Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After playing out back-to-back draws with the likes of Freiburg and Wolfsburg in previous two league fixtures, Hamburger will be looking to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they host Eintracht Frankfurt at their Volksparkstadion. Die Rothosen have been impressive at the back of late and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the German top flight. Hamburger are eager to escape the danger zone in the Bundesliga standings, but Tuesday’s football match against Eintracht Frankfurt will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Die Adler failed to upset star-studded Bayern Munich at the weekend (0-1), but they remained in the top half of the table. Hamburger want this win more than Eintracht Frankfurt and that is the main reason why we predict the relegation-threatened side will emerge triumphant in the midweek fixture.
Highlighted Player (Mergim Mavraj):
Born in Germany to Albanian parents, Mergim Mavraj made two appearances for the Germany Under 21 side before switching his allegiance to Albania and he has since become a key defender for his new national team. The experienced centre back began his professional career at Darmstadt, but his talent was quickly spotted by Bochum scouts and he made a move to the Bundesliga side in 2007. Four years later, he surprisingly opted to join second division side Greuther Furth, but that proved a good career move as he helped the team secure promotion to the Bundesliga before putting in some solid showings in the Germany’s top flight. But, when his side eventually returned to the second division, he moved to FC Koln, where he has been since the summer of 2014. Meanwhile, Mavraj quickly established himself as an important player for the Albanian national team, establishing a good partnership with captain Lorik Cana, and helping the team secure their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
