Betting tips & odds comparison 05.05.2022 Eintracht Frankfurt - West Ham United FC
Betting Tip for matchday 2 of the 2021/2022 Europa League between Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham United FC. The game will be played at Deutsche Bank Park (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) on 05.05.2022 at 21:00.
Frankfurt, with a 2-1 first leg advantage, take on West Ham in Thursday’s Europa League second leg Semi Final. After getting past almighty Barcelona in the last round, the German side will look to protect any chance of winning a first European title since 1979/80 season when they beat Borussia Monchengladbach.
For West Ham, a top four finish seem to be unrealistic at the moment meaning the only possible route to Europe is by winning this title. To make this happen, the Hammers must overturn a 2-1 deficit here.
With away goals out of the picture and both teams yearning for European success, this tie has drama, thrills and intrigues written all over it. To give you the best betting strategy, our forecast will be taken from Melbet and Nairabet.
Frankfurt head into this crucial fixture on the back of just 2 wins in the last 12 in all competitions. This means despite what looks like a poor domestic run, they have managed to navigate their European games successfully.
The 2 wins in the last 12 game away at Barca and West Ham respectively. With 40 points in 32 bundesliga games, Frankfurt are 11th on the log. This means their only chance of playing elite European football Club competition is to win this tournament.
Although, holding a 2-1 first leg advantage doesn’t guarantee anything yet, Frankfurt will draw confidence from the fact that they have progressed from 22 of their previous 25 two-legged affairs after winning the first leg.
In this tie, they will hope to wrap things up and avoid a repeat of 2018/19 season when they lost out to Mauricio Sarri’s Chelsea.
This PL season’s top four battle is, to say the least, a highly contentious one. David Moyes’s men are currently 7th, 11 points off the top four. This means the Hammers’ ticket to Europe relies heavily on how their Europa run pans out.
Meanwhile this is a tricky fixture in that before this season only 4 out of 17 teams have qualified for the next stage of this tournament after losing the first leg.
In addition, Frankfurt have lost just one Semi Final game on home turf (a 3-0 loss to Bauer Leverkusen in 92/93 DFB Pokal.)
The Hammers’ task becomes more complicated by the fact that they have lost their last 3 games in a row. However, they got to this stage by beating Lyon 3-0 away after a 1-1 first leg draw. This means a win in Germany is mathematically possible for Moyes’ men.
