Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Levski Sofia preview: Team news and predicted lineups

Here's our preview of Thursday's Europa Conference League second leg qualifier between Eintracht Frankfurt and Levski Sofia, including predicted lineups for both teams.
After a 1-1 draw in Bulgaria last week, Eintracht Frankfurt will be hoping to seal qualification for the Europa Conference League on home soil when they host Levski Sofia in the second leg of their playoff tie on Thursday night.

The Eagles' preparations for the match have been far from ideal, however, with star striker Randal Kolo Muani unavailable after skipping Wednesday's training session in a bid to force through a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Eintracht will also have to get used to life without Jesper Lindstrøm, who completed a move to Napoli on Tuesday.

"Jesper is gone, Kolo will not play. But we're not moaning, we're accepting the challenge. We want to cross the finish line as a group - with our fans. Everyone who is there will tear themselves apart tomorrow," said Eintracht coach Dino Toppmöller, who confirmed that Omar Marmoush will be in his starting lineup.

"Omar will definitely start. We're still looking at who we're going to put alongside him," added Toppmöller, who has no fresh injury worries.

Sitting next to Toppmöller was Eintracht veteran Makoto Hasebe, who said the club's success in Europe in recent seasons will spur the team on.

"We have had great European runs in recent years. We definitely want to continue playing internationally this year," Hasebe emphasized.
