Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Stuttgart preview:
Die Adler looking to extend unbeaten streak

By Ben Sully   @SullyBen

Eintracht Frankfurt will attempt to extend their unbeaten run to nine competitive games when they welcome Stuttgart to Deutsche Bank Park on Saturday.

Eintracht Frankfurt


Dino Toppmoller's side head into Saturday’s contest off the back of an impressive run of form after six and drawing two of their last eight games across all competitions. Their unbeaten run came under threat in their final game before the international break when Werder Bremen moved into a two-goal lead. However, die Adler still managed to leave with a point after Ellyes Skhiri and Hrvoje Smolčić grabbed a goal apiece to ensure the contest finished all square.


Having picked up 18 points from 11 games, Frankfurt go into the weekend in seventh place with just one point separating them from the top six. Although they face a tough test this weekend, they will be confident about their chances of claiming a positive result due to their impressive home form. The hosts have gone 15 home league games without defeat (W8, D7), since losing to Borussia Dortmund in October 2022.

Defender Robin Koch and midfielder Sebastian Rode are both expected to miss out due to calf injuries.

Stuttgart


Stuttgart entered the international break in a positive mood after they bounced back from consecutive defeats to beat Borussia Dortmund in their most recent outing. After falling behind in the 36th minute, die Schwaben pulled themselves level through Deniz Undav, before Serhou Guirassy came off the bench to score the winning spot-kick.

From a team that were involved in the relegation play-offs last season, Stuttgart are now sitting in third place with 24 points to their name. As a result, they enjoy a three-point cushion over Borussia Dortmund, who currently occupy fifth spot.

Although their current position will inspire confidence, Stuttgart’s recent head-to-head record makes for grim reading. Since winning 1-0 in February 2018, they have gone nine competitive meetings with picking up a victory (D4, L5). However, they have at least proven to be a tough team to beat in recent trips to Deutsche Bank Park, having played out 1-1 draws in each of their last three competitive away games against die Adler.
