Eintracht Frankfurt is welcoming SC Paderborn 07 to Commerzbank Arena in round 34 of German Bundesliga.
Eintracht was fantastic in their last three games in Bundesliga with 2 wins and a draw, but it was too little too late and Eintracht doesn’t have a chance to get to the Europa League. In their last three games, Eintracht has scored 7 goals, while conceding only 3 goals. They are still playing in the Europa League this season, but I’m giving them a lot of chances as Eintracht has lost in the first leg 0-3 against Basel. Andre Silva is the leading goal scorer for Eintracht with 11 goals, while Hinteregger added 8 goals. Fili Kostic has been outstanding with 12 assists. Gelson Fernandes is the only injured player for Eintracht. Overall, a decent season for Eintracht, especially in the attacking end where they scored 56 goals, but Eintracht could have done a lot better if only they had a bit more focus on the defensive end. Eintracht has conceded massive 58 goals in 33 games this season. With 42 points, Eintracht is in 9th place, and they can go a spot up or down, but it’s all the same. In their most recent game in Bundesliga against Koln, Eintracht was the better team with 62% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. Despite being the better team, Eintracht was struggling to score a goal and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Eintracht is a talented team, and I’m sure this season was a disappointment for them in some way, but I think they can be happy with the result and start preparing for the next season.
Paderborn is the weakest team in Bundesliga, and that is why they will be relegated to Bundesliga 2. Paderborn has won only 20 points this season, scored 35 goals, and conceded 71 goals, the most in Bundesliga. It was clear basically from the start of the season that Paderborn will not have a good time in Bundesliga, but they gave it their all, and that is everything they could have done, but it just wasn’t enough. It’s always hard for the teams that got promoted to the higher division to be competitive, but especially to the teams that lose some of their key players. In their last Bundesliga game against M’gladbach at home, Paderborn has had 49% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 3 corner kicks, and 84% of the correct passes. Paderborn has lost this game, but at least they scored a goal in their last Bundesliga game at home this season. Paderborn has lost this match 1-3. Srbeny and Mamba have each scored 5 goals for Paderborn this season. Schonlau and Strohdiek are both injured and will miss the finish of this season. Paderborn was certainly hoping to stay in Bundesliga, and they were expecting a hard season, but unfortunately, they were unsuccessful, and I wish them luck in Bundesliga 2 next season.
Neither of the teams can actually benefit from a win here, but I’m sure that Eintracht would like to finish the season with a home win. Only because of that reason I will side with Eintracht.
