Eintracht Frankfurt 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season we predict Frankfurt will challenge for Europe but will fail to qualify for the Champions League. They have a very strong and young squad that will only improve as the season continues.  They have players like Lindstrom for example who in 23 and in his first season had 10 G/A and in his second got 13G/A. If he and everyone else continues to improve they will be on course for another impressive season. They were also able to keep a hold of Kolo Muani this season. Kolo Muani got 29 G/A  in the Bundesliga last season netting 15 goals and getting 14 assists. Overall he contributed 40 G/A last season in all competitions. He is a very dangerous player who will help them win lots of games.
