Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen

, KO: 16:30 May 5, 2024, Deutsche Bank Park
Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen are still targeting an unbeaten Bundesliga campaign as they travel to Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. Both teams have been plagued by too many draws lately and should serve up another stalemate in this one.

Eintracht Frankfurt are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich last time out in the Bundesliga with Hugo Ekitike getting their only goal. That result is part of a recent poor record as they have picked up just one win from their last six matches.

Things are slightly better at home for Eintracht Frankfurt as they are unbeaten in their last five matches, although three of those fixtures have been draws. Dino Topmoller’s men have also kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches at Deutsche Bank Park.

Bayer Leverkusen are not just targeting an unbeaten Bundesliga campaign but are still in the mix for the treble. Xabi Alonso’s men took a major step towards adding the Europa League to their trophy haul after claiming a 2-0 win at Roma in the semi-final first leg on Thursday.

On the domestic front, Bayer Leverkusen have drawn their last two Bundesliga matches having been forced to come from behind both times. They battled to a 2-2 scoreline in their previous Bundesliga fixture.

How the bookies view it: Leverkusen with the edge

Bayer Leverkusen have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 13/10 by 888Sport to claim the win. A victory for Eintracht Frankfurt is valued at 21/10 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 5/2 by BetVictor.

Recent Head to head: Leverkusen the dominant force

Bayer Leverkusen have dominated this fixture in recent times, winning three of the last four meetings. They secured a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December with Victor Boniface, Jeremie Frimpong and Florian Wirtz getting the goals.

Players to watch: Wirtz always carries attacking threat

Omar Marmoush is the leading scorer for Eintracht Frankfurt with 11 Bundesliga goals and will be the one to watch on Sunday. The forward was on target in the previous home fixture and is priced at 9/4 by bet365 to find the net once again.

Florian Wirtz is often involved in most of Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking play and is their joint-leading scorer with 11 Bundesliga goals. The attacker was on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 10/3 by bet365 to get on the score sheet.

Probable lineups

Eintracht Frankfurt have no new injury worries and are likely to stick with the team that faced Bayern Munich last time out. Boniface sat out Bayer Leverkusen’s Europa League win at Roma and should return to the starting lineup on Sunday.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp, Koch, Tuta, Pacho, Buta, Knauff, Skhiri, Gotze, Ebimbe, Marmoush, Ekitike.
Bayer Leverkusen: Kovar, Tah, Tapsoba, Hincapie, Frimpong, Grimaldo, Xhaka, Andrich, Tella, Wirtz, Boniface

Anything else catch the eye? Attacks to shine again?

Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen each saw over 3.5 goals in their previous Bundesliga fixture and a repeat is priced at 15/8 by BetVictor. Over 2.5 goals could also be considered at 8/11 by bet365.

Both teams have had a few late showings in recent weeks and could be backed to score in the second half at 7/4 with William Hill. There are also likely to be more goals after the break at 10/11 with Coral.
