3 pts win FC NURNBERG 1.14/1 ( Betfair) v Eintracht Frankfurt German Cup Semi-Final

FCN have home advantage and will want to finish this one off in one go prior to their important away game in the league at Leverkusen on Saturday, a game which could have major implications for both clubs participation in Europe next season - particularly if Nurenberg fail to win this competition. They have been playing some fine football this season, highlighted by their 3-0 crushing of Bayern in February, and have only been defeated once at the Easy Credit Stadion all season. Frankfurt have improved in the last two months and now have a four points cushion between them and the relegation zone. They've only lost one of their last six away matches, and obtained a 2-2 draw here last month.However,the FCN with an almost full strength squad including Markus Schroth and Ivan Saenko, who have scored 15 goals between them, should overpower their rivals here and are worth support to kill this tie in 90 minuites.

FCN 4 E. Frankfurt 0 +3.4 pts
