Inconsistent Eintracht Frankfurt will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways against a struggling Wolfsburg team.

Frankfurt have been seriously underperforming this season and their recent form shows they are really struggling.

They have only one win in their last 6 matches, where they have lost 3 and drawn 2.

They are currently placed 11th in the league table with 41 points from 31 league games, 8 points clear of relegation trouble.

Their home form is questionable, despite winning their last home game, they have just one win from their last 5 home games, drawing 3 and losing one.

Wolfsburg are on the verge of dropping into the second division, and if they fail to win this game, that might happen sooner than expected.

They are currently 15th in the league table with just 33 points from 31 games, the same points as 16th placed Hamburg who are in the relegation playoff zone.

They are however just 2 points behind 12th position and a win in this game could catapult them to 13th.

Their recent away form has not been good – they lost their last 2 away games, and got just 1 point from their last 3 away matches.
