Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
Eintracht Frankfurt are currently 6th in the league and have won four of their last five league games. The likes of Daichi Kamada and Randal Kolo Muani have started the season well for the Bundesliga side and will hope to transfer their league form to the continental stage.
They are currently 3rd in their Champions League group and have won one game so far. With Sporting CP doing well and Tottenham Hotspur the favorites to top the group, Eintracht Frankfurt will have to do well to move to the next round.
Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, will be disappointed after a poor derby performance against Arsenal. They are 3rd in the league and there has been discussion regarding their performances this season despite their high position in the table.
They are 2nd in their group, three points behind leaders Sporting CP. Antonio Conte does not enjoy a good record in the Champions League as a manager, and a poor outing with a strong side will not bode well for the Italian.
Tottenham Hotspur to win here.
