Eintracht Frankurt vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt dropped out of top five in the Bundesliga ladder after a tough 0-3 defeat to reigning champions Bayern Munich in their last fixture of 2018.
Die Adler is chasing the top four finish and a Champions League football next term. It is currently four points away which means they can’t afford too many slip-ups against bottom-half opponents in the second half of the season.
Adi Hutter’s men are just about to begin the year with a home tie against such rival as they are to play host to 11th-placed Freiburg at Commerzbank-Arena.
Frankfurt featured in a strong Florida Cup during the short winter break. They had a semi-success there beating Sao Paulo 2-1 and losing 1-0 to Flamengo. They have a strong firepower on disposal in the final third and were especially efficient in front of the home crowd so far in the season. Eintracht notched 19 goals in 8 home matches.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Frankfurt claimed a 0-2 victory on the road when these two likes met each other in late-August at the start of the new campaign.
Freiburg were generally struggling for goals in recent affairs with Die Adler.
The visitors netted just one goal in past three clashes with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Only one of last five H2H outings saw three or more goals scored.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Freiburg: Prediction
Freiburg played two separate 2-2 draws to Mainz 05 during the mid-season. They played hot and cold so far in the campaign, but the head coach Christian Streich generally has reasons to be satisfied with the fact the red zone is seven points away at the moment.
However, the visitors do not have much to hope for here against Champions League hopefuls, especially after they shipped two goals in each of two mid-season tests against the likes of Mainz. They are up against a team with one of the best attacking records in the division here. The home win should be a banker at the odds of 1.60.
