Match Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt


Eintracht Frankfurt

Three consecutive draws marked Eintracht Frankfurt’s most recent fixtures, which is relatively much more acceptable than what they have obtained (6-1 loss) when they faced Hertha BSC at the curtain raiser. Die Adler’s current streak does not guarantee a very reliable future, especially when only two of their seven matches could brandish positive result. The side have plenty of remarkable players, most notably Vaclav Kadlec and Stefan Aigner, but they are easily paralleled by the strengths of other club’s key fighters. Nevertheless, Armin Veh could still dig deep to bring out the best in his men. Held back by some factors, the players have yet to harness their full potential.



Nürnberg lack the right skills to paddle their boat toward a much calmer sea. Plagued by a seemingly endless row of draws, broken only by three defeats, the side are still not quite equipped to earn a really genuine success. Their most recent combat was hoped to be their best chance to obtain their first victory this season. However, what was expected to be a home feast turned out to be a sour banquet spoiled by the visitors. Hamburger SV thrashed the troupe in a 0-5 away finish, worsening Der Club’s already-poor streak. This would serve as the side’s third time to land in the 16th spot, just one step away from the relegation zone.


Online betting tip: This tourney would solicit strength from the sides’ possession and defense. Converting chances into goals is still a major challenge for both Eintracht Frankfurt and Nürnberg, but the former have the better potential to net innings. Die Adler might dominate this battle, although Nürnberg can make their success a hard-fought one.
