Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Match Preview

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Deutsche Bank Park (Frankfurt).


There has never been a goalless draw between these two sides in their 70 previous Bundesliga meetings, and there is little chance of that statistic changing on Saturday.

Eintracht Frankfurt, who finally ended a nine-match winless run with victory at Augsburg last time out, have failed to find the net on just one occasion so far this term - and that was away to Bayern Munich - while high-flying Bayer Leverkusen have scored two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 games in all competitions. Goals are therefore virtually guaranteed in this contest.

Team News:

Frankfurt are likely to remain without Felix Irorere and former Newcastle United full-back Jetro Willems through a lack of match fitness.

Central defender Ragnar Ache is ruled out with a hamstring injury, with Hutter perhaps tempted to recall Bas Dost to the starting XI, having only used the target man from the bench at Augsburg.

Leverkusen's long-term injury list remains lengthy, making their achievements so far this season all the more remarkable, with Santiago Arias, Sven Bender, Charles Aranguiz, Paulinho, Exequiel Palacios and Lars Bender all ruled out of the trip to Frankfurt.

Daley Sinkgraven and Wendell are unlikely to feature due to coronavirus, leaving Bosz with a headache at left-back. Right-back Tin Jedvaj may be asked to do a job there for the time being.

Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Trapp; Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Durm, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Barkok, Silva

Bayer Leverkusen possible starting lineup:
Hradecky; Dragovic, Tah, Tapsoba, Jedvaj; Wirtz, Baumgartlinger, Amiri; Bailey, Schick, Diaby
