Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha BSC
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt founded the way out of the crisis on Wednesday evening when they stunned Schalke 04 away at VELTINS-Arena to book a place in the DFB Pokal final. Niko Kovac will meet his future club Bayern Munich there, but before he gets to the final game of that competition, he still needs to try help the team bounce back in Bundesliga where the Eagles are winless in last three matches.
Frankfurt actually took only a single point in games against Werder Bremen, Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen. They are now even out of the top six in the league ladder being one point short of Die Kraichgauer. Borussia Dortmund are five points above in fourth and only a miracle could launch the Eagles to the Champions League next term.
But can they bounce back here against Hertha BSC? The visitors play hot and cold and they can be a tough nut to crack on their day, but let’s be honest everything depends on Frankfurt’s display here.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha BSC: Head-to-head
Four of last seven head to head games ended without a winner.
Interestingly, Frankfurt won just one in this process, and that lone victory came in this term of Bundesliga when the Eagles saw off Hertha 1-2 at Olympiastadion Berlin.
As many as 12 of 29 H2H games at Commerzbank-Arena ended in a draw.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha BSC: Prediction
Hertha completed a comeback against the rock-bottomed Koln last weekend in the capital. They generally tend to struggle to find goals, especially against well-organized defensive lines. Eintracht can be very tough to break down. Yes, they shipped four last Saturday at BayArena, but they won five and drew one of last six home ties in Bundesliga conceding just once in last three games at Commerzbank-Arena.
Niko Kovac’s men proved their defensive quality in mid-week when they held in-form Schalke 04. They are in a much greater need for points here and we’ll go for the home win at the odds of 1.95. Alternatively, the Eagles are 2.50 to keep things quiet at the back here.
