Eintracht Frankfurt are the Bundesliga’s most in-form team heading into matchday 23. On Friday night, the Eagles, fresh off a 2-1 win against Bayern Munich, will visit Werder Bremen with the chance to move into third place in the league. Adi Hutter’s team are playing brilliant football and have an outside shot at winning the Bundesliga. Just seven points separate them with Bayern Munich and that lead could be cut to four this weekend.

To find Werder Bremen in the current standings, you will need to scroll down to 12th in the division. Coach Florian Kohfeldt’s team have taken 23 points from 21 matchdays and are five points above Arminia Bielefeld – who occupy the relegation playoff place.

Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten in five straight league games against Werder Bremen, yet only two of those games ended in wins. The reverse fixture between the clubs played at the Deutsch Bank Park earlier this season finished 1-1. Josh Sargent opened the scoring for Werder Bremen with a 51st-minute goal. Andre Silva equalised 14 minutes later. Neither team were able to find the winner.

Werder Bremen are winless in their last three matches in the Bundesliga. Kohfeldt is desperate for his side to win and avoid a second straight season of playing in the relegation playoff game against the Bundesliga 2’s third-place finisher. Can the River Islanders get a win versus the Bundesliga’s most in-form side?

Werder Bremen vs Eintracht Frankfurt Team News

Kohfeldt goes into the game with just two players on his injury list for the weekend. Patrick Erras is ruled out with a hip injury and it will keep him sidelined until March. Luca Plogmann has a tendon injury but could return to the club on Friday night.

Werder Bremen are led in goals by the combination of Leonardo Bittencourt and Niclas Fullkrug. The duo has tallied eight goals – four apiece. The River Islanders have scored 24 goals, the sixth-fewest in the Bundesliga. Getting goals against an in-form Eintracht Frankfurt may be very difficult on Friday night.

Hutter has just one name on his suspension and injury list. Evan N’Dicka is suspended for the fixture and will play no part in the game. The defender has appeared in 12 games and scored two goals. He will return next week for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Eintracht Frankfurt are led in goals by former AC Milan striker Andre Silva. He has found a home at the club but is being linked with a transfer to Manchester United next summer. It would cost the Red Devils around £30 million. Eintracht Frankfurt previously showed they are not afraid to sell their top striker the following summer. They did it previously with Luka Jovic, Sebastien Haller, and Ante Rebic.
