Although the Frankfurt-based Eintracht has plowed through the international business with conviction and bravery for a few weeks and months now, it still reads a bit surreal that, in addition to highly prominent teams like Arsenal, Chelsea or Valencia, the fourth semi-finalist of this year’s Europa League Season comes from the financial metropolis of the Main. The European Cup fairy tale of Adi Hütter’s team is now entering a new round on Thursday evening and with Chelsea FC waiting no one less than a former Champions League and Europa League winner on the surprise team from the Bundesliga. Consequently, between Frankfurt and Chelsea before the first leg lower odds on a final entry of the English are offered.
Football Betting Tips Frankfurt vs Chelsea
However, it is also a fact that the SGE does not have to hide from Europe’s “second league” after the previous competition and successful matches against Benfica Lisbon, Inter Milan, Schachtjor Donetsk, Lazio Roma or Olympique Marseille. With the sensational backdrop behind them, the Hessians want to ensure a good result in order to save the chances of getting ahead. Because in the eagerly awaited duel Frankfurt vs Chelsea’s prediction on the outcome of the game is certainly associated with greater risks, it might make more sense to examine the alternative Tor markets more closely. Statistically, on Thursday evening from 21:00 clock in the Commerzbank Arena namely one or the other expected results, after all, meets the second best Europa League offensive (Frankfurt, 28 goals) on the best (Chelsea, 30 goals).
Frankfurt – Statistics & Current Form
It has been 39 years since Eintracht Frankfurt beat Borussia Mönchengladbach as the UEFA Cup winner in the purely German final. Nearly four decades later, the enthusiastic supporters of the SBU dream of a repeat of this coup. The team of coach Adi Hütter has made it to the semifinals of the UEFA Europa League, with two hot matches against Chelsea FC. The impressive run at European level, however, must be classified under the category “highly deserved”, because who throws on the way to the semi-final round, among other international heavyweights such as Inter Milan, Benfica Lisbon or Lazio Roma, has provided sufficient arguments to to be allowed to compete in the semi-final first leg against the probably most famous remaining competitors with a broad chest.
One of the reasons why it may be worthwhile on Thursday evening to give a tip on the home side in the game Frankfurt – Chelsea, are the fans who not only support their adulterers, but with choreos, songs and a lot of confidence to push for absolute peak performance.
“We are just before the final. We are all working towards a sensation. ” – Bruno Hübner
No wonder that the men from the Main metropolis are unbeaten at home in the current Europa League season and won five of the six matches in the Commerzbank Arena. Only against Inter Milan ended the home game scoreless. All in all, Ante Rebic, Luka Jovic and Co. are still 16 goals in front of home crowd and almost three hits per game. With a total of 28 goals in 12 matches, of which, incidentally, only one lost (2: 4 at Benfica Lisbon), the Eintracht also represents the second best offensive of the competition. Only Chelsea Football Club was even more likely to cheer than the Bundesliga club.
Speaking of the Bundesliga. In everyday business, the Hütter protected had recently unfamiliar problems. In three consecutive games at home against Augsburg (1: 3), in Wolfsburg (1: 1) and against Hertha BSC (0: 0) jumped out only two points, so that it missed the Hesse, in the fight for the last Champions League Rank to shoot a small lead. Although the Adlerträger continue to occupy the required fourth place, but wait on the final three matchdays even complicated opponents such as Bayer Leverkusen or Bayern, for which it is also about reaching the goal of the season. Even if the SGE recently made a physically and mentally tired impression, it is undeniable that the former master coach of the Young Boys from Bern, Adi Hütter, in cooperation with the sold-out Commerzbank Arena will ensure that the black-and-red-whites in the biggest game of recent club history to bring their full potential on the field. Nonetheless, between Frankfurt and Chelsea, our prediction tends to target a fairly high number of goals (over 2.5). The surprise team from the financial capital must continue to do without the injured top striker Sebastien Haller. In addition, the yellow-locked Ante Rebic will not be available in the first leg. There should not be a lack of offensive power, especially with Jovic, Paciencia, Kostic, Gacinovic or, more recently, Sebastian Rode, who will be scoring more goal-scoring players.
Expected formation of Frankfurt:
↪ Trapp; Ndicka, Hinteregger, Hasebe; Costa, Rode, Fernandes, Kostic; Gaćinović; Jovic, Paciencia
Last matches from Frankfurt:

Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
Did you know that Chelsea FC have a wife on the post of sports director? Marina Granovskaia is a close confidant of owner Roman Abramovich and is therefore not in vain considered the most powerful lady of European football. In 2014, the Russian was once negotiating partner of Bruno Hübner and the Frankfurt Eintracht. At that time it was about the supplementary players Lucas Piazon and Michael Hector, who were lent to the Bundesliga for relatively small money. On Thursday evening, the Hesse will no longer be the submissive negotiating partner, but the Europa League semi-final opponent on equal terms. That between Frankfurt and Chelsea the favorite role according to the odds goes on the island, should not be a big surprise, especially since the “Blues” in the past, among other things, the Champions League or the Europa League won and qualitatively, of course, are quite different from the Eintracht ,
In the course of the UEFA Europa League season 2018/2019 so far, Londoners have not really been able to beat any team. In the twelve matches, the team of coach Maurizio Sarri celebrated eleven victories and a draw. In the knockout round, the Blues stand even in six successes in six matches. Four of these six games were even played to zero. The defensive was not beyond doubt, however, as the quarter-final second leg against Slavia Prague proved as Eden Hazard and Co. struggled 4: 3. Certainly, the impressions from this open exchange are an indication that on Thursday between Frankfurt and Chelsea give a tip on at least three goals in the Commerzbank Arena.
“Frankfurt is a great team with a wonderful striker Luka Jovic” – Maurizio Sarri
This is logically not only due to the sometimes vulnerable defensive, but also on the outstanding offensive. No other team scored more goals in the competition than Chelsea (30). In all twelve games Chelsea hit at least once; away even twice on average.
In the Premier League it ran for the capital club last – similar to Eintracht Frankfurt – not optimal. Out of the two appearances in Liverpool and Manchester United, the blues scored only one point overall. At home against Burnley, the team of the still controversial coach Maurizio Sarri had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Despite this, the former Englishman is in pole position in the battle for fourth place two games before the end of the season, which – as in Germany – is entitled to participate in the Champions League group stage. Perhaps this is not necessary, because even with a Europa League triumph in late May in Baku, the champion would have solved his ticket for the premier class. Antonio Rüdiger and Bayern wish-list player Callum Hudson Odoi have to pass due to injury.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
↪ Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Palmieri; Edge, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Giroud, Hazard
Last matches of Chelsea:
⚽️ 28.04.2019 – Manchester United Vs. Chelsea 1: 1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 22.04.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Burnley 2: 2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 18.04.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Slavia Prague 4: 3 (Europa League)
⚽️ 14.04.2019 – Liverpool Vs. Chelsea 2: 0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 11.04.2019 – Slavia Prague vs. Chelsea 0: 1 (Europa League)

Chelsea’s record against German teams is ten wins, five draws and four failures. The yield in Germany is negative (3-2-4).
Frankfurt vs Chelsea Our Best Betting Tips Explained
Even if Eintracht Frankfurt and Chelsea FC have similar starting positions in the fight for the Champions League in their home leagues just a few days before the end of the season, there can not be two opinions that the Englishmen should have a clear advantage in terms of quality. Maurizio Sarri’s side have won eleven out of twelve UEFA Europa League games so far, with the campaign’s best offense scoring 30 goals. In the six away games alone, the Blues scored two goals on average, which is why we assume on Thursday evening in the semi-final first leg once again that the deluxe offensive will strike at Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and Co. In the match Frankfurt vs. Chelsea could therefore be the odds on one or the other goal ultimately crowned with success.

Should we in the meeting Frankfurt vs Chelsea predicting which team will leave the field as winners, our choice would probably also fall on the guests. This is partly because the Eintracht last looked tired in the Bundesliga and on the other hand with Rebic and Haller on two of the three top strikers must do without. Whether the enthusiastic audience can compensate for these negative influences has to be awaited. Of course, the courageous Hütter-Elf can still credit their own goals, which is why we decide to score over 2.5 goals between Frankfurt and Chelsea.
