Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 25 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
The Eagles had missed out on a top-seven spot the last season, and thus do not have the opportunity to represent Germany in any continental competition this year. This surely must be eating away at the squad, and they are surely going after a much better finish to their campaign this time around.
They have built some momentum lately with good performances, and have the edge going into this fixture. However, they did have to settle for a draw in their opener in the Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, their counterparts did win their first game of the season, but have not been that consistent in the past several weeks.
Likely, it’s expected that Frankfurt should be the better team on the pitch this weekend. Still, their problems in defense should deny them a clean sheet.
Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met on the pitch, Adi Hutter’s men won 1-4 on the road. This game was just two months back.
- 11 of the former 18 encounters had goals from both teams.
- Since 1990, only twice have the hosts failed to score goals at this stadium.
- The home team had also registered 11 of the preceding 16 wins at this venue.
Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Bruno Labbadia’s men had lost four of their previous five overall match-ups, and had also lost eight of their last eleven games. They had also conceded four or more goals in two of their former four fixtures, and at home, they have won just thrice from their past ten attempts.
Meanwhile, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their last ten overall matches, and one of these defeats had come in the Europa League.
On top of that, they had also defeated Hertha in an h2h encounter just two months, and that too with a 1-4 scoreline.
For the reasons, expect Eintracht Frankfurt to dominate proceedings at the Olympiastadion this weekend.
Going on though, it needs to be noted that the Eagles have kept just two clean sheets from their past 24 matches, and just once in their former 28 road trips.
And finally, in the past 30 years, only twice have the hosts failed to score goals at this ground in h2h clashes as well.
As such, expect goals to come from both teams this Friday.
