Frankfurt - Eintracht Frankfurt face the unenviable task of trying to derail FC Bayern München conquerors VfL Wolfsburg on Tuesday night (kick-off 19:00 GMT/ 20:00 CET).

bundesliga.com puts both sides under the microscope going into Matchday 19's Englische Woche.

Frankfurt are currently ninth in the table, albeit with only a six-point cushion on the relegation zone. Second-placed Wolfsburg's agenda, meanwhile, comprises closing the gap on leaders Bayern and keeping the likes of Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Schalke 04 at arm's length.

David Kinsomba is the most likely candidate to fill in for first-choice right-back Timothy Chandler, who misses out after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season against SC Freiburg. Fit-again (r.) was an unused substitute at the weekend, but is also an option at the back.

Dieter Hecking has no new injury concerns following Friday's emphatic display. Vieirinha excelled at right-back in place of Sebastian Jung, with (l.) just as impressive deputising for Joshua Guilavogui (thigh) in defensive midfield. Andre Schürrle could feature after signing on deadline day from Chelsea FC.

This season's leading Bundesliga goalscorer will look to put his wealth of prior experience to good use on Matchday 19. The 32-year-old has netted 13 goals so far this season and will fancy his chances of adding to that tally against a Wolfsburg back four that's conceded at least once in each of their last five league games.

Kevin De Bruyne was in a world of his own against Bayern on Friday, scoring twice and chipping in with his 11th assist of the season to boot. The Belgian's energy levels were on another level and his finishing was quite simply superb. If Frankfurt give him an inch, he'll run a mile.

Thomas Schaaf (Frankfurt head coach, r.): We've seen what [Wolfsburg] are capable of […] We want to stand up to them and put in a good display."

Dieter Hecking (Wolfsburg head coach): "We can't afford any slip-ups, otherwise we'll be under immediate pressure from the teams directly below us."

Frankfurt remain winless in their last four outings after throwing away a one-goal lead in an eventual 4-1 defeat to Freiburg on Matchday 18. Wolfsburg's 4-1 hammering of Bayern, by contrast, extended their unbeaten league run to six. As a side note, only three of the Wolves' 11 league wins this season have come on the road.

Eintracht have beaten the Auto City club just once on home soil in the last eight seasons in which they've been in the top flight, while Wolfsburg recorded only their second win at the Commerzbank Arena in the self-same period last term. The two sides' last meeting ended in a 2-2 draw on Matchday 2.

Possible line-ups:

Frankfurt: Trapp - Kinsombi, Zambrano, Anderson, Oczipka - Stendera, Hasebe - Aigner, Inui - Seferovic, Meier

Wolfsburg: Benaglio - Vieirinha, Naldo, Knoche, Rodriguez - Arnold, Luiz Gustavo - D. Caligiuri, De Bruyne, Perisic - Dost
