Eintracht Frankfurt (LLDDL)

Also being knocked out of the Champions League after suffering defeats in both legs is another sign of serious decline of the team.

In their last 5 matches, Frankfurt had 3 losses and 2 draws.
Frankfurt are currently in 6th position, with 40 points from 25 matches. They had 11 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses, with a goal ratio of 46:36.
Bochum seemed to have turned what looked like a total disaster around. After 5 straight losses, Bochum won their last 2 games, beating FC Koln 2-0 and Leipzig 1-0 before the break. Erhan Masovic received the plaudits for scoring the only goal against Leipzig, but the team had to play tight to preserve their lead and they did. In their last 5 matches, Bochum had 2 wins and 3 losses.
Bochum are currently in 14th spot, with 25 points from 25 matches. They had 8 wins, 1 draw and 16 losses, with a goal ratio of 27:56.

Expert Betting Tips
The ideal approach for Bochum would be to grab a goal and hold onto it and while that may be a tactic that works, Eintracht Frankfurt would also likely apply the same strategy. Frankfurt has not given off any indication of a turnaround, but who knows? A lot can happen in the space of 12 days. And Frankfurt have a lot at stake if they lose this match, as Wolfsburg are chasing closely behind for the 5th position.
