Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In a matchup that famously produces fireworks, Hertha Berlin will be hoping to make it two in two when they host Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while many would have been worried for Hertha Berlin after they come crashing out of the DFP Pokal thanks to a stunning 5-4 defeat away at lower-league Eintracht Braunschweig earlier in the month, Bruno Labbadia’s men really bounced back last weekend. Clearly putting their disappointing summer preparations behind them, the Old Lady really caught the eye as they stormed to a thumping 4-1 victory away at Werder Bremen on their Bundesliga opener. While Hertha’s defensive issues were clearly on display as they signed off the extended 2019/2020 campaign over the summer, Labbadia would have been glad to see both of his attacking talismans open their account last weekend. Watching both Matheus Cunha and Jhon Cordoba grab second-half strikes away at Bremen, Hertha should be quietly confident of laying down another marker on Friday night.
As for the visitors, while Eintracht Frankfurt might have dominated large spells on their return to action last weekend, the Eagles eventually had to settle for a point against Bundesliga debutants Arminia Bielefeld. However, glad to see their red-hot leading marksman Andre Silva already open his account after a stunning end to last year’s campaign, Adi Hutter’s men also previously held a real reputation for their performances on the road. Managing to drag themselves away from what appeared to be a growing relegation scrap when returning from football’s enforced break, Frankfurt collected 10 points over the final four matchups away from Deutsche Bank Park, a run highlighted by a thumping 4-1 win away at Hertha. With just the last three meetings between the two sides producing 14 goals, we’re backing what should be another lively encounter on Friday night in Berlin.
Bet: Over 2.5 goals at Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt 7/10 for Friday’s Bundesliga battle @ 888sport
