However it was generally a passive game with very little things done in attack, so this final result comes as actually fair one, even though needs to be said that if one of the teams was closer to get the victory, that would surely be a visiting side. The side improved gradually over the preparation period, starting slowly but winning over Betis and FSV Frankfurt and surely will be trying to get the European ticket somehow this season.
They will be playing in 3-5-2 formation with Boateng and Haller most likely as strikers. Defensive midfielder Slobodan Medojevic and defender Carlos Salcedo are doubtful for this one, while injured remain four: forwards Alexander Meier and Danny Blum, offensive midfielder Marco Fabian and defensive midfielder Omar Mascarell without playing so far.
Bundesliga – Eintracht Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg
That result made them play even more relaxed, as they sealed the victory with a goal from Aubemayang in 60th minute, while the players of Wolfsburg were really passive duringt the whole game and didn’t have much of the ball possession, not even once the visitors had a three goal lead and could relax and lower down the tempo on the field, while they didn’t look like a well prepared team either, but with low energy towards the end.
Visitors are set to play in 4-2-3-1 formation with Gomez as central striker, plus Blaszczykowski, Didavi and Hinds as offensive midfielders. Visitors won’t be able to count at injured right backs Christian Trasch, Vieirinha, central defender John Brooks, while right back Sebastian Jung and central defender Jeffrey Bruma remain unfit for this match. Doubtful are central back Robin Knoche (1/0), right back Paul Verhaegh (1/0) and forward Kaylen Hinds (1/0). Newly signed Marcel Tisserand could partner Felix Uduokhai as central back.
- Eintracht Frankfurt have failed to win 15 of their last 16 posporo (Bundesliga).
Home team will need to integrate many new players into the team this Summer, but they already played and looked generaly well organised in the first round. Wolfsburg looked poor on the other side and with many injuries hitting the club now, I can’t see them being able to fully cope with decently organised home team.
