Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig prediction
Even though it didn't look like so, players of Eintracht Frankfurt improved strongly and reacted in the best possible way last weekend when the team visited Hoffenheim.
A bit unexpectedly, they ended up winning the match with a 1:2 result. It's not that they have shown brilliant performance, however, they presented themselves in a very effective game, while Hoffenheim wasn't as creative as usual despite the ball possession.
This was their first victory after seven rounds in Bundesliga and just one point taken during that phase. They are now ten points behind the European zone in an overall quite disappointing season for now regarding Bundesliga.
Defensive midfielder Torro (3/0) remains sidelined being injured. Doubtful are offensive midfielder Kamada (16/0) and defensive midfielder Fernandes (9/0).
RB Leipzig continued where they stopped in December, winning at home against St Pauli 3:1. However, the team didn't enter the game that well, conceding a goal in the tenth minute via Bulter, against the flow of the match.
The home team looked better in the first halftime, however, upped the tempo a lot in the second and didn't need much in order to revert the scoreline.
Thanks to goals from Werner and Sabitzer it was their lead already after twelve minutes in the second half, while Werner scored his second towards the end of the game.
RB Leipzig now continues to lead the table with four points more than second-placed Bayern, so a victory here remains a top priority.
The guests continue to miss injured central back Orban (9/1) and midfielder Kampl (4/1). Forward Cunha (10/0) is away on international duty, while central back Konate (5/0) remains doubtful.
RB Leipzig is a favorite in this one and with the way they play, they shouldn't have a really difficult task this time. Eintracht did win in the previous round, however, there's no certain improvement seen in their game plan.
Still, they could easily score a goal as well. Leipzig to win and more than a couple of goals scored during the match should be the most probable outcome.
