Aberdeen vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Match Predictions, Fantasy Football Tips, Line-ups and Team News
Since the visitors cannot place higher than second and the hosts cannot qualify, the game is more about momentum and self-worth than it is about making an influence on the standings.
Aberdeen returned to winning ways in the Scottish Premiership this past weekend against Hearts, after six games without a win in all competitions.
The Dons defeated the Jambos 2-1 after coming from behind thanks to goals from Bojan Miovski and Leighton Clarkson in the 92nd minute. They will try to carry that momentum into Thursday night’s match.
With three ties and two losses thus far in the Europa Conference League, Barry Robson’s team has yet to win a game, and a major contributing factor in that has been their defensive play.
Robson will be looking to concentrate on Aberdeen’s goal conceded in the competition, which stands at 10 goals in five games.
The Dons will work hard to avoid finishing last, which is what might occur if they lose and HJK Helsinki wins. This is even if they are unable to secure a top-two berth.
The visitors’ goal now is to generate momentum ahead of the knockout stage because they have already won a second-place finish in the group and are unable to finish higher.
They will be trying to get over their previous Europa Conference League loss, which came at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1.
The club should feel very confident going into Thursday’s match after defeating Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga with a strong showing the previous weekend.
They not only overcame Thomas Tuchel’s team, but they also dominated the match, winning 5-1 to highlight their potent attacking attack. Four different players scored goals.
With 11 goals this season, the German team has proven to be a formidable offensive force in Europe, and Aberdeen should have some difficulties against them.

Jack Milne made his season debut for Aberdeen at the weekend, and if the club does well, he might be kept in the lineup come midweek.
After scoring against Hearts, Miovski is probably going to lead the line; it will be up to the coach to decide whether to team him with Duk or Ester Sokler.
Sebastian Rode’s calf injury means the team will be missing their skipper. The visitors have been struggling with a lot of injuries lately.
The team is currently stretched even thinner as a result of the injuries to Timothy Chandler, Jens Hauge, and Ellyes Skhiri.
Due to a suspension, Noel Futkeu will also be absent for Frankfurt in this match after being sent off in their most recent Europa Conference League match.
Aberdeen possible starting lineup:
Roos; Devlin, Gartenmann, Jensen; Milne, Clarkson, Shinnie, Hayes, McGrath; Miovski, Sokler
Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Trapp; Buta, Tuta, Koch, Pacho, Max; Chaibi, Dina Ebimbe, Larsson, Knauff; Marmoush
