Eintracht Frankfurt vs Darmstadt Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Eintracht Frankfurt will be aiming to build on their recent victory in the Bundesliga when they welcome Darmstadt at the Commerzbank-Arena on Sunday evening. Eintracht Frankfurt managed a narrow 0-1 win on the road at Schalke 04 last weekend, with Alexander Meier scoring the goal just after the half-hour mark for Niko Kovac’s side. On the contrary, Darmstadt were thrashed 1-6 at home by FC Cologne last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Sidney Sam. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

Eintracht Frankfurt kicked off the new year with a heavy 3-0 defeat on the road at RB Leipzig, but bounced back with a narrow 0-1 win at Schalke 04 last weekend. This was their ninth victory of the season, and they now sit in a comfortable 3rd position in the Bundesliga table with 32 points to their name after 18 rounds, just one point clear off the 4th-placed Borussia Dortmund. Their impressive defence has been the main reason for Eintracht Frankfurt’s performances throughout this campaign, as they hold the second best defensive record in the division with just 15 goals conceded in 18 rounds. They managed to keep a clean sheet in eight of their 18 league outings so far, which is an impressive achievement. However, Frankfurt have struggled a little bit going forward so far this season, scoring just 23 goals in 18 league games. Alexander Meier is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals under his belt, while Marco Fabian has helped the team with three goals and four assists in his 13 league appearances. Eintracht Frankfurt have been a tough nut to crack at the Commerzbank-Arena this season, having won six and drawing three of their nine home competitive fixtures.

Darmstadt Preview

Meanwhile, Darmstadt are definitely the worst team in the Bundesliga at the moment, and they proved that last weekend, as they were dismantled by FC Cologne last weekend, losing 1-6 in front of their own fans. They are rock bottom of the Bundesliga table with just 9 points to their name after 18 rounds, already seven points behind safety. Darmstadt have struggled at both ends of the field throughout this Bundesliga campaign, but their biggest problems have been in attack. They hold the worst offensive record in the division, having scored just 12 goals in 18 league fixtures. Antonio-Mirko Colak has been Darmstadt’s most in-form player so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with just three goals under his belt in his 14 appearances in the Bundesliga. Darmstadt are the worst away team in the Bundesliga, as they suffered defeats in each of their eight away league fixtures and scored just four goals in the process. Furthermore, Darmstadt have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four away games in the Bundesliga. The good news is that Darmstadt picked up two victories in their three meetings with Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.
