Updated: February 18, 2014
Borussia Dortmund - Eintracht Frankfurt

The online betting favorite, Eintracht Frankfurt welcome Werder Bremen with a clear intention of redeeming themselves from a Borussia Dortmund thrashing. But despite the advantage, Frankfurt is wary that Robin Dutt’s morale victory may continue in the Commerzbank Arena.


Match Date: 23 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Commerzbank Arena


Team Form    


Die Adler failed to penetrate Bundesliga’s top ten (10) after a 4-0 thrashing from Borussia Dortmund.


After a comfortable win against Braunschweig, Dortmund readily weakened Frankfurt. The latter was unable to score a single goal and all of their efforts to score were futile ones. The defeat was Frankfurt’s second within their last six matches (6).


On a closer look, Frankfut’s current form is still, competitive. However, they need to step up for they are still endanger of slipping to the table’s rock bottom pit. They need to collect more points in order to cope with the tight competition felt in German’s top-flight league.


Werder Bremen

Despite being stuck at the 13th spot of the table, Die Werderaner’s head honcho, Robin Dutt described the result of their Borussia Monchengladbach match as a “morale victory.” This was after Werder Bremen forced their previous opponent to settle for an even steven finish.


Just when the world thought that Borussia Monchengladbach would get the upper hand, Ludovic Obraniak converted and delivered on the 88th and left their opponent with no other option, but to accept the frustrating stalemate.


Bremen has only won once in their last 6 encounters and this readily explain how Dutt described his club’s triumph. Under this case, a draw, remains a much better result than going home empty-handed.


Prediction: Frankfurt

Other than having a more formidable form, there is a high possibility for Frankfurt to exploit Bremen’s poor away form. The latter has been unsuccessful in their last 6 away matches and for Frankfurt, this is one of the best opportunities that they have to totally veer away from the relegation zone and improve their rank.  Frankfurt, however, cannot be too complacent as Werder Bremen is very much capable of forcing another dramatic draw.
