Eintracht Frankfurt H2H against RB Leipzig. The home team lost his games before the winter break and won in the last week 2:1 at Hoffenheim. Julian’s team is in superb form and has thirteen unbeaten games.
Four loses in a row before the Winter break and last one win against Hoffenheim
Despite winning for the first time this decade, Eintracht Frankfurt remains shaken after suffering a 75% loss rate across their last eight Bundesliga matches. Three of the previous four defeats in that sequence each saw Frankfurt concede 2+ goals inside one half while winning the other by a one-goal margin. Five of Frankfurt’s last six league outings on home turf have seen them score exactly twice in one half. They correctly did so in the first half in three of the previous four applicable home league games.
Leader of Bundesliga RB Leipzig is in superb form
RB Leipzig, by contrast, enters this clash unbeaten in 13 matches across all competitions. Each of the last four games in that sequence saw them score precisely three times, with 11 of their 12 goals scored in that quartet coming in the second half of play. Leipzig is also unbeaten in seven competitive road trips. In addition to averaging 2.83 goals across the six Bundesliga/UEFA Champions League fixtures in that run, Leipzig has also won the first half ‘to-nil’ in five of their last six competitive away win.

Players to watch
Bas Dost opened the scoring in Frankfurt’s last win. Five of his previous six strikes have been the first or last in games, each producing three total match goals.
Visiting hitman Timo Werner was at the double in Leipzig’s last win, and he now has two second-half braces across his previous three Bundesliga matches.
Stat attack: Frankfurt’s three former Bundesliga home H2Hs vs. Leipzig have each seen the first half won by a single goal either way.
A 60% majority (three) of RB Leipzig’s last five Bundesliga away goals from open play have arrived inside the 15 minutes after half-time.
Curiously, the Timo, as mentioned earlier, Werner accounts for all of that particular triple!
