Eagle-eyed view from on high

Munich – Every Bundesliga season is good for a surprise package or two and leading the way in that category at the moment, without much doubt, are Eintracht Frankfurt.

Freshly returned to the top flight after the briefest of demotions, the Eagles took off straight away, stirring things up with a confident and assertive brand of attacking football rarely seen in a promoted team. Coach Armin Veh and his charges are playing it cool and still insist that avoiding relegation is their primary season objective. Yet fourth in the table, on 30 points, they are considerably ahead of schedule as far as that goes.
