Eintracht Frankfurt vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions
- In their two Bundesliga matches, Eintracht scored eight goals.
- Sporting has conceded at least 2 goals in 3 of their 5 competitive games this season.
- In his last four appearances, Daichi Kamada scored three goals.
Sporting will get a boost from the Bundesliga’s buzzing hosts
Sporting Lisbon’s defense will be tested to the limit when they face Eintracht Frankfurt in their Champions League debut on Wednesday. Deutsche Bank Park will host a memorable fixture that will see the Europa League winners as well as Group D seeds begin their campaign.
Oliver Glasner’s team are coming off a 4-0 win over RB Leipzig. This was their largest Bundesliga win since the coach took office. It also followed a four-goal performance at Werder Bremen. They are confident and could easily take Sporting to task if they continue to play well.
In domestic company, the Lions’ personality has changed significantly over the last year. They are not as secure defensively now. Ruben Amorim’s team never looked as secure at Champions League level, losing five to Manchester City and Ajax last term.
Kamada sabotaging Kolo Muani’s supply
Sporting managed just one clean sheet last year in six group games. This game will likely see them lose to Eintracht’s mobile attack, which is full of ideas and mobility. Randal Kolo Muani, the summer signing, is a brilliant focal point and goal-maker. Daichi Kamada is also able to play off him.
According to reports, the Japanese star was set to join Sporting’s Lisbon rivals Benfica, but he changed his mind last week. He has now scored three goals in four appearances, and another goal was disallowed at the weekend. At around 100/30, he is a huge value for any time goalscorer.
Sporting must be at their best to win this game. Eintracht is still susceptible at the back, so Sporting needs to be at its best. There are a few players who will fill in for the hosts in their position. They conceded 11 goals in the first four rounds before they won the Bundesliga on Saturday. This is why over 1.5 Frankfurt goals are preferred to hosts’ similar win price and a 2-1 Eintracht triumph selected in correct score betting.
