Hertha Berlin are in horrible form...

Hertha are on a five-match losing streak and they now have one of the worst defensive records in the Bundesliga, with more than two goals per game conceded. Eintracht are one of those teams that look strong at home and dreadful on the road, so they will be keen to seize all three points on Friday. They have struggled in recent meetings with Hertha Berlin, but they are the better team this season.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Eintracht battered Bayern Munich 5-1 on November 2 and caused the champions to sack manager Niko Kovac. Since then they have suffered three straight defeats, as they have been let down by a lack of discipline. Gelson Fernandes and David Abraham were both sent off in a 1-0 defeat to Freiburg, and captain Abraham was handed a long ban for barging the opposition manager to the floor. They kept all 11 men on the pitch in their next game, a 2-0 home defeat to Wolfsburg, but Dominik Kohr saw red in a 2-1 defeat away at Mainz on Monday. He will be suspended for this game, along with Abraham, and Eintracht need to fix this disciplinary problem. Yet they did beat Arsenal 2-1 in between those league defeats, with Daichi Kamada putting in an attacking masterclass, so that should provide some encouragement for fans.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Hertha Berlin found themselves playing against 10 men for half of their game against Dortmund on Saturday, but they still lost 2-1. They have only kept one clean sheet all season, and this leaky defence could prove their undoing as they are now third from bottom in the table. Hertha Berlin have been fortunate with injuries this season, and Jurgen Klinsmann has a full-strength squad to choose from for this match. However, a back three led by Dedryck Boyata has been brutally exposed of late, with 14 goals conceded in their last five games, which does not bode well for this trip to Frankfurt.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>It seems risky to bet on Eintracht Frankfurt in this game, as they have lost their last three matches and they have not beaten Hertha Berlin here since 2014. Yet Hertha’s form has been absolutely woeful. Ante Covic was sacked, but Klinsmann’s arrival has not been enough to galvanise this struggling group of players. Eintracht have won four of their seven home games this season, leaving them with the third best home record in the Bundesliga, while Hertha have lost four of their seven away games.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">Eintracht Frankfurt to win at 1.88 (7/8) with Betway</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
