Last season will be remembered as one of the best in Eintracht Frankfurt history. Beyond all expectations, this team went all the way in the Europa League and eventually lifted the trophy. They defeated Rangers in the final game and that secured them a ticket to the Champions League.
One of the best players (Filip Kostic) went to Juventus, but Frankfurt signed a lot of new players. Some of them are Jens Petter Hauge, Lucas Alario, Mario Gotze, Randal Kolo Muani and Kristijan Jakic. It will be very difficult for this team to finish in top 4 in the Bundesliga, especially if it is known that they won only one point in first two rounds. 6:1 defeat against Bayern showed the difference between them and the best German club.
Game against Koln this weekend will be the best chance so far for Frankfurt to get their first win of the season. The opponent is not naive at all, but it will be quite tired after a tough game in the Conference League on Thursday night. Frankfurt will certainly try to take advantage of that.
After few very difficult seasons, Koln played excellent in their last campaign. They finished seventh in the Bundesliga which secured them a place in the Conference League qualifying where they didn’t start well. Two days ago, Koln was defeated by Fehervar (2:1) at home and they will need a big comeback in second leg to advance to the group stage.
Before second leg in Hungary, Koln expects a tough challenge in the Bundesliga. They will be visiting Frankfurt and surely this match comes at a not very good time for them. They only had two days to prepare for this opponent and their thoughts will certainly be on Europe. In the first two rounds, Koln played more than solid in the Bundesliga. They collect four points in two matches against Schalke and Leipzig and thus hinted another good season in the domestic league.
A draw in Frankfurt against Eintracht would be a suitable result for Koln at this moment. As already mentioned, their primary aim will be to do a good job in Europe next Thursday.
These two teams played two games against each other last season. Koln won 1:0 at home, while the score in Frankfurt was 1:1.
Aurelio Buta is injured and won’t play for Eintracht Frankfurt, while Almamy Toure and Jerome Onguene are questionable. At Koln, Dimitrios Limnios is injured but there is a possibility for him to be in the lineup this Sunday.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Koln Prediction
All the circumstances are in Frankfurt favor at the moment. They are playing on their home pitch, they are better team and have more energy since Koln spent a lot of power against Fehervar on Thursday. All this should lead to home team winning this clash.
