Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 5.
Eintracht Frankfurt head coach Niko Kovac is not expected to make wholesale changes to their side that beat Ingolstadt in midweek. Ante Rebic has recovered from the hip injury he picked up in the game, but may still have to make way for Mijat Gacinovic in the starting line-up.
Up against the German record titleholders, Hertha boss Pal Dardai opted for a more defensive-minded first XI, but is likely to revert back to his tried and tested 4-2-3-1 formation in Frankfurt. As a result Valentin Stocker and Per Skjelbred are expected to feature from the start, while the game comes too soon for John Anthony Brooks and Salomon Kalou.
Hertha's road game against Frankfurt kicks off at 15:30CEST/13:30GMT on 24 September. Find out where to watch the game where you are by clicking on this link.
