The Foals v Eagles preview
Back in April Eintracht won the DFB-Pokal semi final away against Borussia Mönchengladbach on penalties. Check out the preview for Saturday's encounter (kick-off 15.30 CET) at BMG.
Borussia Mönchengladbach - Eintracht Frankfurt
- Kick-off: Saturday (9 September 2017), 15.30 CET
- Venue: BORUSSIA-PARK, Mönchengladbach
- Referee: Dr Robert Kampka (8 Bundesliga games, 59 Bundesliga 2 games)
Before the Bundesliga break in which Makoto Hasebe's Japan as well as Marco Fabian and Carlos Salcedo's Mexico qualified for the World Cup 2018 the Eagles suffered a narrow 1-0 home defeat to VfL Wolfsburg. Borussia Mönchengladbach drew 2-2 at away against FC Augsburg after being two goals up already; Augsburg came back with a late equalizer.
Former M'Gladbach striker Branimir Hrgota is approaching his 100 league games milestone and might achieve exactly that against his former club. He scored the decisive penalty in the cup semi final shootout against BMG in April which meant that Eintracht would go to the Berlin final.
It's the 87th Bundesliga encounter between SGE and Mönchengladbach and our record is good: 32 Eintracht wins, 25 draws, 29 defeats. Frankfurt's had their most wins in the league against Werder Bremen (34) followed by Mönchengladbach (32); on the other hand SGE have not won against BMG in 5 league games now. Both encounters last season ended 0-0 each.
Around 3,200 Eintracht fans are going to support the Eagles at BORUSSIA-PARK on Saturday.
