RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig
Eintracht Frankfurt have started the year well and they sit just five points behind the 4th placed rivals as they travel to Leipzig for their Matchday 21 clash, hoping to build on performances where they beat Freiburg and held off both Bremen on the road and Dortmund in front of the home crowd.
Die Adler will now hope to cause an upset at Red Bull Arena and seeing just one loss in their last seven Bundesliga trips will be a confidence booster, despite a tough challenge looming on the day. They have an Europa League trip to Shakhtar Donetsk coming up too and Adi Hutter will want his men to lift their team spirits.
RB Leipzig come into the match just days after the DFB Pokal clash against Wolfsburg, as they look to build on the wins over Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hannover – where they netted seven goals. They’ve proven themselves in the final third and will now surely want to do the same, despite losing on such consistency here early in January 2019.
