Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Frankfurt’s five-win streak came to an end last weekend when they surprisingly fell 1-2 at home to Wolfsburg. It was their first defeat in 12 games in all competitions.
Nevertheless, we can say the Eagles are one of the most pleasant surprises of the season so far in Bundesliga. They sit 5th in the league ladder, three points clear off Saturday’s rivals Hertha.
The trip to the capital will represent a tricky challenge for Adi Hutter’s men. Hertha will head into the match high on confidence after beating Hannover 0-2 on the road seven days ago.
Bosnian forward Vedad Ibisevic took his league tally to six as he notched the second goal of the game at HDI Arena.
Pal Dardai generally has an intriguing attacking line-up with the likes of Salomon Kalou, Ondrej Duda, Matthew Leckie, Valentino Lazaro, Davie Selke and Vedad Ibisevic who are all well capable of finding the back of the net.
