Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football game at Commerzbank-Arena pits together Eintracht Frankfurt and Hamburger, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. The Eagles aim to book their place in European competitions, whereas die Rothosen are desperate to retain their Bundesliga status. Eintracht Frankfurt are on a five-game losing run in the German top flight and they conceded 2+ goals in each of those five league fixtures. The hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Hamburger, but Sunday’s clash could be the turning point for die Adler. Markus Gidsol’s men proved their worth in a 2-1 victory over Borussia M’gladbach, with the team recording their second straight win in front of home fans. Nonetheless, Hamburger’s away record is anything but good and we predict that they are not going to spoil Eintracht’s party at Commerzbank-Arena. It has to be noted that the Eagles missed several clear-cut chances to score in a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich at the weekend.
