Eintracht Frankfurt vs Union St Gilloise

, KO: 20:00 Feb 22, 2024, Deutsche Bank Park
Union St Gilloise

Eintracht Frankfurt host Union St Gilloise in their Europa Conference League playoff second leg with the clash perfectly posed after a 2-2 draw in the first meeting. Another close encounter could be on the cards, although the Germans will fancy their chances of completing the job in front of their fans.

Eintracht Frankfurt will be disappointed not to have seen out the win in Belgium after racing to an early lead. They were two goals up within 10 minutes thanks to efforts from Fares Chaibi and Sasa Kalajdzic but were pegged back by their hosts.

The result is part of a recent run of draws for Eintracht Frankfurt, who have been held in their last three matches. They head into Thursday’s clash off the back of a 3-3 draw with Freiburg in a Bundesliga fixture last weekend.

Despite the run of draws, Eintracht Frankfurt will be feeling confident ahead of the visit of Union St Gilloise having done some good work at Deutsche Bank Park lately. Dino Topmoller’s men are unbeaten in four of their last five home matches, claiming three wins in that run, including a 5-1 victory over Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Union St Gilloise showed great character to fight back from two goals down to earn the draw in the first leg. Mathias Rasmussen had pulled one back before the break while Hakan Nilsson netted the equaliser in the second half.

Like Eintracht Frankfurt, Union St Gilloise have also been plagued by draws lately having been held in two of their last three matches. However Alexander Blessin will travel to Germany off the back of a 3-1 victory over Kortrijk in a domestic fixture last weekend.

Union St Gilloise have also been a bit erratic on their travels with two wins from their last five matches. They also failed to win or score in any of their away fixtures during the group stage of the Europa League before dropping to the Conference League.

Eintracht Frankfurt have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at 11/10 with Coral. A victory for Union St Gilloise is valued at 13/5 with Paddy Power while William Hill is offering odds of 4/2 for a draw.
