Barcelona vs Eintracht Frankfurt
UEFA Europa League
Date: 14 April 2022, Thursday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona will be hoping to produce a much better performance to the one they did seven days ago at Deutsche Bank Park as the Catalans play host to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League quarterfinal tie.
The Germans were a better outfits on the pitch last week on their soil, but Xavi’s men somehow stole the 1-1 draw thanks to the equalizer from Ferran Torres.
Barcelona are now huge favorites to advance to the semifinal with a win on the home court, especially if we take a look at the teams’ recent form.
Eitracht Frankfurt made it six straight outings without a victory on Sunday afternoon when they fell 1-2 at home to Freiburg.
The team led by Austrian manager Oliver Glasner dropped to the ninth position in the table as a consequence.
On the other side, we have Barcelona who now have nine wins and a draw in the previous ten Spanish La Liga games after a 2-3 victory at Levante on Sunday night.
Blaugrana showed a huge team spirit to come from behind and eventually find the late stoppage-time winner through substitute Luuk de Jong in Valencia.
The Catalans are indeed flying high under Xavi. They have also improved their defensive showings at home of late, shipping just one goal in the previous five matches at Camp Nou in all competitions.
Barcelona vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head-to-head
- Barcelona and Eintracht Frankfurt did not have a chance to take on each other before this quarterfinal tie.
- As mentioned above, the teams played a 1-1 stalemate in the first leg seven days ago in Frankfurt-am-Main.
- Frankfurt left a much better impression and certainly deserved a win on the occasion.
Barcelona vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Barcelona did not concede a goal in four successive home matches in all competitions. They won nine and drew one of the last ten domestic league outings.
Since Eintracht are winless in six subsequent fixtures across competitions, we will back the hosts to win to nil at the 2.50 odds here. You can also try with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (who was on target in the 2-3 win at Levante on Sunday) to score anytime for the hosts at the odds of 1.66.
