Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Hannover ended a three-loss streak by beating fellow strugglers Nurnberg 2-0 at home in the previous home fixture. However, they instantly returned to the old habits losing 3-0 away at Hoffenheim eight days ago. They now sit second from bottom with just 14 points from 22 league games.
Bouncing back on Sunday against European competitions chasers Eintracht Frankfurt will thus be a very tough task for the hosts.
The Eagles had a very challenging schedule in the last couple of weeks. They drew four on the spin in Bundesliga which can’t quite be regarded as a failure given the opposition included the likes of Werder Bremen, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach along the way.
Adi Hutter’s men still have time to catch up with the top-six sides with a much easier schedule upcoming in the next couple of weeks. The first of these winnable fixtures comes on Sunday afternoon against Hannover at HDI-Arena.
Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
Eintracht can totally rely on the head to head tradition here.
The Eagles won each of last six meetings with Hannover.
Frankfurt claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory when these two sides played each other in late-September at Commerzbank-Arena.
Hannover vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Hannover shipped three or more goals in three of past four league matches. They will be up against a deadly attacking line-up of Frankfurt’s and we can hardly imagine the hosts keeping things tight at the back here.
Such defensive woes of Hannover’s will be the music to the ears of Luka Jovic, Ante Rebic and Sebastien Haller who combined the total of 32 goals between them so far in the season.
We will thus stick with Frankfurt who have both the quality and the head to head tradition on their side. The away win is paid at 1.75 odds, while we will alternatively back the visitors to net two or more goals in the match at 1.72.
