Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to put an end to their four-match winless run in Bundesliga when they host Bochum to their Deutsche Bank Park on Matchday 26. Die Adler were struggling to find their best form before the international break, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Midfielder Sebastian Rode is back from suspension, but defender Tuta is banned for the match. Both Almamy Toure and Jesper Lindstrom miss the game with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, recorded morale-boosting wins over Koln (2-0) and Leipzig (1-0), with the team escaping the relegation zone, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure the Bundesliga survival. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Bochum in each of their last five meetings at Deutsche Bank Park. Danilo Soares is banned for the match, while fellow defender Cristian Gamboa misses out with a knee injury.
