Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach Preview
Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia M’gladbach face off each other in a highly-anticipated Bundesliga fixture on Saturday at the Commerzbank-Arena.
Adi Hutter's Eintracht had a packed season before the March interruption as they were battling on three fronts – the German Cup semifinals, UEFA Europa League and the Bundesliga. Eintracht ended the period before the break badly – plunging to three consecutive Bundeliga defeats – 4-0 to Borussia Dortmund, 1-2 to Union Berlin and 4–0 Bayer Leverkusen.
That dismal run has left them in the 12th spot with 28 points and only 10 clear of the automatic relegation places.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach Team News
As for team news, 34-year old centre-back Marco Russ could be expected to make his first appearance this season after his recovery from cancer.
Striker Bas Dost and midfielder Lucas Torro should have recovered in this two-month gap and will probably feature for the May 16th clash.
Borussia M’gladbach's form has been inconsistent and a far cry from the sterling performances during the October – December phase of last year when they topped the Bundesliga table.
Some patchy displays during this year have caused them to slip to the 4th spot before the league came to a halt in March.
Die Fohlen “the Foals” are currently 6 points behind table-toppers Bayern Munich on 49 points with a loss, a draw and three wins in their last five outings, including a 2-1 victory at home to FC Koln last time out.
For coach Marco Rose's team, midfielder Denis Zakaria will be one key player missing in Saturday's clash and will return only in the end of May.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach Stats
On a head to head basis, the previous 7 encounters between these two since 2017 has yielded two wins apiece for both with the last clash going in favor of Borussia M’gladbach 4-2 in October 2019.
Borussia M’gladbach have conceded in each of their last 7 Bundesliga outings but have also managed to score in them, thus making the odds for BTTS (Both Teams To Score) for Saturday's clash very high.
Eintracht Frankfurt are a tough nut to crack at home but that advantage could be nullified with no supporters in the stadium. This was visibility demonstrated when they were taken apart by Basel 0-3 in a mid-March Europa League clash in front of empty home stands.
Monchengladbach in their quest for 3 points on Saturday could resort to an all-out attack approach that could leave their defenses prone to counter-attacks. But then, they are the favorites with the UK betting sites to take May 16th's game at the Commerzbank-Arena.
