Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After holding Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw at Allianz Arena, Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to regain their spot in top three when they take on Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga round 19. Die Adler produced a fine display in the draw with the Bavarian giants, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. All Eric Ebimbe, Luca Pellegrini, and Marcel Wenig remain on the sidelines with injuries, while the opposition back-line should have France international Kolo Muani at bay as he scored his seventh goal of the season at the weekend.
The capital club, on the other hand, made a slow start to 2023, with the team extending their losing run to three games in the Berlin derby. Sandro Schwarz’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching Eintracht at Deutsche Bank Park. All Agustin Rogel, Jonjoe Kenny, Stevan Jovetic, Chidera Ejuke, and Kelian Nsona are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the visiting side.
