Reason For Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim Betting Tips

2018/19 was a good season for Eintracht Frankfurt on the whole. The Eagles reached the Europa League semi-finals and were somewhat unfortunate to only finish seventh in the Bundesliga. Frankfurt’s brilliance didn’t go unnoticed though. They have a bit of a rebuilding project on their hands after the departures or Luca Jovic to Real Madrid and Sebastian Haller to West Ham.

The weight of expectation seems to be placed on Ante Rebic’s shoulders. He was the third member of last season’s devastating trio and he’s responded about as good as you can to the pressure, bagging a hat-trick in the 5-3 win over 3. Liga side Waldhof Mannheim in the DFB Pokal first round last weekend. New arrival Dejan Joveljic is also in line to make his Bundesliga debut alongside him on Sunday.

Hoffenheim have had a lot of change over the summer too. Assistant coach Alfred Schreuder has the difficult task of taking over from former-boss Julian Nagelsmann, who became something of an icon in Sinsheim before leaving for RB Leipzig this summer. Player-wise, Hoffenheim also lost Joelinton, Kerem Demirbay, Nico Schulz, Nadiem Amiri and Reiss Nelson to transfers.

Schreuder will, therefore, be making some of his attacking plans for the weekend around new winger Ihlas Bebou, who scored four goals in six games for Hannover before their relegation from the Bundesliga last season. They’ll need a big performance from him with last season’s leading goalscorer, Andrej Kramaric, only returning to training this week.

With a lot of new variables in the mix, this game looks a tough one to call. However, one thing that does remain from last term is Frankfurt boss Adi Hutter, and his style of football led to many memorable matches in the 18/19 campaign. Around 70% of their games last term saw a bet on ‘over 2.5 goals’ land, so this shouldn’t be a dull affair by any stretch of the imagination.

Hoffenheim’s football under Nagelsmann was also a highly attacking style – notably, over 3.5 goals were scored in a massive 76% of their away days last term – and their 3-3 draw away to Wurzburger Kickers in the cup last weekend didn’t show too much of a change from that. Perhaps coach Schreuder has learnt a thing or two from the few years they spent together at the club.

All in all, despite so many changes, we think they’ll be more of the same in terms of goals. Both sides were high up the charts in all the meaningful stats for them – in fact, no team had a higher ‘both teams to score’ rate in away games than Hoffenheim (94%) – so this looks like one to tune in for. And with Frankfurt’ holding a decent track record against Hoffenheim, we like them to clinch it. Our prediction: 2-1 Eintracht Frankfurt.
