Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund: Preview | Bundesliga 2020/21


Commerzbank Arena will be the venue for the showdown when Eintracht Frankfurt host Borussia Dortmund in their next game in the 2020/21 German Bundesliga.

The game, which is set to be played on Saturday is very crucial for both clubs but the home side especially considering they are on a seven-game winless run in the league.

Frankfurt last won a game in early October, beating Hoffeinhim by two goals to one at home bur have seen their last seven games result in two defeats and five draws.

Dortmund on the other side this season have lost three league games already, losing to Augsburg, Bayern Munich and Cologne recently.

They however managed a 1-1 draw against Lazio in their last game in the UEFA Champions League game and would be looking forward to getting back to winning ways.

In the last four encounters between Adolf Hutter and Lucien Favre, the former is yet to win a game while the latter has win twice, with the other two ending in draw games.


Venue: Commerzbank Arena
Date: Saturday, December 5
Time: 14:30 GMT


Aymen Bakok and Ragnar Ache remain the only absentees from Hutter’s squad and the manager is likely to make a few changes to the team which played out a disappointing 3-3 draw with Union Berlin last weekend.

Lucien Favre will be unable to count on the services of Mats Hummels and Marcel Schmelzer after the former picked up a foot injury in the one-all draw with Lazio. Erling Braut Haaland is also ruled out for the remainder of the year with a hamstring problem. Thomas Meunier and Reinier Jesus are both doubts for the encounter.


Frankfurt: Trapp; Abraham, Hinteregger, N’Dicka; Durm, Ilsanker, Sow, Kostic; Kamada; Dost, Silva

Dortmund: Burki; Can, Hummels, Akanji; Morey, Witsel, Dahoud, Guerreiro; Sancho, Hazard; Reus


Eintracht Frankfurt 2-3 Borussia Dortmund

Both sides are high scoring teams posing some defensive weaknesses and while Frankfurt would want to take advantage of their enough rest, Dormund would also be hopeful of penetrating through the opposition’s backline often.
