Another top-of-the-table clash

The home match against VfL Wolfsburg will be yet another showdown with fellow European hopefuls – and that is exactly the type of situation that the Eagles seem to enjoy.

“A seven-point advantage over fifth place is good for us, but there are seven games to go so it’s still not enough. We need to maintain our focus and keep up the good performances,” said a very grounded André Silva after the 2-1 win away to Borussia Dortmund. The Portuguese forward played a major role in his team’s 13th win of the season last Saturday, registering his 25th goal or assist in as many Bundesliga matches this term.

Eintracht have lost just three league games in 2020/21, one of those coming away to Wolfsburg in the first half of the season. The Eagles managed to put extra daylight between themselves and one of the chasing pack last weekend – this time out, they will be at home to the team that sit one spot above them in the league. The Green-and-Whites are currently enjoying the second-best Bundesliga campaign in their history, with 54 points from 27 matches.

We’ll need to work harder, play as well as we can, carry on picking up points and keeping the dream alive until one day, we wake up and realise that it’s no longer a dream – it’s for real.

Two teams flying high

Eintracht have also got their highest ever points tally for this stage in the season (50), making this Saturday’s clash a real marquee match-up. SGE will have to break down the joint-best defence in the top flight, with VfL shipping a mere 22 goals this season, level with Leipzig. Frankfurt on the other hand have the second-best attack along with Dortmund, finding the back of the net on no fewer than 55 occasions.

The Wolves have picked up 25 points in ten games in the second half of the season, putting them level in that respect with leaders Bayern Munich. The next best team in that particular category are Eintracht, on 23 points. “We’ll need to work harder, play as well as we can, carry on picking up points and keeping the dream alive until one day, we wake up and realise that it’s no longer a dream – it’s for real,” is goalkeeper Kevin Trapp’s assessment of what lies ahead.
