While the Nerazzurri have struggled in recent weeks, Eintracht Frankfurt are still unbeaten in 2019.
Spalletti said, “They are a team that tend to take the initiative and force their way into a game, at times not in the cleanest fashion, but they want to create a high tempo with physical clashes. When they see themselves getting pressed, they punt long balls to the strikers and rely on their height and strength to create chances.
“These are 'typically German' centre-forwards with their power and mentality. We must be able to match them on those qualities."
