INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Frankfurt is in very strong form at the moment, losing just one of their last seven Bundesliga matches. They have stabilised their home form, where they are unbeaten in four and won their last two, which makes them serious contenders for a top-6 spot or higher this season.
Leipzig sit two points ahead of Frankfurt after back-to-back wins, but have only won one of their last six matches on the road. They might have to deal with fatigue after a Europa League match on Thursday here, but will benefit from one more day of rest, thanks to the new Monday night kick-off time.
Expect this to become an intense and hard-fought game between two well-organised sides.
