Eintracht Frankfurt vs Nurnberg
Date: Sunday, 17 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt look to have found just the wanted form in the most important part of the season. They climbed up to 5th place in the Bundesliga ladder with a thread of three consecutive wins. The Eagles sit just three points away of 4th-placed RB Leipzig and they will be highly motivated to keep the stellar form going on Sunday afternoon against the rock-bottomed Nurnberg.
The visitors head into the match in a completely opposite mood. They have not been pulling up any trees of late and are yet to pick up their maiden victory in 2019. Der Cub lost seven and drew two of nine matches across competitions this year. They did have a super challenging schedule with fixtures against the likes of Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig in last two weeks, but Eintracht are opponents of the same kind which is why it is really hard to expect anything form the visitors here.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Nurnberg: Head-to-head
The head to head record also speaks firmly in Eintracht’s favour.
The Eagles are undefeated in last seven head to head meetings with Der Club.
These two likes met each other in May 2016 in relegation play-offs when Eintracht secured a 2-1 win on aggregate.
Both teams scored in four of past five head to head affairs.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Nurnberg: Prediction
Nurnberg have the weakest away record in the entire league. They only took two points (0 wins, 2 draws and 10 defeats in 12 matches) from 12 away fixtures this season. Der Club made a managerial change in February, but the appointment of Boris Schommers did not shift team’s fortunes around as mentioned above.
This tie has a huge importance for the hosts who bagged three goals in each of last three Bundesliga wins. We can’t back anything other bur a comprehensive home win here. Frankfurt’s victory is a genuine banker at the odds of 1.40.
