Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt.
In-form Eintracht Frankfurt welcome Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in the derby match of Saturday. The visitors have suffered an extremely disappointing result on Tuesday and Bosz might find some trouble in motivating his men ahead of the upcoming match.
After the offensive woes at the start of the season, Niko Kovac have found the perfect formula and Frankfurt are now on a two-game winning streak. The hosts are now in the seventh place with 13 points collected and they are already eyeing the UEFA zone.
Frankfurt’s last three games were ended with the result of 2-1 so the upcoming match at Commerzbank-Arena promises a lot of goals.
BVB were vastly disappointed as they brought only a point from the Cyprus visit. APOEL held them off in the 1-1 draw which significantly decreased their chances for reaching Champions League playoffs as they were drawn with Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid.
Bosz will have an extremely important job ahead of the match to find the way to motivate the squad after the two disappointing results. They suffered the first defeat of the season as RB Leipzig beat them 2-3 at Signal Iduna Park and with Bayern Munich breathing at their necks, Dortmund might crack under the pressure.
