Eintracht Frankfurt: The expected line-up against VfB Stuttgart
Eintracht Frankfurt is challenged at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday afternoon. Oliver Glasner could muster this starting eleven in Swabia.
Eintracht Frankfurt celebrated against Olympique Marseille on Tuesday evening the first Champions League victory (1-0) in club history. Head coach Oliver Glasner wants to take the momentum from the second group game into the Bundesliga. On Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3:30 p.m.) the Hessians are guests at VfB Stuttgart.
After "seven very intense days". glazier released to his team on Thursday "so that they can get away from football and distract themselves," said the Eintracht coach at the press conference on Friday afternoon. After the exhausting game in Marseille, it was also good "to have three days off between games," the Austrian continued. "We are physically and mentally fit."
"We want the spirit and energy that we are in Marseilles had," said Glasner, who expects a difficult and hard-fought game in Stuttgart. "Their results so far don't match their performance, they could have won a game or two," stressed the trainer. VfB, who have already drawn five games on the account, have a clear playing system and fast offensive players.
Pellegrini is still out
In addition to Christopher Lenz (thigh fascial tear), Almamy Touré (tendon injury), Jerome Onguené (adductor injury) and Aurelio Buta (knee surgery) also fell Luca Pellegrini with muscular problems. "He's been training with little effort all week," explained Glasner. "We want to use the international break to give him the right physical input so that he builds the right capacity for our game."
Makoto Hasebe and Kristijan Jakic struggled with minor problems after the away game in Marseille. "But both have signaled that it is possible," the SBU coach gave the all-clear. Therefore, nothing should stand in the way of an application.
"We rotate mostly, but in moderation. The guys who want to and can go through 90 minutes will play," says Glasner. However, major changes in the starting eleven are not to be expected after the convincing performance in the premier class. It is also conceivable that the initial formation will remain completely unchanged.
The expected Eintracht line-up against Stuttgart
TW: Kevin Trapp - As usual, the 32-year-old goalkeeper guards the SBU goal.
IV: Tuta - If Glasner holds on to the back three on the defensive, the Brazilian starts again on the right.
IV: Makoto Hasebe - In Marseille, the veteran showed once again that at the age of 38 he is far from being old-fashioned.
IV: Evan N'Dicka - In the back three, N'Dicka takes over on the left side.
RM: Kristijan Jakic - If the Croatian is given the green light, he should start again on the right flank.
ZM: Daichi Kamada - Since captain Sebastian Rode is probably not yet a candidate for the starting XI, the Japanese could start again in central midfield. Junior Dina Ebimbe is the more defensive alternative.
ZM: Djibril Sow - There is nothing to shake about the Swiss national player.
LM: Ansgar Knauff - The BVB loan cut a good figure in the premier class on the left flank.
OM: Jesper Lindström - Rafael Borré could also start instead of the Dane.
OM: Mario Götze - The world champion is expected again in the attacking midfield.
MS: Randal Kolo Muani – Glasner will probably muster the newcomer again in the center of attack.
