Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 14 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park, Dortmund.
The Eagles failed to back up the opening victory over Freiburg falling 1-2 at home to Werder Bremen in the second round of the new Bundesliga campaign.
The reigning DFB Pokal winners will now have a very challenging task to bounce back against the likes of Borussia Dortmund in the first game of the Matchday No 3 on Friday evening at Signal-Iduna-Park.
The hosts also disappointed in the second round failing to break the deadlock away at Hannover, but the new manager Adi Hutter still has reasons to be satisfied with the start of the season after the inaugural victory over RB Leipzig on the opening day.
Unlike Frankfurt, Dortmund were in action last Thursday when they demolished lower division Osnabruck 6-0 in a friendly. The win was inspired by left winger Jacob Bruun Larsen who bagged four goals on the occasion.
The Danish youngster is yet to earn his first official minutes on the pitch just as the most recent signing Paco Alcacer who could get the chance to start here against Eintracht.
Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
We should really be in for a high-scoring thriller on Friday judging by the most recent head to head trend in matches between these two likes.
Each of past five head to head outings saw goals at both ends as well as three or more goals.
Die Schwarzgelben were more successful of late, winning three and drawing one of last four H2H games.
Dortmund won all of past seven home matches against the Eagles.
Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
Frankfurt’s defensive line revealed signs of vulnerability in the previous round against Werder and we can hardly see them stopping the likes of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, Cristian Pulisic and Paco Alcacer here.
The most recent head to head record suggests a home win in goals galore and that’s exactly the scenario we are expecting to witness on Friday evening at Signal-Iduna-Park.
