Real Betis vs Frankfurt Europa League Live Stream: How to Watch, Team News, Head to Head, Odds, Prediction and Everything You Need to Know

Frankfurts N'Dicka and Real Betis' William Carvalho

We have another Europa League game on our screens tonight, with Real Betis taking on Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of their Last 16 fixture. Here we have everything you need to know regarding the fixture.

Both sides have really struggled for form in recent weeks. Frankfurt have lost three of their last four games in the Bundesliga, whilst Real Betis have zero wins in four games – meaning this tie could be up for grabs for either side.

Despite recent form – Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini will be thrilled with his team’s performances this season, they’re hovering around the Champions League places in La Liga – which would be a remarkable achievement for Los Verdiblancos.

Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner on the other hand won’t be as happy, with his side sitting 10th in the Bundesliga, which is nowhere near to the standard wanted from the club. The league is close – so they still do have time to make ground.

However, tonight is an entirely different focus – European football. Here’s everything you need to know regarding Real Betis vs Frankfurt.

Team News

Hector Bellerin of Real Betis prepares to take a throw in.

Both teams face some injury problems prior to kick-off.

Betis come into this fixture with problems at left-back, with Alberto Moreno and Juan Miranda both injured. Andres Guardado filled in on the weekend against Atletico Madrid but was forced off just after 11 minutes – meaning he also isn’t going to be available for today’s fixture.

This will leave either Hector Bellerin or Aitor Ruibal to fill in in this slot – with the other staying at right-back.

Rodri, Martin Montoya and Victor Camarasa are also all injured, meaning they all won’t feature tonight.

Betis do however have the return of Sergio Canales who was serving a one-game suspension.

Portuguese attacker Goncalo Paciencia will miss this fixture through suspension and Ragnar Ache, Sebastian Rode and Diant Ramaj are also all out with injuries.

Other than that – it’s the usual suspects for Frankfurt.

Real Betis Predicted XI: Bravo; Bellerin, Pezzella, Gonzalez, Ruibal; Rodriguez, Carvalho; Canales, Fekir, Juanmi; Jose

Frankfurt Predicted XI: Trapp; Tuta, Hinteregger, N’Dicka; Knauff, Jakic, Sow, Kostic; Kamada, Lindstrom; Borre


Head to Head

These sides have NEVER met before competitively.

They did meet in a club-friendly in 2017 – where Frankfurt came out 3-0 winners.


Odds

Here are the odds that are being offered by various bookmakers:

Real Betis: 19/20

Draw: 13/5

Frankfurt: 11/4


Prediction: Real Betis 3-1 Eintracht Frankfurt

William Carvalho of Real Betis celebrates after scoring his team's second goal

Frankfurt haven’t kept a clean sheet in five games – so Betis are guaranteed goals.

We think Frankfurt will score, but ultimately the tacking firepower of Pellegrini’s side will prove too much for the German club.
