THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten at home in the Bundesliga this season, although they were denied three points by an injury-time penalty against Werder Bremen last time out.
  • Marco Russ and first-choice goalkeeper Kevin Trapp are the only definite absentees for coach Adi Hutter, but midfielders Jonathan de Guzman and Lucas Torro have been absent recently and are lacking fitness.
  • Hutter will check on the fitness of Daichi Kamada, who returned from international duty with Japan on Wednesday, while captain David Abraham is likely to be recalled to the side.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ronnow; Hasebe, Hinteregger, Abraham; Da Costa, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Andre Silva, Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Trapp (Injured)

Doubtful: De Guzman (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured)

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

  • Bayer Leverkusen drew 1-1 at home to RB Leipzig two weeks ago and have lost just one of their last 13 Bundesliga matches.
  • Star man Leon Bailey returned to full training on Sunday and is expected to be available for the trip to Frankfurt, although he is by no means guaranteed a starting place.
  • Charles Aranguiz and Daley Sinkgraven have been ruled out after suffering injuries against Leipzig but captain Lars Bender is fit again having missed that game.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Hradecky; L. Bender, Tah, S. Bender, Wendell; Baumgartlinger, Demirbay; Havertz, Amiri, Bailey; Volland

Unavailable: Aranguiz (Injured), Sinkgraven (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Frankfurt will want to avenge the 6-1 drubbing they received at Leverkusen in May but this should be another high-scoring encounter in any case. Leverkusen have scored 15 goals in their last five away Bundesliga outings, while the Eagles have found the net in all their league games this season.
