There’s every reason to see this as one of the toughest games to predict – one side is higher in the league, but the other has home advantage, and the bookies find them hard to separate too. A draw – with both teams scoring – is 13/5 with Dafabet, and that seems like a reasonable call. Among the Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig best odds must be the 20-1 Betway are offering that Frankfurt top-scorer Sebastien Haller will score first and the game ends all square. Meanwhile, RB’s main striker Timo Werner is 13/8 to score in the game, with Coral. That’s pretty good value too.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips – A Form Guide

Frankfurt: No Distractions

Eintracht Frankfurt have been something of a sleeping giant of German football over recent years. Their promotion back to the top division in 2012 was not followed by immediate success, but this season, without the European distractions faced by many teams, they’ve put together a good run of form and sit in the Champions League spots.

If anything, they’ve been let down more often than not by their home form – just four wins from their 11 games at Commerzbank-Arena, and most of their 36 points have been picked up on the road. The goals of Seb Haller (12) have been instrumental, as he has usually played as the lone striker; he’s ably deputised by Luka Jovic, a loanee from Benfica, who has chipped in with four this season.

Eintracht look for guidance to the former Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng. Signed from Las Palmas on a free in the summer, he provides experience and the occasional goal – he and Jovic netted in the recent 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Last time out, Eintracht beat bottom club Koln 4-2, and the game was notable for the attacking contribution of defenders Marco Russ and Simon Falette, who both scored key goals. Frankfurt will lean heavily on that team contribution if they are to stay in the top spots.

RB Leipzig: The “Best” Of The “Rest”

With plenty of money to throw around, the one thing RB can’t buy – apart from popularity – is the pull and the prestige of Bayern Munich. That may come, in time, but their second place in last year’s Bundesliga may be followed by another this year – they’ve been getting the results to back up their spending.

They also have the wiliness of Ralf Rangnick to help them turn their squad into a functioning team. The signing on loan of Everton’s Ademola Lookman was looked at with curiosity in Germany and in England, right up until Lookman scored an enthralling solo goal after less than ten minutes of his debut.

With Lookman, Werner and future Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita among others to make a positive contribution for the side this season, RB have beaten Schalke, Moenchengladbach and Augsburg in recent games. It’s their ability to thrive on the big occasion that will make them many people’s pick to win this game in Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig match previews.

RBL will be keen to get back into the Champions League after a disappointing debut campaign in that competition. Drawn with Besiktas, Porto and Monaco, they finished outside the top two and dropped into the Europa League, where they defeated Napoli 3-1 this week

Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig Preview: Their recent meetings

Ten years ago, RB Leipzig did not exist, so there’s not a huge history between these sides. Nonetheless, Frankfurt will be looking for some measure of revenge in this game, having lost when they visited the Red Bull Arena earlier in the season. On that occasion, goals from Jean-Kevin Augustien and Werner put RB in the box seat before a late consolation from Eintracht winger Ante Rebic.

The last time the sides met in Frankfurt, Leipzig also took a two-goal lead, before being pulled back to a 2-2 draw. Should this guide your Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig betting tips for today? Perhaps not – it was on the last day of the season, between a team safe in mid-table and a team that had secured second place. However, with defeats on their only two visits to the Leipzig side, Eintracht will be relieved that this contest is a home one for them.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig Prediction: A Match On A Knife-Edge

Two places and two points separate these sides in the league, and neither will be keen to give up very much in this head-to-head contest. This is the kind of game that is often decided by the odd goal, or ends in a draw with both teams cursing missed opportunities.

In truth, that’s how we at betting.org see it shaping up. It could be a home win or an away win very easily, but this one is so much on a knife-edge – the teams have almost identical records in their last five matches – that not calling it as a draw seems reckless. A draw won’t greatly hurt either side, and won’t stymy anyone’s momentum much, and the teams are very evenly-matched, so a draw it is.

Both teams have the attacking players to make an impact, if you pressed us for an Eintracht Frankfurt vs RB Leipzig prediction on the score we’d lean towards 1-1, but there could be more goals than that.
