Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt)
A 3-2 Europa League loss against lowly Vitoria SC followed by disappointment away at Schalke have left the club in a precarious situation. They are in dire need of points at the moment and a clash against relegation-threatened FC Koln seems about right.

FC Koln manager Markus Gisdol will be hoping his team doesn’t fall victim of a backlash from Die Adler, as the latter will be looking to get their season right back on track, starting with victory against the Billy Goats.

The visiting contingent head into this game on the back of a commanding 2-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen and will be looking to replicate that impressive performance at the Commerzbank-Arena come Wednesday night.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Koln Team News

Die Adler laid blood and sweat bare on the pitch in a bid to bring their dismal run to a halt on the last match-day but eventually failed in their tracks. To be fair, they did not put a single foot wrong in the clash but had to settle for another defeat, raising tension around the club.

They had the away handicap to deal with, playing at the dreaded VELTINS-Arena as well as taking on an experienced Schalke 04 squad, so the fans would have no complaints about the 1-0 loss. The defeat was always on the cards for the visitors.

FC Koln, on the other hand, were successful last time out in the league clinching maximum points against seventh-placed Bayer Leverkusen in front of the home crowd. The latter turned Robin-Hood on the day, gifting out three points to lowly Koln, thanks to some individual player errors.

Leverkusen’s Dragovic and Bailey lounged into late-tackles in the second half of the game, as both players received their marching orders from the referee in the 62nd and 77th minute respectively. The home side capitalized on the numerical advantage, putting two goals past Leverkusen in the aftermath of the red-card incidents.

The victory bodes well with FC Koln supporters as they got one over Bundesliga giants in Bayer Leverkusen and will be hoping their side manages to pull off a Christmas miracle against this Frankfurt side.

However, this weekend, the dynamics are changed. Koln are on the road, and are taking on a desperate Frankfurt side, who will do anything for a victory.

Though the home side might not be on a good run of form at the moment, it goes without saying they have a talented group of players within their ranks and have all it takes to post all three points on the board.

The visitors are on a dismal five-game losing streak and with a trip to the dreaded Commerzbank-Arena on the horizon, things are looking really bleak for Markus Gisdol’s men here. A win, or even a draw, simply doesn’t seem feasible for FC Koln in this fixture.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Eintracht Frankfurt: Marco Russ, Kevin Trapp, David Abraham.

Koln: Marcel Risse, Thomas Kessler, Kingsley Ehizibue.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs FC Koln Predictions

Frankfurt have been one of the best home teams in the Bundesliga this season. In fact, they have lost just once this entire campaign when playing on home turf, that loss coming against tricky Wolfsburg.

FC Koln have a terrible away record, one of the worst in the Bundesliga and are currently in a battle to escape relegation come the end of the season.

Taking all these into consideration, the home side are easily overwhelming favorites heading into this fixture. Given the players can guard against complacency, they should not even have to break a sweat to dispatch this FC Koln side.
