<div><h2>Freiburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, November 10, at Dreimstadion</strong></a></p><p>Eintracht Frankfurt should be full of confidence after thumping Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich 5-1 at the weekend. Jerome Boateng was sent off in the ninth minute for Bayern, but Eintracht were utterly ruthless. The defeat was so bad that Bayern felt compelled to sack manager Niko Kovac afterwards. Now they head to Freiburg in a bid to leapfrog Christian Streich’s side in the table. Freiburg are fifth in the standings after battling to a 2-2 draw with Werder Bremen last time out, and they should make life difficult for the visitors on Sunday.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Freiburg had midfielder Janik Haberer sent off for a second bookable offence in that 2-2 draw with Werder, so he will be suspended for this game. Despite going down to 10 men, they salvaged a 2-2 draw after Nils Petersen grabbed his second of the game in the 93<sup>rd</sup> minute. The 30-year-old is now their top scorer this season, with five goals. Star striker Luca Waldschmidt is out injured, so Lucas Holer has partnered Peterson in attack. Goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow is also out for the hosts, leaving Mark Flekken to deputise.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Eintracht sold their two most valuable players last summer, with Luka Jovic moving to Real Madrid and Sebastian Haller going to West Ham for a combined €100 million. That left them without a strikeforce, but they went out and spent almost €60 million on signing a number of interesting recruits. Martin Hinteregger joined from Augsburg and he has anchored their defence well and Djibril Sow has slotted nicely into the midfield.</p><p>Dutch striker Bas Dost also moved to Frankfurt and he has struck up a solid strike partnership with Goncalo Paciencia, who has scored six goals already this season. Eintrach also boast the considerable talents of Andre Silva, who has had to content himself with a place on the bench. Goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was a strong signing, but he is injured, along with Almamy Toure and Jonathan de Guzman.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Eintracht have the strongest home record in the Bundesliga, but they do not travel well and they have lost three of their four away games this season. Freiburg have two wins, two draws and one defeat from five home matches, so it looks hard to call the result of this game. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has paid off in each of Eintracht Frankfurt’s last four games in all competitions, so that might be the way to go in this match. It has also paid off in each of Freiburg’s last three matches, and both of these teams are better going forwards than they are in defence.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Boyle Sports">Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 1.87 (20/23) with Boyle Sports</a></strong></p></div>
