The Europa League’s two top scoring sides collide in the semi-finals in a contest that promises thrills and spills and the chance for Eintracht Frankfurt or Chelsea to take the initiative ahead of the second-leg.

Predictions

58 goals have been shared by Eintracht Frankfurt and Chelsea in the Europa League this season with 18 goals shared between Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud and Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic.

The promise of goals in this first leg at Eintracht’s Commerzbank-Arena is quite clear and Frankfurt have netted four goals at home in three of their Europa League home games this season.

Despite this, Chelsea are still favourites with relevant betting sites to not only qualify, but win this first leg in Germany.

Considering the Blues have not lost a Europa League game since April 2013 (a 15-game stretch) perhaps their favourite tag is justified but Frankfurt have proven that the Blues will have to work if they are to maintain that record.

The game is difficult to call as Eintracht are strong at home in the competition this season whilst the Blues are equally as strong on the road.

However, one thing we know will happen is plenty of goals with both sides continuing impressive Europa League records in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Betting Tips

Over 3.5 goals

We have already mentioned the scoring prowess of both of these sides with Chelsea netting six in their last two away European ties and Frankfurt scoring ten in their last four Europa League home games.

This makes backing over 3.5 goals one of the best bets with the popular sportsbooks when it comes to value in the Europa League last four. 

Luka Jovic to score anytime

Eintracht’s Jovic has been a hit this season and will be eager to celebrate his contract with the club by adding a ninth Europa League goal to his tally this season and third in four games.
