Werder vs Eintracht Frankfurt Odds
Werder Coming Back From the Dead
With seven out of nine possible points since the resume of the Bundesliga, Werder is making a strong push in their intention for staying in the league. The River Islanders would first defeat Freiburg on the road with a minimal 0-1, and after that, play 0-0 with Borussia Monchengladbach at home. Afterward, they would beat Schalke also on the road and also with 0-1.
So as you can see, all these matches were pretty tight, and with defense as the primary option for teams in them. Werder didn’t have such an approach during the earlier stages, and they would often concede two or three goals while on the other side, not being able to strike at least once. The approach now is different – defend first, attack later, which gives some results.
Claudio Pizarro will be in protocol, while Milot Rashica stands as doubtful right now. Kevin Mohwald, Omer Toprak, Nuckas Fullkrug, and Nuri Sahin are all out.
Eintracht’s Biggest Test of the Season
After a 1-2 triumph last week on the road against Wolfsburg, this could be the crucial game of the campaign for the Eagles here. With new three points, they will get away from the red zone, and directly beat one of their potential candidates.
Opposite to Werder, Eintracht plays open and efficient matches, with just one of them in the last 10 ending with under 2.5 goals, and with four straight with both teams to score. It is something they prefer to do for a long time, and didn’t want to back out despite posting bad results.
Lucas Torro Marset is suspended for the guests because of the red card received, while Goncalo Paciencia still didn’t recover from his muscle injury.
Head to Head Matches
Eintracht defeated Werder in the first game this season, with 2-0. Silva and Kamada were the scorers, with the note that the opening goal came in the sixth minute of the stoppage time of the first half from the penalty. The hosts back then weren’t that better than the rest.
Something tells us that this match won’t see too many goals, and that we should bet on a moderate efficiency, that is, 2 or 3 scores. However, we will try with something different, and that is with scoring in the second 45 minutes. The importance of the match will no doubt affect both sides to be careful and to have a conservative approach in the first half. Neither team would be willing to risk to concede a goal early on.
Therefore the majority of action should be expected in the latter part of the match. Over 1.5 goals in the second half are valued at -115, which is great.
