One of the most improved teams in the top five leagues across Europe in the last two seasons have been Eintracht Frankfurt. The Bundesliga team have been on the ascendancy in the league since the 2017-18 season. And in the previous two seasons, they have become a force winning the Europa League by defeating teams such as Barcelona on the way. And they have kept their form up this season by qualifying for the Champions League round of 16 and climbing up to second in the Bundesliga table. The team is blessed with a combination of youth and experience, with Jesper Lindstrom being one of the best players to come out this season.
