Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hertha Berlin Prediction & Betting tips
On Saturday afternoon, April 21, 2018 at 15:30, Eintracht Frankfurt awaits for the 31st Bundesliga game day in the local Commerzbank Arena Hertha BSC. The Eintracht lost in the Bundesliga last weekend in Leverkusen and slipped in the table out of the European Cup places with 46 points in the account. The Berlin Hertha, however, prevailed in their own stadium against Cologne and climbed high in ninth place with now 39 Pünktchen on the credit side.
Frankfurt was a guest in Leverkusen last weekend. Especially in the early days, the Hessen made the rooms tight, but still conceded the team of coach Niko Kovac in the 20th minute conceding goal by Brandt. Good three minutes later, Frankfurt found the right answer through Fabian – 1: 1 equalizer (23). After the break Leverkusen was clearly the better team and had opportunities to re-lead by Bailey and Hradecky. In the closing stages Volland advanced with his hat-trick (71., 77., 88.) to the Matchwinner – 4: 1 Leverkusen. A completely deserved victory for the Rhinelander.
In the Bundesliga Frankfurt won only one of the last five Bundesliga games and collected in this period three bankruptcies. However, the SBU has been unbeaten in eight home games (five wins). The last encounter before home crowd ended with a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim. Before that, the Eintracht won five times in a row in their own living room.
During the week, Frankfurt played in the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal and surprisingly switched Schalke 04 off (1-0). The victory will certainly have given additional self-confidence. Simon Falette (yellow card suspension) and injured Carlos Salcedo, Ante Rebic and Omar Mascarell are out of action for the home game against Hertha.
The Berlin had last weekend the bottom club Cologne guest and after just 20 seconds Kalou almost the lead for the “old lady” succeeded, but FC goalkeeper Horn steered the ball just around the post. However, the goats did not hide and even went through Bittencourt with a 1-0 lead (29). In halftime one, the capital club was too harmless and lacked pace in their own game. After the break Hertha BSC then turned the encounter within three minutes by the double by Selke – 2: 1 (49., 52.). The guests seemed shocked and Hertha did nothing more than necessary. In the end, however, the Berliners were also lucky that Cordoba forgot the huge opportunity to 2: 2 after losing the ball from Stark (87).
Coach Dardai’s side only lost one of the last five Bundesliga games and scored eight points in that period. Away reads the statistics of Hertha quite well. Thus, the Dardai team has lost only two of the last six away games (in Mönchengladbach and Schalke). Victories recorded the capital club in Hamburg, Leverkusen and the strong point win in Munich. A big part of the away win has the strong offensive away (16 goals) – Only Bayern defended better away. Similarly reads the overall balance – third best defense of the Bundesliga. Palko Dardai and Niklas Stark are injured for the tough away game in Frankfurt.
