Preview: Wolfsburg vs. Eintracht Frankfurt - Exciting Clash in Bundesliga Action

By defeating Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday, Wolfsburg hopes to close the gap on them in the Bundesliga standings, which is now two points.

The visitors' ambitions of making it into the Champions League were severely damaged last weekend when they lost to RB Leipzig 2-1.

Match preview

  • Last time out, Wolfsburg defeated FC Koln 2-0 on the road to snap a five-match losing streak in all competitions. Goals from Yannick Gerhardt and Maximilian Arnold came either side of the break.
  • For extended stretches of the game, Niko Kovac's team was content to monopolise territory and possession from the home team. Koln finished with 58% of the possession, 13 shots, and 10 corners, compared to Wolfsburg's 42%, 6 shots, and 2 corners.
  • But the most crucial aspect of football is scoring goals, and the Wolves have been strong at doing just that ever since they completely assimilated into Kovac's coaching staff. 
  • They have actually scored two goals or more in eleven of their past fifteen league games, and their victory at Koln suggests that their recent blanks against RB Leipzig and Schalke 04 were only a temporary hiccup.
  • The former Frankfurt manager will be eager to defeat his old team at the Volkswagen Arena on Sunday, especially because doing so would keep them in the running for a Europa League qualifying berth.
  • Frankfurt, on the other hand, continued their inconsistent play from the previous few weeks when they lost their most recent match, 2-1, on the road against Leipzig, a Champions League qualifying competitor, at the Red Bull Arena.
  • Die Roten Bullen had a 2-0 advantage to defend after the half thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Emil Forsberg; Djibril Sow pulled one back after the hour. Die Adler fell four points behind their opponents in fourth place, nevertheless, as they were unable to produce the vital equaliser.
  • After losing 2-0 at home to Napoli in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match, Frankfurt faces the risk of having their season destroyed if their patchy play continues in the upcoming weeks.
  • Since they haven't won any of their previous five away games, their league record as of late is win, loss, win, loss. Oliver Glasner will be more motivated to halt that specific streak and keep the Wolves well below them in the standings on Sunday because he will also be playing his old team, Wolfsburg.

Team News

  • Due to sickness, Lukas Nmecha was unable to go to Cologne last weekend, thus Wolfsburg is unlikely to take a chance on him. Regardless, the Germany international hasn't started a game since bouncing back from a devastating knee injury.
  • Though Sebastian Bornauw was suspended the previous time out and Jonas Wind was only used as a substitute despite having been playing well lately, Kovac could try to add both players back to his starting lineup.
  • Frankfurt, on the other hand, will go without the banned Sow after Leipzig gave the midfield player his fifth warning of the year. Due to a severe ankle injury, Eric Dina Ebimbe is still out of commission.
  • The 48-year-old's visiting team is expected to have at least a few changes from the team that lost last weekend, including the return of Aurelio Buta, Mario Gotze, and Evan Ndicka.
  • A hypothetical starting lineup for Wolfsburg would be as follows: Castells; Fischer, Bornauw, Van de Ven, Otavio; Svanberg, Arnold, Gerhardt; Baku, Wind, Wimmer
  • Possible starting lineup for Eintracht Frankfurt: Lindstrom, Gotze; Kolo Muani; Trapp; Tuta, Hasebe, Ndicka; Buta, Kamada, Rode, Max
