Eintracht Frankfurt and Paderborn square off in Bundesliga soccer action from the Commerzbank Arena on Saturday morning.
Eintracht Frankfurt come into this match sitting in 9th place on 42 points with a record of 12 wins, 6 draws and 15 losses after a 1-1 draw with Koln in their last matchup. In the tie with Koln, Frankfurt fell behind just before halftime as Koln would score from the penalty spot, but Bas Dost would pull a goal back for Frankfurt in the 72nd minute. Frankfurt would have 60% possession in the second half, but also would have the lone shot on goal between the two sides, leaving the spoils to be shared between the two teams at full time. Andre Silva leads Frankfurt in scoring with 11 goals while Martin Hinteregger has 8 goals and Filip Kostic has a team-high 11 assists this season.
Paderborn enter their final Bundesliga match of the year in last place, preparing for relegation with 20 points and a record of 4 wins, 8 draws and 21 losses after a 3-1 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach in their last match. In the loss to Gladbach, Paderborn fell behind just four minutes into the game and the lead would hold into the second half where Sven Michel would tie the game at one for Paderborn. Uwe Hunimeier put Paderborn behind the proverbial eight ball with two yellow cards in a span of 10 minutes, resulting in his sending off, the frst yellow contributing to Monchengladbach getting a penalty which was converted to make it 2-1 Gladbach in the 55th minute. Monchengladbach added a 3rd goal in the 73rd minute and Paderborn wouldn’t have a response the rest of the way, leaving the match empty-handed once again. Dennis Srbeny and Streli Mamba each have a team-high 5 goals while Kai Proger has a team-high 6 assists for Paderborn this season. Leopold Zingerle is Paderborn’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.89 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.
This is a tough one to call as you have two teams playing for nothing but pride and Paderborn may be disappointed knowing that this is their last game in the top flight for at least a year. However, Eintracht Frankfurt’s games are averaging almost 3.5 goals per game this season, and while Paderborn have disappointed, I do think the visitors go down swinging here as well, so I’ll take my shot with the over 3.5 goals here as I think we see some fireworks to finish the season in this fixture.
