Our football match prediction:
Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to climb to top five in the Bundesliga standings when they host Freiburg at their Commerzbank-Arena on Matchday 18. Die Adler are enjoying a very successful season, but they need to keep on winning if they are to book their place in European competitions. A man to watch in the home team will be Serbian rising star Luka Jovic, who impressed in the first half of the season. Freiburg, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but they struggle on the travels, therefore, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling die Adler’s party at Commerzbank-Arena. Christian Streich’s troops were beaten by Eintrachh Frankfurt in the first half of the season, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts, who are eyeing their sixth home win of the season.
