Wolfsburg vs Frankfurt
Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg
Saturday, 30-05-2020 @4:30pm
Europe chasing Wolfsburg will be out for all three points when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday afternoon.
The Wolves are coming off a huge victory away to Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday and will be hoping to register their third victory since the league resumed a couple of weeks ago.
Sitting just three points clear in the final Europa League place, the hosts know their is no room for error as the Bundesliga starts to wind down.
Frankfurt on the other hand have seen their season deteriorate with each passing match day.
They are without victory since the league resumed taking their overall tally (winless) to five fixtures.
Currently, they sit just two points above the relegation playoff spot. However, they drew 3-3 against Freiburg last time out and they will be praying that momentum pushes them to what looks like an unlikely victory of Saturday afternoon.
Wolfsburg’s injury list is fairly substantial at the moment with the likes of Paulo Otavio, William, Ignacio Camacho, Joshua Guilavogui, Mamoudou Karamoko and Yannick Gerhardt all on the sidelines. Felix Klaus is still suspended, meanwhile, meaning that the Wolves will once again be without a number of first-team players for this weekend’s contest. Glasner’s team did not pick up any fresh concerns against Leverkusen, though, and it would not be a surprise to see the same starting XI sent onto the field due to their impressive performance.
As for Frankfurt, David Abraham, Goncalo Paciencia and Marco Russ are all still injured, but Hutter otherwise has a fully-fit squad heading into the contest. Timothy Chandler scored off the bench against Freiburg on Tuesday and is in contention to start, while Jonathan de Guzman could also earn a spot in the middle of the park. There are unlikely to be changes in the final third, though, with Bas Dost again expected to join Andre Silva.
The early season meeting between the two sides saw Wolfsburg beat Frankfurt 2-0 despite finishing the game a man less.
