Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Deutsche Bank Park.
The Eagles are one of the weakest teams in the competition at the moment. They have remained winless all through their last five match-days – a feat only a handful of squads have achieved in the German top flight.
They have also registered a total of two wins in the league all through this season, and it had come against Hoffenheim, and Hertha – two other struggling squads in the competition.
Meanwhile, Der BVB are one of the absolute best teams in the Bundesliga, and with a phenomenal collection of offensive talents – they have been scoring goals for fun lately.
However, they faced an unexpected loss this last match-day, and that has set them back a few paces in the title race.
The team desperately needs to get back into their winning track, and this match-up against the struggling Adolf Hutter’s men seems like the perfect opportunity to go after a huge, confidence-boosting scoreline.
Moreover, Lucien Favre’s men also have been the better team in h2h encounters over the years.
Taking these observations into account, expect a great game from Borussia Dortmund.
