Frankfurt Form & Balance Check
Eintracht Frankfurt enjoyed triumphant success in the Europa League last season and also reached the last 16 of the Champions League this year. In addition, the Hessians recently qualified for the DFB Cup final by beating VfB Stuttgart.
In the Bundesliga, however, the season has been anything but ideal for the SGE. In the last twelve league games, Frankfurt recorded only one victory. So far, the Hessians have only won against Hertha, Bremen and Mainz in the second half of the season. The 2-2 draw against FC Schalke 04 the previous week means that the Eagles are now in eighth place ahead of the final matchday. However, VfL Wolfsburg in seventh place are only two points away.
Kamada says goodbye
It has already been clear for a few weeks that Daichi Kamada will not extend his expiring contract at Eintracht. Just in time for the end of the season, the Japanese seems to have finally overcome his crisis of form. Against Schalke, he scored the interim 1:1, which means that the 26-year-old has now scored three goals in the last two games.
Before that, however, the attacking player waited a long time for something tangible. Kamada went 13 games without scoring a goal. The last goal scored by Frankfurt’s number 15 was in October 2022 against Dortmund. With nine goals and six assists, the Japanese player is nevertheless playing a very solid season.
Frankfurt facts & analysis
- Nine home games in a row without defeat.
- Eighth in the league
- In the final of the DFB Cup
Freiburg form & balance check
After beating Wolfsburg 2-0 the previous week, SC Freiburg are on 59 points this Bundesliga season. The Breisgauer thus scored the highest number of points so far this season since the introduction of the three-point rule in 1995, making SCF’s season already historic.
Coach Christian Streich and his team can even make themselves immortal on the Dreisam on the last matchday. Before the last matchday, SCF is in fifth place in the league. This means that Freiburg already has the Europa League safely in the bag. But with their own success in Hesse, the Breisgauers still have a chance of reaching the top flight. Union Berlin, in fourth place, are currently only above the SCF on the basis of a better goal difference.
The fact that this goal difference is so weak is due to the occasional total failure of Freiburg’s defence. For the most part, the SCF defence is very solid. After all, with the convincing 2-0 win against Wolfsburg last week, SC Freiburg have already played an impressive 13 games without conceding a goal this Bundesliga season, a feat that has not been achieved more often by any other team.
This has even set the club record. Goalkeeper Mark Flekken has been in goal for the Breisgau side in all of these 13 games. However, the three extremely high defeats against Bayern, Wolfsburg and Dortmund (5:0, 6:0 and 5:1) destroyed the Breisgauer’s otherwise so good goal ratio.
Freiburg facts & analysis
- Fifth in the Bundesliga table
- Equal on points with Union in fourth place
- First two away defeats in the second leg
Predicted line-up – last update on 25 May 2023
The Eintracht will again go into the game in their well-rehearsed 3-4-2-1. Kolo Muani will possibly play for the last time in front of the home Frankfurt crowd. For Daichi Kamada, Saturday will definitely be the last home game in the Eintracht kit.
Freiburg recently played very successfully against VfL Wolfsburg in a 3-4-3, and we expect the Breisgauer to play in this formation at the weekend as well. Nils Petersen will come off the bench again. Nicolas Höfler, however, will be missing after his red card the previous week.
