Eintracht Frankfurt is welcoming RB Leipzig to Commerzbank Arena in round 8 in the German Bundesliga.
Eintracht is struggling, and they haven’t won any of their last 6 games, 4 in Bundesliga, and 2 friendly games. With 10 points, 10 scored goals, and 12 conceded goals, Eintracht is in 11th place in the Bundesliga standings. Silva has been in good form, and he has scored 5 goals for Eintracht so far this season. Dost has added 2 goals. Kamada and Barkok have each added 2 assists. Ache and Younes are both injured, and they will miss this match. Eintracht was playing against Stuttgart on the road in their last Bundesliga game, and they were solid with 61% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 7 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. Eintracht was losing 2-0 at half time, but they were able to get back in the game until the 75th minute. Eintracht has had a few good chances until the end, but they weren’t able to score any more goals. The finals score of this game was 2-2. Eintracht has entered this season with a hope to reach the Europa League, and they are not far away, but they better start winning games if they don’t want to fall behind, they certainly have the quality to do so.
Leipzig might be the best team overall in Bundesliga this season, they certainly are the best defensive team. Leipzig has scored 15 goals so far while conceding only 4 goals in 7 games. With 16 points, Leipzig is in 2nd place in the standings. In their last game in Bundesliga, Leipzig was hosting Freiburg, and they were the dominant team with 56% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 84% of the correct passes. Leipzig has won this match 3-0. In the Champions League, Leipzig is in 2nd place with 6 points, same as Manchester United at the top. Angelino is the leading goalscorer for Leipzig with 3 goals, while Sabitzer, Poulsen, and Forsberg have each added 2 goals. Dani Olmo has added 3 assists. Hartmann, Laimer, Klostermann, Halstenberg, Upamecano, and Hwang are all injured, and they will miss this game. Leipzig is one of the best teams in Germany, and they will definitely be a big competition to Bayern and Borussia Dortmund this season, and if they continue playing this well, they could go far in the Champions League as well.
Frankfurt hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, but they are also undefeated at home in Bundesliga this season. Leipzig is definitely the better team here, but they might rest some players because they are playing in the Champions League next week. Taking everything into consideration, I would still give the advantage to Leipzig, but I will pick something on goals here.
