Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Borussia Dortmund

Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Borussia Dortmund

It’s going to be really interesting at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt on Sunday, because Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Borussia Dortmund in a match from the fifth round of the German Bundesliga.

After selling some of their best players in the summer, Eintracht didn’t start the new campaign in the most consistent way. In four matches played so far, Adi Hutter’s boys won twice and lost twice. Now they are 9th in the standings with 6 points won, so they need to step up a little bit and do something to improve their consistency.

In the previous round Eintracht suffered their second loss for the season. The Europa League semi-finalists travelled to meet Augsburg and got beaten with 1-2. In the second half the Portuguese striker Goncalo Paciencia scored for the visitors, but before this Richter and Niederlechner gave Augsburg a very good advantage in the result.

Few days ago Eintracht Frankfurt had their first game in Europa League as well. They hosted Arsenal at home, but didn’t show nothing and suffered a 0-3 loss.

Borussia Dortmund started the new season with the ambition to win the title and so far they are showing it. They suffered a surprising loss against Union in Berlin, but they won all of the other three games they had.

In the previous round Dortmund hosted Bayer Leverkusen at the Signal Iduna Park and celebrated an exciting 4-0 win. Marco Reus scored a brace for the hosts, while Paco Alcacer and Raphael Guerreiro also scored.

During the week Borussia Dortmund hosted Barcelona in a game from the Champions League group stage. Lucien Favre’s team missed a penalty kick after the halftime break, while the game ended with a 0-0 draw.

Everything could happen in this clash between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund on Sunday. Both teams are pretty ambitious and capable, so a lot of things could happen on the pitch.

Leipzig – Borussia Dortmund

RB Leipzig welcomes Borussia Dortmund in a game from the 18th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this clash on Saturday night in Leipzig.

RB Leipzig continue the fight for a Top 4 finish and another qualification for the Champions League. Right now they are 4th in the standings with 31 points, having 3 points advantage in front of the 5th Wolfsburg. Most surely they’d want to keep this gap, because it gives them some calmness at the moment. Since the beginning of the season, RB Leipzig have a record of 9 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses.

In their last game Ralph Rangnick’s team enjoyed a 3-2 win over Werder Bremen at the Red Bull Arena. Lukas Klostermann, Timo Werner and Bruma scored for the winning team, while Kruse and Sargent’s goals for Werder were not enough for the visiting team.

RB Leipzig really needed this win, because in the previous game they have suffered a defeat from the hands of the champion Bayern Munich.

Borussia Dortmund are once again fighting for the title in the Bundesliga. At this moment Dortmund are leading the standings, having 42 points and 6 points advantage in front of Bayern Munich. The team’s record at the moment shows 13 wins, 3 draws and only one defeat.

In their last game Dortmund enjoyed their 13th win for the season, beating Borussia M’gladbach with 2-1 at home. Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus scored the winners for the home side, while Cristoph Kramer scored M’gladbach’s only goal in the match.

This is a great game at the Red Bull Arena. Borussia Dortmund are leaders in the league and they are fighting for the title, but it won’t be easy for them against RB Leipzig. The home side is one of the strongest teams in the country right now, so Dortmund shall expect a fight here.
