Potentially one of the most entertaining fixtures on Match Day 4 in the Bundesliga comes at Deutsche Bank Park as Eintracht Frankfurt play host to Stuttgart.

With Eintracht's games so far this season averaging three goals, and Stuttgart's a whopping five, the chance of a goalless draw would look to be slim in this one - although of course stranger things have happened.

Eintracht are without a win in three having followed up an opening day thrashing at Borussia Dortmund with draws against both Augsburg and Arminia Bielefeld. Stuttgart started well when battering Greuther Fürth, but have since slumped to defeats against both RB Leipzig and Freiburg.

There was nothing to split the sides last season, with this game finishing 1-1 and the reverse fixture 2-2.

Having gone unbeaten at home in the whole of last season, Eintracht are now without defeat in their last 20 here, scoring two or more in 13 of those games and conceding more than once only four times.

Stuttgart won seven of 17 on the road last term, scoring two or more seven times, and conceding two or more on seven occasions.

Eintracht are having to find a new way of doing things following the departure of prolific hitman André Silva over the summer, but that home record is a formidable one and we fancy they will just about have enough to get the job done against a Stuttgart outfit who fail to convince at the back.

Goals:
79 minutes 1-0 (Filip Kostic): Eintracht beginning to pin Stuttgart back as they pushed to find a late goal. A ball lofted into the area from deep and central only partially cleared. Djibril Sow playing the ball to Kostic outside the area to the left. Kostic taking matters into his own hands, driving forward into the left corner of the eighteen-yard box and drilling a fine low strike across goal and into the bottom right.


88 minutes 2-0 (Omar Marmoush): Credit to Stuttgart. They may have been a man down by this stage, but they were still managing to exert a late spell of pressure, and two minutes from time they made it pay. A ball clipped forward into the area and only nodded up into the air twice. Tanguy Coulibaly onto it outside the area to the right and nodding to Marmoush in the right of the area. Marmoush's initial stabbed effort seeming to be blocked by some combination of keeper and defender and running kindly for him to the left from where he had the simple task of stabbing into the empty net from around five yards out and central.


Analysis: Eintracht probably did just about edge this overall - having led in terms of possession, territory and total attempts. A one goal lead is always a precarious one though, and despite only nosing ahead relatively late, they were still unable to hang on.

League Standings: Eintracht fourth bottom following this result. Stuttgart sit tenth.
