Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Cologne prediction, preview, team news and more
In search of their first Bundesliga win of the season, Eintracht Frankfurt welcomes FC Cologne to the Commerzbank Arena on Saturday.
The visitors are unbeaten in their last three Bundesliga outings and will look to maintain this solid streak.
Eintracht Frankfurt failed to secure their first win of the season last time around in a 1-1 draw at Wolfsburg.
Sam Lammaers donated Die Adler lead in the 38th minute, but Wout Weghorst equalized the score 20 minutes from time.
It was the fifth draw in all competitions for Oliver Glasner’s men, who have yet to taste victory this season and suffered an untimely exit from DFB Pokal.
With four points in five games, Frankfurt is currently 15th in the Bundesliga table, but could reach seventh place with a win.
Meanwhile, FC Cologne had a strong defensive performance last time around when they held Leipzig to a 1-1 draw last time.
After a lackluster first half, Anthony Modeste and Amadou Haidara scored for each team in the second half to force a share of the booty.
Steffen Baumgart’s men are now unbeaten in their last three outings, with two draws and one victory.
Cologne have had a strong start to the season, taking two wins and two draws in their first five games and are currently seventh in the standings.
Head to head Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Cologne
