The hosts reached their first European final in 42 years as they defeated West Ham United in their Europa League semi-final on Friday. Despite good form in continental competitions, they are without a win in their last seven league outings. In their previous league outing, they fell to a 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen.
Monchengladbach returned to winning ways with a 3-1 win against RB Leipzig last time around. With just two games to go, both sides will be aiming to finish in the upper half of the table.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Having sealed their place in the Europa League final, the hosts can now divert their attention to the remaining two games in the Bundesliga. They might not be able to field their best starting XI next time, in favor of retaining their top players for the Europa League final. With that in mind, we expect a strong team for this encounter.
The visiting side have nothing much to play for in the last two games of the season and might choose to experiment with their squad. We expect the game to end in a draw.
