My first match today is from German Bundesliga Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Eintracht Frankfurt
The home team has 31 points, is 11th on the table (18 teams), and 12pts from relegation zone, while the visitors have 40pts, are 6th on table, on Europa league spot, and 6pts from Champions league direct qualification. Historically the recent 3 of the 5 H2H games have featured BTTS matches, and OI expect that with the current ratios of 31/42, and 47/30 goals scored and conceded from 24 matches, both the hosts and visitors have averaged more than 3.0goals per game. I thus expect to see goals today.
Four wins in Düsseldorf’s last five Bundesliga home games (W4, L1) means they will be expect to give a good fight despite playing against one fot eh top teams in the league this season. Eintracht Frankfurt is fighting for theChampions League places and hasn’t lost a competitive fixture this year (W4, D6). Düsseldorf is one of only two teams yet to register a home draw this league campaign (W6, L6).
Hosts are yet to score in the first 15 minutes of any league match this season,, and owe their home victories so far to strong second-half performances. 13 of the hosts 17 goals across those six wins after half-time. Unbeaten in four top-flight away games (W1, D3), Frankfurt have scored an average of 1.67 goals per Bundesliga road trip this campaign, and have been trailing at half-time in just two of their 12 away league games (HT: W4, D6, L2), and have scored 12 of their 20 away goals in the second half of the match.
Düsseldorf’s top league scorer, Dodi Lukebakio (eight goals), is back in scoring form after a 7-game Bundesliga goal drought with a goal against Schalke, though his last three goals were scored in the first half. Luka Jović (15 league goals), the Serbian hitman scored 5 goals in the reverse fixture which Frankfurt won 7-1, so I expect plenty of goals tonight.
In addition to all already said; 26 of 35 goals scored in Dusseldorf's home matches this season have been scored in the 2nd half, while 21 of 34 goals scored in the visitors away matches have been scored in the 2nd half. I go for 2nd-Half OV 1.5 for this one.
