Sporting CP – Eintracht Frankfurt Free Betting Tips

UEFA Champions League (UCL) matchday six is typically winner-takes-all territory, a description that fits perfectly with Group D, where all four teams could qualify for the knockout stage if results go their way. Sporting CP saw their chance to go top of the group snatched away by an agonising Tottenham goal last time out, and anything less than a win in this clash will jeopardise their hopes of progressing.

Rúben Amorim’s side followed that draw in north London with a defeat to Arouca at the weekend, meaning the Lions have now won just one of their last five games in all competitions (E1, P3). The visit of Eintracht Frankfurt is unlikely to restore confidence among their supporters, as Sporting have won just four of their previous 29 matches against German opposition (E6, P19), although one of those matches was a 3-0 win in the previous meeting between the two sides.
The equation for qualification is much clearer for Frankfurt, who need to make history and record back-to-back wins in UEFA’s premier club competition since 1959/60 to advance to the knockout phase. Oliver Glasner’s side were also beaten over the weekend, as a Jude Bellingham goal sealed a 2-1 defeat for the ‘Eagles’ against Borussia Dortmund, preventing them from breaking into the Bundesliga’s top four.

That defeat came after a run of four wins in a row for Frankfurt, who kept their UCL hopes alive with a big win over Marseille the previous matchday. Playing this decisive game away from home could work in Frankfurt’s favour, who have lost just two away games in all competitions so far this season (G6, E1). For that solid run to continue, they will need to record an upset win on Portuguese soil, something Frankfurt have achieved just once in their history (E1, P1).
Players to watch: Sporting’s Marcus Edwards scored against his former side Tottenham last time out and has lost just one of eight games in which he has found the back of the net since joining the club (G5, E2). Frankfurt’s Daichi Kamada also scored recently and has now scored 11 goals in all competitions this season.
Weekend stat: Sporting have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine games in all competitions.
