Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Saturday, 14th October 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: HDI Arena, Hannover.
The two ambitious sides from the upper part of the table will collide at HDI Arena, the home of Hannover who will host Eintracht Frankfurt. Both sides are craving consistency at this point so we could witness a cautious approach from both managers.
The home time has commenced the season stunningly well – they are now fifth on the standings with 12 points accumulated. However, their form is in the decline as they are winless in the last three matches.
Home field advantage is Hannover’s greatest strength – on the home turf, they are yet to concede a single goal. They yielded seven points from three opening home games (W2 D1).
After the slow start of the season, Niko Kovac managed to inspire his team and most importantly, Frankfurt started scoring goals again. In the last five outings they won three times in addition to two defeats.
Eintracht have earned the majority of their points on the road – after four away outings, they have the record of two wins, a draw, and a sole defeat.
Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
The two sides met back in February with the DFB Pokal clash. Frankfurt clinched the 1-2 victory and Hannover will be aiming to show they are worthier now. Three out of the last four matches between the two teams saw three or more goals scored.
Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Hannover’s primary goal in the forthcoming meeting is keeping another clean sheet on the home grass. Keeping the opposition away at HDI Arena will massively boost their chances for survival in the first returning season in the top flight, so Hannover will certainly adapt a wary tactic and rely on counter-attacking.
