Bundesliga Match Preview: Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Borussia Monchengladbach

Updated: March 25, 2014
Frankfurt and Gladbach

Match Date: 26 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Commerzbank Arena


A return to their winning ways and form is always a sign of relief for clubs. This is most especially true if they have been on the verge of harvesting defeats in several occasions. But aside from the relief, aside from the peace of mind, clubs, which are already back on track are also known for taking their succeeding matches to another level and this is exactly what supporters expect in the encounter between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach.


The satisfaction brought by Gladbach’s victory at home meant more than securing 2 consecutive wins. It also ended their losing streak in their own territory. Gladbach has been losing face during its last 5 matches. To break such spell translates to a renewed confidence, which is crucial to their next encounter.


On the other hand, Frankfurt’s thrashing of Nurnberg elicits a similar degree of satisfaction. Gaining 3 crucial points, Frankfurt has managed to take their first step in veering away from the relegation zone.


The current season has not been so kind to Frankfurt. After successfully securing a spot in this season’s Europa League, the squad has become a frequent visitor of the rock bottom part of the Bundesliga table. Needless to say, its most recent victory will most likely inspire the club to feature and impose their presence in the upcoming match.


Prediction: Stalemate

Both Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach have shown an impressive performance in their previous encounter. Likewise, given the proven track record that these two possess, both are worthy of being hailed as sports betting  favorites of the match. They both showed the possibility of forcing each other to settle for a draw rather than concede 3 important points.  Betting wise, a draw is valued at a profitable 3.30 at 12BET.
