THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have been somewhat inconsistent of late but they are still unbeaten at home in the Bundesliga this season, including impressive recent wins over Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen.
  • Captain David Abraham has been suspended for seven weeks after pushing Freiburg coach Christian Streich in their last game, so Evan N'Dicka has a chance to reestablish himself in the side.
  • Gelson Fernandes was also sent off against Freiburg so he is suspended for this one, but Almamy Toure is closing in on a return and Filip Kostic should shake off a knock.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Ronnow; Hasebe, Hinteregger, N'Dicka; Da Costa, Sow, Kohr, Rode, Kostic; Andre Silva, Goncalo Paciencia

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

Doubtful: Toure (Injured), Kostic (Injured)

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg may have been glad of the international break following four successive defeats in all competitions and this will be a test for coach Oliver Glasner after a strong start to the season.
  • There was good news for Glasner over the break with Koen Casteels, Xaver Schlager, Admir Mehmedi and Daniel Ginczek all returning to training and featuring in an internal friendly, and Glasner has confirmed that Casteels will start in goal.
  • That leaves Ignacio Camacho as the only remaining long-term absentee but Yunus Malli will miss this game with a back problem.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Casteels; Knoche, Tisserand, Bruma; William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon; Mehmedi, Weghorst, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Malli (Injured)

Doubtful: Ginczek (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Wolfsburg have won on each of their last three visits to Frankfurt but Eintracht have turned the Commerzbank-Arena into a fortress again this season, collecting 14 points from six Bundesliga games at home. The visitors' form has deteriorated recently, so the Eagles should claim another home win.
