This weekend’s most anticipated Bundesliga fixture came at the Red Bull Arena as RB Leipzig welcomed Eintracht Frankfurt. Both teams began the season with a win last week. Frankfurt overcame Hoffenheim in a tight game at home, whilst Leipzig trounced Bundesliga new boys Union Berlin 4-0.
With Leipzig looking to make a challenge for the title this year, this fixture was an excellent chance to show whether this is a realistic goal. Frankfurt finished seventh last season and managed a semi-final in the Europa League and would provide a tough challenge. Both of their games against Leipzig last season ended in stalemates.
