Deutsche Bank Park
Weeks 28 of the Bundesliga returns to action with a vital meeting between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach at the Deutsche Bank Park on Saturday. Eintracht Frankfurt will want to snap a six-game losing streak in the Bundesliga when they play Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday evening while the away team will be hoping to win their second game away from home under Daniel Farke.
Eintracht Frankfurt is now eighth in the league rankings and has been pretty good this season. The hosts were defeated 3-1 by Bayer Leverkusen in their previous encounter and will aim to rebound this weekend.
Borussia Monchengladbach is now tenth in the Bundesliga rankings and has not been at their best this season. Last week, the away team defeated VfL Wolfsburg 2-0 and will try to replicate that success in this match.
Although Eintracht Frankfurt is going through a difficult period, the away has only 1 away win this season. We expect over BTTS and over 2.5 goals in this game.
Eintracht Frankfurt (LDDLDL)
Eintracht Frankfurt's record of three points from their past six matches is the lowest in the Bundesliga. This unwanted record has may affect the home team's chances of qualifying for the Champions League for the second consecutive season.
Although these losses may affect the teams, Eintracht Frankfurt's season is far from done, especially with a DFB-Pokal semi-final match against struggling Stuttgart in a few weeks. Winning a second major trophy in two seasons after winning the Europa League in May, will boost well for the Frankfurt-based club.
Eintracht Frankfurt's possible starting lineup:
Defenders: Jakic, Hasebe, Tuta;
Midfielders: Buta, Rode, Sow, Lenz; Borre, Kamada;
Striker: Kolo Muani
Borussia Monchengladbach (LDLDDW)
Borussia Monchengladbach has considerably less to play for than their opponents, even though they can move three points behind the home side if they can secure their second away league win of the season.
The away side ended a five-match losing streak by defeating Wolfsburg 2-0 at Borussia-Park on Sunday, with goals from Nathan Ngoumou and Marcus Thuram either side of halftime keeping Farke's side's hopes of finishing in the top half of the table alive by moving them four points behind the Wolves in ninth place. Matches ahead for Borussia Monchengladbach make it difficult for the team to surpass the home side on the league table. Borussia Monchengladbach will face Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund, and Leverkusen on either side of two trips to Stuttgart in a week.
After all, only VfL Bochum and Hertha Berlin have collected fewer points on the road in the Bundesliga this season, suggesting that Farke's side's prospects of winning a positive result at Deutsch-Bank Park this weekend are minimal.
Borussia Monchengladbach's possible starting lineup:
Defenders: Scally, Itakura, Elvedi, Bensebaini;
Midfielders: Kramer, Kone; Hofmann, Neuhaus, Stindl;
