Eintracht Frankfurt vs Freiburg Prediction & Betting tips
Both Eintracht Frankfurt and SC Freiburg are going through a long dry spell these days. The Hessians have been waiting for another three for five match days. In the Black Forest there are even six winless league games in series. Both teams have lost their way to success. For Christian Streich’s group, which had been on the Champions League course for a long time, there is currently a gap of 16 points in fourth place.
Meanwhile, the eagles even have to worry about relegation. They still have a catch-up game against Bremen, but after the results of the weekend the lead on the relegation place has shrunk to four points.
Overall, this is also understandable, because with Frankfurt against Freiburg the forecast must take into account that the SBU is the sixth best home team in the Bundesliga, while the Black Forest in the distance could only win four of their 14 matches. However, momentum also plays a role. The Adler lost the last two home games in a row.
That doesn’t make it easy to place a bet on the outcome of the game at Frankfurt versus Freiburg, which is why we prefer a different betting market. Already in the first leg goals in the 1-0 home win of Baden-Württemberg were rather in short supply.
Why we come to this judgment, we explain in the following analysis of this game of match day 28. Further analyzes and betting recommendations for the English Week in the top floor of German football are available in the category Betting Tips Bundesliga.
Not only has Eintracht Frankfurt not won in five games, the Eagles have even lost the last five league games. Zero out of 15 possible points means a real low flight in the table, where the SBU only holds 14th place after the 27th matchday.
The relegation specter is thus dealt with by the team that advanced to the semi-finals of the Europa League a year ago and could only be prevented from entering the final by penalty shootout from the eventual overall winner Chelsea FC. It is all the more important that the Hessen get back on the curve as quickly as possible.
First of all, the defensive has to stabilize again. After the 1-3 home defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach last weekend, there was a 2-5 defeat at Bayern Munich. In the last five defeats, Eintracht conceded an incredible 18 goals – an average of 3.6 goals per game.
This is particularly surprising because currently only the failure of attacker Gonçalo Paciência is certain. However, Adi Hütter recently had to do without captain David Abraham and Stefan Ilsanker, who also play leading roles on the defensive. In addition to both, there is currently a small question mark in the run-up to the home game against the Black Forest.
However, if both of them are operational, the SBU coach can send his best team to the field, especially since Dominik Kohr can return to the starting line-up after the yellow card suspension in Munich. Against this background, it is quite understandable that the bookmakers’ odds in Frankfurt versus Freiburg swing towards the home side.
However, the home gloss of the Hesse has lost some of its radiance. Three days ago there were 21 out of 33 possible points in their own stadium, after the two defeats against Union Berlin and Gladbach it was only 21 out of 39 points.
In order to avert the negative trend, not only must the defensive line be zero again, but the attack must also increase. Paciência is injured and his representatives André Silva and Bas Dost each manage only five goals this season. The fact that Martin Hinteregger is currently a defender is the most successful goal scorer of the SBU, so it looks deeply.
For the first third of the season, SC Freiburg was one of the big surprise teams in the Bundesliga. The Black Forest set a new personal starting record and were on a direct starting spot for the UEFA Champions League for several matchdays.
Only Christian Streich never wanted to know anything about it and almost mantraously pointed out that the end of the season would be settled. And what is then to be booked is currently difficult to predict. Only the premier class is likely to be unrealistic, now 16 points behind in fourth place.
However, the descent is anything but realistic – and this can certainly be seen as extremely positive. After all, the reverse is 16 points ahead of a direct relegation zone and a comfortable cushion of 13 points on the relegation zone. The kickers from Breisgau, who now have just as many defeats as victories (ten each) after the somewhat surprising 0-1 home defeat against Werder Bremen, could recently even afford a negative series. There are currently only two points missing from the starting position for the Europa League.
Only two points, by the way, that is also the result of the Baden-Württemberg team from the past six match days, on which there were home defeats against relegation-threatened teams such as Düsseldorf and Bremen. Already in January the sport club had surprisingly lost at home to cellar child Paderborn.
So in Frankfurt versus Freiburg, must the tip count that the Black Forest made opposing opponents again and again available as build-up opponents? Not necessarily. It should be clear, however, that Christian Streich will certainly not come to the Commerzbank-Arena with the crowbar in his luggage, but will again be looking for a stable defense.
