Eintracht Frankfurt is hosting 1899 Hoffenheim at Commerzbank Arena in round 3 in German Bundesliga.
Eintracht is on a 3-game streak without a loss, and they have scored 6 goals while conceding 3 goals during this stretch. With 4 points, 4 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals, Eintracht is in 3rd place in the standings. Andre Silva has scored 2 goals for Eintracht this season, while Dost and Rode added 1 goal each. Kamada and Hasebe each added 1 assist. N’Dicka and Willems are both injured for Eintracht. In their last Bundesliga game against Hertha on the road, Eintracht has had 44% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in the first half and one more in the second half, Eintracht have won this match 1-3. There have been some changes in Eintracht’s roster in the offseason, but they are playing well. Eintracht’s defense was bad last season, and they have conceded at least 1 goal in both of their Bundesliga games this season, and that is Eintracht’s biggest problem because if their offense is not playing well, their defense is not able to defend and compensate for that. The good news for Eintracht is that they are playing only in Bundesliga this season, and they can focus only on one competition.
Hoffenheim is having a fantastic start of the season, and they have won 7 of their last 8 games. After barely getting through in the DFB Pokal match, Hoffenheim has won both of their Bundesliga games. During this stretch, Hoffenheim has scored 7 goals while conceding 3 goals. Hoffenheim was facing Bayern Munich last week, and they were fantastic in that match. Hoffenheim has had only 28% of ball possession, but they had 8 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 62% of the correct passes. Hoffenheim was leading 2-0 in the 24th minute, and while Bayern was able to score in the 36th minute, that was it from them. Hoffenheim scored another 2 goals in the second half, and they have deservedly won this match 4-1. With 6 points, Hoffenheim is now in 1st place in the standings. Kramaric is the leading goalscorer in Hoffenheim and Bundesliga with 5 goals, while Bicakcic and Dabbur added 1 goal each. Geiger and Bebou added 1 assist each. Nordtveit and Stafylidis are both injured. Hoffenheim is showing a lot more maturity this season, and they are much more consistent in the attacking end, at least for now, and with Kramaric in a good goalscoring form, Hoffenheim can beat any team in Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim hasn’t won any of their last 4 games against Eintracht, while Eintracht hasn’t played any of their last 4 home games against Hoffenheim. Both teams are scoring a solid amount of goals, while their defenses are still not set. The only clear choice here is goals, and that is what I will pick.
