Tournament: Europa League. ¼ final
The return leg of the ¼ final of the Europa League will be held between Eintracht vs Benfica. Eintracht will try to restore its reputation after the away match loss with the score 2:4.
In the first match on estádio da Luz Eintracht was rather unstable but it has managed to score two goals having shown great attacking abilities and disclosed the mistakes in rivals’ defense.
This may allow them to hope at least to hang on the game in the home match and try to get into the semifinal. This will become a real success for them.
After amazing home match the Portuguese could feel comfortable but they have missed the second goal. But even such advantage will let them play from defense and try to catch the rival on counter attack.
Also they have a right to make a mistake. Situation seems to be ideal but similar match against Dinamo Zagreb (0:1) last round has shown that Benfica has some problems during away matches.
Benfica has some problems in scoring the goals this play-off stage (no goal was scored in match with Sevilla and two were scored in a match against Galatasaray – one was a penalty shot).
We can wait for actions from both sides. Eintracht is rather aggressive on home ground and rarely leaves the field without scored goal.
But when the German team needs to attack it frequently let the rival to run into counter attack.
