Bayer Leverkusen vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview
Eintracht Frankfurt’s best chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League now looks to be via their domestic table – and a draw would suit them fine at Bayer Leverkusen.
The Eagles still have two ways available of getting into the continent’s elite club competition for 2019-20 but one of those, winning the Europa League, now looks much more difficult after they drew 1-1 at home to Chelsea in the first leg of their semi-final.
Therefore, a Bundesliga top-four finishing position appears the best option for Frankfurt, who entered the weekend fourth in the table with three points to spare over Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, their hosts on Sunday. Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg are also on the fringe of contention.
If they could avoid defeat at the BayArena it would be a big boost for Adi Hutter’s side, especially with Leverkusen having the easiest final pair of fixtures among the three main candidates for fourth place.
The worry for Frankfurt is how much they seemed to tire in the second half against Chelsea on Thursday, although they were still creating chances towards the end and emerging talent Luka Jovic impressed again both on the ball and with the way he took his headed goal.
Leverkusen have won their last three games, but they were all against teams in the bottom five of the table – and this represents a much more difficult test.
