RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt
2017/18 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 23rd September 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig.
The wounded Red Bulls welcome Eintracht Frankfurt in the round 6 of Bundesliga in Leipzig. The hosts are under the immense pressure as the season is rolling on, while Eintracht are slowly building the momentum up towards the last-season’s performances.
Red Bulls are sitting in the lower part of the table with seven points earned. They are struggling to achieve the consistency – mostly because they are now competing in UEFA Champions League, and their squad depth isn’t quite deep. Following the draw with Monchengladbach and the defeat in Augsburg, they are now winless for two games and they will be under the pressure as they host Eintracht.
Niko Kovac’s men snatched an important triumph on Wednesday in Cologne as they bested FC Koln with the minimal result of 0-1. After three games, they are now the second-best away team in Bundesliga with a draw and two victories. They are yet to concede a goal on the road this season, so their tactic for Leipzig visit is clear – sit back, defend, and wait for counter-attacking opportunities.

RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
RB Leipzig will play in UEFA Champions League next week, so the rotations here are a must. We can expect a low-scoring match as Eintracht will try to defend, but if one of the two sides opens the scoring early on we might see a competitive and thrilling encounter.
