Frankfurt squad & team news

There was plenty of change over the off-season at Frankfurt, with Filip Kostić claimed by Juventus, but the arrival of Mario Götze certainly means the German outfit have brought in some strength to the core of their squad.

Sebastian Rode could be an absentee for the hosts after he was withdrawn early on against RB Leipzig in their most recent Bundesliga game.
