Eintracht Frankfurt 7/5 to beat Inter Milan in Thursday’s Europa League showdown
Competition: Europa League
Market: Eintracht Frankfurt win
Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to gain an early advantage in their Europa League last 16 tie, Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt will welcome Inter Milan to the Commerzbank-Arena on Thursday evening.
Starting with the hosts, enjoying a bright run of form both domestically and in Europe, the mood in Eintracht Frankfurt’s camp should be at a season high. Sat three points adrift of climbing into the Champions League positions in the Bundesliga, the hosts are also enjoying a three-match winning run and are unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions. More impressive, Frankfurt have won all four of their Europa League matches at the Commerzbank-Arena and they have remarkably now scored 14 goals in their last four home matches, more than any other side in Europe.
As for the visitors, while Inter Milan might still be in the race for a top-four finish in Serie A, the Italian giants have struggled away from home in Europe of late. Failing to win their last two domestic matchups against Fiorentina and Cagliari, Milan lost two of their three Champions League away games before crashing out at the group stage. More worrying for Thursday’s visitors, Inter have remarkably lost four of their last five Europa League matches on the road and have recorded just a single away victory in their last eight attempts. Given Inter’s struggles on the road, we’re backing a home victory on Thursday.
