Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia M'gladbach
Frankfurt halted a run of five straight defeats last time out, though it wasn’t in the manner they would have hoped as they could only manage a goalless draw at home to struggling Hamburg, meaning they’ve scored only one goal during their current dry spell and have dropped down from 3rd to 7th. The international break probably came at a good time for them so they can regroup and the same can be said for Gladbach, who have lost their last two, though one of those was against Bayern.
A large part of Frankfurt’s dip in form can be put down to injuries as they’ve been without the likes of Vallejo, Hasebe and Varela in recent weeks, whilst the likes of, Stendera, Regasel and Medojevic are long-term absentees. They won six of their first nine unbeaten home games at the Commerzbank-Arena this season but they’ve picked up only one point from their last three at home, despite the fact that two of these were against sides currently in the bottom three.
Gladbach, on the other hand, picked up just two points from their first eight away games but have won three of their last four on their travels and as a result they’re certainly the form pick here. They travelled to top-half sides in each of their opening six away games but they’ve been better against weaker opposition and since Frankfurt aren’t playing like a top-half team at the moment, despite occupying a position in the first nine, we’re siding with the visitors.
