The German Bundesliga is back once again this weekend with a full slate of fixtures for fans up and down the country to enjoy. There’s still a whole lot that needs to be resolved across the next couple of weeks, with teams still competing at both ends of the table. Speaking of which, today we’re previewing a clash between two sides that are hoping for a big end to the campaign – Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Borussia Dortmund

Following a slow start to proceedings, Borussia Dortmund have really picked up the pace in the last few months. They are, for the first time in a while, mounting a serious challenge in an attempt to dethrone Bayern Munich as the kings of German football. They can be somewhat erratic in how they play from time to time which leads to a few hearts skipping a beat within the fanbase, but that’s part of their appeal.

Team News

Morey and Meunier are both out through injury here with Sule, Modeste and Schlotterbeck all being fitness doubts.

Eintracht Frankfurt

While they’ve enjoyed a lot of success in Europe across the last twelve months, it’s safe to say that Eintracht Frankfurt have let things slide in the Bundesliga ever so slightly this season. There’s still cause for optimism both in terms of finishing in the top six and competing in the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal, but if they want to finish strong, they need to start putting together some consistent results.

Team News

Ndicka and Jakic are both fitness concerns here with Max, Smolcic, Toure, Wenig and Lindstrom being injured.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting back in October, Dortmund beat Frankfurt 2-1.
  • Dortmund have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Frankfurt have won one, drawn two and lost three of their last six games.
  • Dortmund have scored 15 goals and conceded 13 in their last six games.
  • Frankfurt have scored five goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.


It feels like this one has the potential to descend into a bit of a shootout, and if that turns out to be the case, it’ll certainly favour Dortmund. They’re the ones who have to really go for it in the next 10 games if they want to make a genuine push for the title, whereas it feels as if Frankfurt are a bit devoid of confidence. If the hosts can get on their star players on the ball early on, we expect them to blow Frankfurt away.

Prediction: Dortmund win
