Europa League: Why Frankfurt have got an advantage over Chelsea

Timothy Aiyeku



There are suggestions that German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt have been handed a major advantage ahead of their Europa League semi-final game against West London outfit Chelsea by next month.

This is after it is claimed that the Bundesliga have shifted a game from the penultimate round of fixtures to help Eintracht Frankfurt have a better rest and prepare well against the Blues team.

The German Bundesliga outfit are currently sitting fourth in the Bundesliga table and have got three games left to end the season which means they are likely to return to the Champions League if they retain the spot but there is a bid to have them reach the finals to stand the chance of playing in the finals.

However, it is expected to serve as a major boost to the Bundesliga side and to keep them in a better position to play in the finals of the competition later in May.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has advocated for this kind of treatment from the English Premier League but that has not happened yet, knowing that the opportunity was handed to Ajax and it helped them with their Champions League wins against Real Madrid and Juventus respectively.
