Eintracht Frankfurt will face Hoffenheim at Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt, at German Bundesliga 24th Round. Eintracht Frankfurt against Hoffenheim is the match with big interest after their previous matches at German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt this season is looking very good, as they stand at 6th position in Bundesliga. Moreover, they reached 1/8 Final of the Europa League by winning against Donetsk Shakhtar. They are unbeaten in 8 matches in a row. The team can still compete for getting into the Champions League after catching up with Leipzig and take the 4th position. The team is now on the rise, and this is very good because the season is near to completion and they need to give all the strength and show all abilities against all rivals.

All main team players are fit and ready to face the next opponents, however, Chandler, Torro and Gelson Fernandes will miss next match. This season L. Jovic is the best striker in the league, as he scored already 15 goals and made 5 assists. Moreover, S. Haller was involved in 19 goals in Bundesliga and is an important part of the first eleven. There are a lot of rumors about the big interest of the main squad players by top Europe’s clubs.

Eintracht is very strong at counter attacks, aerial duels, and finishing scoring chances. Very likely that at home ground team will create many scoring chances, will dominate in the air and score from fast break situation. However, Frankfurt is facing troubles at keeping possession of the ball and avoiding offside.

 

Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim by their style of game is very similar to Valencia from Spain, as these clubs like to play draws very often. In last 18 matches, Hoffenheim played 10 times a draw. They now stand at 8th position in Bundesliga and have only 3 point difference with the next opponent. They must be very motivated because they can overtake or even catch up with rivals. In the last 10 away matches, surprisingly they lost only once against Dusseldorf. The team dropped out of the Champions League and did not qualify to the Europa League because they took the last place in the group.

All main squad players are fit and ready to fight against Eintracht Frankfurt. Players have a great opportunity to prove themselves and beat an even opponent.

Hoffenheim are great this season at creating long shot opportunities, chances through individual skills and creating scoring chances. However, they are facing problems at stopping opponents from creating chances, protecting the lead and aerial duels. Very likely that Julian Nagelsmann’s players will try to control the possession, attack through the middle and take a lot of shots.
