Eintracht will give Napoli the fight. Italians can’t break through the German wall

Date: April 2, 2023 Time: 08:20:43

Team form and playoffs


Eintracht Frankfurt are an occasional passenger in the 2022/23 Champions League play-offs, having quite frankly been lucky with opponents in the group stage. They finished second behind Tottenham Hotspur but managed to get past Sporting CP and Marseille.

However, Eintracht cannot be called weak. The club is in the top six in Germany and is only five points behind leaders Bayern. The team is in excellent shape, and in the previous ten Bundesliga rounds the following results: 5 wins, 4 draws, 1 loss.


Everyone has heard of the crazy Napoli, but if there’s a reason to go back to admire them, they’re definitely worth doing. This season there is not a single Italian team that can compete with the Neapolitans. The team leads the Serie A table by a wide margin, ahead of the nearest rival by 15 points.

In Europe, the power of Napoli has not been lost anywhere either. The Italians won the group with Liverpool, Rangers and Ajax, losing only once to the British in the last round, which had no effect on the standings. The last five rounds ended with five wins with a total score of 12:1.

estimated compositions


One of the factors why Eintracht has shown consistent and high-quality results throughout the season is a well-played and stable team. The head coach rarely goes to the starting rotation, so guessing the composition is pretty easy to guess.

For example, Randal Kolo Muani, who is currently one of the best strikers in the Bundesliga, will come out on top and is very versatile. On his account, he not only 10 goals in 19 games, which is not bad in itself, but also 10 assists.

Eintracht estimated composition (3-4-2-1): Trapp – Tuta, Yakic, Ndika – Max, Sow, Kamada, Knauff – Lindström, Götze – Muani


But even the French striker pales in comparison to Napoli’s attacking power. First of all, goals should be expected from Victor Osimhen, who has 22 points in “goal + assist” in 22 games of the season, which makes him one of the best players in his role this season.

And Khvicha Kvaratskhelia can be considered the main assistant to Osimhen, who not only gave 12 assists, but also scored the same number. Stunning form of the Georgian winger.

Only Giacomo Raspadori, 23, will be missing from the Champions League match. Although he is not an iron player in the squad, his 4+2 in the group stage helped Luciano Spalletti a lot.

Eintracht Frankfurt estimated formation (4-3-3): Meret – Olivera, Min Jae, Rrahmani, Lorenzo – Zielinski, Lobotka, Angissa – Khvicha, Lozano, Osimhen

Statistics and facts

The last time the rivals met was in the 1994/95 season. Then, in the UEFA Cup playoffs, the Germans with the same score (1:0) won both at home and away.

Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 11 matches against rivals from Italy shows the following results: 6 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. Furthermore, the last failure dates back to 2006, when Palermo was stronger.

Eintracht Frankfurt is the 11th German team to play in the Champions League playoffs, which will be a tournament record. The Germans beat Spain, which has only ten teams.

Napoli have scored 20 goals in the Champions League group stage. This is the best result of the season.

Oliver Glasner is the main architect of Eintracht’s success. Under his leadership, the team lost only 2 games out of 19 in European competition. Also, only one of them took place at home, but otherwise the home results are almost flawless: 3 wins and 5 draws.
