Hoffenheim will be looking to keep their European aspirations on track on Saturday in the Bundesliga, as they look to return to winning ways against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim will likely both still be targeting a place in Europe this season. However, both will need to end terrible runs of form, as neither have picked up a win in their previous four games in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim are slightly closer towards the European places in the Bundesliga, as they are just two points off sixth-placed Union Berlin. However, they have been on a terrible run of form in recent weeks, as they have failed to win in their previous five games. During that run, Hoffenheim have suffered three defeats, and have been held to two draws.
They were at least able to end a three-game losing run in their most recent fixture, as they played out a 0-0 draw against Furth. Hoffenheim were the side pressing the most to break the deadlock, but they couldn’t open the scoring despite having three shots on target.
Eintracht Frankfurt have a distant chance of breaking into the top six at this late stage of the Bundesliga season. They are currently eight points off Union Berlin, with just four games of the season remaining. It looked as though they were the form team heading into the final push this season just two months ago. However, a run of four without victory has been damaging to their chances.
Frankfurt are winless in their previous four games, and have lost each of their previous two. Their latest defeat came against Union Berlin last weekend, as they were beaten 2-0. However, Frankfurt could still force their way into the Champions League next season as they have reached the semi-finals of the Europa League.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim Head to Head
Frankfurt has an excellent record against Hoffenheim, as they have picked up victories in six of the previous seven meetings between the sides. They have also picked up wins in each of the last three home games that they have played against Hoffenheim. However, Hoffenheim did pick up a victory in the previous meeting between the sides in December.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Frankfurt’s excellent home record in this fixture could be the crucial factor. However, I’m wary that they may rest players in this fixture with their crucial semi-final tie against West Ham looming. Therefore, a draw could be the most realistic outcome.
