      Tip Reasoning

      • Eintracht Frankfurt finished second in Group F, qualifying ahead of Standard Liege by one point.
      • Salzburg dropped into the Europa League following their Champions League exit.
      • Frankfurt scored eight times in six matches but conceded 10 in the same period.
      • Salzburg scored 16 goals in an incredible campaign but conceded 13.

      Can the German side power to a positive result?

      Eintracht Frankfurt have had a mediocre season, currently sitting in midtable in the Bundesliga whilst only just scraping through Group F after a lacklustre couple of result against Standard Liege and Guimaraes, meaning the qualification was a lot harder than it should’ve been.

      The German side have scored eight goals in their Europa League campaign this season, an average of 1.33 per game but have conceded 10 with their defensive record letting them down a little. They’ll need to improve rapidly however as they come up against a free scoring Austrian side in the first knockout round.

      Will key losses in the transfer market change the Salzburg perception?

      This season has been a great one for Salzburg with their Champions League campaign catching eyes across Europe. Liverpool signed their midfielder Minamino whilst Braun Haaland is lighting up the Bundesliga following his move to Dortmund. Those two were key players for Jesse Marsch and he’ll be hoping the rest of his squad will have enough to progress deeper into the competition.

      Salzburg scored 16 goals in the Champions League this season but 10 of those came from Haaland or Minamino leaving a big gap in the final third for the Austrians. Their defence hasn’t been great in Europe this season either with an average of 2.16 goals conceded per match in their campaign so far.

      Can either side hold the advantage for the second leg?

      This game looks to be one of the more exciting ones in the first knockout round this season as both sides have lots of questions to be answered across the pitch. We see this match being really open despite it being the first leg and we’re backing both teams to score as they look for the edge going into the second leg in Austria.

      The score should be a fairly tight one though with neither side really excelling this season and having a big hold over the other. With that in mind we think a stalemate could be on the cards in this match and are predicting a 1-1 score, leaving everything to play for in Salzburg in a couple of weeks.
