Eintracht Frankfurt vs VfL Wolfsburg
German Bundesliga – 2017/18 Season
Date: Saturday, 26th August 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt.
Following the disappointing season opener, the Wolves will be hoping to snatch a point from Commerzbank-Arena, the home of Eintracht Frankfurt.
The home side is troubled with several injuries – with key players such as Fabian and Meier out, it is quite difficult to find the net. Their goalless stalemate with SC Freiburg is an example – in the second half, neither of the two sides managed to shoot on target. Frankfurt are lacking a creator, and in the upcoming period it will be difficult to imagine them winning with scoring two goals or more. Therefore, saving their goal is going to be crucial against Wolfsburg.
Eintracht acquired Kevin-Prince Boateng, but despite his expertise, the history has shown that it’s incredibly difficult to inspire the Ghanaian on the long term.
In Matchday 1, Eintracht fielded 11 foreigners.
The visitors are expected to face huge problems this season which was perfectly illustrated in their first match with Borussia Dortmund. They had zero shots on target and the team who heavily relies on one player is signing its own doom. Mario Gomez is one of the best strikers in the last decade without a doubt, but he is unable to carry his team throughout the season especially if there’s no one to assist him.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head
Frankfurt won only one out of their last nine games against Wolfsburg. Last season, the Eagles were the only teams that suffered two defeats from Wolfsburg. Daniel Didavi will be aiming to keep the perfect score in the matches against Eintracht as he scored in each of his three clashes with Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg: Predictions
Both sides will face the offensive woes until the players create chemistry, so a low-scoring affair is expected. Also, it would be a huge surprise if both teams manage to score a goal.
