• This is the 58th Bundesliga meeting between Frankfurt and Leverkusen – this fixture has never ended goalless (an average of 3.1 goals per game).
  • With a nine-point lead over the relegation play-off place, Eintracht Frankfurt can now start planning for a third successive Bundesliga season.
  • Bayer 04 Leverkusen are unbeaten in their last 11 Bundesliga games under Sascha Lewandowski (W8, D3).
  • Eintracht have already collected six points more in the second half of the season (21) than they did in the whole of the first half (15). It’s the first time since 2003/04 that Frankfurt have been better after the winter break in a Bundesliga campaign.
  • Leverkusen haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 Bundesliga games – the last time Bayer 04 went longer without one was in 2008/09 (a run of 14 games).
  • Kevin Trapp has saved three penalties this season (against Hunt, Huntelaar and Roberto Firmino), while Ibisevic put his penalty against Trapp wide. Only Bernd Leno has saved more penalties in the league this season (5).
  • Stefan Kießling is the only Bundesliga player to have featured in each of the last 118 matchdays – he is out for the rest of the season though after suffering a muscle tear in his left thigh.
  • Marco Russ’ last Bundesliga goal came against Leverkusen – he headed in a 61st-minute goal in Frankfurt’s 1-0 win earlier this season.
  • Roberto Hilbert conceded a penalty for the fifth time this season on the last matchday – no other player in the league has conceded more than two. No player has reached this tally before in a Bundesliga season since Opta started collecting detailed statistics in 2004/05.
  • The Leverkusen game will be Armin Veh’s final home match as Frankfurt manager – he has been at Eintracht since 2011, celebrated Bundesliga promotion with them in 2012 and also led the Eagles into Europe in the following campaign.
  • With an average of two points per game, Sascha Lewandowski is Leverkusen’s best Bundesliga manager of all time (at least 9 games in charge required).
