Our match prediction:
Eintracht Frankfurt continued their downfall in the overall standings after the defeat against Koln (3-1). Die Adler came dangerously close to the relegation zone and are up for a serious battle against relegation. Their first opportunity to record much needed points will be against HSV this Friday. Armin Veh’s side are on a seven-game undefeated run against die Rothosen and such statistics give them realistic hope for a positive outcome in the forthcoming clash. Much will depend on Alexander Meier (12), who has been highly productive of late and is likely to prove a handful for opposition defenders. Hamburg managed to triumph after nine matches without a win (D2 L7), but it does not mean they are out of the crisis. Bruno Labbadia’s men display somewhat better showings when on their travels this term, so we predict an interesting clash at Commerzbank-Arena. We expect a draw with both teams scoring this time out.
