Eintracht Frankfurt vs Leipzig – Bundesliga: With RB Leipzig making a great European campaign on their first year on those surroundings.
This match ends up being between two teams surprisingly active in the top spots of the Bundesliga. Having finished in 3rd place of their group in the Champions League wasn’t a bad result for a debuting team,
with a lot of youth, even if they were representing the Bundesliga on a group where only a Turkish and Portuguese team advanced.
The Europa League’s draw wasn’t promising, with a visit to Napoli in the first leg already, but a 3-goals win left the team from Leipzig in the lead to advance onto the next round.
In Frankfurt, they will find one of the big surprises of the season. Eintracht surprises everything and everyone by getting on the fight for the Champions League spots and they are only 2 points behind their rivals of this Monday.
After the winter break, a draw against Freiburg and a loss at Augsburg are the only negative results, with victories against Wolfsburg, Borussia Monchengladbach and Koln confirming their status, besides also continuing in the DFB Pokal.
RB Leipzig have also dropped points against Freiburg, with a loss, besides a draw at home with Hamburger, on the only matches where they failed to win in the Bundesliga at this restart of the season.
No longer being on the DFB Pokal, they have the Europa League as competition where, looking ahead, they can fight for the title.
Defeating Schalke 04, Borussia Monchengladbach and Augsburg, RB Leipzig might be able to take another step towards maintaining their 2nd place.
But it is also certain that, between matches against Napoli, they might worry a little bit about resting players.
