Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Werder Bremen Betting Preview – Bundesliga, October 31, 2020
Eintracht Frankfurt is looking to snap a two-game winless run and bounce back from a devastating 5-0 defeat to the reigning champions Bayern Munich. After a bright start to the season, they dropped points in the last two rounds, and are currently in 8th place with eight points from five matches.
Werder Bremen lost the opening game of the campaign to Hertha Berlin, but then responded very well and connected four consecutive matches without a loss. They won two and drew two, including the most recent one with Hoffenheim, and are leveled with Frankfurt in the standings with eight points.
Here is my Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Werder Bremen betting prediction and check out all the latest news, stats, and H2H record.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Werder Bremen Odds
Eintracht Frankfurt Team News and Stats
Eintracht Frankfurt’s eight-match unbeaten Bundesliga streak (W5, D3) came to an end with a 5-0 loss at Bayern Munich (October 24). It’s now been ten league matches since they kept the net intact (W5, D3, L2), a run that started following their 3-0 victory over Werder in June. Ten (62.5%) goals allowed therein arrived after the 50th minute.
Both teams scored in each of Frankfurt’s previous four Bundesliga matches at home (W3, D1) while they are without a loss in 69.23% of home league games entered as favorites since the start of last campaign. Impressively, Frankfurt earned a league-high average of 9.5 corners per home Bundesliga contest this term.
Adi Hutter cannot count on Ragnar Ache (hip) and Filip Kostic (knee).
Werder Bremen Team News and Stats
Bremen boasts the same overall league record as Eintracht this season (W2, D2, L1) and is without a loss in four Bundesliga games (W2, D2). Scoring in their previous seven competitive matches (W3, D3, L1), they’ve frequently struck early with five (71.43%) of their seven Bundesliga goals this campaign coming before the 40th minute – three of those (60%) came between the 20th-30th minute.
Unbeaten on the road in four competitive games (W2, D2), their last five league matches on the road (W2, D2, L1 – including relegation play-offs) featured both teams scoring and at least one goal in the opening 30 minutes. Notably, Werder’s previous six Bundesliga visits to Deutsche Bank Park each saw both teams scoring (W1, D2, L3).
Florian Kohfeldt will be without Felix Agu (illness), Ludwig Augustinsson (hip), and Niclas Fullkrug (calf), while Yuya Osako (knee) is questionable to face Frankfurt on Saturday.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Werder Bremen Pick
Frankfurt won four of the previous ten H2H encounters (D3, L3), including the last two, while they are unbeaten in the past four meetings with Werder. Those two victories for Frankfurt ended a seven-game run with goals on both sides, while six of the last seven duels at Deutsche Bank Park also produced goals on both ends. Werder scored at least a goal in each game this season, and I am backing them to score again here, which is the reason I am going with BTTS.
