Eintracht Frankfurt vs Benfica | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
In the worst possible time, Eintracht entered a slump which could make this season an ultimate failure. This is maybe the most important game of the whole generation, and the Eagles need to find a way to step up and to bounce back into the saddle. Otherwise, a promising year could end badly. Meanwhile, Benfica plays well, and the Portuguese Eagles have been on a rampage in the recent two weeks. They are coming to Germany with high morale and advantage which is solid but doesn’t guarantee anything.

Form Eintracht Frankfurt
After 16 straight games in which they haven’t lost, the boys from Commerzbank Arena recorded two tough defeats in just three days. After allowing four goals in Lisbon, they were beaten at home conceding three times. Plus, this is the second consecutive match which they ended with 10 players on the pitch. Whether is that a sign of a growing frustration or something else, we will see. Several huge chances were missed against Augsburg, which is why eventually they lost that match. Eintracht had a solid run of four straight at home without a goal allowed, and if they think about eliminating Benfica, a tough defense is imperative for them in the upcoming meeting.
Opposite to the rival, Benfica comes in this one with high hopes, and with excellent morale. Only one defeat and six wins in the previous 7 events gives them the right to dream big. Plus, the latest three victories they recorded were massive, and the total goal difference during that stretch is 12:5. All those games saw them netting four times. The Eagles have two defeats in the most recent 10 trips away from La Luz. One in Zagreb, 1:0 and another in the semifinal of Tacca de Portugals against Sporting with the same result. These two matches are in fact the only ones where Benfica’s offense couldn’t net two or more goals.
