Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Runaway leaders successfully passed a very tough RB Leipzig test right at the start of the year away at RB Arena. A super-important 0-1 win was followed by an expected 51 thumping of relegation strugglers Hannover last weekend at Signal-Iduna-Park.
BVB thus maintained a big six-point cushion at the top of the standings. However, they are to face another decent challenge on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Frankfurt to take on Champions League hopefuls Eintracht at Commerzbank-Arena.
The hosts have one of the deadliest attacking lines in the league. Luka Jovic, Sebastien Haller and Ante Rebic bagged 31 goals combined in 19 rounds so far and they will no doubts be a big threat to Burki’s goal on the occasion.
Frankfurt notched five goals in two league games in the New Year. Nevertheless, they failed to keep things tight at the back in any of these two which is why Borussia should really be in position to maintain their superb attacking form here in Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
The head to head tradition also suggests we should be in for a goal fest when these two sides come across each other on Saturday.
All of past six H2H affairs saw at least three goals scored as well as both teams on the scoresheet.
Dortmund were much more successful in recent outings against the Eagles.
BVB won four and drew one of past five matches against Frankfurt.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Eintracht scored as many as 22 goals in nine home outings in this term of Bundesliga. They will also be highly motivated to take a huge scalp in front of the home crowed and keep the push for RB Leipzig who are three points away in fourth. This match just has to produce goals and we see the value in backing the continuation of an Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS trend at 1.80 odds.
Over 3.5 goals FT is paid at 2.37 and looks to be an ideal alternative betting option here.
