TODAY'S BEST BET | SEPTEMBER 16
We’re heading to the Europa League for today’s best bet as struggling Frankfurt play host to a Fenerbahce side who haven’t tasted an away defeat in almost a year.
Frankfurt were the talk of the town a couple of years ago in the Europa League when they toppled the likes of Inter and Benfica to advance all the way to the semi-finals, going down to Chelsea on penalties.
The German club have remained a threat in the Bundesliga and once again qualified for the Europa League last season after only just missing out on the Champions League.
However, Frankfurt have lost some key figures – in similar fashion to when the likes of Luka Jovic and Sebastian Haller departed the club a couple of seasons ago – and are nowhere near their best heading into this clash.
Andre Silva has left for Leipzig and Frankfurt have struggled in front of goal as a result, while manager Adi Hutter has also moved on.
Frankfurt are winless in five competitive matches under new boss Oliver Glasner – including being knocked out of the German Cup by lower-tier Mannheim, while they failed to put away a 10-man Stuttgart side at home on the weekend, drawing 1-1.
While Frankfurt are struggling, Fenerbahce are flying, going unbeaten in their four Turkish Super Lig fixtures and winning three.
Additionally, Fenerbahce are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions – and going even further back, the Turkish heavyweights haven’t lost their last 17 away fixture dating back to December 2020.
That’s why we like Fenerbahce in the double chance market here. All the pressure is on Frankfurt as they attempt to find some form in front of their home fans – and so far, they haven’t responded to all the changes over the off-season.
Fenerbahce are tempting at the $5.00 price to pull off the upset, but we’ll stick with the Turkish club to make it 18 straight away games unbeaten.
- Fenerbahce are unbeaten in their last 17 straight away matches
- Fenerbahce last lost an away game in December 2020
- Frankfurt are winless in five competitive games this season
- Frankfurt have only scored one goal at home all season
- Fenerbahce are unbeaten in their last 14 matches
