Eintracht Frankfurt backed for Bundesliga relegation ahead of Bayern Munich clash

The Eagles currently sit five points off the Bundesliga relegation zone.

Eintracht Frankfurt are the most backed team in our Bundesliga relegation market this week, at a best price of 40/1.

Odds on the Eagles going down have been cut by several bookmakers, to as short as 30/1, after they lost to Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend.

Since that defeat, 81% of bets on the relegation market through oddschecker have gone their way.

Eintracht were stunned by two early Gladbach goals on Saturday afternoon, with Alassane Plea firing the visitors in front after just 40 seconds. The home side battled back into the game and had plenty of chances of their own, but eventually went down 3-1.


They now face a trip to league leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday evening (17:30 BT Sport 1). Punters clearly expect that to be Eintracht’s fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions.

Adi Hutter’s side sit 13th in the Bundesliga, and though only five points shy of the relegation zone, they do have a game in hand on most of their rivals.

Prior to the return of German football, oddschecker conducted a study on each team’s fixture difficulty. Based on their remaining opponents and their home and away records, we actually found Eintracht to have one of the kindest schedules, with their opponents holding an average league position of 11th.

Nevertheless, back in the week before the restart, our friends at WhoScored noted that the then 66/1 about Eintracht might be a tad too big in their outright tips and preview.

WhoScored's Martin Laurence said: “In truth Adi Hutter's side will likely have too many goals in their ranks to slip into further trouble but their propensity to capitulate in matches certainly makes them an interesting outside bet for the drop. At 66/1, their six-point advantage over Duesseldorf in that regard is perhaps over-valued.”

oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Eintracht were 66/1 outsiders for relegation prior to the resumption of Bundesliga football at the weekend.

“With some bookies going as short as 30/1 already, punters are taking their chances given their odds will likely shorten further should they succumb to the imperious Bayern at the weekend.”
