Eintracht Frankfurt hosts RB Leipzig
In one of the most intriguing fixtures from the 1/8-finas of the DFB Pokal, Eintracht Frankfurt hosts RB Leipzig at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt. In our football tips tonight we will try to prepare you for this game on Tuesday.
In order to reach the 1/8-finals of the DFB Pokal, Eintracht Frankfurt had to travel to Hamburg and face St. Pauli at their Millerntor-Stadion. Eintracht’s manager Adi Hutter put the Dutch striker Bas Dost in the starting line-up and the former Sporting CP star didn’t dissapoint him. Dos scored twice until the 16th minute, which allowed the visitors to secure qualification for the next round.
Eintracht Frankfurt will host RB Leipzig after a shaky performance in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Eintracht paid a visit to Fortuna Dusseldorf and they were seconds away from losing, but Timothy Chandler scored an equalising goal in the 93th minute after an assist from Andre Silva. This was probably not the performance Adi Hutter wanted to see from his players.
RB Leipzig qualified for the DFB Pokal 1/8-finals in the most impressive way possible. Julian Nagelsmann’s boys visited Wolfsburg and shocked the hosts with a domination and a 6-1 win at the Volkswagen Arena. The manager chose to put a strong line-up on the pitch and it showed. Timo Werner added two more goals to his tally, while Sabitzer, Forsberg and Laimer also scored for the visitors.
RB Leipzig’s manager Julian Nagelsmann has some problems with injured players before the next game. Willi Orban, Ibrahima Konate and Kevin Kampl are also sidelined with injuries and unavaliable for the next fixture.
In these football tips tonight we regard RB Leipzig a slight favourite against Eintracht Frankfurt, but they are not having the home advantage here, so be careful with your predictions.
