    Standard Liege host Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday night for a vital clash in Group F.

    Eintracht got the better of Standard on Matchday 3, so the Belgian side will be looking to get their revenge this time around.

    The German club are second in Group F with six points, while a win for Standard would see the them go level on points with Frankfurt.

    Eintracht kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal. However, victories over Vitoria and Standard have put them in a strong position to qualify for the knockout stages.

    With six points from a possible nine, a win for Frankfurt would all but secure them a place in the Round of 32.

    On the other hand, Standard claimed a comfortable win over Vitoria on Matchday 1. But defeats to Arsenal and Frankfurt have left the Belgians fighting to stay in the competition.

    Three points from three games mean anything other than a win on Matchday 4 will see Standard cast adrift in Group F.

    English side Arsenal top the group with a 100% record. Three wins from three have put the Gunners in pole position to win Group F.

    Frankfurt come into this match on the back of a stunning 5-1 victory over German heavyweights Bayern Munich.

    Five different Eintracht players got on the scoresheet against Bayern, while the result was so heavy, it resulted in Bayern parting ways with their manager, Niko Kovac.

    This huge win moved Frankfurt up to seventh in the Bundesliga table, one point behind the reigning champions.

    Standard Liege have been enjoying less domestic success recently. They suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Gent last time out, and have now won just two of their last six league games.

    They currently sit second in the Belgian Pro League, but find themselves six points off top spot having played one game more than league-leaders Club Brugge.

    Standard come into this match in poor form, while Frankfurt will be full of confidence following their thrashing of Bayern Munich.

    The German side got the better of Standard in the previous round, and Frankfurt are now expected to do the double over the Belgians.

    Forebet predicts that Eintracht Frankfurt will claim a low-scoring victory on Matchday 4, putting them in a strong position to progress from Group F.
