Eintracht Frankfurt: Europe's form team ahead of Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur

Eintracht Frankfurt are currently the most in-form team in Europe's top five leagues, leading fellow Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, as well as the likes of Manchester City, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Eagles are soaring high in Frankfurt right now with nine competitive wins in their last 10 matches, a better record than reigning English Premier League champions Man City and French counterparts PSG. It’s also seen them collect the maximum 15 points from each of their five matches in the UEFA Europa League.

Bundesliga leaders Dortmund boast a near-maximum haul in that time, scoring 23 goals in those 10 matches matches, but Adi Hütter's men claim the honour of Europe's form side with just seven goals conceded to BVB’s twelve for a goal difference of +25. Manchester City of the Premier League are two points worse off, having won eight of their last 10, with the same number of goals scored.

Third in Europe over the last 10 games are French champions PSG, who sit ahead of Serie A leaders Juventus by one point, but also 12 goals scored. The Italian side have suffered defeat in their last 10 outings, a feat none of the teams above have suffered.

Frankfurt scoring for fun

It may be Dortmund receiving all the plaudits around Europe right now, including praise from Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone after BVB thrashed his side 4-0 in the UEFA Champions League, but Eintracht have been just as exciting to watch in that time.

Their 32 goals in the last 10 games includes a 7-1 beating of Fortuna Düsseldorf on Matchday 8, the inspiration for which was a historic five-goal haul from striker Luka Jovic – the youngest player to do so, and the first ever in a Frankfurt shirt in the Bundesliga.

Hütter a happy man

Eintracht lost four of their first five competitive matches under coach Hütter. They were swept aside by Bayern Munich in the Supercup (5-0), before the DFB Cup holders were knocked out of the competition in the first round by fourth-tier Ulm (2-1). Defeats to Werder Bremen (2-1) and Dortmund (3-1) followed a 2-0 win at Freiburg on the opening weekend of the Bundesliga season.

"The criticism after the Bayern and Ulm defeats was justified," Hütter told German tabloid Bild. "However, things weren't easy at the start with the trip to America, players leaving, international players coming back late. Things weren't working, but I felt I'd get the time I needed, and now I'm definitely a much happier coach than I was at the start of the season."

The hottest team in Europe right now, Frankfurt have a reputation to uphold when they host Wolfsburg on Sunday.
