We’ve all waited for more than two months to say it – but elite-level football is finally back in our lives. The German Bundesliga is the first of the top European leagues to get back to the grind, and they’ll be doing so with a full slate of games to enjoy this weekend. The encounter we’ll be taking a look at today will see Eintracht Frankfurt go head to head with Borussia Monchengladbach in what should serve as an interesting indication of how the break has impacted both clubs.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Frankfurt may not be the powerhouse many believed they would be this season, but a large part of that comes down to how many fixtures they’ve had to play. One of the reasons for their inconsistency towards March was due to their involvement in three separate competitions, with all being of real importance to the club. If they’re able to manage their resources correctly and push forward in the right direction, they could have a strong final third of the campaign.

Team News

Durm and Paciencia are the two big doubts for Frankfurt whereas Fernandes and Dost both appear to have recovered from lingering injury problems. Torro is also back to full fitness whereas Trapp is expected to carry on in goal despite Ronnow being back to full fitness.

Borussia Mönchengladbach

For years Monchengladbach have been waiting to break into the upper echelons of German football once again, and now, it finally seems as if that’s starting to come to fruition. They’re in a great spot to try and claim a place in the UEFA Champions League next season, they’ve got an exciting squad, and they’ve got a passionate fanbase – although the lack of fans being able to be in the stadium could hamper them.

Team News

Zakaria is out of action after undergoing knee surgery whereas Johnson is out with a muscle problem. Neuhaus looks set to return following his suspension with Jantschke, Bensebaini and Bennetts all looking for a place in the starting XI.

Factors to Consider

  • This will be the first game in over two months for both clubs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Frankfurt have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
  • Monchengladbach have won three, drawn two and lost one of their last six games.
  • Frankfurt have scored nine goals and conceded 12 in their last six games.
  • Monchengladbach have scored 13 goals and conceded nine in their last six games.

Conclusion

While fixture congestion has been an issue for Frankfurt prior to the lockdown, they shouldn’t have that issue after such a long lay-off. When they play their won game at their own tempo, they’re more than capable of causing a bit of a shock – and that’s exactly what we’re backing them to do here. We think Monchengladbach will take them far too lightly, opening the door for Frankfurt to register a huge three points in their Bundesliga return.
