Eintracht Frankfurt and Sporting Lisbon face off on Wednesday in a Group D UEFA Champions League at Deutsche Bank Park.
Eintracht Frankfurt comes into this game sitting in 10th place in the Bundesliga standings having picked up eight points. They have had two wins, two draws, and one loss. In the last game against RB Leipzig, the offense scored four goals and that was enough to secure the victory. They only had 43 percent of the possession, but they had nine shots and didn’t allow any shots. Sebastian Rode had to leave the last game early, and it’s unclear if he is going to be able to go in this game. Outside of that, though, there aren’t expected to be any changes. Daichi Kamada has scored three goals and added an assist.
On the other side of this matchup is Sporting Lisbon, who currently sits in 9th place in the Primeira Liga having picked up seven points. Sporting’s last game came against Estoril Praia, and they were able to win that game 2-0. Sporting had 64 percent of the possession and four shots on goal, and that was enough to secure the victory. Sporting has scored eight goals this season, while the defense has given up eight goals. Pedro Gonçalves has been the top player, scoring three goals and adding two assists. They really aren’t dealing with many injuries, and this could be the same squad that won their last game.
I expect this game to be higher scoring. Sporting has been scoring points, but their defense has been an issue, and that is going to happen again here. Look for Sporting to score at least one goal, but their defense is going to give up two or three goals, and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash.
