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

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.

He has saved the second most shots of any keeper in the Bundesliga, but even that hasnt been enough to stop them conceding in fact, Gladbach have kept just one clean sheet this season and both teams have scored in five of Gladbachs last seven at home(71%). And what does that all mean? Gladbach have been creating and converting a lot of shots on goal, but their approach has left goalkeeper Yann Sommer exposed. Frankfurts Sebastien Haller (pictured) has scored in all but one Bundesliga game so far this season, so youd fancy him for a goal, but given Gladbachs strong home form and Frankfurts awful away form (see statistics) you have to fancy the hosts to take three points. Our prediction: a 2-1 Gladbach win. Well, it makes goals at both ends look a good option here.

And they are a much better defensive team. The early Sunday kick-off time is reserved for Eintracht Frankfurt and Mnchengladbach. They are third in the table and eight points off the top of the table. Eintracht have drawn four out of their last six games. After a 1:0 victory in Leverkusen, they won 2:0 at Schalke in the round before last. The home side has only lost twice in Frankfurt over the last ten matches. The visitors will be confident as well after two back to back away wins. Mnchengladbach will be tough to defeat though. The Commerzbank Arena crowd will want another good result at home after a draw with Borussia Dortmund at the start of February. Still, Eintracht are strong at home and it will take effort to beat them there. They are sharing fifth place in the table with Bayer Leverkusen and a win would get them closer to 4th placed Leipzig. They might be good for a point here.

Eintracht Frankfurt should be in good spirits ahead of Wednesday. He has been one of their most dangerous attacking assets over the past year and should help improve Frankfurts attacking numbers no team has had fewer shots on goal than the Eagles (28). Sundays1-1 draw at home to RB Leipzig came just a few days after an impressive Europa League win against Marseille, if not only for the fact that they did so after being down to 10-men. Coach Adi Hutter has some big decisions to make here though, both in terms of offense and defense. On the negative side, center backs Timothy Chandler and Carlos Salcedo as well as left-back Jetro Willems are all missing from Eintrachts back line (see team news), but on the positive side, Croatian World Cup star Ante Rebic is an option after making his first appearance of the season off the bench over the weekend.

Correct Score Prediction: Monchengladbach 2-0 Frankfurt

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. 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. However, theyve generally struggled to put their best foot forward in an attacking sense when playing on the road. Such figures do not bode well.

They will desperately need him to produce chances for them- and to bury them- if they have a shot at advancing. Saturday's win was a huge one, and it was inspired by the 27 year old's two goals. Since his return, they've looked much more like a threat. To start the season, they were in the top three. That all changed when he was injured as the side fell down the table. Whenever Frankfurt have won matches, it's largely been because of the goals of Mexican international midfielder Marco Fabian.

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.

They are third in the table and eight points off the top of the table. They are sharing fifth place in the table with Bayer Leverkusen and a win would get them closer to 4th placed Leipzig.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Mgladbach PICK

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.

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.
