VfL Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt begins 22.04.2019 at 20:30 CET
Wolfsburg plays variably and victories come after defeats. They played in that rhythm in last five rounds; they won two times and lost three. Both victories were won at home against objectively weaker rivals, while they lost three away matches with strong opponents. It wasn’t surprising as they faced Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig, first three positioned teams in the table.
Wolfsburg scored no goals in those three away matches and had received 10, out of which six in Munich. In the previous round they lost in Leipzig by 2-0, and we can say they were totally outplayed, while they received goals in first half an hour Tisserand played on the right flank, while Arnold returned to the midfield. Now, Williams returns to defence, while Gerhardt will replace Rexhbecaj in the midfield. Goalkeeper Casteels is still injured and that is a big handicap.
Probable lineups VfL Wolfsburg: Pervan – William, Knoche, Brooks, Roussillon – Guilavogui – Gerhardt, Arnold – Steffen, Mehmedi – Weghorst
Eintracht returned on winning path and it did in the Europa League where it made a sort of sensation when it annulled backlog of two goals against Benfica. They lost the 1st leg by 4-2 played in Lisbon, where they had a player less on the pitch for a bigger part of match. Eintracht decided to risk in the first math and didn’t withdraw in situation when they were outnumbered. They scored two goals but they easily received goals due to risky tactic, however, the 2nd leg was a different match. They patiently waited for their chance and scored two goals without receiving a single one, so they are going to play in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
After Lisbon they lost league match with Augsburg 3-1 at home, and again they had just 10 players on the pitch, which was the main cause of defeat. Now, midfielder G. Fernandes cannot play due to red card and that is great handicap for Eintracht, while another problem could be fatigue. Points from this match are very important for the race for the Champions League and manager Hutter cannot change too many players but in any case Torro will replace G. Fernandes, while Hinteregger returns to defence. Besides the two of them there might be more changes later on.
Probable lineups Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp – Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger – Torro, Rode – da Costa, Kostic – Gacinovic – Jovic, Paciencia
VfL Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt PICK
