Eintracht Frankfurt are playing at home against Inter in the 1/8-finals of Europa League. The Eagles knocked out Shakhtar Donetsk with an overall score of 6-3. Eintracht won all of their games in the group stage and are one of the favourites to triumph in the competition. Over the weekend, The Eagles achieved a late comeback with 3-2 over Hoffenheim and continued with their stable performance at home. The last defeat of Eintracht on Commerzbank-Arena was on 22 December in which Bayern Munich took the three points in Bundesliga after a 3-0 victory.
Inter succeeded against Rapid Wien in the 1/16-finals after two wins with an overall score of 5-0 and continued to the next phase of the competition. Although Mauro Icardi didn’t play, Nerazzurri are still dangerous in an attack, and despite the fact they didn’t take the three points in the previous two rounds of Serie A, they are still one of the scariest team in Europa League. Luciano Spalletti is an experienced coach, who can well judge the abilities of his team.
In the European tournaments, Inter are showing stable performance in defence and rarely allows mistakes. Nerazzurri conceded just seven goals in the group stage of the Champions League against Barcelona, Tottenham and PSV – teams that are capable of attacking. Eintracht Frankfurt are also that kind of a side, and we think that Inter will play defensively on Commerzbank-Arena. We also expect the home team to take the initiative and will not lose against Nerazzurri.
