Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV
Eintracht Frankfurt host Hamburger two rounds before the end of German Bundesliga.
Frankfurt will play in the cup final and I think they will give their best there, at least they will try against Bayern to make one more surprising result after they eliminated Schalke in the SFs. Their CL hopes are practically over after they lost three times in a row in the Bundesliga with big results- 4:1 as visitors against Leverkusen, 0:3 at home against Hertha and 4:1 against Bayern Munchen. That's 11 goals in just 3 matches which don't speak good about their momentum form and defense. Yeah, the opposition was good- Leverkusen and Munchen are one of the strongest teams, but if you have real CL ambitions you don't have the right to lose like that totally overplayed. Now they will face totally reborn team of Hamburger which is fighting for its survival in the league and another uspet is knocking on the door.
When Hamburger lost as visitors to Hoffenheim, their fans accepted the fact that Hamburger will have to play one level lower in 2nd Bundesliga from the start of the new season. Sometimes the fate makes strange and almost impossible things to happen and now the whole team of Hamburger are still dreaming about their survival or at least to finish at 16th position and to play play-off matches for their staying in the Bundesliga. They earned two wins in a row against the teams above them in the table- Freiburg and Wolfsburg. It will be so hard to catch Freiburg because they have 5 points advantage and a home match against Augsburg in the last round, but Wolfsburg..they have only 2 points advantage and a hard visit to Leipzig, which team don't make gifts for sure. Leipzig are fighting for EL place, so they will give their best at home against Wolfsburg. That's Hamburger last chance- winning against Frankfurt today and hoping Leipzig to win at home against Wolfsburg. If that happens, everything will be in their own hands in the last round at home against Gladbach, not to wait for other miracles. I am sure Hamburger will start with the same motivation as in their last visit to Wolfsburg when they trashed them 3:1.
Frankfurt confidence is lower for sure after the negative results in the last weeks, also they have more absentees like Makoto Hasebe, who is suspended and Abraham, Salcedo, de Guzman and Ante Rebic are all doubtful. Hamburger will be without Nicolai Muller who is the only important absentee.
After such a negative row of matches for Frankfurt that's one of the worst opponents you can face now trying to stop it. Hamburger will be pretty motivated to win, but sometimes that's not enough, you have to score goals! I see the value with the guests here.
