Eintracht Frankfurt resumed their preparations for the Bundesliga restart with an open training session in front of several hundred fans on Tuesday.

After a six-day winter training camp in the Spanish city of Alicante, the Eagles resumed preparations for the Bundesliga restart on the Commerzbank Arena training pitches on Tuesday. Despite a temperature difference of almost ten degrees Celsius, Niko Kovac's troops were cheered by the sight of the sun poking out from behind the clouds and several hundred fans in attendance at the open training session to offer support.

The session lasted almost two hours, with Kovac putting his team through their paces and trying out several different formations, with the focus firmly on Saturday's meeting with Freiburg.

"It was a tough training session," said Prince Boateng. "We worked well, though, and the coach praised us for it. Our aim is to build on a good first half of the season by taking three points against Freiburg. Nothing else matters. We're going to go about that by defending aggressively and keeping the ball. That's what we're working on at the moment and we're definitely on the right track."

As well as long-term absentees Jonathan de Guzman and Alex Meier, David Abraham (calf), Taleb Tawatha (groin), Ante Rebic (cold) and Max Besuschkow (cold) all sat out of the session.
