Eintracht Frankfurt – Schalke 04

Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Schalke 04 at the Deutsche Bank Park in a game from the Bundesliga’s 16th round. Stay with us and our preview for the game.

Eintracht Frankfurt are marching towards a Top 4 finish this season. The Europa League champions are currently 4th in the standings with 27 points. If they manage to keep this position they will qualify for the Champions League again. That’s the main goal at the moment.

Oliver Glasner’s team is still performing at the high level saw from them last season. Eintracht are solid in the Bundesliga and they also reached he Champions League knockout phase. They deserve compliments for keeping these levels for a second consecutive season.

The Japanese international Daichi Kamada is Eintracht’s leading goalscorer this season. He has scored 7 goals since the start of the campaign. Schalke’s defense must be extra careful with Kamada who is doing a fine job this season.

Schalke 04 are having another nightmare of a season in the Bundesliga. The Royal Blues are at the bottom of the standings with just 9 points won so far. It seems that they are nearing another relegation to the 2. Bundesliga – except if they don’t find a way to improve.

Schalke have won just two times since the beginning of the season – which expains their trouble. The head coach Thomas Reis was appointed in September, but so far his work is not providing the desired results. It won’t be surprising if at certain time Schalke try with another change of coaches.

That’s our preview for the Bundesliga clash between Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke 04 on Saturday. Now it’s time for the hosts to move closer to their goals – a Top 4 finish. For Schalke this game is also too important – they will try to escape the relegation zone in the German league.
