Barcelona travel to Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-finals – Watch live in India

UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-finals

The UEFA Europa League 2021-22 quarter-finals will see FC Barcelona travelling to Frankfurt in Germany to take on Eintracht Frankfurt at the Deutsche Bank Park for the first leg on April 8, 2022. The other match will see West Ham hosting French club Lyon at the London Stadium on the very same day.

Eintracht Frankfurt will be disappointed with the goalless stalemate at the hands of Greuther Furth. It was not the outcome that Oliver Glasner’s side was looking for given their battle for the European spots in the Bundesliga, especially after another goalless draw against RB Leipzig before the international break. However, the silver lining is that Frankfurt are undefeated in their last four matches in the domestic league since being defeated 1-0 by German champions Bayern Munich.

Frankfurt are currently ninth in Bundesliga and have accrued 39 points so far this season. They have won 10 matches and have drawn and lost nine matches each. They have a goal difference of +1 which probably reflects the chaotic nature of Eintracht Frankfurt’s season so far in the domestic league.

Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten in eight matches against Spanish opponents in Europe, having won five and drawn thrice. They’ve won and drawn two of those matches each at home. Frankfurt have also never suffered a defeat at home in any major European competition in the quarter-finals and beyond. This is the highest record for a side that has ever played in major European competitions without being defeated and Barcelona could have a tough task on their hands.

The Catalan giants were impressive once again following their return to La Liga after the international break. Pedri has quickly cemented his place as one of the best footballers in the world and it was his magical goal that broke the deadlock against Sevilla and decided the contest 1-0 in favour of Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

Suffering from a shaky start to the season under Ronald Koeman, Barcelona have now kicked into fifth gear following the arrival of Xavi as well as the winter signings. The 0-4 drubbing of Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu is still fresh in the minds of football supporters and they have climbed from ninth to second in La Liga within a few months.

Barcelona also dispatched with Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray in the previous round of the Europa League. Following a goalless draw at the Camp Nou, the Spanish giants defeated the opposition 1-2 in Turkey thanks to goals from Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Pedri. Aubameyang has been sensational and he has scored nine goals across all competitions since joining the club in January. He has also scored 24 goals in the Europa League with none of them coming from the penalty spot. Only Radamel Falcao has scored more non-penalty goals in this competition (27).

Meanwhile, West Ham will collide with Lyon on their home turf. The English side defeated Everton 2-1 in their last outing while Lyon got the better of Angers 3-2 in Ligue 1.
