• This is the 10th top-flight meeting between the two sides. Hoffenheim lead the head-to-head record: TSG have won five times, Frankfurt twice (2 draws).
  • With 67 goals scored, Hoffenheim have the third-best attack in the league after Dortmund (71) and Bayern (84). TSG have never scored as many goals in a whole Bundesliga season before.
  • With 66 goals conceded, TSG have the worst defence in the league. Hoffenheim are only the third team in Bundesliga history to have conceded at least 66 goals after 31 games and still have a positive goal difference (previously Frankfurt 81/82 and Kaiserslautern 73/74).
  • Frankfurt have lost four of their last six away games in the Bundesliga (W1, D1) and have conceded 16 goals in the process – only Hoffenheim have conceded as many in their last six away matches.
  • There have been 133 goals in TSG’s 31 matches this season, an average of 4.3 per game. The Bundesliga record is held by Frankfurt, whose matches in 1981/82 produced 155 goals (83 scored, 72 conceded), an average of 4.6 goals per game.
  • Hoffenheim have the best chance-conversion rate in the league (18.8%, the same as Bayern).
  • If Eintracht were to win, they would guarantee their Bundesliga safety.
  • Hoffenheim have been awarded 13 penalties this season. If they won another one, TSG would equal HSV’s record of 14 set in the 1998/99 season.
  • With 25 scorer-points (14 goals + 11 assists), Roberto Firmino is the league’s second-best points-scorer after Marco Reus (26 scorer-points). The Brazilian’s tally of 11 assists is a league high (together with Reus).
  • Stefan Aigner has been involved in six goals in his last six games (1 goal, 5 assists) and is Frankfurt’s top points-scorer with 11 scorer-points.
  • The next goal Frankfurt let in will be the 100th Armin Veh has conceded in the Bundesliga as Eintracht manager. Veh has already faced TSG with five different sides (Augsburg, Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Frankfurt).
