Eintracht Frankfurt vs Inter Milan: Prediction
On top of a marvellous Europa League form, Eintracht enjoyed their time in domestic affairs after the winter break as well. They won three on spin in all competitions bagging as many as ten goals in the process. Their latest victims were top-half rivals Hoffenheim as the Eagles clinched a 3-2 victory on Saturday afternoon to get just three points shy of 4th-placed Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga ladder.
The story is fairly opposite with Inter Milan who have been vulnerable defensively of late. The visitors dropped down to forth in the Serie A standings after a disappointing 2-1 defeat against league strugglers Cagliari on Friday evening. Inter shipped five goals in last two league outings (a 3-3 draw to Fiorentina away at Stadio Artemio Franchi beforehand).
Eintracht should have plenty of space going forward and we can hardly see anything other but the home win as the outcome here.
