Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Eintracht Frankfurt edged past St Pauli in the previous round of this competition after a brace from Bas Dost was just enough to help his side post a 2-1 scorecard. The hosts have been coping well in their recent clashes in the first division as well, and are currently sporting an impressive three-match unbeaten streak under their belt.

On the other hand, RB Leipzig made light work of Wolfsburg in their respective DFB Pokal clash. The guests slotted six goals in that latter matchup, to which their foes could reply with just one of their own.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have stumbled just once in their last ten fixtures in all competitions. Furthermore, RB Leipzig have been a confident bunch, even on the road this season. Impressively, the guests have been branded as the best away side in the cluster as far as statistics go.

In sharp contrast, Eintracht Frankfurt have come away with the victory just once in their past four games here. Taking into account that RB Leipzig are also playing second fiddle to Bayern back in the top flight, it looks like the hosts are about to bite off more than what they can chew this week.

Be that as it may, Eintracht Frankfurt got the better of this opponent here when the two sides met a fortnight ago. Considering that RB Leipzig have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past four trips here either, back a draw no bet just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, the hosts did well to keep RB Leipzig at bay in their most recent meeting here. However, keeping them out of the final third for a second consecutive time is going to be near herculean.

The visitors have not gone two outings in a row without finding the back of the net this season. Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt have conceded eleven goals from their previous five games here alone.

To top it off, three of their past four h2h meetings at this venue have also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet.By all means, expect goals from either side come Tuesday.
