Frankfurt vs Marseille: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Thursday, November 29th, 2018, 10:00pm
Commerzbank Arena Frankfurt Am Main
Adi Hütter continues to wave is magic wand at Eintracht as the Germans target a fifth win from five in the Europa League this season.
With qualification assured, one may be forgiven for thinking Eintracht Frankfurt would take their foot off the gas somewhat for this match but say that to manager Adi Hütter and he may quickly fall out with you.
Hütter only joined Frankfurt in July but has turned the Eagles into the surprise package in the Bundesliga and Europe with win after win.
The same cannot be said for their opponents Marseille who despite a solid showing domestically, have failed miserably on the European stage this season.
That is despite reaching last season’s final but just one point is a poor return from a group they would have expected to have progressed from and with no chance of qualification, one has to wonder the motivation Rudi Garcia’s men will have for this trip to Germany with much more important Ligue 1 games coming up.
To compile more misery onto Marseille, Frankfurt has won all three previous games against French sides at the Commerzbank-Arena and the prediction is that will stretch to four from four.
Eintracht has won ten of their last 11 in all competitions and netted three goals in each of their last four games making a 3-1 score line the best prediction for this game.
- Over 3.5 goals
Frankfurt are on fire and you have to go back to the 28th October for the last time they failed to net three goals in a game.
Marseille has also netted six goals in their last three so are good for at least a single away goal.
- Eintracht to win and both teams to score
This is the best way to get value from the inevitable home win.
We have already highlighted both teams scoring ability above, but Eintracht are also on an eleven-game unbeaten run having won ten of those games.
