Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt am Main).
Eintracht Frankfurt not only dropped out of the battle for the Champions League football, but a horrendous streak of three consecutive defeats put their Europa League hopes in jeopardize as well. They are now seventh in the Bundesliga standings after claiming just a single point in last five league outings.
Can the Eagles find the way out of the huge crisis on Saturday when they host relegation strugglers Hamburger SV in the final game of the season in front of the home crowd? The visitors were hopeless just a couple of weeks ago, but back-to-back wins over Freiburg and Wolfsburg brought them just two points away from the safe zone.
Christian Titz and his men will thus come into this as the massive form favourites and we would not be shocked to see them making another upset here at Commerzbank-Arena.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV: Head-to-head
Overall, Hamburger SV lead the head to head tie by ten wins ahead of 98th encounter with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Interestingly, three of last five H2H matches ended without goals.
Frankfurt won the remaining four of last seven as HSV are winless in last 11 meetings with the Eagles.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV: Prediction
Bobby Wood and Lewis Holtby were in target in last weekend’s away win over Wolfsburg. This duo, alongside Serbian international Filip Kostic, should really have plenty of space to exploit the obvious holes in Frankfurt’s defensive line on Saturday. The Eagles shipped 11 goals in last three league losses to Bayer Leverkusen, Hertha BSC and Bayern Munich. You can have Hamburger SV to score a goal at 1.36.
Backing gaols at both ends is also a wise call given the hosts will also have an imperative to arrest the dreadful slump in form. The BTTS pick is paid at the 1.61 odds. Braver punters can try with Hamburger SV to net two or more goals at the sky-high 2.75 odds.
