Hertha Berlin vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: 13 August 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
UEFA Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt will travel to the capital to battle Hertha after two very tough fixtures against the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid within the previous eight days.
Frankfurt were brutally hammered by the defending Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich in the first fixture of the 2022/23 campaign.
They conceded six goals on the home patch last Friday, including five in the first half of the contest.
To make matters worse for Austrian manager Oliver Glasner, Eintracht Frankfurt lost one of their key players Filip Kostic who has just recently completed his move to Italian Serie A heavyweights Juventus.
Eintracht Frankfurt still have a great group of players as they have prepared for the UEFA Champions League football by signing a number of acquisitions.
Out of all of them, we must mention the likes of Mario Gotze and Randal Kolo Muani. The latter had an amazing season with Nantes last time out in Ligue 1.
Kolo Muani has immediately made an impact delivering a goal against Bayern Munich shortly after coming on from the bench in the second half.
Eintracht will have a nice chance to rebound from this tough defeat here against Hertha who once again disappointed heavily in the capital city derby, falling easily to Union Berlin 3-1 last weekend.
