Football predictions – Eintracht Frankfurt vs Nurnberg – Bundesliga Playoffs

Eintracht Frankfurt lost their last Bundesliga game away at Werder Bremen with the score of 1-0. That defeat sealed their faith for the entire season as Werder was their main counter candidate for relegation playoffs. The harshest part is that they only needed to get a draw in that game and conceded a very late goal. Overall, this season was a very poor one for Eintracht, constantly sitting at the bottom of the table. Out of the 9 victories Frankfurt got in this entire season, 6 of them came in front of their supporters, reason why I expect a strong performance from them. Coach Niko Kovac had a lot out trouble bringing the players’ morale back up and we are yet to see if he managed this operation fully. A very important factor for Kovac is that he has no players missing ahead of this clash.
Nurnberg had a terrific season in Bundesliga 2, managing to finish on the 3rd position of the podium. They were really close to direct promotion, but unfortunately for them, they lost some important games in the past month. They had a record of 19 wins out of their 34 games disputed and they had the second best offensive line in Bundesliga 2, very close to champions Freiburg. Nurnberg was also one of the best away sides this season, obtaining 8 victories out of 17 games played on foreign ground. Nurnberg’s defense is also top notch, proof of that being their latest 2 clean sheets, against St. Pauli and Paderborn.
Such playoff games are usually very hard to predict. Eintracht are the slight favorites in this clash, but Nurnberg has shown time and time again that they can live up to the Bundesliga expectations. Given the stakes, I expect both teams to play a very cautious football.
