5 reasons Eintracht Frankfurt will beat Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Champions League

Eintracht Frankfurt took down Barcelona, West Ham United and Glasgow Rangers en route to winning last season's UEFA Europa League.

Frankfurt's 2021/22 Europa League winners inevitably attracted outside interest, with Daichi Kamada among those linked with a move away. 

1) The Main man from Japan

2) Smells like Team Spirit

"Manchester United is a club that's famous around the world, and I hope everyone can understand that I engaged with such an offer and thought about it," he reasoned in an Instagram post.

"But I told the managements of both clubs yesterday that I’ve opted for Eintracht. I've had unforgettable experiences here with Frankfurt and we've made history together."

3) Tactical flexibility

The Frankfurt mastermind has a habit of switching between 4-2-3-1 and a 3-4-2-1 systems, but also the nous to match opposition teams like for like.

4) Form favours the Eagles

Over in Germany, Frankfurt dismantled Union Berlin to inflict a first Bundesliga defeat of the season on the surprise league leaders.

5) Fortress Frankfurt

Frankfurt have contested 95 European fixtures in their own back yard, losing just 12. Defeat on their Champions League debut to Sporting Lisbon was a rare blot to the copybook.
