Tip Reasoning

Niko Kovac’s Frankfurt have undergone a complete overhaul since their poor 2015/2016 campaign. Frankfurt’s 3-0 defeat away to Bayer Leverkusen last Saturday marked just their fifth defeat of the season, but the Eagles remained in third place regardless as a strange weekend of Bundesliga football saw all teams between 2nd and 7th defeated.

Strugglers Ingolstadt remained in the automatic relegation positions, after their last minute defeat at home to Bayern Munich last weekend. Ingolstadt have won just one of their last five matches (W1 L4), though coach Maik Walpurgis’s record of 13 points from 10 games remains miles better than predecessor Markus Kauczinski (2 points in 10 matches).

Eintracht Frankfurt are the favourites here at 21/20 and we feel there’s some decent value to be had backing the hosts for the following reasons: Frankfurt have the joint 4th best home record in the Bundesliga (W6 D3) and have won four of their last five at home (80%) against some tricky opponents, such as, Cologne, Mainz and Dortmund. Meanwhile, Ingolstadt have the joint 3rd worst away record in the Bundesliga, losing 70% of their matches on the road, and the Bavarians have failed to score in three of their four matches (75%) so far in 2017. Eintracht’s clear strength this season has been in their stellar defensive form – Frankfurt currently hold the joint 2nd best defensive record in the Bundesliga (just 18 goals conceded) – so Ingolstadt will have a hard time shaking that poor streak here.

Regarding a correct score bet, Eintracht Frankfurt have kept a clean sheet in 56% of their matches at the Commerzbank Arena, including in four of their last five, while Ingolstadt have failed to score in 40% of away matches. Hence, expecting the hosts to win-to-nil shouldn’t be too far-fetched. Alongside Eintracht Frankfurt’s approximate two goals scored per match average, there should be some decent value in a 2-0 Frankfurt win at 15/2 here.
