Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht FrankfurtGerman Bundesliga, KO: 14:30 Jun 13, 2020, Olympiastadion
HERTHA Berlin will be aiming to bounce back from their first defeat since the restart when they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Olympiastadion on Saturday afternoon.
The capital club looked like potential relegation candidates before the Bundesliga came to a halt, however, new boss Bruno Labbadia made a dream start to life in Die Alte Dame dugout by steering his side to an eye-catching 10 points form 12.
Indeed, Hertha fell to a 1-0 defeat Borussia Dortmund last time out, however, the Berliners fought bravely and they will be desperate to get back to winning ways when faced with Frankfurt this weekend.
Frankfurt's season has been plagued with inconsistency and that was evident again last Saturday when the Eagles lost 2-0 at home to lowly Mainz.
Adi Hutter's (above) troops looked like a team on the up following back-to-back away wins away at Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen respectively, however, last weekend's shock setback once again showcased Frankfurt's unpredictability.
Consequently, the Eagles start the latest round of fixtures occupying 11th place in the table and although their points return of 35 should see them safe from relegation, a late push for the final European berth now looks improbable.
Hertha Berlin are seeking a third home win on the spin and the capital club are 21/20 with UniBet to claim all three points on Saturday.
Hertha Berlin games of late, last weekend aside, have been profitable for me since the restart and that's mainly due to the capital club being involved in goal-heavy contests.
Labbadia's men lit up the Bundesliga when hitting 10 goals across their first four matches back and Frankfurt will be hard tasked when trying to tame a red-hot Hertha Berlin team who are brimming with confidence.
The Berlin outfit have made the net bulge at least twice in six of their last seven league outings and across that stretch of games they are averaging an eye-catching 2.2 goals-per game.
With that in mind, I was pleasantly surprised to see two or more Hertha Berlin goals priced up here at 4/5 with Bet 365 – a bet that has banked profit in six of Hertha's last seven Bundesliga assignments.
What's more, Frankfurt, despite recording back-to-back wins away from home, have collected just 13 points on the road this season and they will travel to the German capital off the back of a brave but energy-sapping showing away at Bayern Munich in midweek.
However, it's also worth noting that Frankfurt have scored two or more goals in their last three league games on the road – including eye-catching braces away at both Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg.
Furthermore, six of the Eagles last seven games have generated over 2.5 goals and five of Hertha's last seven games have featured three or more strikes.
A repeat here looks a bit short at a best 4/7 with PaddyPower, however, an alternative angle that I like the look of with the same bookmaker is the 6/5 on offer of 3+ match goals, 3+ match cards & 6+ match corners.
The reverse fixture ended 2-2 and both respective sides are averaging nine and 10.5 corners per game respectively and I'm happy to add three or more cards in what should be an open and entertaining encounter at the Olympiastadion on Saturday afternoon.
