Difficult task for Leverkusen
Who would have thought before the season that Bayer Leverkusen in a home game against Eintracht Frankfurt is not in the favorite role to see. This is exactly the constellation before the Saturday’s duel of the Schmidt-Elf against the Hesse, which are currently in the table clearly in front of Leverkusen. The kick-off of the meeting is on 11 February at 3:30 pm.
Before Leverkusen’s match against Frankfurt, they need not be swept around the bush. If the team loses against the Eintracht, it was probably with the office time Roger Schmidt’s at the “Werkself”. Anyone from this squad can only get nine out of the season after more than half of the season, should be history in Leverkusen quickly. Especially since in the last games two defeats had to be accepted again. The fact that they were not conceded against Gladbach (2: 3) and Hamburg (0: 1) who are currently in top form makes the situation only more precarious. Against Gladbach they played a 2-0 lead, in Hamburg Leverkusen found only a single chance in 90 minutes. It is therefore particularly troublesome in the game. This fact seems particularly bitter since Hakan Calhanoglu does not have one of the most important offensive weapons available for the rest of the season. The Turkish national player was suspended by the International Sports Court for not less than four months. According to this, the “Werkself” is likely to fall, especially in the case of standards, to dangerousness. With Chicharito, another important offensive building is made, as is Jonathan Tah not available. The first season’s duel with the Hesse was lost, Frankfurt won 2: 1. All in all, Leverkusen ended two of the last five matches with Eintracht as the winner, one time there was a draw.
While Leverkusen currently pushes the shoe, Frankfurt plays its best season in a long time. Currently you can even dream of the Champions League in Hessen. The team from Niko Kovac also gained extra self-confidence during the week, after all, they drew a 2-1 away win against Hannover 96 in the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup. It was, however, one of the few success stories in a foreign country for Frankfurt. In the Bundesliga, it was enough to win four victories, but all four of the four season finals were also ebendort. Nevertheless, Frankfurt can hope for an away win on Saturday. In contrast to Leverkusen, they won their last two Ligaspiele, so they already have three mandatory games in series without loss of points. Thus the teams of Schalke 04 (1: 0) and Darmstadt 98 (2: 0) were defeated. The stable defensive should be an advantage in the current harmlessness of Leverkusen, overall, the Eintracht only 15 conceded conceding. However: Niko Kovac also has to do without some alternatives on Saturday. Especially in the defensive area, where with David Abraham another troubled child joined in the course of the trophy in Hannover. Also Marco Russ, Varela, Anderson or Stendera are still injured. Most recently, the Kovac elite proved to be dangerous at the same time, proving morale against Hannover as well, and turned a 0: 1 deficit into a victory. A circumstance that should give additional self-confidence before the duel in Leverkusen.
Betting forecast Leverkusen Frankfurt
The weak performance of Bayers in the backround would actually suggest an away win of Hessen. Due to the double load and the weakness of the Kovac elf as well as the fact that Bayer will have to play for his coach, we will be a draw. Our tip: Tip X.
