Eintracht Frankfurt entertain Wolfsburg at the Waldstadion in Bundesliga action on Saturday.

Both clubs are enjoying a great campaign in the domestic league this season and have lost three games so far. The only other team to have lost just three games is Bayern Munich.

The hosts head into the fixture having won two games in a row, including a crucial 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund last week. Wolfsburg have won three in a row, with last week's fixture ending in a narrow 1-0 win against Koln.

Wolfsburg have been victorious in their last four trips to the Waldstadion and will be hoping to record a league double on Saturday as well.

They last met in December in league action at the Volkswagen Arena. Wolfsburg recorded a 2-1 win thanks to Wout Weghorst's second-half brace.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Adi Hütter will be without the services of club captain Martin Hinteregger, who is struggling with a thigh injury. Ragnar Ache, Jabez Makanda and Almamy Toure are long-term absentees.

Amin Younes was replaced in their previous Bundesliga fixture, apparently due to a knock. He faces a late fitness test ahead of the game. Hutter also hinted that Luka Jovic lacks match fitness, so a late fitness test is on the cards for him as well.

Injured: Ragnar Ache, Jabez Makanda, Almamy Toure, Martin Hinteregger

Doubtful: Luka Jovic, Amin Younes

Suspended: None

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg Prediction

Both clubs have been in scintillating form and are working hard to secure a European qualification spot this season. The hosts are the joint second-highest goalscorers in the competition while the visitors have the joint-best defensive record in the league.

The game promises to be an engaging contest and given the form of the two sides, a high-scoring draw looks like the most likely outcome from the game.

Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt 2-2 Wolfsburg.
