Wolfsburg has an 11 point deficiency to defeat to ensure a spot in the Europa League group stage. In any case, the ongoing success against Leverkusen has given them trust in bettering their home form. They have a greatly improved record in away games than at their backyard.
Frankfurt needs a few successes at the earliest opportunity. They are truly near the relegation zone and have not dominated a game in the league in 5 matchdays. They are as of now fourteenth in the wake of losing half of their matches up until now.
The hosts, 6th in the table, pulled off the most attractive consequence of the midweek fixtures when they won 4-1 in Leverkusen. Frankfurt, in the meantime, 12th in the table, keep on transportation goals however battled valiantly against Freiburg on Tuesday to draw 3-3. The guests can’t quit yielding goals – they have allowed in at least three in their last five games – so a stopgap solution for the issue is scoring more themselves. With that solution in mind, the form of Andre Silva is empowering.
On credit from Milan, Silva is a striker of remarkable potential who has failed to satisfy hopes since his big-money move to Italy in 2017. The first half of the season was a battle for Silva yet he’s increased his game since the turn of the year, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances, remembering two for his last three.
Wolfsburg produced a staggering presentation to stun in-form Bayer Leverkusen with a four-goal display away from home in midweek and they will be anxious to expand on that exhibition as they hope to harden their position in 6th spot.
Marin Pongracic put Wolfsburg ahead not long before the break yet a devastating 11-minute second-half spell saw the guests bag three goals through Maximilian Arnold, Renato Steffen and a second from Pongracic sealed the eye-catching triumph.
They conceded a late comfort however they won’t be worried by that in front of this conflict without form Eintracht Frankfurt and they could be helped by the arrival of Josuha Guilavogui after he failed to demonstrate his fitness in midweek.
Silva’s numbers aren’t adequate to terrify John Brooks. The Wolfsburg defender was a stone at the back during his side 4-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen, keeping Bundesliga star Kai Havertz calm.
Leverkusen had gone the past 12 Bundesliga games unbeaten before being dissected in staggering design by the Wolves. Depend on it, there is no sweet talk in the scoreline. If not for the fine goalkeeping of Lukas Hradecky, Wolfsburg would have had a considerably more earnest triumph. On the off chance that they play with the equivalent clinical panache against Frankfurt, they’ll match their midweek goalscoring accomplishments.
Eintracht Frankfurt finished their five-match losing streak in Bundesliga as they got a point at home to Freiburg yet they will be considering how they failed to get the triumph after they overwhelmed for most by far of the game.
Frankfurt laid attack on the Freiburg goal however just went in level at the break as Andre Silva evened out before the guests scored twice in three second-half minutes to take an undeserved lead.
Surprisingly, Frankfurt retaliated and goals from Daichi Kamada and Timothy Chandler rescued a point and they will like to repeat their midweek execution yet take a greater amount of their risks, even though they come into this challenge without Stefan Ilsanker who is prohibited.
Wolfsburg is a great and capable team that was playing against Leverkusen not long ago where they demonstrated a ton of character and the ability. Wolfsburg has had just 31% of ball possession in that game, however 9 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 69% of the right passes. This game was away from how great and created defense can influence the game in the attacking end.
Wolfsburg’s defense was remarkable, and they had the option to stop Leverkusen’s atomic offense and leave them on just 1 shot on goal. Another incredible thing about Wolfsburg in this match was that two of their four scored goals in this game were scored by their central defender Marin Pongracic. Wolfsburg has dominated this game 1-4 on the road and has gotten one bit nearer to the Europa League.
Wolfsburg is in the sixth spot in the standings with 42 points, 40 scored goals, and 34 yielded goals. Weghorst is the top goal scorer for Wolfsburg with 11 goals, while Arnold included 7 goals. The injury list for Wolfsburg is long to the point, however, some of them like Camacho, William, and Guilavogui are significant for Wolfsburg and would probably be in the starting lineup.
Eintracht has been strong throughout the last hardly any seasons, yet they lost a ton of significant players since last season, and that is costing Eintracht this season. Eintracht hasn’t won any of their last 5 games while yielding 11 goals in their last three games. The only beneficial thing is that Eintracht had the option to score a goal in each of the three of their last matches.
Eintracht is in the fourteenth spot with 29 points, and they are in genuine peril to enter the relegation zone if Eintracht doesn’t begin winning a few points. Hinteregger has scored 8 goals for Eintracht, while Paciencia included 7 goals. Cavar, Cetin, Stendera, Wiedwald, and Zimmermann are completely harmed and won’t play in this game. Eintracht was confronting Freiburg not long ago, and they were the better team with 62% of ball possession, 16 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 85% of the right passes.
Eintracht was losing 1-3 in 69th minute, yet by some marvel, Eintracht had the option to score 2 goals until the finish of the game, and this match finished in 3-3 draw.

That outcome was tremendous for Wolfsburg in their offer to make sure about the 6th place in the Bundesliga yet it will mean close to nothing if they fail to back it up. They host Eintracht Frankfurt who by one way or another failed to beat Freiburg in their latest challenge and without a success in their last six, the guests are probably going to fall to defeat against the buoyant hosts.
The hosts are a lot higher in the table contrasted with the guests. They have some extraordinary outcomes like the success over Leverkusen away from home and the draw to Leipzig.
The facts confirm that the guests have been poor as of late. In any case, even without wins, they have demonstrated their attacking quality at different times. One of those events was in Munich against Bayern where they scored 2 past the present Champions. They have likewise scored past teams like Freiburg and Monchengladbach.
There is no uncertainty that Wolfsburg will score at home. Also, there is a decent possibility for the two teams to get in the score sheet.
Frankfurt’s fightback from 3-1 down to 3-3 against Freiburg deserves credit in any case, generally, they looked horrendous. They have yielded at least four goals in their last three away Bundesliga matches. There’s no reason to think Wolfsburg couldn’t make it the fourth game in progression.
