Paderborn vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview
Frankfurt frankly might not get another chance to get back into their groove. True, they were one of the best teams in Germany the last season, and even had made deep runs into the Europa League.
But this time around, they are on a course to undo all that goodwill. They cannot afford to drop anymore points, and in this crunch situation, a fixture against the dead-last placed team in the table could help them a lot.
Paderborn vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Paderborn were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on one of the toppers Monchengladbach. And sure enough, the top-tier squad registered a win, along with a clean sheet.
Meanwhile, Frankfurt will be cursing the manner they lost the last game week at home. The team had a 2-0 lead at home, against FC Koln, by the half-hour mark. But the guests managed to score four goals in a row to take back the lead, and the game.
This Sunday, in regards to result, consider that Paderborn are the worst team in the entire competition. They are rightfully placed in the 18th spot, in a table that have 18 teams.
They have also conceded the third-most number of goals this league season, and scored the second-least. They have also had a total of two wins in their entire league campaign, and with four points from their eight home games, are officially the worst team in front of the home crowd.
Moreover, in 2019-20, they have registered just two wins in total, and both had come against weak members of the league. And at home, they were winless in nine of their last ten appearances, and even lost seven of those.
In addition to all these information, take into consideration the extreme struggles of the bottom-most Paderborn, along with the fact that they are new entrants into the top flight – and Enitracht Frankfurt are expected to post three points this Sunday.
However, the home advantage of Paderborn; along with their desperation to shed the tag of relegation-battlers; plus the current sufferings of Eintracht – would make it hard for the guests to keep a clean sheet this Sunday.
Also do note that Frankfurt conceded two or more goals in four of their previous five fixtures, and have kept just two clean sheets in total this whole season on the road. Finally, understand that only once have Paderborn failed to find a goal at home, too, this campaign.
Consequentially, the Both Teams to Score bet for this game looks logical.
