Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Sunday, 17 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Borussia Monchengladbach ended their three-win streak with a shocking 0-3 home defeat to Hertha Berlin last weekend. They thus ruined the perfect home record of nine straight wins at BORUSSIA-PARK in this term of Bundesliga. The Foals also fell down to third place in the league standings and are now only four points above RB Leipzig in fourth.
Bouncing back on Sunday afternoon away at Eintracht Frankfurt will be quite a big challenge for Dieter Hecking’s men. Their to-four finish might be in jeopardize with a potential defeat here at Commerzbank-Arena with fixtures against the likes of Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich upcoming in the next couple of weeks.
Frankfurt sit fifth in the ladder and they will be highly motivated to claim the spoils here and get themselves in the race for the Champions League football next term (top-four finish).
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Eintracht lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into 92nd encounter with the Foals.
Frankfurt won 22, drew 11 and lost only 12 of 45 home encounters with Borussia Monchengladbach.
It is interesting to note that only one of past six head to head ties between these two likes saw three or more goals scored.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
The Eagles might have problems because of the fatigue caused by well congested schedule in the last couple of weeks. They had a tough Europa League fixture against Shakhtar Donetsk on the Ukrainian soil (a 2-2 draw) on Thursday and this domestic league tie comes right in the midst of continental double header against Ukrainian heavyweights.
However, Adi Hutter has a solid width in his ranks and we don’t see this as a huge handicap for the hosts, especially knowing that Gladbach produced their worst performance of the season last weekend against Hertha BSC.
We will go for the home win at 2.30 as well as Eintracht to notch two or more goals at 1.83.
