The Eagles stay unbeaten at home this season with a 1-1 draw against fellow promoted side Greuther Fürth. After Alex Meier's super early goal (1') the match turned out to be a tough affair for Eintracht. Fürth equalised with a Stieber chip (53') and came close to scoring a second. SGE held on to a draw and remain third on now 20 points.
In a tense and even match the Eagles suffered their second defeat of the season. They lost 2-1 away to VfB Stuttgart who mustered their first home win of the season with a late goal by Ibisevic (84’) - to some extend a lucky win for them. Gentner (6’) had opened the score for the hosts, Alex Meier equalised in between (67’).
It will be a special match for SGE manager Armin Veh on Sunday when Eintracht will meet VfB Stuttgart away (kick-off at 15.30h CET). Veh won the title with VfB in 2007 and is still fond of his old club. On the other hand it is the team Eintracht scored the most goals against (137) compared to all other Bundesliga clubs. And VfB have not yet won at home this season (2 draws, 2 defeats) while the Eagles collected 6 points in 3 away matches. Read all the stats, facts and figures.
