Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
It’s crunch time in the Bundesliga, and teams are under huge pressure to deliver on promises to fans. For Wolfsburg, a usual presence in the top-tier of the German league, this season has been underwhelming. Currently, they are in 9th spot and needs to jump at least five places if they are to be counted in for next year’s Champions League.
Frankfurt is in the top four and will have to keep Monchengladbach at bay for the next five match-days to see their efforts for the whole season become fruitful. The fact that the latter is taking on Leipzig in their next game gives hope to Frankfurt, and they will try to put some distance between themselves, which would come in handy down the road.

Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
With just 15 more points to play for, it’s the judgment time of the season. Wolfsburg is at home, and this Monday, the team will greatly depend on the home advantage to dole out a favorable result. While they need to make up a difference of seven points to get to Champions League (maybe a tough ask), Europa is just two points above. For this prestigious bunch of players, one of the two is a must.
Frankfurt needs to defend their place in the top-four with some good performances in the next few weeks. Their upcoming sensation and striker Luca Jovic has vowed that he will lead the team to Champions League and has already committed to the management with a new contract.
As such, a fierce, competitive game is in order. Moreover, most encounters between these teams have produced sparks. Nine of the last twelve overall meetings had goals at either end of the pitch, while nine of the last eleven at this venue had the same stat as well. Going on, while Frankfurt is higher in the table, Wolfsburg has found the back of the net in every home h2h tie bar one.
Finally, Wolfsburg managed two or more goals in seven of their last nine home ties, whereas Frankfurt did the same in 11 of their last 15 road trips. Count on these teams to dole out a high-scoring thriller.
