Eintracht Frankfurt have paid the ultimate price for their faltering form over the last couple of weeks, as they are now unable to qualify for the Champions League. They will at least look to end the season with a positive result against Freiburg.
Up until a month ago, Frankfurt had been one of the leading contenders to finish in a Champions League position in the Bundesliga. Their form was rock solid, and they had their own destiny in their hands. However, they have faltered, and allowed Borussia Dortmund to leapfrog them into one of the top four positions in the league standings. Frankfurt only have themselves to blame for not finishing in the Champions League places, as they have lost three of their last five games. They have only picked up one win during this run of games. Their misery was compounded this past weekend, as they handed Schalke just a third win of the season, which meant that the final Champions League spot is Wolfsburg’s. Frankfurt led the game against Schalke 2-1 early in the second half, before squandering that lead to eventually lose 4-3.
Freiburg have enjoyed a decent season in the Bundesliga, and could yet finish as high as seventh in the league standings. They have been in decent form recently, as they have lost just once in their last five outings. Freiburg come into the final round of games in tenth place, but a win could see them jump to seventh depending on the other results this weekend. Seventh would highlight an excellent campaign for the German side, and they would be fully deserving of that finish. Freiburg were excellent in their last game, as Christian Gunter scored a late equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich.
