Frankfurt wins again?
Frankfurt’s Eintracht is currently in impressive form. On Sunday evening at 18 o’clock the wolves will give a guest performance in the Commerzbank Arena. The SBU has not lost a game for over two months. If they also manage to win against VfL Wolfsburg, they could even jump to second place in the table.
In September, most football fans were sure: After notable departures, Eintracht will play for relegation. Of the first five Bundesliga matches, only the first one was won, followed by three defeats and a draw. On September 30th, the Hessians began their run, which continues to this day. The 4:1 against Hannover was the starting signal for brilliant weeks. In the last seven league games there were six wins and one draw at 1 FC Nürnberg. Eintracht also dominates in the Europa League. Despite their great opponents Lazio Rom and Olympique Marseille, they collected all possible 15 points and are already group winners. Against VfL Wolfsburg, Frankfurt are the clear favourites in their current form. “We know what awaits us in Frankfurt. These are the challenges you like,” says Wolf coach Bruno Labbadia. For his VfL, a draw in Frankfurt would certainly be a success.
Balance speaks for Wolfsburg
The last clash in January 2018 went to SBU. Frankfurt won 3-1, with Chandler, Jovic and Haller scoring the goals. Haller and Jovic are again under observation in the upcoming duel. Haller has scored nine goals so far and prepared six. Storm colleague Jovic also scored nine times and provided four assists. This makes the attackers the most dangerous offensive duo in the Bundesliga. Despite their recent 3-1 victory, the Frankfurters have no positive record against the Wolves. Before their success, they could only win one of the last ten games. Of 38 duels, 18 went to VfL and only eight to Eintracht. The Lower Saxons are also unerring when it comes to the SGE. It has been almost eight years since the Frankfurters were able to play Wolfsburg to zero. Of the last six home games, Frankfurt only won the match in January of this year. So although Frankfurt is the big favourite, Wolfsburg can hope for a surprise.
