Our prediction for this Europa League match:
After eliminating Benfica in the Europa League quarter-finals, Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Chelsea at their Commerzbank-Arena. Die Adler are enjoying a season to remember and they are definitely capable of making life difficult for Chelsea in front of home fans. A man to watch in the Bundesliga side will be Serbia international Luka Jovic, who has been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this term.
The Blues, on the other hand, aim to win the Europa League and book their place in the Champions League. Maurizio Sarri is unlikely to stick to his rotation policy this time out and we are positive that he is going to field the best possible side against Eintracht Frankfurt. Anyhow, seeing that the Germans are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Simon Falette):
Simon Falette is a professional footballer who was born in Le Mans, France on February 19, 1992, but he was eligible to play for both France and French Guiana at senior level. Falette decided to represent French Guiana on the international stage, but he has yet to make his debut for the national team.
The 184-cm-tall defender started his club career at Lorient, but he made only one appearance for the first team. After playing 41 games for Lorient B Simon Falette joined Laval on loan in 2012 and in 2013 he signed a loan deal with Brest.
At the end of the 2013/2014 season Simon Falette signed a permanent deal with the Stade Francis-Le Ble outfit and, after making 66 appearances in the league for the club, he moved to Ligue 1 side Metz. The defender scored three goals in 35 appearances for Les Grenats in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. His main position is centre-back, whilst his preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
