Eintracht Frankfurt meet Borussia Mönchengladbach and extras Adi Hütter in the last Bundesliga home game of the current season on Sunday (15.30). Both teams are in no-man’s land in the table, with the Hessians it’s all about the historic opportunity in the Europa League.

the starting situation

Of course, the Eintracht duel against Gladbach is theoretically about something. Each seat higher means more money in the TV money table. In addition, the second Bundesliga home win in 2022 would be desirable. And a defeat against extraterrestrials Hütter? These are factors that should not be underestimated. But soberly speaking, the meeting between the two traditional teams is a battle for “the golden pineapple”.

Gladbach simply missed the target and can not save the season even in the final sprint. Eintracht, on the other hand, are still facing one of the biggest matches in the club’s history, the Europa League final in Sevilla against Glasgow Rangers. The perfect access to the final against West Ham United outshines everything in the Main metropolis, the preparations for the big day are already in full swing. The moderate performance in the Bundesliga can also be managed. In any case, the focus is on May 18th.

The staff

In a word: puha. Eintracht is feeling the effects of Thursday enormously. Martin Hinteregger is out for the rest of the season after suffering a thigh injury and a couple of players need to rest. Djibril Sow, Jens Petter Hauge and Jesper Lindstrøm, who are all injured, will be relatively safe. Aymen Barkok, Danny da Costa and Stefan Ilsanker, who are playing their last home game for Eintracht, will definitely be used.

Despite all the health improvements, Marcus Thuram is not yet an option for the squad at Borussia Mönchengladbach. In addition, Christoph Kramer, Nico Elvedi and Manu Koné are out.

Eintracht could play like this:

How Gladbach could play: Sommer – Beyer, Friedrich, Bensebaini – Lainer, Hofmann, Neuhaus, Netz – Stindl, Plea – Embolo

That’s what the coaches say

Oliver Glasner: “I know that the match on Thursday and the following evening left its mark. But we will finally win at home. Of course we know that the warnings are not ideal. But I expect the boys to fire everything out. Gladbach’s performance has been better shown in the last few weeks. This is a very strong team in terms of quality. “

Adi Hütter: “There will definitely be one or the other. I have to be prepared for that. Exit could have been solved better. I came up with a few statements that I regret. My nerves were definitely a little itchy at the time. I had a lot there, a lot. “It’s not about Adi Hütter’s return, it’s about Borussia Mönchengladbach playing against Eintracht Frankfurt.”

You have to take care of these players

There may also be a few tears on Sunday. With Barkok and da Costa, two cup winners leave the club in the direction of Mainz 05. Their expiring contracts were extended as little as Stefan Ilsankers. Where the Austrian is going is not yet clear. Glasner provided a commitment guarantee, but the number of minutes remains open. Emotions are still firmly planned.

How will the fans receive Hütter? Board rapporteur Axel Hellmann recently made peace with the extras for Eintracht, who accepted the invitation and made it to the semi-finals. Supporters, of course, have not forgiven Hütter for saying goodbye a year ago. But maybe the saying “time heals all wounds” counts here too!

The statistics for the game

“Wild West Football” in Frankfurt? In the last five meetings, there has often been a rattle in the gates. 2: 4, 1: 3, 3: 3, 0: 4, 3: 2 were the results from Eintracht’s point of view. Five hits on average indicate a play. And with Glasner and Hütter, there are two coaches on the sidelines who are pursuing a brave and offensive game idea.
