Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig PREVIEW & PREDICTION 23/09/2018

Without a doubt, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams are even and somewhat irregular in their actions. For this reason and knowing that the local team usually increases its level in its stadium, we believe that the bet “both teams score” is interesting to bet. Remember that the visit knows how to stand in this condition, standing out by being well-suited to the moment of elaborating and attacking. Paint to be a duel with spaces in which both sets recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage.

Eintracht Frankfurt:

The team’s league start has not been as expected after losing 3-1 to Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park. He has won 2 straight losses, leaving behind the victory he got on the opening date (0-2 against Freiburg). With 3 points in the table, the goal of the team is to recover spiritually and football. Therefore, it is expected to risk at times and try to take advantage of the field factor to advance the lines. Of course, take some precautions because it will hit one of the most explosive opponents of the championship. Comes to beat Olympique Marseille 1-2 by visiting the Europa League (triumph 1-2 after losing 1-0 the initial stage).

As a local, Eintracht Frankfurt played a game and the result was negative for their interests after losing 1-2 to Werder Bremen (0-1 disadvantage from the initial stage). The most painful of this defeat was having suffered it in the 51st minute of the second half. For this match, DT Hutter is expected to maintain the 4-2-3-1 system he is using regularly, which allows the team to be relatively effective in the face of the goal. Of course, he needs to be more balanced in his actions, since he has given so many in his first 3 league presentations (5 in total).


Rangnick’s team played against Salzburg at home by the Europa League (defeat 2-3 after losing 0-2 the initial stage). In the German tournament has added 4 points in total, product of 1 victory, 1 equality and 1 loss in total. It comes to beat Hannover 3-2 at home, leaving behind a negative streak of 2 games without winning. His goal is to be more regular between the lines, since he is scoring and conceding goals with great ease. Of course, despite this irregular start, has what it takes to develop and generate various situations of goal.

As a visitor, Leipzig has registered an exit so far, which was negative for their league aspirations (defeat 4-1 against Borussia Dortmund in the Signal Iduna Park). The worst thing about this start is that he started winning in the first minutes of the game. Then the team lost control and yielded 3 goals in the initial stage. For this exit the DT is expected to repeat the 4-4-2 system that has been used regularly, which allows its leaders to be competitive in their actions (relatively effective in making the transitions defense-attack and attack-defense) . For the Europa League, he played 3 starts and in the first two this pick was given (1-1 against Hacken and 1-1 against U Craiova 1948 CS). In the last one against Zorya it did not materialize when the game ended 0-0 after the final whistle.

In the last year and a half, Eintracht Frankfurt and Leipzig have met twice at the Commerzbank-Arena. These were the results of those meetings: Draw 2-2 in May of 2017 and victory 2-1 of Eintracht Frankfurt in February 2018. Apparently in both clashes, each time these teams face each other, there are goals in between. It is enough to know that the bet has been given “both teams score” in the two presentations to corroborate this statement.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.57
