Eintracht Frankfurt is going head to head with Werder Bremen starting on 18 Feb 2023 at 17:30 UTC at Deutsche Bank Park stadium, Frankfurt city, Germany. The match is a part of the Bundesliga. Eintracht Frankfurt played against Werder Bremen in 1 matches this season. Currently, Eintracht Frankfurt rank 6th, while Werder Bremen hold 9th position.
Both teams will be aiming to bounce back from defeat when Eintracht Frankfurt host Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga’s Saturday night game. Frankfurt lost to FC Koln last weekend, while Werder Bremen were defeated by Borussia Dortmund.
Having put together an unbeaten run of nine matches in all competitions since losing to Dortmund in late October, Frankfurt were stunned by the nature of their defeat when losing 3-0 away to Koln on Sunday.
Koln had not scored in either of their previous two matches before hosting Frankfurt, having held Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig to goalless draws, and that trend looked set to continue after a low-key first half ended 0-0 at RheinEnergieStadion.
However, Frankfurt were blitzed by Timo Hubers’ header and an unlikely brace from Ellyes Skhiri after the break, with Oliver Glasner’s side only testing opposition goalkeeper Marvin Schwabe on one occasion across the course of the 90 minutes.
Eintracht Frankfurt have stepped up to the plate this season but have a few issues to address ahead of this game. The hosts have an array of impressive players in their ranks and have a point to prove this weekend.
Werder Bremen have shown flashes of potential this season but are far from the finished product at the moment. Eintracht Frankfurt have been the better team so far and should be able to mount a comeback in this game.
Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 Werder Bremen
This match will start from 17:30 UTC
This match will take place on 18 February 2023
Frankfurt will remain without Eric Dina Ebimbe, who is unlikely to return until early April due to an ankle injury. Jesper Lindstrom shook off a thigh injury to start against Koln last weekend, with the attacking midfielder likely to retain his spot in Glasner’s starting XI.
The former Wolfsburg boss may have one eye on his side’s forthcoming European game against Napoli when naming his team against Werder on Saturday, but he is likely to avoid the temptation to rotate, and instead hope to make changes from the substitutes’ bench should victory be all but secured.
Werder, meanwhile, will travel without Felix Agu and Mitchell Weiser due to knee and ankle injuries respectively, while Leonardo Bittencourt is suspended after receiving his fifth caution of the season against Dortmund last weekend.
Eintracht Frankfurt:- Trapp; Tuta, Hasebe, N’Dicka; Buta, Kamada, Sow, Max; Lindstrom, Gotze; Kolo Muani
Werder Bremen:- Pavlenka; Pieper, Stark, Friedl; Stage, Gruev, Gross, Schmidt, Jung; Fullkrug, Ducksch
Tip 1: Result – Eintracht Frankfurt
Tip 2: Game to have over 2.5 goals – Yes
Tip 3: Eintracht Frankfurt to score first – Yes
Tip 4: Randal Kolo Muani to score – Yes
Eintracht Frankfurt are currently in sixth place in the Bundesliga standings and have been fairly impressive so far this season. The hosts slumped to a shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of FC Koln in their previous game and will need to bounce back this weekend.
Werder Bremen, on the other hand, are in ninth place in the league table at the moment and have been plagued by inconsistency over the course of their Bundesliga campaign.
