After their European success in Marseille, Eintracht are back to Bundesliga business on Saturday when they face VfB Stuttgart.

After carving out a hard-fought 1-0 win in their second UEFA Champions League group game against Olympique de Marseille, Eintracht Frankfurt are now turning their attentions to Matchday 7 of the Bundesliga. Saturday’s opponents are Stuttgart (kick-off 15:30 CEST), and if past encounters are anything to go by, there should be no shortage of goals. The match at Stuttgart’s Mercedes Benz Arena will be the 99th meeting between the two clubs in the Bundesliga, and when these two sides come together, it tends to be the respective attacks that come out on top. Five-time German champions VfB have scored more goals against Frankfurt (179) than any other opponent in the top flight, and the same applies the other way round, with Eintracht finding the back of the net 167 times against Stuttgart.
