A week before the start of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Nottm Forest will conclude pre-season by facing Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany on Saturday afternoon.

Steve Cooper's side successfully avoided relegation to the Championship last term, finishing 16th after losing only one of their last six matches. Despite a haphazard approach to recruitment which saw Forest bring in dozens of new players across two transfer windows, the club from the Midlands kept their heads above water in the top tier of English soccer.

Survival will be the main objective again this season in what promises to be a competitive Premier League. The fact that Cooper remains at the City Ground is a huge plus for Forest, who were in the Championship relegation zone when the Welshman took the job in September 2021.

Pre-season has not gone particularly well so far, however. Forest began by edging out their neighbors Notts County 1-0, and they also beat Levante 2-1. But defeats by Valencia (0-1), Leeds United (0-2), PSV (0-1) and Rennes (0-5) were cause for concern, especially as Forest did not manage a single goal in any of those games.

Eintracht Frankfurt finished seventh in the Bundesliga last time out but they are now under new management, with Dino Toppmoller replacing Oliver Glasner. Frankfurt drew 1-1 with Dutch side Vitesse last Friday and will now be looking to see off Forest in front of their own supporters at Deutsche Bank Park.

Cooper will want to see a reaction from his players following that 5-0 thumping by Rennes. Another heavy defeat here would dampen the mood ahead of the big kick-off in the Premier League, with Forest due to start their season with a daunting trip to Arsenal. After that, two of their next three games are against Manchester United and Chelsea.

Can Nottm Forest get the better of their German hosts? Tune into the Eintracht Frankfurt vs Nottm Forest live stream to find out. We’ll show you how to watch it from anywhere, and potentially for FREE.
