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

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.

They are third in the table and eight points off the top of the table. They are sharing fifth place in the table with Bayer Leverkusen and a win would get them closer to 4th placed Leipzig. Mnchengladbach will be tough to defeat though. The Commerzbank Arena crowd will want another good result at home after a draw with Borussia Dortmund at the start of February. Still, Eintracht are strong at home and it will take effort to beat them there. They might be good for a point here. After a 1:0 victory in Leverkusen, they won 2:0 at Schalke in the round before last. The early Sunday kick-off time is reserved for Eintracht Frankfurt and Mnchengladbach. The visitors will be confident as well after two back to back away wins. The home side has only lost twice in Frankfurt over the last ten matches. And they are a much better defensive team. Eintracht have drawn four out of their last six games.

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.

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.

Correct Score Prediction: Monchengladbach 2-0 Frankfurt

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.

They drew 0-0 at home to Monchengladbach to start the month before losing 1-0 away to Cologne. Eintracht Frankfurt have one win, two losses, and two wins in their last five matches. At the weekend, they got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win over Augsburg. A 2-2 draw at home to Werder Bremen was then followed up with a 3-1 loss away to Dortmund.

They have beaten Bayer Leverkusen and taken points form Bayern and Hertha Berlin already this term; this is not a side to be underestimated. In contrast Frankfurt will be delighted with the manner in which they have started the campaign, and just two defeats in eight starts means they are comfortably housed in mid-table rather than looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone.

Gladbach have been creating and converting a lot of shots on goal, but their approach has left goalkeeper Yann Sommer exposed. Our prediction: a 2-1 Gladbach win. Well, it makes goals at both ends look a good option here. And what does that all mean? 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%). 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.

Goalscorers

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. Such figures do not bode well. However, theyve generally struggled to put their best foot forward in an attacking sense when playing on the road. 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.
