Borussia Dortmund are about to host Eintracht Frankfurt at the Signal Iduna Park determined to extend an outstanding 8-game winning streak at home over the Eagles.
The Black and Yellows have opened the new Bundesliga season with a commanding 4-1 victory over RB Leipzig in front of the home crowd after coming back from a goal down before playing out an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Hannover on the road. During the international break, Lucien Favre’s side have swept the lower-league team Osnabruck aside with a devastating 6-0 win in a friendly match, and the former Nice boss hopes his players can maintain an impressive scoring record in the championship.
Meanwhile, the new Die Adler manager Adi Hütter kicked off his Bundesliga adventure with a 2-0 away triumph over Freiburg before losing to Werder Bremen at home by two goals to one. However, Hütter’s job is on the line as Frankfurt already suffered DFB Pokal elimination by a low-profile outfit Ulm and got hammered by Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup Final by a considerable 5-goal margin. Now, in the last five encounters with Dortmund, Launische Diva failed to keep a clean sheet, with the North Rhine-Westphalia-based club scoring at least two goals in last four meetings, and the Austrian chief of staff will have to come up with something special if looking to avoid an early farewell.
Ömer Toprak is the only injured player in the home team, while Timothy Chandler, Carlos Salcedo, Ante Rebic, Mijat Gacinovic, and Jetro Willems won’t be available for the visitors.
