Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Eintracht Frankfurt will look to defend their slim lead (2-1) in the Europa League tie with Real Betis when the two sides face each other at Deutsche Bank Park on Thursday. Die Adler have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Serbia winger Filip Kostic, who scored the opener at “Benito Villamarin”, whilst Goncalo Paciencia is back from suspension.
Los Beticos, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Bundesliga outfit. Given the attacking potential of the two sides, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. The likes of Bellerin, Guardado, Tello, Montoya, and Bellerin have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
