Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to post a fifth consecutive Bundesliga win over TSG Hoffenheim when the two sides meet at the Commerzbank-Arena this weekend.
The hosts were first goal-scorers in both of their opening Bundesliga fixtures despite two of the four goals they netted across those matches coming beyond the hour-mark (W1, D1). That’s a sharp contrast to Frankfurt’s slow starting back in 2019/20 that saw them draw first blood in just 38.24% (13) of the 34 league games. Regardless, ‘Die Adler’ must be confident of getting on the scoresheet here, as they’ve scored at least once in all six of their previous top-flight H2Hs. Adding to this sentiment, Frankfurt registered a clear majority (61.02%) of their overall Bundesliga goals scored at home back last season (36/59). Far more prolific after half-time, Adi Hutter’s men recorded 63.89% (23) of their total 36 Bundesliga home goals last term in the second half of play.
Meanwhile, the visitors have enjoyed an outstanding start to the season so far, beating Koln 3-2 on the road in their curtain-raiser before brushing aside Bayern Munich 4-1 on Matchday 2. Maintaining a perfect Bundesliga start could be quite daunting here, considering Sebastian Hoeneß’s men have failed to beat Frankfurt in all four of their previous top-flight visits (D2, L2). Remarkably, ‘Die Kraichgauer’ Hoffenheim scored over 1.5 first-half goals on both of those occasions. Yet, against this backdrop, 70.37% of Hoffenheim’s away Bundesliga goals accrued back in 2019/20 arrived in the second half of play (19/27).
