Eintracht Frankfurt are heading into the match full of confidence, having won all of their last three games. Last time out, the Eagles got the better of Moenchengladbach courtesy of Jesper Lindstorm’s brace and one goal from Eric Junior Edimbe. It was Frankfurt’s sixth league-win of the campaign, taking their points tally to 20 from 11 games. The Eagles are currently sitting at the fourth position in the German top flight standings. Meanwhile, in the Champions League, Frankfurt’s lone victory came against Marseille (0-1) last month. Their latest European match against Tottenham ended in a 2-3 defeat.
Marseille, on the other hand, began their Champions League campaign with back-to-back defeats against Spurs and Frankfurt before turning their fortunes in the home and away fixtures against Sporting Lisbon. After thrashing the Green and Whites 4-1 on home soil, the Olympians secured a convincing 2-0 victory in Lisbon on October 12. Matteo Guendouzi and Alexis Sanchez netted in the first half to help the French outfit take all three points at Estadio Jose Alvalade. But the Phocaeans couldn’t keep up the momentum, as they suffered successive Ligue 1-defeats against PSG and Lens in the following matches.
