Eintracht Frankfurt vs Sporting CP betting tips: Champions League preview, predictions & odds

Holding Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt look to start on the front foot in Germany on the back of strong recent domestic form against an inconsistent Portuguese giants Sporting CP



Match Preview & Prediction

Holding Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt have come a long way since match day one in the Bundesliga this season after they were annihilated in a 6-1 home defeat against German champions Bayern Munich at Deutsche Bank Park, with many feeling as though it was a sign of things to come this season for Die Adler.

But Oliver Glasner’s men have bounced back strongly in the weeks since, securing eight points from a possible twelve and avoiding defeat along the way (2-2-0) despite the loss of key man Filip Kostic who swapped Frankfurt for Turin in his summer move to Juventus.

The summer additions of former German wunderkind Mario Götze, as well as Argentine forward Lucas Alario, offer additional firepower and creativity to replace Kostic and have already hit the ground running for their new side while potentially chomping at the bit when they square off against a Sporting CP outfit that has stumbled out of the blocks in the Primeira Liga in 2022-23.

Leões are already eight points off table-topping rivals SL Benfica while sitting in mid-table with just two wins in their opening five fixtures which included a shock 2-0 home loss against G.D. Chaves as well as a heavy 3-0 defeat against FC Porto.

The absences of both Paulinho, as well as Daniel Bragança, are poorly times for Sporting boss Rúben Amorim, but he still has considerable firepower at his disposal, making an away win a decent possibility when the two sides are stacked against one another.

Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt 1-2 Sporting CP
