The Bundesliga continues next week and will see Bayer Leverkusen host Eintracht Frankfurt at the BayArena on Monday night.

Bayer Leverkusen returned to winning ways last weekend, picking up a 4-1 win over Greuther Furth to further strengthen their hold on a Champions League spot and confirm relegation for their opponents.

Bayer Leverkusen remain third in the Bundesliga table with 55 points from 31 games. They will be looking to pick up back-to-back wins on Monday as they target a spot among Europe's finest next season.

Eintracht Frankfurt's domestic struggles continued last weekend as they played out a 2-2 draw against Europe-chasing Hoffenheim. However, they returned to winning ways in midweek, beating West Ham 2-1 in the first leg of the semifinals of the UEFA Europa League.

The visitors sit ninth in the league standings with 40 points from 31 games. They can no longer qualify for Europe via a league finish but will be looking to end the season as strongly as they can.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen ended a run of back-to-back winless outings with a comfortable win last time out. However, they have lost three of their last four home games across all competitions and will be looking to improve their home form starting on Monday.

Eintracht Frankfurt are winless in their last five league games, drawing three times and losing the other two. The hosts should therefore have enough to win this one.

Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
