Following a demoralizing derby day loss over the weekend, Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League on Tuesday.
On Saturday, Frankfurt became the first team to overcome early Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin this season with a gratifying 2-0 home victory, while Antonio Conte’s team suffered a 3-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham Hotspur Tips and Prediction
Oliver Glasner’s Frankfurt, who recently defeated the league’s top team, will try to beat Tottenham for the fourth time in a row on Saturday. The streak started with a stunning Champions League victory in Southern France.
The Germans ended Marseille’s run of five straight home victories with an incisive, smash-and-grab performance at the Orange Velodrome, as Jesper Lindstrom scored a crisp, left-footed goal to seal a 1-0 away victory. This came after the Germans’ dismal 3-0 loss to Sporting Lisbon in their opening group match.
But with Die Adler, form must always be treated with a grain of salt. Glasner’s team, known for their unfailing inconsistency, has previously lost to Wolfsburg this season after thrashing RB Leipzig, so they’ll need to stay concentrated with players like Harry Kane and Son Heung-min keeping an eye out for any concentration lapses.
The Europa League champions are undoubtedly a formidable team who Conte’s team should not take lightly despite their subpar home record, having already suffered three losses at Deutsche Bank Park this season.
For the visitors, there is no time to reflect on past performances as they enter one of their busiest schedules in recent memory.
A win in Germany against Frankfurt, which has three points in Group D as well, might pave the way for an important path to the Champions League knockout stages.
Three weeks ago, Sporting Lisbon defeated Lilywhites, becoming the first English team to lose in Europe’s premier competition. Marcus Edwards, a former member of the Spurs academy, started in attack for Sporting Lisbon.
Although Os Leoes are in first place in the group, they have a challenging trip to Marseille this week, which could provide a chance for the other two teams to catch up.
Emerson Royal’s dismissal in the 62nd minute on Saturday certainly did not help Tottenham’s cause; it allowed an energised Arsenal to press forward and finish an otherwise competitive contest.
Conte’s team wasn’t at their best, but they held up reasonably well under pressure, and it was maybe unfortunate that they lost by two.
Similar fortitude will be needed in Frankfurt to prevent morale from dropping ahead of a hard schedule of games, sandwiched between travels to Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United.
We anticipate an upbeat Eintracht Frankfurt to present difficulties for Spurs going forward because they have a lot to play for.
However, given that they have allowed 11 goals at home this year, the Germans are certain to miss a few opportunities that a strong forward line should capitalize on.
