Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Vitoria Guimaraes
Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Vitoria Guimaraes at the Commerzbank-Arena in a game from Group F of Europa League. For the hosts this match is really important and crucial. In our Europa League predictions we will explain you why.
For Eintracht Frankfurt this is “all or nothing” type of situation. A situation in which they must give their all and make one final step towards the next phase of the competition. At this moment the Germans are second in the group with 9 points, but the third Standard Liege are following with just two points less.
Last season Eintracht Frankfurt reached the 1/2-finals of the competition and they were really close to reach the final as well. But this season they had some doubtful results in this group, losing against Standard Liege and Arsenal. Lucky for them, now they hold their faith in their own hands. If they win on Thursday, they won’t care what’s happening between Standard Liege and Arsenal in the other match.
In the previous round of the group stage Eintracht basically sacked Arsenal’s manager Unai Emery. The Germans achieved a 2-1 win at the Emirates and soon after this Emery was fired. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the score for the Gunners, but after the break the Japanese international Daichi Kamada scored twice for Eintracht and secured the win for them.
Vitoria Guimaraes on the other hand are just waiting for the group stage to end, so they can concentrate on their domestic effforts. The Portuguese team is 4th in Group F with just 2 points won, so they already said goodbye to Europa League. For them this final match in Frankfurt does not hold any meaning at all.
That’s our Europa League predictions for the match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Vitoria Guimaraes. We expect a good performance and a win for the German team here.
