Next Saturday at 6:30pm GMT, on matchday 5 of the Bundesliga, we will see Frankfurt play Leipzig at the Commerzbank Arena.

When Leipzig visit the Commerzbank Arena they will be sat in ninth place in the League. Frankfurt, currently 11 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

Eintracht Frankfurt face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Time will tell, whether Frankfurt’s recent run of poor form is about to change. However Oliver Glasner will be keen to turn his season around with this game, following the recent defeat to Werder Bremen, which followed a disappointing 1-1 draw against FC Köln.

Also, with two draws in three matches, Manager Oliver Glasner has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With five points (1W, 1L and 2D), they are established in eleventh position in the League having won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost one game.

Playing at home, Frankfurt have drawn one game and lost one game.

Victory for Eintracht Frankfurt would take their points tally to 8 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Frankfurt, in terms of goals scored (7). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Randal Kolo Muani (2), Daichi Kamada (2), and Djibril Sow (1). Frankfurt’s defensive record in the Bundesliga has so far been very weak, with 11 goals conceded in their last fixtures. This is an issue that Oliver Glasner urgently needs to address within the dressing room.

Frankfurt are likely to be missing two of their key players when they start Saturday’s game, due to injury and illness.

RB Leipzig face his opponents with equal points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Domenico Tedesco will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Wolfsburg 2-0 and Union Berlin 2-1

Also, Leipzig have enjoyed excellent form all season. Their position is ninth in the League and they have five points, that is, 1W, 1L and 2D having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost one game.

Leipzig will travel to Frankfurt with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one dart and one defeat.

A win in this fixture would take RB Leipzig’s points to 8 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring rate of six goals (5 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Christopher Nkunku (4), Willi Orban (1), and Timo Werner (1). Leipzig have conceded five goals.

Leipzig’s squad has depth, but even so, Domenico Tedesco is likely to be missing three of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
