Betting Tips

The Bosnian-born striker has been in excellent form this season – six of his 21 strikes to date this season have come in the Europa League, including one at home to Shakhtar last time out. Inter’s defence has been porous lately and this could give the 21-year-old forward goalscoring opportunities. This is among the best online betting odds for this round of action.

Goals have been a hallmark of Eintracht Frankfurt’s European campaign this season – 32 have flown in across their eight matches to date. Furthermore, Inter scored five goals across their aggregate victory over Rapid Vienna and their last four games in all competitions have produced 16 goals. 888Sport has over 2.5 goals at Evens.
