Eintracht Frankfurt host Royal Antwerp at the Deutsche Bank Park in Group D of the Europa League. The hosts are at the top of the group with ten points from four matches while the visitors have just a single point from their four matches and are at the bottom of the group. Eintracht Frankfurt come into the game with an away 2-0 win over Freiburg in the Bundesliga. The Freiburg win means that Oliver Glasner’s men are on a three-game winning streak and are also unbeaten for four straight fixtures. Eintracht Frankfurt have already qualified to the next stage and three points against Royal Antwerp will secure their qualification to the round of sixteen. They are yet to lose a single game in the Europa League group stage so far as well.
Royal Antwerp lost 2-1 to Sint-Truidense in the Belgian Pro League before their trip to Frankfurt. The Belgian side are yet to win a single game in the group stage and are out of contention of finishing at the top of the group. However, they can still make it to the preliminary knock out round and a win against Eintracht Frankfurt is imperative for Brian Priske’s men. Royal Antwerp have won just once in their last five away matches and are yet to win a single game in the Europa League group stage so far. It is also to be noted that the German side were triumphant at Royal Antwerp’s home fixture in the first meeting between the two sides.
Eintracht Frankfurt are on a fine run of form in the Europa League and are unlikely to lose to Royal Antwerp, a side that is struggling to win games. The Bundesliga side bring in home advantage to the game and will be favourites to get the three points. We are backing Eintracht Frankfurt to win lead at both half time and full time.
