Eintracht Frankfurt’s statistics are not nearly as impressive.
At present, it sits in sixth place in the Bundesliga. But it has drawn its last two games with a 1-1 result in its last outing at home against Stuttgart last weekend.
It finished second in its UCL group behind Tottenham Hotspur with a record of three wins, one draw and two defeats.
However, it scored only seven goals while conceding eight.
Victor Osimhen to Score Odds
Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has scored no fewer than 19 times in 22 Serie A appearances this season. He also has two UCL goals.
So it is clear to see why he is the wide favorite to score in this tie at -110 – or at +275 to score first or last.
He is followed in the odds by his Argentina team-mate Giovanni Simeone, who has three Serie A goals – but has been on target four times in the UCL. He is priced at +150 to score.
Napoli’s impressive Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has 11 Serie A goals and two UCL goals and is also priced at +150 to score.
Eintracht Frankfurt’s leading scorer is the Japanese midfielder Daichi Kamada who has 13 goals this season. But he is rated well down the odds at +400.
