Match Preview

  • Three consecutive home wins by at least a two-goal margin – all of which saw over 1.5 second-half goals for Eintracht Frankfurt – sets the German outfit up nicely to build on their impressive UEFA Europa League (UEL) home record (W13, D3, L2).
  • Expect an entertaining game, as five of Frankfurt’s six UEL group stage fixtures witnessed over 2.5 goals, as have nine of their last ten competitive victories. However, with their previous six competitive games that didn’t end level seeing the team that netted first go on to win, Frankfurt will be eager to score first for a fifth straight home game.
  • RB Salzburg have hit a rough patch of form with just one win from their previous four competitive games (D1, L2). The first goal will likely be important for the Austrian champions too, considering the last four games in which they conceded first they failed to win (D2, L2).
  • However, the visitors have scored an impressive 2.67 goals per European away game this term, netting at least once before half-time in all three matches (W1, D1, L1). In fact, Salzburg have scored in 23 straight away games in all competitions, netting at least three goals in six of their last ten road trips.
  • Players to watch: Frankfurt’s goalscoring defender Martin Hinteregger has grabbed four of his last six competitive goals after the 60th minute – one of those was at home in this tournament.
  • Hee-Chan Hwang has scored nine goals for Salzburg this term – five were netted from the 20th to the 40th minute.
  • Stat attack: There’s been at least one goal after the 85th minute in Frankfurt’s last four home games.
  • Salzburg’s last five away matches saw at least one goal after the 75th minute.
  • Frankfurt’s last five competitive draws, and Salzburg’s last eight, all saw both teams score.
