Eintracht Frankfurt is hosting FC Union Berlin at Commerzbank Arena in round 26 in the German Bundesliga.
Eintracht’s winning streak has ended 3 weeks ago, and they still weren’t able to win a game since then. Eintracht is scoring goals consistently, and they are one of the best offensive teams in the league with 48 scored goals. Eintracht is in 4th place with 44 points, and that is the place that will take them to the Champions League if they can stay there of course. Eintracht was playing against Leipzig on the road in their last game, and they have had 44% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 71% of the correct passes. Eintracht conceded a goal just as the second half started, but they were able to tie the score in the 61st minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. Andre Silva has been in brilliant form this season, and he has scored 19 goals in 23 games for Eintracht, while Kamada added 4 goals and 7 assists. Toure, Durm, and Hinteregger are all injured. I knew Eintracht is a good offensive team, but I wasn’t expecting them to be this high in the standings because they have had a lot of defensive issues, but as long as their offense can compensate for that, Eintracht will do well.
Union Berlin is also on a nice run, and they are undefeated in their last 5 games. Union Berlin is having a fantastic season so far, and not only they are far away from the relegation zone, but Union is also in the Europa League race. With 38 points, 38 scored goals, and only 27 conceded goals, Union is in 7th place, and they are only 2 points away from the Europa League. In their last Bundesliga game against Koln at home, Union has had 41% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. After losing at halftime, Union has scored 2 goals in the second half despite being the weaker team, and they have won this game 2-1. Kruse has scored 8 goals for Union so far, while Trimmel added 5 goals. Ujah, Becker, Awoniyi, Giesselmann, and Lenz are all injured for Union Berlin. As I’ve said earlier, a fantastic season for Union Berlin and they are the kind of a team that will let their opponents have the possession and be in control, but they will catch them unprepared on the counterattacks, and it’s working really well for them.
Eintracht is still undefeated at home this season, and they are in solid form, but so is Eintracht. Union is the better team defensively, but Eintracht is the better team in the attacking end. We usually see a lot of goals when these two teams meet, and I think the same will happen here. I’m taking the goals, on both sides.
