Two teams that will represent Germany in the Champions League this season face off when Eintracht Frankfurt play host to RB Leipzig at Deutsche Bank Park. Both teams head into the weekend’s meeting holding five points from four matches. Oliver Glasner will hope that his side have recovered from any lingering hangover after winning the Europa League in May lifted their spirits, with plenty of domestic and continental action ahead of them in the coming weeks. While Domenico Tedesco will hope for another win if they want to keep pace with the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table.
Having made a slow start to the season, Frankfurt finally claimed their first league win at the fourth time of asking with a thrilling 4-3 win away to Werder Bremen last weekend. Mario Gotze opened the scoring after only two minutes with his first league goal since returning to the Bundesliga from PSV Eindhoven in the summer transfer window, but Anthony Jung and Leanardo Bittencourt both struck within three minutes of each other to turn the game in the hosts’ favor. Yet another late Bremen comeback looked possible when Niclas Fullkrug dispatched a penalty in injury-time, but Die Adler held on for a crucial victory.
Leipzig, meanwhile, also claimed their first league victory of the season by dispatching Wolfsburg 2-0 at home last time out in the Bundesliga. Christopher Nkunku’s fifth-minute penalty gave the hosts a strong platform to build from in the game, although it was not until the France forward’s injury-time strike that the three points were finally secured. In truth, though, the Wolves were kept at arms length throughout the encounter, with Dani Olmo and Timo Werner both particularly guilty of profligacy in front of goal. The same could not be said in midweek, though, with Die Roten Bullen thrashing Teutonia Ottensen 8-0
