Bayer Leverkusen host Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday at 5:30pm (UK time) in a key battle for European qualification in the Bundesliga.

The visitors currently occupy the fourth and final Champions League spot and sit four points clear of Borussia Dortmund. Leverkusen, meanwhile, are sixth and although a win here would give them a slim chance of gatecrashing the top four, they’ll perhaps be more concerned with holding off Borussia Monchengladbach who trail by four points in seventh.

Leverkusen vs Frankfurt build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

After a wonderful start, Leverkusen’s 2020/21 campaign has descended into something of an inconsistent mess. Die Werkself have failed to win back-to-back Bundesliga matches since mid-December and as a result, they’ve slipped out of the top four. They still maintain slim hopes of qualifying for the Champions League but must win here to keep that dream alive.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, are on the cusp of Champions League football next season. Adi Hutter’s side are four points clear of Dortmund with just four games to go and can eliminate Leverkusen from the race with a win on Saturday. Frankfurt lost 4-0 to Borussia Monchengladbach just a week ago, but recovered well to beat Augsburg 2-0 on Tuesday.

  • Leverkusen (vs Bayern Munich): Hradecky; Tah, S. Bender, Tapsoba; Frimpog, Aranguiz, Palacios, Sinkgraven; Diaby, Bailey; Schick.
  • Frankfurt (vs Augsburg): Trapp; Tuta, Hinteregger, Ndicka; Chandler, Sow, Rode*, Kostic; Kamada; Jovic, Silva.

Though Leverkusen are finally getting some of their star players back, with Nadiem Amiri now ready to return as well, they still have a lengthy list of absentees. Julian Baumgartlinger, Lars Bender and Timoty Fosu-Mensah remain sidelined, while Paulinho and Santiago Arias are both doubts.

Sebastian Rode is suspended after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season against Augsburg, while Almamy Toure and Ragnar Ache are both injured.

Players to watch:

  • Leverkusen: Though his form has dipped over recent months as his side has struggled for consistency, Leon Bailey remains one of Leverkusen’s prime attacking threats. Bailey drew a blank against Bayern on Tuesday but the Jamaica international grabbed two goals and an assist in Die Werkself‘s last victory (3-0 vs FC Köln), bringing his tallies to eight goals and seven assists in 28 appearances this season. Can he score his first-ever goal against Frankfurt to inspire Leverkusen to a valuable victory this weekend?
  • Frankfurt: With just a handful of games to go, one of the most interesting narratives remaining in the Bundesliga is who will finish second to Robert Lewandowski in the goalscoring charts. Andre Silva currently occupies that spot with 24 goals, one clear of Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and four ahead of Wout Weghorst of Wolfsburg. The Portugal international netted Frankfurt’s second in a 2-0 win over Augsburg last time out and he’ll need to be the difference-maker again if Die Adler are to breach the Bundesliga’s third-best defence.
