  • Eintracht are without a Bundesliga win in nine matches (D5 L4), a run they last suffered between January and March of their 2010/11 relegation season. Frankfurt have collected more points from their five Europa League matches (12) than they have from their 14 league games (11).
  • Frankfurt have failed to win any of their first six Bundesliga home games for the first time in their history. In total, Eintracht are without a win in their last seven top-flight home matches.
  • Hoffenheim have won just once in their last nine matches, collecting just six points in that timeframe (W1, D3, L5). Last season (12 points) was the only time Hoffenheim have had fewer points at this stage.
  • Frankfurt are having their worst season in terms of points since 2003/04. Back then, the Eagles also had 11 points after 14 matchdays and ended the campaign with relegation.
  • Along with Bayern, Hoffenheim have the second-best attack in the league with 32 goals scored. However, TSG have conceded more goals than anyone else (34).
  • There have been 66 goals in the 14 Bundesliga matches involving Hoffenheim (4.7 per game). There have only been more goals in games involving a particular club at this stage of the season on three occasions (Bayern 76/77: 5.7 goals per game, Dortmund 63/64: 5.0, Gladbach 84/85: 4.8).
  • TSG have conceded at least once in each of their last 20 Bundesliga matches – an ongoing club record. Only Nürnberg are currently on a longer run (22 games without a clean sheet).
