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

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.

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.

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.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach H2H Last Matches

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. 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. 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? Frankfurt are, however, no pushovers, making the price on Gladbach to win look somewhat short. Perhaps they can even make a return to European football by the end.

The hosts have looked dodgy at the back of late, but theyve generally offered lots going forward at this venue and are up against a Gladbach side that has found it tough to keep things tough away from home. In the betting, Frankfurt to Score Over 1.5 Goals stands out as a viable option. With Frankfurt averaging a pleasing 1.9 expected goals for at home and with the visitors giving up an average of 1.68 on their travels, backing the hosts to notch at least twice at the current price offers punters a smidgen of value.

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.

Monchengladbach vs Eintracht Betting Tips and Odds

We might expect the hosts to win here on any given day, but with an important game just four days away we have to question their focus for this one. Frankfurt will give it everything too, so a draw is the most obvious outcome. Expert Verdict: Borussia Monchengladbach are an excellent side - you don't qualify for the Champions League via the Bundesliga if you aren't, but their comparatively thins quad has left them reeling domestically as they focus their attentions on continental action. Frankfurt meanwhile have been playing with the sense of freedom that comes from overachieving on many pundits' pre-season predictions that they would be relegated; the 2-2 draw with Bayern was testament to that.

The hosts, as class an act as they are on their day, are perhaps not the best candidates for this if their minds are elsewhere. You see, the bookmakers are rather disrespectful of the visitors bright start to the campaign they have only lost 25% of their matches remember, and so the conclusion we can draw is that it takes something special to beat them.

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.
