Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hamburger and Eintracht Frankfurt face each other in the opening match of day 8 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Markus Gidsol’s troops failed to score in previous five league matches and they are desperate to record their first win of the season. Former Stuttgart winger Filip Kostic has been producing outstanding performances with Serbia in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, but he has been playing below expectations in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign. Anyhow, Hamburger footballers are likely to fight tooth and nail in Friday’s football game against Eintracht and we predict that they will return to winning ways in the national championship. Ten-man Eintracht did well to share the spoils with title holders Bayern Munich at the weekend, but given their poor away record, home win appears on the cards in this one. You should bear in mind, though, that the two teams shared the spoils in previous two meetings in Bundesliga.
