2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday 1st September 2018
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
The beginning of the German Bundesliga saw Eintracht Frankfurt claim a valuable win over Freiburg away from home and they were able to run out 2-0 winners.
Some local press called the win lucky as Freiburg had 22 attempts on goal, but in fairness Frankfurt were more clinical.
The side with already 3 points claimed will play their first home game of the season when they take on Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon.
Werder Bremen had to make do with a draw on the opening day of the season and that came at home against Hannover.
They were heading for defeat but scored in the final five minutes to make their fans happy.
For this game the betting is quite close although by virtue of being at home Eintracht Frankfurt have been installed as the favourites.
There is great value to be had though and what should be an open game of football.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
These two teams are very close in quality and so instead of picking a winner especially this early in the season the value seems to be to go with the goals market and the goal scorers market.
The chances of goals in this game is high and that is why we will back both teams to score as our main choice.
The game is set to be a very open one and could be end to end football with many chances for both sides to hit the net.
There is terrific value in the goal scorers market which we will take advantage of.
