Eintracht vs Tottenham Prediction: Champions League

Two sides that appear to be fighting for second spot in Group D of the Champions League clash in Germany on Tuesday evening. Tottenham Hotspur and Eintracht Frankfurt both come into this fixture with three points on the board, and the winning team on Tuesday will sit second at the end of play.

Champions League Preview

When the draw for Group D was made, there was a feeling that Tottenham Hotspur should comfortably win the group. However, the pressure will be on Antonio Conte’s side if they fail to pick up maximum points on the road this week, as they will have a big challenge on their hand to qualify, let alone finish top of the standings.

Spurs come into this fixture sitting second in the standings, as they have won once and lost once in their opening two fixtures. During that run, they have scored twice and conceded twice. Tottenham would have been bitterly disappointed with their performance in the previous fixture that they played, as they were beaten 2-0 away from home by Sporting Lisbon. Both goals were scored by the Portuguese side in injury time.

Eintracht Frankfurt sit level on points with Tottenham coming into this fixture, but they remain third on goal difference. The German side has won once and lost once in their opening two fixtures. However, they have scored just one goal and have allowed three. 

Frankfurt’s wait for a first Champions League win came to an end in their previous fixture, as they edged to a 1-0 success against Marseille away from home. The only goal of the game was scored two minutes before the half time break, as Jesper Lindstrom broke the deadlock in the 43rd minute.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head

This is the first European meeting between these two sides since Tottenham won a Cup Winners’ Cup fixture between the sides in the 1981-82 season. Spurs also has a poor record against German opposition in the Champions League, as they have been beaten in their previous four matches.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction

There will be pressure on both teams in this fixture, as they look to enhance their chances of a top two finish in Group D. However, we can see it being a tight fixture with little between the sides, which means a draw may be the most likely outcome.
