The Red Bulls will look to tidy their record against The Eagles.

The Matchday 22 of the Bundesliga is bound to bring high-profile action to the mix as the fifth-placed RB Leipzig lock horns against Eintracht Frankfurt who are currently placed 6th on the points table. Both sides will be looking for a win in the fixture to secure their chances of finishing in the top four in the competition.

Leipzig managed to hold Manchester City to a draw at home thanks to Josko Gvardiol's brilliant goal as the two sides ended with 1 goal each at full time. Frankfurt on the other hand had a rough outing as the side had to face a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Napoli in their Champions League draw with Kolo Muani being sent off in the 58th minute due to a rash collision with Anguissa.

Kick-off:

Saturday, 25-02-2023; 2:30 pm (GMT), 08:00 pm (IST)

RB Leipzig form (all competition): D-W-L-D-W

Eintracht Frankfurt form (all competition): L-W-L-W-W

Players to Watch

RB Leipzig: Christopher Nkunku

Leipzig will be very happy with the return of Christopher Nkunku who will be available for the side in their clash against Frankfurt. The Frenchman is still placed 2nd on the Bundesliga top scorers this season despite missing a major chunk due to a torn ligament. The player has been lethal in front of the goal this season and his presence will surely help Leipzig elevate their attack. While the player did not make a start in the bout against City, he could feature for the side's playing depending on his fitness.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Randal Kolo Muani

The French striker has been a breath of fresh air for Frankfurt this season, Molo Muani has already made 20 goal contributions in the Bundesliga this season with 10 goals and assists. His link-up play with Mario Gotze has also been impressive to watch and Oliver Glasner will hope that the red card from the Napoli game does not affect his striker’s mindset.

  • RB Leipzig have not won any of their last six league matches against Eintracht Frankfurt
  • A total of 14 goals have been scored in the six encounters between the two sides with an average of 2.33 goals scored per game.
