Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).
Eintracht Frankfurt look to have finally found the wanted rhythm after a sloppy start to the new Bundesliga campaign. The Eagles bagged consecutive demolishing wins in last seven days netting four goals past both Hannover and Lazio in the process.
The 4-1 win over the Reds last weekend was only their second victory of the league campaign. It was backed up with a beautiful attacking showing on Thursday evening when Adi Hutter’s side stormed past Italian Lazio also 4-1 in the second round of Europa League.
Maintaining such an impressive form will be quite a big challenge for the visitors given they are about to take on the Champions League hopefuls Hoffenheim on Sunday afternoon at WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
- Hoffenheim have a positive head to head record against the Eagles.
- Die Kraichgauer lead the head to head tie five wins ahead of 19th clash with Eintracht.
- Hoffenheim won 4, drew 4 and lost just 1 of 9 home matches against the Eagles.
- Interestingly, none of last six H2H outings saw three or more goals scored.
Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Such low-scoring head to head trend could easily come to an end on Sunday given both sides’ style at the start of the season. Both Hoffenheim and Frankfurt tend to score and concede loads.
All of nine games Hoffenheim played so far in the season in all competitions saw goals at both ends. The same scenario happened in all of Frankfurt’s last seven matches across competitions.
The BTTS is a banker bet at 1.50, while you can also take the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS pick at 1.72. As for the match-winner, it can easily go either way which is why we will avoid outcome bets. Die Kraichgauer did lose last two games, but they had a much tougher opposition in the process (RB Leipzig and Manchester City).
The alternative bet will thus be Over 1.5 goals in the first half at the odds of 2.20.
Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Bet Tips
