Eintracht Frankfurt vs Napoli- Head to Head and Key Numbers
- This will be the third encounter between Eintracht Frankfurt and Napoli, with the Germans winning the first two in the UEFA Cup last 16 in 1994-95. (1-0 home and away).
- Eintracht Frankfurt have won their previous two UEFA Champions League matches (2-1 against Sporting CP and 2-1 against Marseille), with Oliver Glasner being the only Austrian manager to do so.
- Eintracht Frankfurt will be the 11th different German team to play in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds, making Germany the only country with more than teams to have reached this level of the league (Spain on 10).
Junior Eric’s Dina Ebimbe is still out for the hosts due to an ankle injury, while teenage midfielder Marcel Wenig is questionable. Tuta will return to the midfield with Kamada and Sow to help Glasner’s men defend the back line. The frontline partnership of Gotze and Kolo Muani has looked increasingly opulent with each passing day, and it will be something they will aim to capitalize on.
There are no major misses for Spalletti’s Napoli team that make their way to the Deutsche Bank Park. The usual front three of Lozano, Kvaratskhelia, and Osimhen is anticipated to deliver, but the midfield three may be switched with like-for-like substitutions.
Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup;
Trapp: Smolcic, N’Dicka, Tuta: Buta, Kamada, Sow, Max: Lindstrom, Gotze: Kolo Muani
