Barcelona – Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview

  • Barcelona defeated Levante 3-2 on Sunday night, with an injury-time strike putting gloss on what is now an unbeaten competitive run of 15 games (W11, D4) – the longest across Europe’s top-five leagues. That includes a 1-1 draw in their UEFA Europa League (UEL) quarter-final first leg clash against Eintracht Frankfurt, giving coach Xavi hope that Barcelona’s worries over finishing outside La Liga’s top-four will be made redundant by UEL glory.
  • Xavi has publicly urged the fans who once idolised him as a player to make the Camp Nou stadium “a pressure cooker” for this return leg, especially with Barcelona targeting only a second major European semi-final since 2015/16. A strong defensive performance is expected, with Barça keeping four straight home clean sheets, last keeping more in a row back in January 2018.
  • Frankfurt lost 2-1 in the Bundesliga over the weekend, halting a run of four competitive draws, but the fans chanted “away win, away win”, underlining their ambitions. The German side have never lost a two-legged knockout tie against Spanish opponents (W3), and are unbeaten in the UEL this season (W4, D5), provoking dreams of the ‘Eagles’ recreating the club’s famous 1979/80 UEFA Cup-winning run.
  • Sporting an identical record (W3, D1) over their last four away UEL games and their last four away games against Spanish clubs, any surprise win for Frankfurt seems near-certain to be a tight affair. Including all three this season, 11 of their last 12 UEL away wins have come via a single-goal margin.
  • Players to watch: Including the reverse leg strike, Ferran Torres has four goal involvements in his last five UEL games (G2, A2) with both goals coming when Barça were 1-0 behind. Filip Kostić also scored when Frankfurt were 1-0 behind over the weekend, but his last UEL away goal gave them a 1-0 lead.
  • Hot stat: Eight of Frankfurt’s last ten UEL games have stood level at half-time.
