Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction & Betting tips
The Saturday night match at 17:30 in the Bundesliga will be played on Matchday 14 by Hertha BSC Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt. Both teams finished a series last weekend. The Hertha won 2-0 in Hannover and could finally celebrate a threesome after six league games. For Eintracht was the 1: 2 at home against Wolfsburg the first defeat after eleven previously undefeated matches. With 20 points Berlin is in seventh place. The Eintracht has three more points in the account and currently occupies fifth place.
Now it is for the team of coach Pal Dardai against their favorite opponent: against any other current Bundesliga has the “old lady” a better balance. In 60 duels there were 28 victories and only 16 defeats for Hertha. With 108 Bundesliga goals Berlin could also meet against no other club often. Also the home record against the Hessen can be seen with 20 wins, three draws and seven defeats. More home victories (23) made the Berlin only against the HSV.
Last weekend, Berlin ended their series of six league games without a win with a 2-0 win in Hannover. Against the 96er the Old Lady was dominant over almost the entire season and won at the end earned 2-0. The Berlin had the Lower Saxony over long stretches of the ball and thereby lurking for counter-chances and ball losses. For a long time, however, the guests lacked precision and consistency. Significantly, the lead fell to a corner. After the lead Berlin got more rooms, but could not play the counterattack properly. Coach Dardai switched from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2 for the game. After ten goals conceded in the past three games, it was also hugely important for the Hertha that you could once again play to zero.
Whether the coach against Frankfurt remains at 4-4-2, is still open. The concord would have another offensive and speed. You have to be prepared for that, said Dardai. With eleven points, Hertha is the fifth-best home team in the league. So far, one had to accept only one defeat in the Olympic Stadium. In Berlin, they are also pleased about the recovery of Marko Grujic. In the five games in which the Serb was in the starting lineup, the Hertha remained unbeaten. An ankle ligament tear and capsule tear in September put Liverpool’s loan on hold. But against Hoffenheim (3: 3) and in Hanover Grujic was back on the court. The figure eight is the link between offensive and defensive, which the Berliners lacked in previous years in the central office. Dardai has to get away with Eintracht without Dilrosun, Luckassen, Gersbeck, Kade, Klünter, Rekik and Stark.
Last weekend, Eintracht had to play against VfL Wolfsburg. Against flexible and well-organized wolves, the SGE had problems with the counter-hedge. In case of loss of the ball, the team of coach Adi Hütter left too much room between the midfield and the defenders. After the 0: 1 in the 31st Minute, the hosts were also missing the rest in the offensive game. Especially in the last third lacked the necessary precision and penetration. Even before the match, the coach had had a bad foreboding and said that his team must always go to the limit. If you do that, you’re really good. But if you only lose ten percent, everyone can beat the harmony.
The coach was still not dissatisfied with his team. It was a great fight, work and not a bad game. However, one acted too negligent and allowed too many counterattacks. The elf was not as handy and consistent as last. But at least one draw would have been possible. Thus came for the Hessen a sensational series with 31 points from the last eleven competitive matches to an end. So far, the triangle with Ante Rebic, Sebastien Haller and Luka Jovic had caused a lot of furore in the penalty areas of the opponents. Luka Jovic is at the top of the scorers list with ten goals together with Paco Alcacer. In the away table, the Hessians ranked fourth with 13 points. In the Eintracht missing on Saturday night Abraham, Allan, Chandler, Paciencia and Torro. Carlos Salcedo, on the other hand, could celebrate his comeback.
