RB Leipzig are back in action with another important Bundesliga fixture this weekend as they take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and will be determined to win this game.
Eintracht Frankfurt are currently in 11th place in the Bundesliga standings and have failed to meet expectations so far this season. The hosts edged Werder Bremen to a crucial 4-3 victory in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
RB Leipzig, on the other hand, are in ninth place in the league table at the moment and have also been inconsistent this season. The away side thrashed Teutonia Ottsensen by an 8-0 scoreline this week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.
