Desperate to make a return to winning ways and once again move within touching distance of top spot, Borussia Dortmund will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to Signal-Iduna-Park on Friday night.
Eventually hit with a 4-3 defeat away at Bayer Leverkusen last weekend and now suffering back-to-back losses, Lucien Farve’s men have continued on what has been a rollercoaster campaign in rural Germany.
On the flip side, while BVB might simply be looking to refind their winning touch, Frankfurt have continued on what has been a stellar resurge since making their return from the festive break.
Looking to secure another campaign of European football for fans around the Commerzbank-Arena, the Reds are coming off the back of a thumping 5-0 win over Augsburg and are in the midst of a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
In what could be a lively encounter on Friday night, you might be interested to know that the two sides have played out back-to-back stalemates and an identical outcome can be found at 9/2 with Coral.
Borussia Dortmund – The most exciting team in Europe?
Putting in what was another all-out performance on the road last weekend in their dramatic 4-3 loss away at Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund have continued on what has been a rollercoaster campaign.
With an ever-growing reputation for their high scoring thrillers, fans around rural Germany have seen each of BVB’s last five matchups across all competitions end with at least five strikes at both ends of the pitch.
While Head Coach Lucien Farve has been vocal about Dortmund’s continued issues at the back, Friday’s home support will be hugely excited by Jadon Sancho’s extended purple patch.
Topping the Bundesliga’s assists chart, the England starlet has also recorded eight goals in his last 10 appearances. You might be interested to know that betting offers like Sancho can be found at 4/5 with Ladbrokes to extend on that tally this week.
Elsewhere, after finding the net in his full debut last weekend following his January switch from Juventus, German international Emre Can will likely retain his spot at the heart of Farve’s midfield.
Eintracht on the rise
Putting in what was another stunning display and picking up a remarkable 5-0 win over Augsburg last weekend, few in Germany would have expected what has been a stellar resurge for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Winning four of their last five, including back-to-back victories over title contenders RB Leipzig, there is no doubt that Adi Hutter’s men will be looking to cause another upset on Friday.
While Dortmund might have a string of attacking stars continuing to shine in the final third, Frankfurt have their own forward enjoying what has been a stellar purple patch.
Bagging yet another brace against Augsburg last week and putting in another Man of the Match display, Filip Kostić has bagged four goals in his last two appearances and should be looking to test what is a fragile BVB defence.
Also finding the net against Leipzig last month, the 27-year-old can be found priced at 3/1 with Ladbrokes to extend on his remarkable run on Friday night.
