Borussia Dortmund travels to Frankfurt this weekend to take on hosts Eintracht Frankfurt, as the German Bundesliga 2021-22 continues after the winter break.
Borussia Dortmund has played well this season but is no match against table-toppers Bayern Munich. Dortmund is at the second spot with 34 points, and a good 7 points behind the toppers. With a slim chance of finishing on top, Dortmund would still like to extend its 5 point lead over third-placed Freiburg by picking up three points.
Eintracht Frankfurt, which is at 6th place with 27 points, has a lot more at stake in this game. A draw will provide a one-point separation from 7th placed Union Berlin, which also has 27 points, while a victory will catapult it directly to the 3rd spot, ahead of Freiburg.
Under the new coach Marco Rose, Dortmund had a great start to the season, winning 8 out of the first 10 games it played, but seem to have lost its way going into the break, and has won just 1 out of its last 4. On the other hand, Frankfurt has picked up pace after a mediocre start. The team has won 6 out of the last 7 fixtures before the break.
Match prediction and betting tips for Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund. Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt, on the 8th of January, 2022.
Dortmund ended the first half after a 2-3 loss against Hertha and will be looking to make a winning start to the second half if they want to have any hope of catching up with Bayern Munich. Marco Rose is likely to face some selection problems, as Marcel Schmelzer and Morey Bauza are recovering from knee surgery and ligament injury respectively. Luca Unbehaum, Manuel Akanji, Giovanni Reyna, and Moukoko too won’t be available.
As for Frankfurt, Kristijan Jakic and Cristopher Lenz will most likely be missing the game due to injuries, while goalkeeper Jens Grahl is doubtful too, after testing positive for the coronavirus. Goncalo Paciencia and Martin Hintereggers will be serving their suspensions.
Dortmund will likely approach this game with attacking intent and will be looking to get an early lead. For this, the team will be heavily reliant on Erling Haaland, who has scored 13 goals in the league this season. Frankfurt will put up a hard fight on its home turf, but we expect Dortmund to pick up three crucial points.
Bet on a Dortmund win.
Borussia Dortmund has the second-most goals this season after Bayern Munich. It has been spectacular at creating and converting chances and while Erling Haaland is the center of attention, he is not the only attacking genius they have in their midst. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in four out of the previous five matches and we are happy to bet on the same happening tis time around.
