A magical European Cup night of the Frankfurt concord for only five euros? Impossible? Not in the Estonian capital Tallinn! More than two months after the bitter departure in the Europa League semi-final against Chelsea FC, Eintracht are back on the international stage. Because the Hesse finished seventh place in the past Bundesliga season, they are now entering the new competitive season as the first Bundesliga club. In the second qualifying round of the Europa League, the SGE-Weg leads to Tallinn on Thursday evening. Again, the players can look forward to many traveling fans, because, as already mentioned, a ticket for full payers costs only five euros. Students even come for three euros in the A. Le Coq Arena, which is named after the sponsor, an Estonian brewery.
Football Betting Tips Flora Tallinn vs Frankfurt
Despite these extremely cheap prizes, just over 1,000 spectators two weeks ago saw their team’s 2-0 home win in the first qualifying round against Serbian Nis. Thanks to a 1-1 draw in the second leg, the Baltics are now looking forward to two highlight matches against last year’s semi-finalists. In any case, the blatant underdog is not frozen in fear, after all Flora Tallinn last celebrated five competitive matches from six games. In addition, the green-whites are in the current game operation, while the harmony is in the midst of preparation. Although the quality differences of both clubs are obvious, in our eyes in the first leg between Flora Tallinn and Frankfurt the odds for a tip on the Hütter team are too low. In this regard, we recall the bumpy Eagle start phase last season as well as the well-known departures in this transfer window.
Flora Tallinn – Statistics & Current Form
With some creativity Flora Tallinn can be described as the FC Bayern München of Estonian football. Since 1992, the Green-Whites celebrated a total of eleven championships. The highlight was certainly the season 2005, when the FC even without a single defeat crowned. While the country’s largest sports club is an absolute heavyweight on a national level, the trips to the European stage have not really been successful so far.
In 24 of the last 25 seasons, the captains were represented internationally. Not once did the Balts successfully survive their first qualifying round. At least this dry spell has come to an end in the current season 2019/2020. In the first round, the team of the only 32-year-old coach Jürgen Henn claimed against the actually higher rated Serbs of Radnicki Nis. A 2-0 first-leg win in front of a home crowd was followed by a 1-1 draw in the distance, which ultimately reached to progress. The likelihood that this is the beginning of a winning streak in European Cup, is still extremely low, because even before the first leg in the second qualifying round between Flora Tallinn and Frankfurt, we meet the prediction that the Estonians from the end of July again exclusively on their national tasks can concentrate.
In the Meistriliiga in Estonia, which is traditionally held with the calendar year from March to November, so far it is running around. The third-placed from the previous year leads the classification after 20 completed matchdays with 52 points. 17 wins face a division of points and only two defeats. In addition, the Henn-Elf has the second best offensive (61 goals – over three per game) and the safest defensive (14 goals) and won last, including the Europa League, five of the youngest six competitive games. The self-confidence is therefore just as great as the anticipation of the two matches against Eintracht, which represent the previous highlight of her career for many Estonian professionals.
The most interesting personality on the part of the outsider is certainly Erik Sorga. The 20-year-old attacker made his breakthrough this year and has already scored 20 goals in 19 games. In the European Championship qualifier, the youngster against Northern Ireland celebrated his debut in the national team. In general, the FC Flora is a young, dynamic team in which many talents get the trust early. Even in the extended coaching staff there is no coach that is older than 40 years. Whether the bottom line average in the absence of experience negative or in youthful carefreeness positively, we will experience on Thursday evening. We certainly would not dare to give a hint to the home side between Flora Tallinn and Frankfurt, although we do not believe in a runaway victory of the German guests.
Expected formation of Flora Tallinn:
➲ Arland – Järvelaid, Pürg, Lukka, Kams – Ainsalu, Poom – Sinyavskiy, Miller, Liivak – Sorga
➲ Coach: Henn

Frankfurt – Statistics & Current Form
For exactly three weeks Eintracht Frankfurt has been preparing for the new season. Admittedly, those responsible for coach Adi Hütter would have gladly refrained from starting the competitive season just under a month before the official start of the Bundesliga, but jumped due to staggering performance on the home stretch in the last game year and the double load with the Europa League ultimately “only” the seventh place out, which may nevertheless be booked as a huge success.
