Bottom-side Greuther Furth host struggling Eintracht Frankfurt at Deutsche Bank Park in the Bundesliga on Sunday, looking for their first win of the 2021-22 campaign.

With a draw and nine defeats from 10 games so far, the Cloverleaves are last in the league standings with just one point.

Arminia Bielefeld are the only other German side who are yet to register a victory.

In what is only their second-ever top-flight campaign, and the first since the 2012-13 season, Stefan Leitl's side have been in complete shambles.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, have gone off the boil this season too, hovering just above the relegation zone courtesy of goal difference.

They've won only once so far this season, which surprisingly came away to reigning champions Bayern Munich last month. But it's fast proving to be a false dawn.

Greuther Furth vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head-To-Head

Frankfurt have a good record against Furth, winning seven of their last 12 clashes in all competitions and losing only twice.

Their last encounter, coming in March 2013, saw the Eagles eke out a narrow 3-2 victory in Furth.

The Cloverleaves have quite a few injuries to deal with, including key defender Nick Viergever, who suffered a bruised ankle during last weekend's defeat to Freiburg.

Gideon Jung and Hoffenheim loanee Justin Hoogma are both out with knee problems.

Luckily for coach Stefan Leitl, goalscorers Branimir Hrgota, Jamie Leweling and Cedric Itten are all fit and firing. He will be banking on them to produce the goods on Sunday.

Greuther Furth vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction

The promoted side have found life difficult on their return to the Bundesliga and have simply been the worst side in the division.

Their attack has been weak, the defense utterly fragile, and the squad completely lacking in direction.

This might be a chance for the beleaguered Frankfurt side to put some daylight between them and the relegation zone.

Prediction: Greuther Furth 0-2 Eintracht Frankfurt
