Bundesliga – Eintracht Frankfurt at home to FC Köln
With Champion’s League positions always a key motivation, fourth placed Cologne remain in contention as they travel to sixteenth placed Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt have one point to their name, going into this tie
Losing home to Bayern Munich 1-6, which followed them drawing away to Hertha 1-1, this is a worrying run of form for Frankfurt Manager Oliver Glasner, who goes into this fixture, knowing that only a positive result will be good enough.
Also, with one draws in one game, Frankfurt need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. Their position is sixteenth in the League and they have one point, that is, 0W, 1L and 1D having drawn one game and lost one game.
Frankfurt have lost one game of their one League matches at home this season.
A victory for Eintracht Frankfurt would put them on 4 points.
Frankfurt may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, FC Köln have managed to gain four points
With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (2-2) draw against RB Leipzig, Cologne will be keen to improve on that result in this game.
Also, a draw statistic of one in one game is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Steffen Baumgart’s men wishes for ultimately. With a fourth position in the league and 1 wins, 0 losses and 1 draws, they currently have four points in the League having won one game and drawn one game.
Playing away from home, Cologne have drawn one game.
A win in this fixture would take FC Köln’s points to 7 in the League.
Cologne’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Steffen Baumgart, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
