Hamburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Friday, 21st October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Hamburg remains as one of the two sides in Bundesliga without a win after 7 matchdays into the 2016/17 season. It was a huge improvement when they held a strong Gladbach to a 0-0 draw away from home last weekend, which put an end to their 5 match losing streak. They are one of the worst attacking sides in the league after scoring just 2 goals all season. The goal-less stalemate against Monchengladbach was the fifth match in a row that they failed to score this season. With 2 points from 7 matches so far, they stay 17 in the league table, just a point above a win-less Ingolstadt.
Eintracht Frankfurt earned a priceless point when they hosted Bayern Munich last weekend. This was once again a reflection of their strong home form this season as they came from behind twice to deny the record Champions the bragging rights at the Commerzbank-Arena. However, they haven’t fared well in away games this season as they lost twice in their three matches so far. They are currently 8th in the league with 11 points with the help of an unbeaten home record this season.
Hamburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-Head Stats
The teams played out two 0-0 stalemates, both home and away when they met in the 2015/16 Bundesliga season. This helped Frankfurt to extend their unbeaten run over Hamburg to 8 Bundesliga matches, with 4 wins and 4 draws.
Frankfurt are also unbeaten in their last four visits to the Volksparkstadion with 2 wins and 2 draws. Hamburg’s last win over Frankfurt came at this same venue on 2011 by a narrow 1-0 margin.
Hamburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Hamburg are still win-less in the Bundesliga and are coming with a change in head-coach which may hopefully improve the morale in the dressing room. But they are facing a tough opposition in Eintracht Frankfurt who are drawing plaudits with some excellent attacking football this season. But the visiting Frankfurt have lost in 2 of the 3 away games this season with a lone win coming against an Ingolstadt side, very much comparable to Hamburg at the moment.
Also Frankfurt will be boosted by their prolonged unbeaten run against Hamburg and they could at least take a point from this fixture. Hamburg haven’t scored in the last five Bundesliga games, so under 2.5 goals is an alternate choice for this fixture.
Eintracht’s Mexican midfielder Marco Fabian have scored 3 goals in the last 5 matches and played full minutes in all those matches. He is a fan on form and could be backed to score any-time during the match.
