Guimaraes – Eintracht Frankfurt Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 15:00

This piece of information further cements my picks for this clash, and I think you should back this option at one of the betting sites in Nigeria which are notorious for having great odds. However, this match took place over 9 years ago and a lot has changed since then. These teams clashed just once in their past when Frankfurt came out victorious by the score of 2-3. Furthermore, in 4 of the last 5 games that Strasbourg have played in front of the home supporters, we saw both teams scoring.

Adi Hutters men have scored an impressive average of two goals per away match, but theyre averaging 1.39 expected goals for, which isnt as impressive. Unlike the hosts, Frankfurt have scored plenty of goals in the Europa League this season, especially away from home. However, their underlying numbers would suggest that theyve been a tad fortunate to score as many as they have. To breach a very strong Benfica side, they may need to offer more in terms of creativity.

The Portuguese Eagles proved their worth in the first leg, but coach Bruno Lage must warn his men against complacency. Thanks to a 4-2 win over ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt Benfica moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League semis. A man to watch in the away team will be Portugal rising star Joao Felix, who scored a hat-trick in the first leg.

Goal Timings

The Eagles, as they call them in Germany, are looking as good as ever despite having sold some of their best players. I expect to see them heavily contributing to the total goal count this Thursday evening. After a 5-0 triumph in the opening leg, they slowed it down a notch in the second by giving some of their youngsters a chance to prove their worth. On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt have been a real goal-scoring machine recently having won the previous 8 matches with a goal difference of +20. In the previous round of the competition, they annihilated Vaduz and showcased all of their potentials.

Benfica did eventually make it through to the quarter-finals, though they made hard work of seeing off a determined Dinamo Zagreb side. Having been forced into extra-time by the Croats, Thursdays Portuguese hosts may find it tough against a Frankfurt side that proved just how good they are when beating Inter Milan at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the last-16.

In fact, theyve done an excellent job of preventing their opponents from creating, as theyve surrendered just 0.22 and 0.74 expected goals in their two home UEL home matches this season. Those two matches combined saw Thursdays hosts give away a total of just four shots on target, which is a big part of why theyre yet to concede a goal on home soil. Fortunately, Benfica have defended very well in front of a home crowd.

Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Strasbourg v Eintracht Frankfurt match are shown here (plus the best game odds). Lets see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. Therefore, we predict a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90 minutes. When taking all factors into account, Eintracht Frankfurt and Strasbourg should both get enough opportunities to score, although its hard to separate the two.

Our prediction for this Europa League match:

With the hosts posting poor attacking numbers at home and neither giving a great deal away in their respective home and away games, a bet on a low-scoring game makes plenty of appeal. On the face of it, this may appear to be a game where goals are guaranteed; in their respective division, neither Frankfurt nor Benfica are shy in coming forward, though when we take a closer look at their underlying numbers in this competition, Under 2.5 Goals stands out as a bet that represents value at the current prices.

The run of form that they are in right now is certainly a stark contrast to the one that the guests have under their belt. This, without a doubt, makes Vaduz the underdogs by a mile to come out on top this week. Frankfurt have been a force to reckon with on their home turf. They have succumbed to a defeat on not more than two occasions in their last ten clashes.

Going forward, Benfica have looked somewhat tame since dropping out of the UCL, especially on their own patch. They failed to score when hosting Galatasaray in the last-16, while they only notched once before extra-time against Zagreb last time out in this competition. Moreover, their creativity numbers have been poor, as they posted 0.91 expected goals for against Galatasaray and just 1.14 in 130 minutes in the previous round. Such numbers dont exactly point towards home goals on Thursday.
