The Frankfurt attacker has set sights on beating familiar foes Hertha Berlin when the two sides cross paths on Sunday

Eintracht Frankfurt star Kevin-Prince Boateng is confident about their chances of picking three points in Sunday's Bundesliga trip to Hertha Berlin.

The Eagles are seeking to return to winning ways following last weekend's disappointing home defeat to Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

“We want to go there, win and then head back home," Boateng told his club's official website.

"We hope we can keep another clean sheet in Berlin. If we manage that, then we can win the game. I’m sure of that. 

"We have lot of quality in the squad and we’ve been training very well. It’ll be a tough game, though.

“They’re a strong team. They’re energetic and they fight hard. 

"They play as a unit, they can carve you open at times and they also have some really good individual players who can change a game. 

"They’re similar to us in that sense.”

Sunday's game is no ordinary game for Boateng.

Having passed through their youth ranks, the Berlin-born made his professional debut at no other side than Hertha in 2005.

It was the true begging of a career that has since sent him to seven clubs in England, Italy, Spain and Germany.

“It’s always nice to go back to my home city," he said.

"I grew up in Berlin, a big chunk of my family live there and I got the opportunity to become a professional at Hertha. 

"I’ll always be grateful to the club for that.

"I’m very much looking forward to running out at the Olympic Stadium again.”

Boateng joined Frankfurt in August on a three-year-deal after his time with Spanish outfit Las Palmas.

He has so far made 13 league appearances, involving 11 starts and two goals, for the Eagles.
