The Eagles finished 11th in the Bundesliga, with 42 points from 34 games. They scored 45 goals and conceded 49. The Red and White have already made a bid for the European Cup in March, with the result that they have failed to win the domestic championship for 10 games in a row. Last Saturday, the Frankfurt club sealed a 2-2 home draw with Mainz, before that, too, with Borussia M (1-1).
But the real surprise for football fans was the Germans’ performance in the Europa League. After beating Betis and Barcelona in the semi-finals, they also managed to edge out a tough West Ham side. The Japanese forward Daiichi Kamada is the team’s top scorer in this competition, with five goals under his belt. Midfielder Jesper Lindström and centre-back Martin Hinteregger are also out injured.
Steven Gerrard departed for Birmingham and was replaced by a Dutchman, Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Under the new coach, the Glasgow side finished second in the domestic standings, 4 points behind Celtic. Having scored 80 goals and conceded 31, the Scots are now in a good frame of mind, having made it four wins in a row. Last Saturday, the Bilo-Syni defeated Harts 2-1 away.
The capital city finished second in the group with Lyon, Sparta and Brennby, who qualified for the tournament’s play-offs. Borussia Dortmund, Crvena Zvezda, Braga and Leipzig were then passed in turn. The Bilo-Syni are joined by current Europa League top scorer James Tavernier (7 goals). Yannis Hadji, Nelson Ofobor, Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe are injured.
The teams have never met each other in official games.
Eintracht vs Rangers
It’s hard to predict the winner of this encounter, because the opponents are of similar level and the game will be, as they say, on three results. But we can safely say: We’re in for a productive encounter. The Germans will take to the pitch without their starting centre-back Hinteregger, forcing Oliver Glasner to focus on attacking moves. The Eagles have a dazzling array of players capable of single-handedly deciding the outcome of any match (Kostic, Kamada, Borre). The Scots will be on the counter attack and are more than capable of scoring at least once, as they have done in all previous stages of the tournament. Our prediction is that both sides will score.
