Eagles do a lot

At this stage of the season, Eitracht is doing great, the club is fourth in the Bundesliga, but only surpasses Union Berlin by additional metrics. In the last round there was a draw with Mainz – 1:1. Everything is good in the Champions League too, the Frankfurters from their group advanced to the play-offs, but they got there with the powerful Napoli. At half-time, the club had seven control matches, with only wins and draws against European rivals, but the team lost to two Japanese opponents. Injuries will prevent two players from entering the pitch.

It will not be easy for Cobalt to stay in the elite

After 15 rounds, Schalke is the closest to relegation, as the club is last in the table, 5 points behind the defense line, the same to the mid-game zone. In the last round “Kobalt” lost at home to Bayern 0: 2, this defeat was the tenth of 15 meetings. The team played six games until the break without winning a single game, three draws and three defeats. Staff problems remain, nine players will not help the team due to injuries.

Personal meetings
