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

After drawing in the Europa League on Thursday evening, despite facing ten men for most of the contest, Adi Htters men will be looking to regain the winning thread. As theyre now unbeaten since returning from the winter break, nobody can say that Frankfurt are easy to get the better of, though Sundays hosts have not been finding it easy to get their heads in front, as theyve drawn each of their last four matches.

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.

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.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach H2H Last Matches

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.

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.

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 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.

Monchengladbach vs Eintracht Prediction

As theyre now unbeaten since returning from the winter break, nobody can say that Frankfurt are easy to get the better of, though Sundays hosts have not been finding it easy to get their heads in front, as theyve drawn each of their last four matches. After drawing in the Europa League on Thursday evening, despite facing ten men for most of the contest, Adi Htters men will be looking to regain the winning thread.

Another positive performance against one of the most in-form sides in the league, with summer signed Alassane Plea scoring his second of the season, means that Dieter Hecking is unlikely to make many changes. Borussia Monchengladbach suffered their first defeat of the 18/19 campaign away to the in-form Hertha Berlin over the weekend. Despite this, youd have to think that coach Dieter Hecking is content enough with his teams start to the new Bundesliga season. Seven points from three outings against Leverkusen (2-0 win), Augsburg (1-1 draw) and Schalke (2-1 win) is no doubt something Gladbach would have taken when the fixtures were announced in fact, those results mark their best start to a Bundesliga season since 2011/12 and although they did lose 4-2 on Saturday, they did leave the German capital with their heads held high.
