Hannover – Eintracht Frankfurt
Hannover 96 hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in a match from the 23th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this fixture on Sunday night.
This season is not good for the home side. Right now Hannover 96 are 17th in the league standings, being positioned in the relegation zone. At this moment they have just 14 points won, being 2 points behind the 16th Stuttgart and the relegation playoff zone. So far in the league Hannover have a record of just 3 wins, 5 draws and 14 defeats. The danger for them of relegation is pretty real here.
In their last five matches Hannover 96 won only once – against Nurnberg, suffering four defeats as well. In their last game Thomas Doll’s boys suffered a 0-3 defeat against Hoffenheim away from home. Joelinton, Ishak Belfodil and Kerem Demirbay scored for Hoffe, who outplayed Hannover all over the pitch.
On the other hand Eintracht Frankfurt are 7th in the standings with 34 points, being just behind Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen. The DFB Pokal winners are aiming for another European qualification for next season. So far Eintracht have a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 6 defeats in the league.
In their last five games Eintracht are in a really weird run of results. They won against Freiburg, but after that they made four consecutive draws. In the last of them Eintracht won a point during the 1-1 draw with Borussia M’gladbach at home. Danny da Costa opened the score for the team from Frankfurt, but Denis Zakaria equalised for M’gladbach in the end of the game.
During the week Eintracht Frankfurt had a game in Europa League as well. They celebrated an amazing 4-1 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, qualifying for the 1/8-finals of the competition.
