Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha Berlin
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt am Main).
Eintracht Frankfurt halted their push for the Champions League football for the next season by claiming just one point from past two league rounds. They are now just two points above Borussia Monchengladbach in fifth place and desperately need a victory on Saturday afternoon against Hertha BSC at Commerzbank-Arena.
The Eagles were unlucky to concede a last-gasp equalizer on Monday night away at VOLKSWAGEN-ARENA. John Brooks scored the 90th-minute leveller to make it 1-1 in their clash with Wolfsburg. Adi Hutter’s men are looking ahead of a very complicated schedule with two Europa League semi-final legs against Chelsea and a tough domestic fixture with Bayer Leverkusen. A potential failure here against out-of-form Hertha would definitely be a serious blow to their ambitions in the most important part of the season.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head
Frankfurt are playing against the tradition here as they struggled to pull off results in recent meetings with the Old Lady.
The Eagles lost three of past four ties against Hertha, including this season’s 1-9 loss in the capital.
Just one of past four head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
In spite of the mentioned tradition in the latest set of head to head ties between these two outfits, we can only see the home win as a potential outcome here. Hertha practically have nothing to play for in four remaining matches of the campaign.
On top of this, Pal Dardai’s squad really struggled to grab results of late. They took only one point from last six league affairs and they scored no more than one goal in past four along the way.
Frankfurt were on a three-win streak in their own backyard before a shocking 1-3 defeat to Augsburg two weeks ago. The clash with Hertha is a perfect opportunity for them to return to winning ways and we’ll back highly-motivated hosts to clinch the spoils on Saturday afternoon at Commerzbank-Arena.
