It has not been often in recent times that Eintracht Frankfurt have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Eintracht Frankfurt have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals during that time.

Jesper Lindström (Hamstring Injury), Danny da Costa (Pubis bone irritation), Jan Schröder (Torn Muscle Fibre), Diant Ramaj (Meniscal Injury) and Martin Hinteregger (Hamstring Injury) will not be taking part for Eintracht Frankfurt gaffer Oliver Glasner.
