Early Bundesliga Fixture Pits Frankfurt Against HoffenheimPublished December 9, 2016 by Florin P
Frankfurt aims for its fourth consecutive win in the Bundesliga, as it takes on Hoffenheim who hasn’t lost a match the entire season. (7:30 p.m UK Time).
Frankfurt lost no game at home this season and if they continue this trend with a victory over Hoffenheim they will climb on the podium. Competition is intense at this level and they are unlikely to maintain this position until the end of the season. For the time being, the top priority is to extend the invincible run while breaking the visitors’ own streak.
Dominant Home Pitch Display from Hoffenheim
Hoffenheim is one of the pleasant surprises of this Bundesliga season, undefeated after 13 rounds. Most of their victories were claimed in front of the fans, but their performance on the road was also impressive. After splitting points in three regular-season games, they fired back with an emphatic victory over Koln.
Their opponents played defensive football and that proved to be their downfall, as the hosts were able to exercise constant pressure. This is unlikely to happen this Friday, when they travel to Frankfurt to play against an offensive minded team. It helps that they have no players injured ahead of this fixture and can count on Wagner to spearhead the offensive.
Deadly on the Counterattack
Frankfurt doesn’t play positional football and scores most of its goals on the counterattack. Dortmund fell victim to their strategy and allowed two goals on the road. The hosts are highly motivated and for the first time in many years confident in their abilities. The specter of relegation is no longer looming and they can afford to play aggressively in front of their fans.
Something’s got to give when two invincible teams meet and that’s why bookies have a hard time pricing the combatants. Frankfurt is amazing at home and bet365 Sports offers great odds on them to extend the invincible run. Risk-averse punters can minimize the risks and take odds of 9/10 on a draw no bet wager. If both squads manage to avoid defeat, at least the stakes will be promptly refunded.
