Returning to the international tournament qualifying zone, Eintracht Frankfurt host Hoffenheim this Saturday, March 2, in a match that is part of the schedule of the twentieth round of the German Championship version 2018/2019. The match will take place at the Commerzbank Arena in Frankfurt. The beginning was scheduled for 11:30 am (Brasília time).
Having spent a day out of the Bundesliga’s top-flight squad, Eintracht Frankfurt found the way back by beating Hannover at home on Sunday, February 24, 3-0.He reached 37 points (ten wins, seven draws and six defeats), returning to the sixth place, the last one leading to the 2019/2020 Europa League. Of breaking, it extended to eight its invicta sequence. The team still has not lost this year, although the series is not the most impressive. It was three wins and five draws.Guaranteeing the place in the next edition of the Europa League, however, is not the priority in the club. The goal is to advance as much as possible in the current tournament dispute. The club will make its debut in the round of 16 next Thursday, March 7, also at home against Internazionale, Italy.His overall Bundesliga performance figures, however, are slightly lower than the overall performance. In this respect, the Frankfurt team is the seventh best in the tournament. Of the 33 points he played in his arena, he won 18 (six wins and six draws).Three are the medical doubts of coach Adi Huttler for Saturday’s meeting. They are in the process of recovering from injury and will have to undergo further examinations to know if they can play midfielders Gelson Fernandes (19 matches in the 2018/2019 version of the German Championship, one goal), Marc Stendera (seven games, no goal) and Lucas Torro (five games, no goal).
After qualifying for continental competition in the last two seasons, Hoffenheim have struggled to maintain the standard. With 34 points (eight wins, 10 draws and five losses), he occupies the eighth position.Thus, the meeting with Eintracht Frankfurt ends up as what is conventionally called a ‘six-point game’. On Monday, February 25, the team missed an excellent opportunity to approach. Rounding out the Bundesliga’s twenty-third round, they drew 1-1 with Leipzig at home.Not that the equality before the fourth placed of the German Championship and even more in its domains can be considered a stumbling block, but the way it happened was frustrating. Hoffenheim went ahead in the lead and kept the advantage until the last minutes. It suffered the equalizer goal in the 44 minutes of the final stage.He has been unbeaten for five games, but just like Frankfurt the series has more equalities (three) than wins (two). As a visitor you are presenting more danger to your rivals. It figures as the fifth best of the German Championship in this respect. Of the 33 points he played in column two, he won 17 points (four wins, five draws and two losses), scoring 26 goals and conceding 20.Medical doubts to be managed by coach Julian Nagelsmann are concentrated in the midfield sector. Dennis Geiger (four games, no goal), Benjamini Hubner (six games without a goal) and Kevin Vogt (18 games, no goal) are in the infirmary, Christoph Baumgarter (still without performances in the 2018/2019 season).
