Eintracht Frankfurt vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction & Betting tips
Eintracht Frankfurt and Shakhtar Donetsk played with 2-2 in their first match. Part two will be on the program on Thursday evening.
Eintracht Frankfurt was great in the saddle in the early stages of the first leg. The German cup winner took the lead by a goalkeeper foul on the side of Shakhtar. A little later it became the same, but shortly after Shakhtar took a red card. Almost the entire match, Frankfurt then had a preponderance. Opportunities were also created, but the finish of the Germans was not world-class. In the end it was played with 2-2.
This is not a bad result in a European context, of course, although in the circumstances there was more resident. Now Frankfurt will have to be well-versed in the home match. The current form of Frankfurt is not overwhelming. The team had to settle for a 1-1 tie last weekend in the home match against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The game of Frankfurt was not convincing. Midfielder Gelson Fernandes was injured and can not be used on Thursday. The flush is thin at the center of the midfield.
Shakhtar Donetsk made it very difficult for himself in the first match. Midfielder Taras Stepanenko injured his team by taking two yellow cards in the first quarter. Shakhtar then remained little else than stopping and speculating on the changeover and dead game moments. Afterwards, the team of the Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca was happy with a 2-2 draw. Much more was actually not possible.
Now there is a big challenge for Shakhtar, which is disadvantaged in view of the result from the first leg. At least, it seems, but the Ukrainians can rely on a great outbalance. For example, the last five Europa League games on foreign soil were all won by the orange blacks. The game of Shakhtar, in which there is gambled on the changeover, is extremely suitable for this. No one has given up courage at Donetsk.
