RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt is one of the most interesting and exciting games of the second round of the Bundesliga, at Red Bull Arena, in Leipzig. Two most fast-growing teams will face each other to see who is stronger at the current Bundesliga stage. Previously, both teams showed themselves very well as fast, dangerous and talented. This year we will expect even better results, especially from the Eintracht team, although there have been many changes in the squad.

In total, during the history of their meetings, the teams played 6 times, since RB Leipzig is a very young team that was formed only in 2009 and has already reached the highest German league. In 3 last seasons of Bundesliga team which played on the road have never won the game. RB Leipzig won twice in 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons at Red Bull Arena, while Frankfurt won only once at Commerzbank-Arena. Other 3 matches finished with draws. 2 out of 6 matches ended without scoring at least by one team, as all other games were with goals from both teams. Teams play very beautifully and it is a great pleasure to follow their development not only in the club but also on the field. Read our thoughts about this RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt match here below.

RB Leipzig

RasenBallsport Leipzig is one of the most talented and prospect team in the world. The club was founded in 2009, only 10 years ago, and already reached the Bundesliga and were vice-champions. RB Leipzig team is extremely young, as their average age of the main squad is only 22.6. Moreover, their new head coach Julian Nagelsmann is also only 32. Most often, players finishing professional footballer career even later. Last year they took 3rd place in Bundesliga and finished their path in UEFA Europa League at the group stage. Leipzig in regular-season lost only once at home ground and in general showed best league defence. In 17 matches at home, they conceded only 9 goals, that is less than any other club in Bundesliga.

This team likes to train and grow players in their academy and then involve them to the main Leipzig squad. During summer transfer window they also brought several interesting and young players – Ademola Lookman, Christopher Nkunku, Hannes Wolf and Luan Candido. However, they sold Bruma, one of the leaders of the attack.

During the first round of Bundesliga Leipzig played against Union Berlin at Stadion An der Alten Försterei, in Berlin. Great defence, strongly built attack and middle of the pitch created lots of moments, scored 4 goals and saved the clean sheet. This is a perfect start of the regular season. And we hope these indicators will be only better during this season even against strongest opponents.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht started their season very actively. They had already 7 matches in different competitions, while RB Leipzig had only two in DFB Pokal and Bundesliga 1st round. In general, the biggest changes with the club are connected to Luka Jovic and Sebastian Haller departures, as they were two main squad strikers and attacking leaders. Of course, there are no irreplaceable people, therefore we are sure that they will find suitable replacements.

Eintracht Frankfurt won first Bundesliga match against also very talented club Hoffenheim at Commerzbank-Arena. Match finished with 1:0 result with only 1 scored a goal at 1st minute of the game. In general, Hoffenheim pressed and had the ball possession under their control, while Eagles had many counter-attacks and tried to catch rivals on their defensive mistakes. Before, we wrote that both teams will score, but the defence of Eintracht made a good impression and proved their advantage in this match by keeping a clean sheet.
