Rocked by a humiliating 6-1 Bundesliga away loss to Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie.
A 1-1 draw in Germany means the hosts have a slight head start, especially considering they’ve restricted the Bundesliga outfit to just one shot on target in the first leg. Unbeaten in their last five competitive outings (W2, D3), the Blues come into this fixture off the back of a 3-0 Premier League home win over Watford, which was the first time they’ve kept a blank sheet after five straight games. What’s more, the Pensioners have won six of their last eight home encounters across all competitions (W6, D2), and five of those wins have been accompanied by a clean sheet. Furthermore, Maurizio Sarri’s men have netted over 2.5 match goals in all five of their previous Europa League home games, preventing their rivals from scoring three times in that period.
Meanwhile, the visitors are winless in their last four competitive matches (D3, L1), with all three of those draws featuring under 2.5 goals. Additionally, the Eagles have suffered two defeats on their previous three road trips across all competitions (D1, L2), conceding over 3.5 match goals in both failures. Still, before Eintracht’s drop-off in form, Launische Diva have put together four straight competitive road wins, conceding only one goal across those games. Moreover, Adi Hütter’s men have sustained just one loss in six EL away fixtures (W4, D1, L1), bagging 2+ match goals in five of those clashes.
