FC Vaduz vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 8 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Rheinpark Stadion (Vaduz).
FC Vaduz reached the second round of the qualifiers in their previous European campaign, where they were knocked out by Zalgiris with a 2-1 aggregate scoreline, over the two legs.
The squad also admitted defeat in their opening clash for the new domestic season, but have bounced back with a win and a draw in their last two matchups. Their previous clash at home saw them come out on top with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Schaffhausen.
Eintracht Frankfurt secured the win over Flora Tallinn in the previous round and are one of the front runners in the competition to go all the way. The visitors had an impressive run in the cup last time out, and are more than likely to breeze past FC Vaduz in their maiden clash this week.

FC Vaduz vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
The hosts have never made it past the qualifying stages of the tournament all these years, and have gone as far as the third qualifying round at the most.
The home team are in no way on par with Frankfurt, who competes in one of the toughest leagues across Europe every week. Additionally, the away side fared a lot better in European competitions, than in their domestic league, in their previous campaign and took down quite a few notable names in the process as well.
Given that the guests are also on a two-match unbeaten run in their last two outings, there can be little doubt as to Eintracht Frankfurt picking up the win on Thursday.
The German outfit have found the back of the net at least twice in each of their previous two trips on the road. However, the squad have not been at their defensive best in those games, and have been breached in both of those clashes.
Considering that the hosts have also netted a total of six goals in their last three home matchups, the clash between the sides is more than likely to be a high scoring one with over 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
