Eintracht Frankfurt vs Lazio
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 4th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Commerzbank Arena (Frankfurt).
It’s always good to see Eintracht Frankfurt back in European competition after becoming one of the historical European football teams of the early 1960’s and they have quite a game on their hands when they take on Serie A team Lazio in the Europa League in this Group H match.
Eintracht were not expected to win their first game when they had to play Marseille in their opening match but they surprised the French Ligue 1 team to win 2-1 at the Stade Velodrome it what was seen as a shock.
Lazio beat Apollon Limassol possibly the weakest side in the group as expected but they made heavy weather of it to only win the game 2-1. This should be a very tough game for both teams. However the bookmakers see the match as Eintracht just being the favorites to win this one and because it is so close there is great value to be had.

There are no previous matches between the two teams on record.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Lazio: Prediction
Frankfurt have struggled for form in the Bundesliga and have only won one game so far from the three they have played although that was in their last game and was a great 4-1 win over Hannover.
The bottom line is that the team look fresh and different in this competition and they are really an unknown quantity which makes them dangerous. Being at home on a European night this could be the perfect match up for them and based on that we will back them to win this game.
Lazio will play their part too and we expect them to score but this is a tough away game in Germany for them and they will earn most of their points at home in this group.