That the entire Main metropolis after the international successes of 2018/2019 thirsts for another year in the Europa League is beyond question. However, it is still a long way to go until the group stage is reached, which should by no means be underestimated. Should the Eagles find their way through Flora Tallinn as expected in the second qualifying round, Vaduz or Videoton would already be waiting for another caliber in the next round. After all, the playoff games would be on the program following a renewed progress. Even though the Bundesliga club should be able to skip these three hurdles on a qualitative level, the challenges promise to be difficult. On the one hand, this is, of course, due to highly motivated counterparties who want to annoy a previous year semi-finalist. On the other hand, however, also at the early stage of those qualifiers and the fact that the SBU 2019/2020 can no longer be compared with the Frankfurters of the previous year.
With Martin Hinteregger, Kevin Trapp, Luka Jovic, Sebastian Rode and Sebastien Haller, five top performers have left the club. While Hinteregger, Rode and Trapp have at least some hopes for a return, attackers Jovic (at Real Madrid) and Haller (at West Ham United) have used the overwhelming past season to climb at least two salary levels.
“We want to deliver a good match. It’s the first game of the season and we want to do that positively. But it is a difficult game for us. There are only heavy opponents in the Europa League. For Tallinn it’s probably her life. ” – Goncalo Paciencia
It is quite possible that the Croatian international Ante Rebic and the third buffalo herd will leave the German financial capital. Coach Adi Hütter therefore faces the challenging task of forming a new, functioning collective that can nevertheless live up to the heightened expectations. In fact, depending on which personnel decisions are made in the transfer market in the next few days and weeks, the Hessians are one of the magic bags. Among other things, therefore, we can not fully understand why between the fit Estonians of Flora Tallinn and Frankfurt are offered only such low odds for a success of the Bundesliga.
Coach Adi Hütter will have to do without goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow, who will in all likelihood be replaced by Felix Wiedwald. Newcomer Djibril Sow from the Young Boys from Bern also has to pass due to injury. In the previous preparatory games, the SBU missed any constancy. An embarrassing appearance against Hütter’s ex-club YBB (1: 5) was followed by a 3-1 win against Luzern. On Thursday evening, however, the Eintracht must expect a concentrated defensive. Perhaps the game will turn into a test of patience, so Flora Tallinn against Frankfurt could pay a tip to a maximum of three hits.
Expected formation of Frankfurt:
➲ Wiedwald – Abraham, Hasebe, N’Dicka – Kostic, Kohr, Fernandes, Gacinovic, Da Costa – Paciencia, Rebic
➲ Coach: Hütter
Last matches from Frankfurt:
⚽️ 12.07.2019 – Luzern vs Frankfurt 1: 3 (friendly)
⚽️ 10.07.2019 – Young Boys Vs. Frankfurt 5: 1 (friendly)
⚽️ 24.05.2019 – Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg 3: 3 (friendly)
⚽️ 18.05.2019 – Bayern vs Frankfurt 5: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 12.05.2019 – Frankfurt vs Mainz 0: 2 (Bundesliga)
Flora Tallinn vs Frankfurt Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
Both clubs are facing each other for the first time in a competitive match. For the Eintracht it is also the first ever meeting in European Cup with an Estonian club. Remains to hope from the German perspective that the last year’s semi-finalist can direct the direct comparison immediately on the right track.
Flora Tallinn vs Frankfurt Our Best Betting Tips Explained
In the early part of the season 2018/2019 Adi Hütter was already after the embarrassing cup-off against Ulm and the heavy swatter in the Supercup against Bayern (0: 5) already powerful in the criticism. However, the Austrian asked for time and was then able to exceed all expectations placed in him. It is quite possible that the start of the Frankfurt Eintracht will be more bumpy in 2019/2020 than many would expect. The qualifying matches at this early stage of the season are no picnic, especially as with the Estonian record champions an opponent waiting for last year’s semi-finalists, who is fully in the game operation and also in good shape. As a result, the Flora Tallinn vs Frankfurt betting odds on a Kantersieg (-2.5 / -3.5) of the Hessen in our eyes no value.
Key Facts – Flora Tallinn vs Frankfurt tips
🔴 Flora Tallinn has played a strong season in Estonia (17-2-1) and heads the table
🔴 Frankfurt has only been in preparation for three weeks
🔴 Almost half of the tribe had to give up the concord in the summer …
🔴 … new automatisms have to be rehearsed under competition level
Instead, we can well imagine that the SBU will need some time to adapt to the conditions in the Baltic States. Five top performers have left the club and in the previous test matches the Bundesliga club has the proof that a new hierarchy has already formed within the team. The Eintracht from the European League semi-final 2018/2019 against Chelsea is therefore by no means to be compared with the team that must meet their favorite role on Thursday evening. We therefore decide in the first leg between Flora Tallinn and Frankfurt for the tip that there will be a maximum of three goals. We risk a stake of six units.
Bet Tip: Under 3.5
