Eintracht Frankfurt stand one place above the relegation zone and they desperately need points in order to move up in the safer zone. They took 4 points in the second half of the season beating Wolfsburg 3-2 and played draw against Augsburg, but they lost the last two matches and now they have to think about victory. Last season they beat HSV at home, while in the first match of the season between these two teams Eintracht took one point. Home side have very poor defence, one of the worst in Bundesliga, and it will be very hard for them to secure their net. Big blow for them could be the absence of their very important defender Oczipka, who is suspended.

Hamburger SV stand at the middle of the table, with 5 points more than their opponent. They still have a chance to reach the place which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League, but their first goal is to avoid relegation. The second half of the season didn’t start well for HSV, after they lost in the first two matches this year, but they have improved their performance and took one point against Koln and beat B. Monchengladbach last week. Interesting fact about visitors is that they scored and conceded at least one goal in their last 4 Bundesliga matches.

Home team miss Anderson (0/0 d), Flum (5/0 m), Reinartz (13/1 m) and their second top scorer Castaignos (11/4 f) due to injury, while Oczipka (21/0 d) is suspended. On the other side, visitors will be without their second top scorer Gregoritsch (18/3 f).

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV possible lineups

Eintracht Frankfurt: Hradecky – Regäsel, Zambrano, Abraham, Hasebe – Stendera, Russ – Aigner, Fabian, Huszti – Meier.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hamburger SV Prediction

Both teams need points, especially home side, and their defences are very shaky so I expect at least one goal in both nets.
