Head to Head
The Black and Yellows have the edge in recent meetings between the two sides. Borussia Dortmund have won 5 of their last 10 meetings against Frankfurt, while 2 games have ended in draws. Last season, Dortmund won 3-1 at home and drew 1-1 away.
Key Player to Watch Out for
Jadon Sancho will pull the strings for Borussia Dortmund once again. The Englishman started the season with a bang, racking up 2 goals and 5 assists so far from the first 4 games. He will be looking to add to his tally when he takes on Frankfurt and the hosts could have a tough time stopping him in his tracks.
The Eagles’s 100% home record in the Bundesliga is expected to come to an end on Sunday, as they are unlikely to be able to withstand Dortmund's firepower.
Predicted Score: Eintracht Frankfurt 1-2 Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund win – 1.75
