Benfica vs Eintracht Frankfurt Preview, Tips and Odds

Benfica will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to stadium Da Luz in Lisbon for the first leg of their quarter final tie in Europa League. The two teams have never met in a competitive match before. Eintracht might feel as they have already won one battle with Benfica, as young sensation Luka Jovic was brought to Germany on loan from the Eagles, but there is a agreed fee for a potential transfer for just 20 million euros, which on the current transfer marker should be considered as a bargain.

At home the team is unbeaten in the last eight outings and recorded five clean sheets in the previous six games. Benfica are top of the Portuguese League on equal points with Porto. In the previous round of Europa League they needed extra time to prevail over Dinamo Zagreb, after each side won their home leg 1:0.
Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten in their last fifteen outings and recorded 9 victories in the process. The team is currently on a five game winning streak and conceded just one goal during that period. Three encounters of their winning streak featured over 2,5 goals.

In the previous round of Europa League the Germans saw off Inter after a slender 1:0 victory in Milan. The team’s top goalscorer Luka Jovic is continuously linked with a transfer to Real Madrid or Barcelona, but a little known fact is that his playing rights are owned by Benfica, while he is blossoming on loan at Eintracht.
