Cologne vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Cologne Double Chance (3/5)

  • The RheinEnergieStadion is a bogey ground for Frankfurt and they have won on only one of their last 18 visits there.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have won only one of their last five away games in the Bundesliga.

Eintracht Frankfurt are favourites to claim maximum points this weekend, though Die Adler have never found the going easy at the RheinEnergieStadion – a venue where they failed to win 17 times in their last 18 visits. With that record providing impetus for the hosts, they are our pick in the double chance market to kick off our Cologne vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions.

Player to Watch – Jeff Chabot

Cologne fans have had little to celebrate this season though the club’s supporters have at least been enthused about the performances of defender Jeff Chabot. The 25-year-old has completed an impressive 3.8 clearances and 1.7 interceptions at centre-half this term, and he could have a big part to play again on Saturday.
