We look set for a cracking encounter on Match Day 32 in the Bundesliga as eighth placed Bayer Leverkusen welcome fourth placed Eintracht Frankfurt to the BayArena, with both sides having their sights set on Champion's League football.


Leverkusen may be out of the European positions altogether as things stand, but will actually draw level on points with Frankfurt should they win this one. With Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim also within touching distance, Eintracht know that the teams are now queueing up to take advantage should they slip up.


Eintracht just edged it with a 2-1 win in the reverse of this fixture. It was all Leverkusen in the game here last season though, with the hosts posting a 4-1 success.


Leon Bailey, Karim Bellarabi, Joel Pohjanpalo and Panagiotis Retsos are all out injured for the home side. Eintracht must do without Taleb Tawatha and Sébastien Haller.


Leverkusen haven't been super reliable at home , with eight wins and six defeats from their fifteen fixtures to date. They will however at least have the advantage of being the fresher side with Eintracht having been in Europa League semi final action against Chelsea in midweek.


Eintracht are on a rock-solid run at present with just the one defeat in their past 14 in the league, and are unbeaten in their last seven on the road, scoring two or more in five of those games.


Eintracht are a better side than Leverkusen for our money - or at least are in better form. Having had that game in midweek though and being the away side, they may just have to settle for a point in this one.






Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 2 - 2 Eintracht Frankfurt
