Two great challenges lie in front of SGE before the spectacular 2016/2017 season is coming to an end. On Saturday (15.30 CET) the Eagles welcome RB Leipzig for the season finale at the "Waldstadion".

Matchday 34: Eintracht Frankfurt - RB Leipzig

  • Kick-off: Saturday (20 May 2017), 15.30 CET
  • Venue: Waldstadion, Frankfurt 
  • Referee: Felix Brych (231 Bundesliga matches)

Build-Up

For the final match of the Bundesliga season, the Eagles welcome RB Leipzig in Frankfurt. The Bundesliga newcomer has made the jump to the 2nd place in the league table and can't loose its place on the last matchday. After the 4-2 away defeat against Mainz, Eintracht's chances to move up in the standings have slimmed down quite a bit. Eintracht are currently ranked 11th and can make it to 9th place with a win, if Gladbach and Schalke lose at the same time. 

Season Finale at the "Waldstadion"

Eintracht's home ground has traditionally been called "Waldstadion". After major renovations the Stadium has been renamed Commerzbank Arena in 2005. However, the Commerzbank waived it's naming right in order to support a fan initiative in favor of expanding the available standing areas. Hence, Staurday's match will take in the "Waldstadion".  

Attendance

The match is most likely to be sold out. Only a few tickets are left so that Eintracht can expect about 51,000 fans at the Waldstadion.
