Eintracht Frankfurt vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
Eintracht Frankfurt is unbeaten in their maiden clash of a league campaign over the past four seasons in their schedule and has avoided conceding any goals in the process.
We can expect the host to carry on their unbeaten streak in the schedule as they are facing a promoted team in the opening match.
Albeit in a lower tier, 2. Bundesliga winners Arminia Bielefeld lost none of their last 16 league clashes last term, with seven of the nine wins in that sequence being accompanied by a clean sheet.
But with the home ground advantage backing the Eagles, the visitor is not likely to keep a clean sheet in the match. Moreover, we can expect a high-scoring affair at Commerzbank-Arena.
The Eagles enjoy the ground advantage and are likely to open their attack towards the promoted side before the latter can build their play. So, the host is likely to win in either half of the game, which is why the tips for that result will probably be a suitable option in the game.
Besides, Bielefeld hasn’t won against the host in the last six h2h meetings. That’s why backing the home team for a win is probably the best bet in the game, along with the tip for over 2.5 goals in the encounter to yield decent returns for the punters.
