Eintracht Frankfurt forward Kevin-Prince Boateng is expecting a tough game when they take on Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga on Sunday.
The Eagles will go into the game on the back of two winless games, with Coach Niko Kovac’s side sitting in ninth place, just two points and two places above Hertha on the table.
Frankfurt are looking for their first win in six attempts against the Berlin-based outfit, having drawn four and lost two while scoring ten goals in the process.
But Boateng is not expecting anything different from what the stats show and when the 30-year-old was asked his expectation on the game, he replied,”What should be my expectation? Going out, getting three points, coming back home.”
“The most important thing is to go back to zero, if we can do it and play our game, I think Berlin is a bit like us, they are also disgusting to play in, they are good, they run a lot, they sometimes cut in and work as a team, they have players like Kalou, Ibisevic, Leckie and Selke I can say that we have a bit more quality in our own ranks.”
Boateng left Hertha Berlin in a big money move to English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspurs in 2007.
