Eintracht Frankfurt take on the visitors Sportingin the round 1 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, September 7th at Deutsche Bank Park (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt managed to break into the Champions League through the "back door". The Eagles, in the last Bundesliga draw, instead of the expected progress, on the contrary, quite noticeably declined, finishing outside the top 10 of the 2021/2022 final league table. But Oliver Glasner and his men had a serious excuse: they focused their attention and efforts on the European Cup. In the end, it justified themselves, because, having beaten the Rangers in the final, the Germans won the Europa League - and with it a pass to the main tournament of the continent. But even now, Eintracht shows statistics on the domestic arena at the average level. And in the UEFA Super Cup, they lost without much chance to Real Madrid 0-2.

Sporting Lisbon could not keep the status of the leader in Portugal. The Lions won gold in 2021, their first since 2002. An excellent result of the work of Ruben Amorim. But it was not possible to keep the 1st place: in the 2021/2022 race in Primeira, Porto turned out to be stronger (but they won the League Cup again). But it turned out to get out of the group in the last Champions League - but already in the 1/8 finals there the Portuguese ran into Manchester City ... The new draw did not start in the best way. And the “dragons” lost on the road, and devastatingly, 0-3. But there were other losses of points, which definitely does not cheer up the coaching staff and the players. It is all the more important to prove themselves in the Champions League, fortunately, one should not complain about the lot: yes, there is Tottenham, a clear favorite, but both Eintracht and Marseille can and should be fought.
Eintracht Frankfurt do not belong to the regulars of European competitions, and even more so are not familiar with the Champions League. So he will play against Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday for the first time in his history. Eintracht and Sporting are not giants, but both are well aware of what a good chance to prove themselves in the Champions League in such a quartet. We recommend betting on spectacular "total over 2.5 goals"
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
