Strasbourg hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in a first leg from the Europa League playoffs
Strasbourg hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in a first leg from the Europa League playoffs. This game is going to be played at the Stade de la Meinau in Strasbourg. Let’s examine it in our Europa League predictions.
In the previous round of the qualifiers, Strasbourg did the job against the Bulgarian side Lokomotiv Plovdiv. The French side achieved two 1-0 wins, which were enough for them to progress. In the second leg Thierry Laurey’s boys hosted Lokomotiv at home and finished the job. The only goal in the game was scored by Lucien Zohi after just seven minutes of playing.
In the Ligue 1 Strasbourg started the new season with two consecutive draws. In their last game they faced Reims away from home and won a point after a 0-0 draw. They are still looking for their first win in the league for the new campaign.
Eintracht Frankfurt had a great campaign in Europa League last season, reaching the semi-finals. The club sold some of its best players during the summer market, but they remain a really competitive team.
In the third round of the qualifiers, Eintracht faced Vaduz and progressed in a dominant way. The German side won the first leg in Liechtenstein with 5-0 and after a 1-0 win at home reached the playoffs.
Few days ago Eintracht started with a win the new season in the Bundesliga. Adi Hutter’s team hosted Hoffenheim at home and enjoyed a 1-0 win. The only goal in the game was scored in the first minute, when the central defender Martin Hinteregger put the ball in the net.
These are our Europa League predictions for the playoffs clash between Strasbourg and Eintracht Frankfurt. We consider the German team a favourite here, but never underrestimate a side from the Ligue 1.
