Take a look at the latest form and squad news from Eintracht Frankfurt and Barcelona:
Eintracht Frankfurt Form and Team News
Eintracht Frankfurt recovered from three straight losses in February to win thrice and draw four times in their last 7 games. However, all four draws have come in succession and is a worrying stat for the German team going into this match with Spain’s most in-form team.
Frankfurt have many things going on for them in the Europa League, and they are yet to lose in the competition this season. Three draws and wins in the group stages, followed by a win and draw over two legs versus Real Betis, underline their excellent form in the competition. Japanese forward Daichi Kamada tops the scoring charts for the German side with 3 goals in the EL.
For injuries and absences, Danny da Costa will miss the clash with Barcelona in Frankfurt as he is currently sidelined with an injury he picked up earlier in March.
Barcelona Form and Team News
Barcelona’s meteoric return to form comes at a perfect time, and the Blaugrana have turned their season around with some breathtaking footballing displays in 2022. Thirteen matches unbeaten, with 10 wins and 3 draws, says a lot about Barca’s form, and they go into this match on the back of an important win against Sevilla in La Liga.
Having crashed out of the Champions League, pundits predicted a disastrous season for the Blaugrana. Yet they have clawed their way up to 2nd in the league and are strong favorites to win the Europa League trophy after defeating Napoli and Galatasaray. In four Europa League matches, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored twice, making him their highest goal scorer.
Sergino Dest and Luuk de Jong will sit out the trip to Frankfurt as they remain on the fringes due to varying injuries.
