Eintracht Frankfurt will face Freiburg on Sunday - Bundesliga

Bundesliga action resumes this weekend and will see Freiburg host Eintracht Frankfurt at the Europa-Park Stadion on Sunday.

Freiburg have been perhaps the surprise team in the Bundesliga this season. They were beaten 2-1 by defending champions Bayern Munich in their last game. The loss to Bayern Munich was Freiburg's first defeat this season across all competitions.

Breisgau-Brasilianer sit third in the league table with 22 points from 11 games. They will be looking to shake off their setback against Bayern Munich and return to winning ways at the weekend.

Eintracht Frankfurt have been rather inconsistent so far this campaign. They beat newly-promoted Greuther Furth 2-1 in their last game thanks to a last-minute winner from Rafael Santos Borre. The victory was just Frankfurt's second league win of the season.

Die Adler sit 14th in the Bundesliga with 12 points from 11 games. They are just three points above the drop zone and will be looking to begin picking up results.

Freiburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction

Freiburg were the only unbeaten team in the German top-flight until their loss to Bayern Munich last time out. They will be looking to bounce back from that and continue their impressive start to the season.

Eintracht Frankfurt won for the first time in four games when they beat Greuther Furth 2-1 in a rather lackluster game last time out. The hosts should pick up points on Sunday.
