Eintracht Frankfurt defender Constant Djakapa insists that league form is his side's priority.

Eintracht Frankfurt defender Constant Djakpa has insisted that finishing as high as possible in the Bundesliga is his side's priority this season.

The German outfit will face Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals of the DFB Pokal next week, while a week after that they confront Porto in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie.

However, they are currently languishing down in 14th place in the Bundesliga table, just one point clear of the relegation playoff spot.

Frankfurt's next match comes against city rivals Eintracht Braunschweig, and Djakpa is expecting a tough game despite their opponents propping up the table.

"We're not thinking about the cups. We have Braunschweig next week. It will be a tough game and our position in the league isn't great. People assume Braunschweig will be easy, but it won't," Djakpa told the official Bundesliga website.

Frankfurt's last match saw them suffer a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of runaway league leaders Bayern Munich on Sunday.
