THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have reached the DFB-Pokal final in two of the last three years and will be hoping to pull off a repeat of their 2-0 win at home to RB Leipzig 10 days ago.
  • Dost and Gacinovic will be assessed after missing Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Fortuna Dusseldorf while Russ, Lucas Torro and Fernandes are long-term absentees.
  • Coach Hutter is likely to rotate after a disappointing performance at the weekend but new signing Ilsanker is ineligible to face the team he joined from last week.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Trapp; Toure, Hasebe, Hinteregger, N’Dicka; Kohr, Rode; Chandler, Kamada, Kostic; Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured), Fernandes (Injured), Ilsanker (Ineligible)

Doubtful: Dost (Illness), Gacinovic (Injured)

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig were knocked off top spot in the Bundesliga at the weekend after drawing 2-2 at home to Borussia Monchengladbach but they have won seven of their last eight cup ties.
  • Coach Nagelsmann has no fresh injury concerns and could hand a debut to Angelino, who completed a loan move from Manchester City late on deadline day.
  • Sunday’s huge league match against Bayern is likely to come into Nagelsmann’s thinking when picking his team, so the likes of Ampadu and Haidara could be given some game time, while Mvogo should start in goal.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Mvogo; Mukiele, Ampadu, Upamecano; Sabitzer, Laimer, Adams, Nkunku; Haidara, Werner; Schick

Unavailable: Orban (Injured), Konate (Injured), Kampl (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Eintracht Frankfurt have not lost at home to RB Leipzig in four meetings, including an impressive 2-0 win in the league just a week and a half ago. Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash with Bayern is undoubtedly a priority for the visitors so Eintracht can take advantage and progress.
