form Eintracht Frankfurt
Adi Hutter targeted the form of his players in the best possible way, and Eintracht now has five straight wins, conceding the first goal after four consecutive matches, against Schalke this weekend. Furthermore, when speaking about the current shape of this crew it needs to be said that they haven’t felt the taste of defeat in the latest 15 encounters. Now that has to mean something. Only one draw and nine triumphs in 10 games is a record which needs to be acknowledged, especially when a team comes from the Bundesliga. The situation is similar with the road matches. Four victories, three of them without an allowed goal. Jovic, Rebic, Kostic and the boys are always efficient, and with the current state of the backline, Eintracht really looks powerful.
