Betting tips Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Frankfurt are stand out favourites

Sunday evening sees Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen go head to head at the Commerzbank-Arena and it’s looking like we’re going to get a heated affair with a raucous crowd to boot. Frankfurt are doing well and will be looking to press Leverkusen. No doubt the home team are strong favourites but nonetheless I’ve found some solid value in the odds.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Judging by the first half of the season, it wouldn’t be wrong to state that Eintracht Frankfurt are by far the Bundesliga’s most underrated team. It has a lot to do with how they perform in front of goal and the way they attack the game.

Frankfurt aren't a fluke

On top of that Frankfurt are extremely strong on home turf in all competitions. In the Europa League they’ve already won their group with 5 wins in 5 and a goal difference of +11.

It goes to show that Frankfurt aren’t a fluke and a lot of that is down to their attacking partnership of Jovic, Rebic and Haller. It’s led them to scoring on average 2.83 goals at home.

There are a few injury concerns in the their squad, but no key players are missing.

Bayer Leverkusen

If Frankfurt have a lot to shout about from the first half of the season, it’s quite the opposite for Leverkusen. It’s been a bit of a disappointing campaign so far. They haven’t been able to string together a series of wins in a while and that’s not surprisingly left Leverkusen lying adrift in the middle of the table.

It's not looking too good for Leverkusen

None of their players seem to be sticking out, and from 7 matches away from home this season, they’ve only managed 2 wins. They’ve been averaging around 1.43 goals scored and 1.71 conceded which isn’t a lot to write home about. It becomes even more worrying when you compare those figures to what Frankfurt have been generating at home.

Lately they’ve drawn away against Nuremberg and before that racked up a 3-0 loss to RB Leipzig. Looking at the latest results, their goal averages, and their form away from home and it’s not looking too good for Leverkusen. On top of that there’s the injuries to key players like centre back Tah and the midfield anchor Sven Bender.

Betting Tips

Considering recent form amongst everything else there’s a clear, stonewall favourite here. Frankfurt are fighting on two fronts domestically and in Europe, and are performing well in both that’s seen a few of their players really start to blossom.

I’m going for Eintracht Frankfurt on a draw no bet. They should win this one, but just in case of a draw I’ll get my bet back. You’ll find the best odds for this bet with Bethard at 4/5 (1.80)
