Eintracht Frankfurt have lost each of their last 4 matches in all competitions. They include a 4-0 loss at Bayer Leverkusen and 3-1 defeat at home by Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga plus a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Basel in the Europa League.

They have lost by 3 or more goals in 3 of their last 5 matches in all competitions and have seen over 2.5 goals in each of their last 6 Bundesliga games. Eintracht Frankfurt have doubts over the fitness of Gonçalo Paciência and David Abraham. Dominik Kohr returns from suspension and should go straight back into the team while midfielder Lucas Torro has recovered from a knee injury.
SC Freiburg have been enjoying a good season and come into this round of matches just 2 points adrift of the Europa League qualifying places. They resumed the Bundesliga with an excellent 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig. It looked as though they could have gone on to win the game but conceded an equaliser with 13 minutes remaining on the clock. Despite that positive result, SC Freiburg went on to lose their match on the weekend at home against Werder Bremen 1-0. Considering the position of their opponents, who are currently in the relegation zone, it was a match SC Freiburg were expected to win and they will want to bounce back quickly.
However, trends show their away form is not particularly good and SC Freiburg have achieved just 5 wins in their last 31 away matches in all competitions. They have failed to win any of their last 4 away Bundesliga games and have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 3 away league matches. SC Freiburg will be without the injured duo of Lukas Kübler and Mark Flekken. They also have doubts over Florian Kath, Yoric Ravet and Gian-Luca Waldschmidt. However, Christian Günter should be fit to start the game.
Recent performances by Eintracht Frankfurt suggest this could be a difficult night. SC Freiburg proved in their away draw at RB Leipzig they are no pushovers and the visitors could come away with maximum points in a game which sees under 2.5 goals.
