Inter Milan vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions and betting tips for this Thursday’s Europa League clash on March 14th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
The first leg surprisingly ended goalless, with Milan missing a first half penalty. They could pay a hefty price for that profligacy, and with a depleted XI here, they cannot afford to concede. It’s a quick turnaround for Frankfurt, who eased to victory on Monday night at Dusseldorf. The Eagles have been brilliant on the road this season, and they’ve already won in Italy this season. Frankfurt may be able to squeeze through to the quarter-finals here. See our Inter Milan vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions below.
Inter are in a precarious situation here. Many punters will be backing them to win inside 90 minutes here, but they will feel as though last week was a missed opportunity. The Italians missed a penalty, and couldn’t find a way through in Germany, and clocked up a couple of potentially costly suspensions in the process. Lautaro Martinez will have to sit this one out, alongside Kwame Asamoah. Inter have a decent sized squad, but there are also doubts over Marcelo Brozovic, who hobbled off at the weekend, whilst Mauro Icardi and Radja Nainggolan remain on the sidelines. Inter have been in good form recently, but it won’t be easy to get past Frankfurt’s back-line. The Bundesliga outfit are unbeaten since December 22nd (vs Bayern), and are the joint-highest scorers in the Europa League (with Sevilla) this season. They also have one of the most in-form forward lines in Europe, and they could welcome Ante Rebic back from injury here. He is likely to play some part in this game. Frankfurt will know that an away goal will put them in the driving seat, whilst simultaneously agitating the home crowd at the San Siro. The dynamics of the away goals rule give Frankfurt a great chance of qualifying, and that looks like a decent way of approaching this one. Frankfurt to Qualify is the first of our Europa League betting tips for Thursday.
Eintracht Frankfurt have plundered many goals in this competition so far, and they have one of the most in-form strikers in Europe – Luka Jovic. I can forsee Frankfurt getting on the scoresheet here, whilst Inter will also know the importance of securing the opening goal of the game. We saw a goalless draw in their previous leg, which was somewhat surprising, but Frankfurt’s games have been more entertaining on the road this season. Both teams are handy in attack, but defences should not be underrated either. The best option looks to be 2-3 Goals Exactly in this match, and it’s available at an odds-against price. It is the second of our Inter Milan vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions for Thursday night.
Sebastian Haller helped secured the victory on Monday night, but the star of the show this season has been Luka Jovic. He’s netted 21 goals in all competitions this campaign, and hasn’t been afraid to net against some of the bigger teams in the Europa League this year. He had four shots in the first leg of this game, and he is likely to be full of confidence once again. Frankfurt are unbeaten in 13 away games, and they should be able to create plenty of chances in this encounter. Luka Jovic to Score Anytime is the third of our Europa League betting tips.
Inter Milan have been priced up at 11/8 to win inside 90 minutes. They have been in good form recently, and will be popular with punters here. The draw, which is 12/5 could be enough to send Frankfurt through to the next round (1-1 or above) whilst the German side are currently priced at 23/10 to make it back-to-back away wins inside four days.
Goals were expected in the first leg, but unfortunately, they failed to arrive. There were plenty of chances throughout the 90 minutes, and it’s 4/6 for Both Teams to Score in this second leg.
With Mauro Icard and Lautaro Martinez out of the equation, it has left two Frankfurt players at the top of the betting. Sebastian Haller is priced at 13/2 to net the first of the match, whilst team-mate Luka Jovic is available at 11/2. The returning Ante Rebic may have to settle for a place on the bench, and can be backed at 17/2.
