THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have lost three Bundesliga games on the spin since their stunning 5-1 win over Bayern a few weeks ago and find themselves in a disappointing 10th place in the table.
  • Kohr became the latest Frankfurt player to be shown a red card during Monday's defeat at Mainz so Fernandes could be recalled in midfield, or Hutter may revert to a 3-4-1-2 formation.
  • Andre Silva is likely to be recalled up front having been an unused substitute on Monday, particularly with fellow striker Dost still struggling with an injury, while Hasebe should return after illness.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Ronnow; Toure, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Da Costa, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Andre Silva, Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Trapp (Injured), Abraham (Suspended), Kohr (Suspended)

Doubtful: Dost (Injured), Hasebe (Illness)

HERTHA

  • Klinsmann's reign as Hertha BSC coach began with a 2-1 defeat at home to Borussia Dortmund last Saturday, their fifth straight loss in the league.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Jarstein completes his two-match suspension so Kraft will deputise between the sticks again after shaking off a knock last week.
  • Injured winger Leckie is the only other absentee for Klinsmann, who opted for a back three against Dortmund with Rekik recalled to the starting XI.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Kraft; Rekik, Stark, Boyata; Wolf, Grujic, Skjelbred, Mittelstadt; Darida; Selke, Lukebakio

Unavailable: Jarstein (Suspended), Leckie (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha BSC are the only two teams to have lost their last three Bundesliga games, so both could do with a result on Friday night. Frankfurt are generally strong at home and should get the better of the visitors, who have won just two of their last 13 away league matches.
