Borussia Dortmund are looking to return to their winning ways after a 4-3 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen. They host Eintracht Frankfurt at their Signal-Iduna-Park on Friday evening. Favre’s men faced many kinds of issues at the back in the loss to the BayArena outfit. But Lucien Favre’s troops are likely to use their attacking style of play against Frankfurt, and they are supposed to return on course in the Bundesliga. So, Borussia Dortmund are likely to create a significant threat for the guests than their last rivals.
On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt are not considered as good travelers. Despite destroying Augsburg 5-0 at the weekend, Hutter’s troops are unlikely to get any benefits from this clash. Unfortunately for the hosts, Marco Reus is sidelined with an injury.
The hosts are eager to bounce back after losing their last two competitive matches by one goal-margin. Their last five games have now witnessed more than 4.5 goals.
Borussia Dortmund are the only Bundesliga team that have not lost yet at home (seven wins and three draws), and they own the best home attack after scoring an average of 3.6 goals per match. Moreover, Dortmund have netted the opener in seven of their ten Bundesliga matches.
Eintracht Frankfurt are undefeated in their recent five competitive matches (four wins, one draw), and scored the opener in all of their four victories. Ten of their 13 goals they across that period were scored in the second half.
Anyway, the guests are the third worst away team in Bundesliga standings (with two wins, one draw, and seven losses).
Stat attack and Players to watch
Borussia Dortmund: Jadon Sancho was involved in 25 league goals this season. Ten of his 12 goals were netted in the second half.

Frankfurt have netted in both halves in only one of ten away league matches. On the other hand, Frankfurt have lost the last eight H2Hs played here, conceding at least two goals in all of them.
