Eintracht Frankfurt is welcoming Borussia M’gladbach to Commerzbank Arena in round 12 in the German Bundesliga.
Eintracht is still in terrible form, but two things are consistent, Eintracht is scoring and conceding goals. In their last 4 games, Eintracht has 3 draws and 1 loss, and they have scored 6 goals while conceding 7 goals. In their last Bundesliga game, Eintracht was playing against Wolfsburg on the road, and they have had 46% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and only 67% of accurate passes. Even though we saw plenty of good chances in the first half, there weren’t any goals. The second half was a lot more exciting, and we saw 3 scored goals, unfortunately for Eintracht, they conceded 2. Eintracht has lost this game 2-1 on the road. With this terrible run, Eintracht is sinking in the standings, and they are now in 9th place with only 13 points, 16 scored goals, and 19 conceded goals so far. Silva is still the leading goalscorer for Eintracht with 7 goals, while Dost added 4 goals. Ache is the only injured player for Eintracht at this time. I know it’s only a matter of time before this slump ends, but Eintracht will need to wait for a weaker opponent to do it.
M’gladbach hasn’t won any of their last 4 games, but they got lucky, and they have advanced to the next stage in the Champions League where they will face Manchester City in February. In Bundesliga, M’gladbach is now in 8th place with 17 points, 20 scored goals, and 17 conceded goals. Stindl has scored 4 goals for M’gladbach so far, while Hofmann added 2 goals and 4 assists, but he is injured, and he will miss this game. Bensebaini is also injured for Borussia M’gladbach. In their last Bundesliga match, Borussia was hosting Hertha, and they were the better team with 55% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 13 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a decent 81% of the correct passes. Borussia has had a lot of decent chances, but they weren’t able to convert them into goals. In the 47th minute, Borussia has conceded a goal, but they were able to tie the score in the 70th minute. We saw a few more good chances until the end, but the final score was 1-1. Maybe with the Champions League pressure off, Borussia will gain more confidence and they will start playing more consistently, and Eintracht is the perfect team for that.
Eintracht hasn’t won any of their last 10 games, but they also haven’t lost a home game so far this season. Both Eintracht and M’gladbach are good teams, but Borussia is better, and in better form, and I just don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel for Eintracht. I’m taking Borussia on the road.
