Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt German Bundesliga Prediction
German Bundesliga | Signal Iduna Park | 14th February 2020
Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt are set to serve up an open encounter in their Friday night German Bundesliga fixture at Signal Iduna Park. Both teams have good quality going forward and are tipped to cancel each other in a match tipped to produce goals.
Borussia Dortmund had the chance to move closer to league leaders Bayern Munich last weekend but lost to Bayer Leverkusen in shocking fashion. Now, Lucien Favre’s team must dust themselves off and defeat a much-improved Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday night at the Signal Iduna Park to have a shot at reeling in Bayern Munich. Favre has injury issues concerning him at Borussia Dortmund. Captain Marco Reus is once again ruled out through injury. Making matters worse is creative midfielder Julian Brandt is also out with an injury. The coach will choose between Thorgan Hazard and American teenage sensation Gio Reyna for a place in the attack. Reyna has received a lot of attention akin to Christian Pulisic when he broke into the Borussia Dortmund first team. The attention is well deserved for the teenager.
Eintracht Frankfurt are ninth in the Bundesliga, but since returning from the winter break, they are unbeaten in four straight league matches. Three of those four games ended in wins for the Eagles, having found form after a much-need rest in December and January. Full-back Timmy Chandler has become one of the team’s top scorers notching four goals in the last four Bundesliga matches. Winger Filip Kostic is also in-form heading into the weekend. Hutter will have striker Bas Dost available after he suffered an illness. It is likely the coach will start Andre Silva in attack, however.
Eintracht Frankfurt have not defeated Borussia Dortmund since November 2016. The yellow and black are on a seven-match unbeaten run versus the Eagles. The last two fixtures between Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt ended in score draws. The two sides have both found the back of the net in their last eight meetings in all competitions. Seven of those eight fixtures saw over 2.5 goals scored. The two sides should again combine for over 2.5 goals with both teamsn finding the back of the net.
