Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Koln Free Betting Tips
Looking at the last five Bundesliga games, Eintracht Frankfurt is by far the worst team. The Hessians were handed up to 12th place in the table and received the penultimate 1. FC Köln on Wednesday for the 16th round. While the SBU was 1-0 on Schalke last Sunday, the billy goats won the derby against Bayer Leverkusen in a totally surprising way.
Eintracht Frankfurt – statistics & current form
No other team in the league is longing for the winter break as Eintracht Frankfurt. This is understandable due to the many games that the SBU has in its legs. To date, the Hessians have played 29 competitive matches. In the calendar year 2019, they already had to play 20 Euro League games. Clear that the power will eventually run out. In the Bundesliga, Frankfurt have been waiting for a three-way since their 5: 1 victory over the record champions. In other words, they only got a lean counter from the last five rounds. At least they were able to fix their remaining in the Euro League with inhuman luck. Since FC Arsenal played 2-2 in the parallel game last Thursday, the home defeat of the SBU was of no further importance.
The fact that the game cost a lot of strength was noticed last Sunday in the away game at Schalke. In general, it was tough in the first round with slight field advantages for the miners. It was only after half an hour that they got their first goal, but Serdar failed due to Rönnow. Offensive nothing came from the SBU. Coach Hütter saw the probably weakest performance of his men this season and should have been happy when it was 0-0 in the break.
Frankfurters come out of the cabin a little bolder and found the first real goal opportunity on their part. But Kostic’s shot passed centimeters past the case. In return, Toure lost the ball in midfield, Schalke switched at lightning speed and Raman marked the 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute free-standing in front of Rönnow. 13 minutes later, all spectators witnessed the reddest card in football. After a long ball on Gacinovic, Nübel rushes out of his goal completely unmotivated and strikes the Frankfurt attacker down so much that he had to be replaced. Nübel was rightly put off and will not play anymore this year. Nevertheless, the Schalke managed to get the tight lead and sent the Frankfurt even deeper into the crisis.
For the SBU it is once again necessary to mobilize all forces for the last two rounds before Christmas. On Wednesday they receive 1. FC Köln and on match day 17 Eintracht must be the next promoted SC Paderborn.

1. FC Koln – statistics & current form
The absolute elevator team 1. FC Köln has changed the coach again after the bitter home bankruptcy against TSG Hoffenheim. Markus Gisdol is supposed to play the fireman. His record up to the last matchday is more than sobering. From three games, he only got a lean point with his new employer and he was presented with the red lantern. Quite surprisingly, the billy goats won the derby in their own stadium against Bayer 04 Leverkusen last weekend. It didn’t look like it, especially in the first round. The guests from Leverkusen, just 15 km away, had everything under control, but once again didn’t know what to do with the possession of the ball, and everyone in the country now knows that the Werkself are anything but accurate this season. In an uneventful game, the teams went goalless into the cabins.
The second round then started promisingly. Leverkusen was replaced and came through Amiri and Havertz to the first good chances. It was in this urgent phase that Dragovic saw the traffic light card on the Werkself side. It should be the crux of the encounter. Substitute Cordoba scored the highly acclaimed 1-0 lead in the 73rd minute. A short time later, after an assault, Bailey was sent off in red. The home side even came to 2-0 through Bornauw and in the end only celebrated their third win of the season in the 15th game.
The billy goats will continue in Frankfurt next Wednesday and on the last matchday before the winter break they will receive the also troubled SV Werder Bremen. It may well be that they leave the relegation zone before Christmas.

It is quite possible that Coach Gisdol will send the same team to the field as against Bayer Leverkusen.
Horn – Ehizibue, Bornauw, Czichos, Katterbach – Skhiri, Hector, Thielmann, Drexler, Jakobs – Modeste
