Bayer Leverkusen will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt at Bay Arena in a bid to cement their qualification for the next season’s Champions League competition.
Leverkusen are in the 4th position with 48 points, a point behind Hertha Berlin in the 3rd place and they are looking to get something out of this game to either go ahead into third position or maintain their 4th spot in the league.
Meanwhile E.Frankfurt are in the battle of survival as they are in the 17th position with 27 points, 3 points of safety. A win in this match which looks difficult could give them a chance of avoiding the drop zone depending on results else where but anything less than a win will spell doom for the visitors.
Leverkusen are in top form, they are on a 4 game winning streak, they have Kept a clean sheet in their last 4 Bundesliga games and also they are unbeaten in their last 5 Bundesliga games.
Eintracht Frankfurt’s form is nothing to right home about, they have won just 1 game in their last 6 Bundesliga games, they are also poor away as they are without a win in their last 8 away games and currently they are on a 4 game loosing streak away.
Eintracht have failed to score in 6 of their last 8 Bundesliga matches.
