Red-Hot Eintracht Frankfurt hits the road to meet Werder Bremen and to continue its excellent streak of matches. The Eagles are playing superbly, and it seems that Luka Jovic’s arrival boosted the morale in the locker room. Adolf Hutter’s side is playing superbly, and for the moment, there isn’t a better team in Germany. Werder is inconsistent, and is rarely winning. The River Islanders sit above the relegation line, but just five points away from the first team in the red zone.
Werder Bremen (+320) lost the last match in Bundesliga on the road against Hoffenheim, 4-0, which was the first defeat for them after four games, including a win in DFB Pokal. However, once looking only at the league events, Werder’s situation is pretty complicated.
The club from Bremen has one win, and two draws and defeats in the previous five meetings, which is the main reason for them being just five points away from Arminia Bielefeld, the first team in the relegation area.
Werder isn’t playing well at home at all, and so far this season, they would win more points on the road than at Weserstadion, 10-13. Also, the majority of games at this venue ended with low efficiency, to be precise, the previous five all saw under 2.5 goals.
Eintracht Frankfurt (-120) didn’t lose in the past 11 Bundesliga games, winning nine of them, and recording two draws, while scoring twice in each event. If they stay unbeaten in tonight’s event or net twice again, that would be a new record for this club.
Their matches on the road are exciting to watch, with 42 goals in 11 games which is by far the highest average in the league. There are no particular calculations in Eagles’ game, they just attack and pressure the rivals. Luka Jovic is back, with the Serb immediately starting to contribute.
In the past 10 Eintracht played, just two games haven’t seen both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. By the way, we need to add that Eintracht defeated Bayern Munich last week, 2-1.
Augustinsson, Erras, and Plogmann are all out for the hosts due to an injury.
N’Dicka is the only one who is ineligible for the Eagles, as all other of their players are in the protocol for tonight.
Head to Head Matches
Eintracht hasn’t lost to Werder in the last five matches across all competitions, posting two wins and three draws. During the previous season, the first event at Weser saw a routine triumph of the visiting side, 0-3. The second clash, the one that took place following the restart, ended 1-1.
There is an obvious difference in form between these two teams. Werder is far from its best, while on the other side, Eintracht plays excellent football, strictly relying upon furious offense. Their two or more goals in the last 11 events are simply forcing us to bet on their win tonight, especially in the situation when Werder isn’t that consistent. Odds on Eintracht’s success are not that bad at all, -120, and that is our pick for the premier match of Bundesliga’s round 23.
