25th September 2020 – 20:30, Olympiastadion, Berlin
Hertha and Eintracht Frankfurt are going to open the German Bundesliga 2nd round with a Friday evening clash. The hosts are looking forward to booking another victory, while the away side will search for its first three points.
Match Preview & Team News
Hertha opened their new Bundesliga campaign with a convincing 4:1 away win over Werder Bremen last weekend. The hosts finished in a safe mid-table position last season, and in this one, they want to go further and challenge one of the continental spots. Bruno Labbadia’s side had a pretty poor finish of the latest campaign, as they lost four times in the final five rounds. Krzysztof Piatek and the lads have been doing quite well in front of the oppositions’ goal, but their defense should have been much tighter. The home side had trouble playing in front of their fans last season, as they suffered eight defeats at Olympiastadion. However, they put an excellent display in the season-opener, and the hosts want to keep up where they left off.
Eintracht Frankfurt managed to snatch just a point from their first match in the campaign as they drew 1:1 against Arminia Bielefeld at home ground. They were positioned only one place above their rivals, being four points ahead of them. One of the best players last season, Mijat Gacinovic, moved to Hoffenheim this summer, while the visitors signed Steven Zuber from the opposite direction. Although Adi Hutter’s side has been pretty efficient, their poor defensive work and 60 goals conceded cost them a better position in the table. Eintracht Frankfurt improved away performances significantly, and they picked up ten points from their last four outings.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a pretty tight match, and both sides have the chance to secure a positive result from this one. However, the hosts look a bit more confident, and they might take all three points from this one.
Goals Market Prediction
Their head to head clashes have been a joy to watch lately, while both sides have been involved in high-scoring matches. We believe neither team will keep its net intact, and both sides should score at least once.
