Time: KO 17:30
Venue:Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin)

Following a sensational Europa League triumph against Barcelona, Eintracht Frankfurt returns to Bundesliga action when they take on a hard-to-beat Union at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei. 

Written off by many ahead of the second leg, Eintracht pulled off a stunning 3:2 win in the Camp Nou on Thursday to book their place against West Ham in the semi-finals and morale will surely be high in the Frankfurt camp ahead of this tough-looking Bundesliga fixture. 

Domestically, Eintracht have been in poor form though, losing 4 and winning just 2 of their last 8 Bundesliga matches however they have performed better on the road with 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 6 away matches.

Union enter this fixture currently 5 points ahead of thee visitors and having had a free midweek, will be keen to take advantage of what is sure to be a somewhat fatigued Frankfurt side who now seem to be saving their best performances for the Europa League. 

The hosts have an excellent record at this venue, losing only 2 of their last 30 home league matches with those defeats coming against heavyweight opponents in the shape of champions Bayern Munich and second-placed Borussia Dortmund. 

Recent meetings between these sides suggest that goals could be on the cards with each of their last 5 Bundesliga meetings seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored including a 3:3 draw when these sides last met at this venue in November 2020. More recently, Eintracht scored a narrow 2:1 in Frankfurt back in November.

A tough fixture to call, much depends on how much mental and physical energy the visitors have left following that remarkable win in Spain on Thursday while Union´s home record suggests the hosts will be confident of taking at least a point. 

Ultimately, we expect both are capable of scoring but with Union always reliable at home, we fancy the hosts to get the better of another decent contest between two evenly matched sides with Frankfurt´s likely fatigue a deciding factor.

Final score 2:1
