Mgladbach – Eintracht Frankfurt Match Prediction | 27-10-2019 13:00

They have beaten Bayer Leverkusen and taken points form Bayern and Hertha Berlin already this term; this is not a side to be underestimated. In contrast Frankfurt will be delighted with the manner in which they have started the campaign, and just two defeats in eight starts means they are comfortably housed in mid-table rather than looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone.

Borussia are 7th in the Bundesliga rankings for shots on goal (55) but their offensive rise has come at the expense of their defense Gladbach hold the worst defensive record in the top half of the table. Perhaps they can even make a return to European football by the end. Gladbachs performances this season have been better than last, but if Heckings men are going to keep this run going long-term, then theyre going to need to fine tune some areas of their game (or a whole lot of luck). So how does this one look in terms of betting? Well, Borussia Monchengladbach boss Dieter Hecking is starting to get things right going into his third season at the club, and though an 11-1 win over a fifth tier side in the cup and seven points from four matches doesnt mean theyre going to win the league, it absolutely sets a better tone for the season than they have in the last few years. Frankfurt are, however, no pushovers, making the price on Gladbach to win look somewhat short.

Recent Competition Form

Each series has to end once, and thus a brilliant series of Borussia on their field came to its end. The result was 3-0 for the guests from Berlin, and now the question is how much it has shaken them and thrown of the rhythm. The 10th game in M'gladbach has brought the first disappointment and not only that they did not win for the first time, but they also suffered a serious defeat. Their opponent was Hertha, which was not expected because they have defeated even stronger rivals, but this time they simply did not have the luck.

Much of the same can be said for when they held Dortmund to a draw, as well as when they drew against Werder Bremen. Last time out, they were fortunate to earn a draw from Leipzig, as they offered little going forward, recording just 0.22 expected goals for, and provided less than stern resistance. On the face of it, Frankfurt are a tough side to beat, but their recent performances have been anything but encouraging. The fact that their opponents emerged with an expected goal difference of +1.25 tell us that Frankfurt were very lucky to earn a share of the spoils.

Compared to the team that has defeated Schalke in Gelsenkirchen one round before, only Hofmann was in the team instead of Zakaria. Now, Hofmann has some injury problems, so it could easily happen that Zakaria gets on the field from the first minute. Coach Hecking will not make any major changes because of one defeat. Their series of three wins without any draw was interrupted, counting their guest appearances, and it was even more painful that they performed in the strongest team.

Now Trending Football Predictions

Having burst at the professional scene with Sparta Rotterdam at 16, Jetro Willems is now an established senior left-back at PSV and a player who has amassed more than 170 club appearances. Willems is a strong player who represents a huge attacking potential out on the left for his club in addition to his confident and composed performances at the back which are still believed to be one of his weaker spots that still require upgrading.

Sundays visitors will go to Commerzbank-Arena having averaged just 0.97 expected goals for away from home this season, while theyve surrendered an average of 1.68. Such figures do not bode well. However, theyve generally struggled to put their best foot forward in an attacking sense when playing on the road. As for the visitors, well, Gladbach have been a bit hit and miss on their travels this season, but they were victorious in their most recent away match.

Borussia M'gladbach vs Eintracht Betting Tips

Expert Verdict: Both sides are surely safe with four matches left to play in the Bundesliga season and each of them sitting on at least 39 points. Frankfurt have found that tough to do, and they have barely squeezed through against much lesser teams than Monchengladbach so far. Despite these two sides being close in the table, Monchengladbach have to be the favorites because they are at home and because they have been able to score goals of late. Monchengladbach are seven points clear while Frankfurt's nine clear of the drop zone. This should allow them to divert their full attentions to this match as it represents a big chance for both sides to put themselves in the spotlight come the final next month against either Bayern or Dortmund, the two biggest and most high-profile sides in Germany.

They drew 0-0 at home to Monchengladbach to start the month before losing 1-0 away to Cologne. Eintracht Frankfurt have one win, two losses, and two wins in their last five matches. At the weekend, they got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win over Augsburg. A 2-2 draw at home to Werder Bremen was then followed up with a 3-1 loss away to Dortmund.

The round of 16 match was a 1-2 win away to Hannover, and then they hosted Bielefeld in the quarterfinals and came away with a 1-0 win to book their spot in the semi-final. How They Got Here- Eintracht have rode their luck a little to reach this stage. They won on penalties away to FC Magdeb after a 1-1 draw, and then had to win via the same route in the next round against Ingolstadt after a 0-0 draw at home.

Preview, Prediction, Betting Tips

Gacinovic was expectedly on the field instead of Haller, while we now expect three strikers on the field again. On Thursday, they played their first duel of in the sixteen finals of European Cup and this was an unpleasant hosting in Ukraine against Shakhtar. It ended with 2-2, which is a good result, however, they had one player less almost the entire game and they had a lead twice. It was a great opportunity to solve all dilemmas in the first duel, while they have to be very careful in the rematch.

As theyre now unbeaten since returning from the winter break, nobody can say that Frankfurt are easy to get the better of, though Sundays hosts have not been finding it easy to get their heads in front, as theyve drawn each of their last four matches. After drawing in the Europa League on Thursday evening, despite facing ten men for most of the contest, Adi Htters men will be looking to regain the winning thread.
