VfL Wolfsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt – This game can be called a meeting of the biggest disappointments and one of the most positive surprises of the season. Wolfsburg has almost touched bottom and no one could hope that this team so bad play of the season that they expected a return to the European scene. Instead it is very close to the relegation zone in relation to that and do not have a scoring advantage. On the other hand the Eintracht team that was totally unexpected very close to the top of the table and on the fifth place with as many as 16 points more than his rival. Accordingly, the results lately so no Wolfsburg win the last four games, while Eintracht undefeated in the last nine games. In the previous two rounds of the Wolfsburg lost and Eintracht twice drew.

Not team Wolfsburg yet touched bottom, but when you know the ambitions of this club, it is the position just above the relegation zone a recipe for disaster. Simply nothing is going this season in which they do not have any European commitments, but could not manage to fritter away the championship and achieved a series of positive results. Only here and there shine and victory, as was the case in Freiburg when they won with 3: 0th After that, three losses and one draw, which istvarili away at Ingolstadt, while most surprising that “Wolves” at home this season, have not won one.
Only two draws and five defeats have disastrous effects, but they were losing matches that have just had to get, like the one before two rounds against Hertha when they had the lead twice and then ended 3: 2 for the visitors. It is difficult to expect to fix the impression in the last round away to Bayern Munich, although they hoped that at least can avoid disaster. No, they were unsuccessful and ended 5: 0 for the Bavarians, the only prolong the agony of the team that two seasons ago was the second and won the Cup of Germany. There’s coach Ismael has not tried when it comes to composition and no change was fruitless, and now will again rotate the composition and jumps Horn instead violated M.SCHAFER and returns and Seguin.
Probable lineups Wolfsburg: Benaglio – Knoche, Bruma, Horn – Guilavogui – D.Caligiuri, Seguin, Arnold, Gerhardt – Mayoral – Gomez
All bad team at Wolfsburg’s looking good that is happening Eintracht, ekpi which last season barely retained the major league status. This season, as a reborn and really play well, and when they are not in the right rhythm, manage to avoid defeat. In the previous two rounds they drew and this is the first near Augsburg at home with 1: 1, but then in the last round at home against Hoffenheim goalless. We still have no home defeat and that’s great achievement, while the away defeat only twice and both times the minimum.
In early October, they lost the last match at Freiburg, and since then have played nine league games and they were not defeated. After three victories have played mentioned two draws and quite different, because they are away at Augsburg outplayed, while in the last round was absolutely better than Hoffenheim, but failed to score and had to settle for a draw. They have to be sorry, especially because they create a lot of chances, but the visitors’ keeper was insurmountable. At the end of the other and without the off Chandler who now not eligible to play but will change formations and jumps M.Hector.
Probable lineups Eintracht Frankfurt: Hradecky – M.Hector, Abraham Vallejo – Mascarell, Hasebe, Huszti, Oczipka – Fabian, Gacinovic – Meier
