Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 8 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt am Main).
The loss at Weserstadion has halted Eintracht’s push for the Champions League football next term. The Eagles fell down to sixth place, but they are still well in the game for the top four finish being just a single point shy of RB Leipzig there. Niko Kovac and his men, however, need to pass a super tough Hoffenhiem test on Sunday afternoon if they want to keep the Champions League dream alive.
Die Kraichgauer will enter the game high on confidence after a demolishing 6-0 win over Koln last Saturday. Julian Nagelsmann’s side has been really thriving up front recently, netting as many as 12 goals in last three Bundesliga outings. Team’s top scorer Marc Uth has finally added to his ten goals tally. The German forward now has 12 to his name after bagging a brace in the mentioned drubbing of Koln last weekend.
A decent streak of three wins and a draw in last four league outings has re-joined Hoffenheim to the battle or the European football next year. They could move lock on points with the Eagles in case of a victory at Commerzbank-Arena. However, maintaining such an impressive form will be one hell of a task for Hoffenheim given they are up against a side which has won five on the bounce on the home patch in Bundesliga.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics entirely favours Hoffenheim who have won 98 and lost only 3 of 17 meetings with the Eagles so far.
Die Kraichgauer are unbeaten in last five clashes with Eintracht Frankfurt (two wins and three draws).
Interestingly, none of last five H2H ties has seen three or more goals.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
We could well witness the end to such low-scoring trend in head to head games between these two sides.
Both Eintracht and Hoffenheim have been thriving in the final third lately and we see a thrilling encounter packed with goals when they clash on Sunday at Commerzbank-Arena.
Alternatively, we’ll shoot for the draw at the 3.40.
