Eintracht Frankfurt must get some points on the board soon to avoid getting caught up in the relegation dogfight, says Lothar Matthäus.

Lothar Matthäus believes Eintracht Frankfurt are involved in the relegation scrap following their 1-3 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday.

With a game in hand, 'Die Adler' sit 13th, five points above the relegation zone, and Matthäus stresses that they need to get some points on the board as soon as possible to move away from the drop zone.

"Eintracht will now have to look down the table. They probably didn't expect this," Matthäus told Sky and added:

"They have to make sure that they move away from the bottom. Eintracht are currently in the fight to avoid the relegation places."

While Frankfurt boss Fredi Bobic insists that they are "not quite in the mess yet", head coach Adi Hütter says he's "aware of the situation," which he describes as "very unpleasant".

In their next game, Frankfurt face Bayern München away from home on Saturday.
