Eintracht Frankfurt, 10th place in the standings with 28 points meets at home in the 23rd round of the Bundesliga Union Berlin, 12th in the standings with 26 points. The match will take place on Monday, February 24th from 8:30 pm local time at Commerzbank-arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht is in excellent form at home and has the chance, at this stage, to approach the European Cups area. The Frankfurt-based group will attempt to secure their fifth win in a row at the Commerzbank Arena (in all competitions). The team is forced to impose herself with Union Berlin in order not to be overtaken in the ranking by the newly promoted. On Thursday, players prepared by Adolf Hutter gave offensive recital in the 16th round of Europa League. They didn't give Leipzig a chance – after 56 minutes they led 4-0, thanks to Kamada's hat-trick and Kostic's success. The goal scored by Hwang Hee-Chan in the end didn't matter. In their last two home games in the Bundesliga, Eintracht scored seven goals without conceding any.
Union Berlin comes after a crazy game, in which they lost at the last stage. The newly-promoted led Leverkusen 1-0, but the opponent turned the result around in the 83rd minute. Bulter restored the tie, but he could not help his team get a point. In the fourth minute of overtime, Bellarabi made it 3-2 and Bayer left the capital victorious. Union is looking for the first success in the club's history with Frankfurt. There have been eight direct matches so far and the eagles have always retained their invincibility. Urs Fischer's band will still have great difficulties now, especially since captain Christopher Trimmel is missing. The Austrian received his fifth yellow card and misses his first game of the season.
