Venue: Commerzbank Arena

 

A scoreless stalemate against Hoffenheim catapulted Eintracht Frankfurt’s rise in the Bundesliga table. The club tries to press more wins to guarantee a stronger finish. But will they emerge victorious against the strong Bayer?

 

Frankfurt’s attempt to make it to the top 10 is technically possible since they still have 2 more games left and with a maximum of 6 points to be earned, they can easily overcome Hertha Berlin’s 5-point lead. However, it is less likely that Bayer, the match’s online betting favorite, will wave the white flag. Like Frankfurt, Bayer has strong reasons behind continuing their dream of qualifying to the next season’s Champions League.

 

Bayer’s hopes remained alive after seeing Schalke slip in their last 2 matches. The latter has prevented to extend their lead and suddenly, Bayer will only need to trail 3 points. Without a doubt, such lead is highly manageable, considering their strength and dominance on the pitch.

 

Should Schalke slip again, it will be easy for Bayer to steal the spotlight. But they need to make their move now. And they have to be careful.

 

Sascha Lewandowski must never forget that that Frankfurt is a strong force to reckon with. During their last 6 matches, both Bayer and Frankfurt have managed to clinch 3 wins each. This is an outright testament to the fact that Frankfurt is a no pushover club.

 

Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen
