RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
The second runners up of the previous edition, RB Leipzig, showed no mercy to the Bundesliga debutantes, Union Berlin, in their opener on the road last week and slotted four unanswered goals into the back of the net to clinch all three points in the new campaign.
Despite having a dismal run in the domestic league last time out, Eintracht Frankfurt got off on the right foot on matchday one and picked up a narrow 1-0 win against Hoffenheim at home. The squad certainly dominated that clash and managed to register seventeen attempts at goal, eight of which were right on target.
However, the visitors will be up against a much more competitive side this weekend, that too away from the comforts of their home. With Leipzig sporting a two-match winning streak across all competitions, things look certain to go downhill Eintracht Frankfurt in this one.

RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
The home team showed that they meant business right from the opening game when they ran riot all over Berlin. Leipzig were a tough bunch to take down on home soil last time around as well and admitted defeat just once in the Bundesliga.
Furthermore, Frankfurt have not been convincing in their trips on the road, and just one win to boast of in their last six outings. Paying heed to the fact that they have never got the better of Leipzig in any of their previous visits to this venue either, it looks more than likely that Frankfurt will be the ones at the losing end this Saturday.
Both the teams have found the back of the net in four of their last six matchups with each other. Considering that they were also clinical in slotting the ball home in their openers too, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet by the end of the ninety minutes.
