VfB Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt are chosen as the online betting favorite against VfB Sttutgart. Expect Die Adler to capitalize on their defence to prevent Stuttgart’s attacking attempts. A down the wire match will most likely come to life as both squads struggle to avoid the relegation.

 

Match Date: 02 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Commerzbank Arena

 

Team Form

 

Frankfurt

Die Adler stumbled to the 13th spot of the Bundesliga table after Werder Bremen forced a scoreless stalemate.

 

The drop in the table was indeed, a big blow for Frankfurt. Suc h scenario subjects them into Armageddon as squads engage into a fearless survival battle. The previous match was supposed to be their most plausible way of escaping ruthless encounters. But apparently, their efforts remained futile. They failed to eradicate the relegation threat and now, they have to struggle.

 

But if there is one thing, which keeps the clubs’ confidence, this is their better form over Stuttgart. Frankfurt’s current form shows an equally distributed number of wins, losses and draws during their last six (6) matches. It might also help that they were able to keep a clean sheet in their last three (3) home encounters

 

VfB Stuttgart

Die Roten fell short of their supporters’ expectations as they slumped into another disappointing defeat against Hertha Berlin. It was their 7th consecutive loss.

 

Amidst the thundering roar of support and encouragement, Hertha Berlin proved to be the stronger side than Stuttgart. The former took the early lead, courtesy of Levan Kobiashvili. But Arthur Boka quickly responded. Boka’s equalizer gave hope to the squad. However, it was also the last goal for Stuttgart.

 

The match showed a possibility of ending in a stalemate. Yet, Hertha’s Sandro Wagner pulled off a header, before he got a booking from the ref.

 

Stuttgart’s current form continues to deteriorate. Not only did they lose 7 matches in a row, they have also conceded an average of two (2) goals during their last ten (10 ) encounters.

 

Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt continues to be the favorite in this match due to their better form. There is a high possibility for them to capitalize on their defensive approaches. But just like the Werder Bremen encounter, they cannot be too sure or they might see themselves forcing to accept another even steven finish.
