Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt kick off the Bundesliga weekend with a meeting at the Volkswagen Arena on Friday at 7:30pm.
Oliver Glasner’s side enter this contest still unbeaten in the league, one of only two teams yet to taste defeat alongside Bayer Leverkusen, but a string of draws (six from 10 games) places the Wolves in fifth. In fact, the only club that have registered more draws than Wolfsburg this season are their opponents, Frankfurt, with just two wins on the board and seven stalemates to show for their efforts.

Wolfsburg vs Frankfurt build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Wolfsburg’s last outing at home, a 5-3 win over Werder Bremen, marked the first time Glasner has registered three consecutive wins at the Volkswagen Arena during his tenure. The club last achieved four on the spin at home between May and September 2015, and Glasner will be hoping to replicate that feat.
However, Adi Hutter has overseen just the single defeat this season, though his side haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 15 Bundesliga games (24 goals conceded), so he will have to tighten things up at the back if he is to mastermind an away win and start climbing up the table.
- Wolfsburg (vs FC Koln): Casteels; Baku, Lacroix, Brooks, Roussillon; Schlager, Arnold, Brekalo, Philipp, Steffen*; Weghorst.
- Eintracht Frankfurt (vs Dortmund): Trapp; Abraham, Hinteregger, N’Dicka; Durm, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Barkok, Kamada, Silva.
Glasner will be without Yunus Malli, Admir Mehmedi and Renato Steffen through injury, while Josuha Guilavogui remains a major doubt with a thigh problem. For Frankfurt, Jetro Willems and Ragnar Ache are currently occupying the treatment tables, while Napoli loanee Amin Younes is touch and go to make the matchday squad.
Player to watch: Wout Weghorst (Wolfsburg)
There is no question that Glasner will be looking to expose Frankfurt’s leaky backline, one that has conceded the most goals in the top half of the table (17) and failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 15 league games. Fortunately for the Austrian coach he is able to call upon Wout Weghorst, who is in a rich vein of form at the minute.
The towering Dutch striker has netted in each of his last four games, a personal best, and he will be hoping to extend that run and move to within one of the club’s current record holders for consecutive scoring streaks: both Edin Dzeko and Andrzej Juskowiak on six.
