Spanish giants Barcelona are all set to welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to play the second leg of the quarterfinals in the ongoing Europa League.
Despite Barcelona starting as the favorite for most football betting sites, it was Eintracht that earned an early advantage at the Deutsche Bank Park. Ansgar Knauff converted a wide corner into a half volley and fired it past Ter Stegen. The hosts then had multiple chances of extending their lead but failed to convert many chances. Then, in the 66th minute, brilliant teamwork by Ousmane Dembele, Frenkie de Jong, and Ferran Torres saw the scores equalize.
Despite Frankfurt playing with just 10 players, Barcelona lacked the ruthlessness to score again, and the score remained level at the final whistle.
From Frankfurt, the Catalan club traveled to Valencia for its domestic fixture and returned to winning ways, beating Levante by a 3-2 margin. With that victory, Barcelona is now unbeaten in its last 15 games across competitions. After a forgettable start to the season with Ronald Koeman, Barcelona has played extremely well in the recent weeks under Xavi, and as a result, has moved up the points table in the La Liga too.
With 8 matches still to be played, Barcelona is currently in the 2nd spot, trailing the leaders Real Madrid, who has played 1 game extra, by 12 points.
After playing 4 consecutive games in the Bundesliga, and 7 consecutive games across competitions without a loss, Frankfurt will be disappointed with its latest effort against Freiburg. After conceding a goal in the first half, Frankfurt managed to equalize in the 54th minute, only to concede for a 2nd time in the 69th minute. With this loss, Frankfurt is now in the 9th spot on the Bundesliga table, and in real danger of falling down into the bottom half of the table.
Match prediction and football betting tips for F. C. Barcelona vs Eintracht Frankfurt Europa League Quarterfinal 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Camp Nou Stadium, Barcelona, on 14th April 2022.
Barcelona will be desperate to collect at least one trophy this season and are expected to play an attacking formation. However, Xavi’s options are crippled due to injuries within the squad. Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti, Sergino Dest, and Ansu Fati are all expected to miss this fixture, while Dani Alves is unavailable. Memphis Depay and Clement Lenglet are expected to make a comeback, along with Pedri.
As for the visitors, Tuta was sent off in the last game after being shown a red card and won’t be available, while Diant Ramaj, Christopher Lenz, and Djibril Sow are in the infirmary.
Despite multiple injury concerns, we expect the hosts to power through this one.
Bet on a Barcelona win.
2 of the last 3 away games for Frankfurt have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored, while the same has been the case with 2 out of 4 home games for Barcelona across competitions. We expect a high-scoring game with more than 2.5 goals being scored between teams that have played an attacking brand of football this entire season.
Frankfurt has scored at least one goal in each of its games in the Europa League, while Barcelona has scored in its last 6 consecutive games across competitions. It is therefore easy to recommend a bet on both teams to score. You should take into account that the enormity of the occasion can sometimes force the teams to be a bit more cautious.
