Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to get their league form back on track when they return to Bundesliga action this weekend. They will be looking to end a long winless sequence when they take on a Hoffenheim side that has gone three without a victory.
It has been a difficult second half to the season for Eintracht Frankfurt, as they have dropped out of the race for Champions League qualification easily. They now sit down in ninth place in the standings, and will face an uphill challenge to even qualify for the Europa League. Frankfurt could move up to eighth with a victory this weekend, but they would still potentially be two points off the top six places in the standings.
The visitors have lost twice in their previous four matches, while they have also been held to three further draws over their last five. Frankfurt were held to a tenth draw of the season in their most recent fixture against Augsburg. That was a disappointing effort by the hosts on that occasion, as they mustered just a single shot on target in front of their own fans.
Hoffenheim are still battling for points at the opposite end of the standings, as they sit just a point clear of the relegation playoff place. The German side comes into this weekend having failed to win in their previous three matches, with each of their last two ending in defeat.
Their most recent loss was suffered on the road against RB Leipzig. The Champions League-chasing hosts scored the only goal of the game after 28 minutes, but Hoffenheim defended well for the most part, limiting Leipzig to just two shots on target in the 90 minutes.
Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head to Head
Frankfurt picked up a 4-2 win in the previous meeting between the sides. However, this exact fixture last season saw the hosts register a 3-2 success. But, Frankfurt has won on three of their previous four visits to Hoffenheim.
Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
This should be a good game in prospect between these two sides. Over 2.5 match goals could be an interesting angle, as this would have been a winning selection in each of the last six showdowns between the sides in the league. However, the outright selection will be for Frankfurt, who has dominated the previous encounters between the teams.
