Wolfsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt
Wolfsburg will face Eintracht Frankfurt at the Volkswagen Arena in a match from the 29th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s preview this fixture because we expect to witness some emotions here.
Wolfsburg made a huge statement on Tuesday when they went to Leverkusen and crushed Bayer with 4-1 at the BayArena. We all thought that Leverkusen are favourites and they will return in Top 4, but the Wolves were not thinking the same way.
After 75 minutes of playing Wolfsburg had a clear 4-0 advantage. The Croatian centre-back Marin Pongracic scored two goals for the visitors, while Max Arnold and Renato Steffen also put the ball in Lucas Hradecky’s net. It was a spectacular performance by Wolfsburg, probably one of the best games they had in the league this season.
With this win Wolfsburg remained 6th in the Bundesliga, but now being 3 points ahead of the 7th Hoffenheim. The Wolves continue to fight for an Europa League qualification and return to Europe. Their manager Oliver Glasner told his team to keep their feet on the ground.
Eintracht Frankfurt are a club in crisis. Last season Eintracht almost reached the final of Europa League, but right now they are 14th in the standings with just 29 points won. Adi Hutter’s team is without a win in its last five Bundesliga games, which is the reason why the team is just two points ahead of the 16th Fortuna Dusseldorf and the relegation playoff spot.
On Tuesday Eintracht Frankfurt won a point after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Freiburg at home. Andre Silva, Daichi Kamada and Timothy Chandler saved Eintracht from another defeat.
That’s what we had to tell you about the Bundesliga game between Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. Can Wolfsburg repeat their impressive performance against Bayer Leverkusen?
