In search of their first Bundesliga win of the season, Eintracht Frankfurt welcome FC Cologne to the Commerzbank Arena on Saturday.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last three Bundesliga outings and will be looking to maintain this solid run of results.

Eintracht Frankfurt failed to pick up their first win of the season last time out when they played out a 1-1 draw away to Wolfsburg.

Sam Lammaers gave Die Adler the lead in the 38th minute but Wout Weghorst leveled the scores with 20 minutes left on the clock.

It was the fifth draw on the bounce across all competitions for Oliver Glasner’s men, who are yet to taste victory this season and have suffered an early exit from the DFB Pokal.

With four points from five games, Frankfurt are currently 15th in the Bundesliga table, but could rise as high as seventh with a win.

Meanwhile, FC Cologne put in a solid defensive performance last time out when they held Leipzig to a 1-1 draw last time out.

Following a drab first half, Anthony Modeste and Amadou Haidara scored for either side in the second half to force a share of the spoils.

Steffen Baumgart’s men are now unbeaten in their last three outings, picking up two draws and one win.

Cologne have enjoyed a solid start to the season, picking up two wins and two draws from their opening five games and are currently seventh on the log.
