Match preview

How will UEFA Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt fare in Europe’s premier club competition?

May’s penalty shootout victory over Rangers in Seville saw Frankfurt lift the UEFA Cup for the second time, 42 years after their first.

So, remarkably, this’ll be the Eagles’ first match in this competition since losing the European Cup Final of 1960 to Real Madrid 7-3 at Hampden.

Their Champions League return has certainly been a long time in the making, so Deutsche Bank Park will be bouncing for sure.

Sporting CP meanwhile reached the round of 16 in this competition last year, ousting Borussia Dortmund en route.

Despite failing to retain their Primeira Liga title, a second place finish was enough to see the Green and Whites qualify for the group phase in back-to-back seasons for just the third time ever.

However, last season was the first time since 2008/09 Sporting have reached the Champions League knockouts, but Rúben Amorim’s team come into this campaign full of optimism.

On Friday night, Jeremiah St. Juste and Marcus Edwards were on target in a 2-0 victory over Estoril Praia.

Leões though had actually lost successive games before this, including a top of the table 3-0 hammering by FC Porto.

Frankfurt meantime impressively beat RB Leipzig on Saturday, so have won consecutive games following a tricky start.

Now, will Oliver Glasner’s Europa League winners kick off with three points in the Champions League?
