High-flying Eintracht Frankfurt will look to extend their current five-game winning run in the Bundesliga when they travel to Werder Bremen on Friday at 7.30pm (UK time).
Adi Hutter’s side are enjoying a rich vein of form in the German top flight, recently adding the scalp of Bayern Munich to their impressive collection with a 2-1 win at the weekend. Their next test is an away trip to middling club Werder Bremen.

Werder Bremen vs Frankfurt build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Florian Kohfeldt’s men retained their top-flight status last term by the skin of their teeth, edging promotion hopefuls Heidenheim in the relegation play-offs, and while this season has been anything but a familiar tale of woe at the Weserstadion, they are just five places above 16th and will want to extend that gap in these coming weeks.
By contrast The Eagles are soaring with immense altitude and are on a tear of nine wins across their last 10 games. Such form has fired them into the top four and Hutter will hoping his side don’t allow their recent win over Bayern (albeit a weakened XI) to get to their heads.
After such a huge win it’s commonplace to let your guard down and let complacency creep in. Hutter’s job will be to prevent that from happening, while keeping his players grounded as we approach a crucial few weeks in this Bundesliga campaign.
- Werder Bremen (vs Hoffenheim): Pavlenka; Veljkovic, Toprak, Friedl; Selassie, Eggestein, Mohwald, Bittencourt, Agu; Sargent, Rashica.
- Frankfurt (vs Bayern Munich): Trapp; Tuta, Hinteregger, N’Dicka*; Toure, Hasebe, Rode, Kostic; Kamada, Younes, Jovic.
Patrick Erras and Luca Plogmann are both currently sidelined for the hosts, while Hutter will be without Evan N’Dicka, who picked up his fifth yellow card of the campaign against Bayern.

Players to watch:
- Werder Bremen: If Bremen are to ensure they don’t get dragged into another relegation battle, and live with relative comfort in mid table, then they will need to start scoring more goals. It’s as simple as that really. Only five teams have netted fewer than their 24, while the highest scorer among their ranks only has four to his name. That man is Leonardo Bittencourt, a player who often blows hot and cold, but when he is in the mood, can be a wonderful sight to behold. Tipped for big things when Dortmund signed him from Energie Cottbus in 2012, the 27-year-old is yet to live up to the potential of the once grand hype he generated all those years ago. But, for Bremen, he remains their talisman and a creative force capable of turning it on when the mood sits right.
- Frankfurt: The Eagles are currently enjoying their joint-best Bundesliga season in club history, with 42 points from 22 games, and that is in no short part thanks to the scoring efforts of Andre Silva, the second-top scorer in Germany this season (18). The Portuguese striker entered the Munich game on a run of nine goals in just eight games in 2021, including four on the spin, but his involvement against the champions was non-existent as a back complication kept him out. Frankfurt went on to prove they are more than a one-man band as they put Hansi Flick’s treble winners to the sword, but Hutter will definitely be pleased to see his top marksman return. Silva has scored in all three of his Bundesliga games against Bremen, and will be looking to make it four in a row on Friday.
