Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt PREVIEW & PREDICTION 14/09/2018

The “yellow” box starts as a favorite due to the local factor and especially because it has very good forward midfield players. For this reason and knowing that you can repeat what was done against Leipzig on the opening date, we believe that the simple triumph of the place is interesting to bet. Remember that the visit is combative but too irregular at the time of marking. He has lost a lot with the departure of coach Niko Kovac.

Borussia Dortmund:

The “yellow” square equaled 0-0 against Hannover as a visitor before the break due to the FIFA date, adding 4 points in the general table. The goal of the team is to become strong at home and not lose track of the leaders of the championship. Of course, is still immersed in a process of renewal, after the departure of several players and the arrival of others. Considering this, we believe that the starters will handle the ball and generate goal situations, standing out by accelerating the pace when necessary.

At home, Borussia Dortmund already played a game so far and the result was positive for their league aspirations (win 4-1 against Leipzig after winning 3-1 in the first half). For this duel, Favre is expected to maintain the 4-3-3 system he used in that presentation, which allowed his boys to be direct and upright when attacking. Of course, it is necessary that the Witsel and Delaney flyers appear, as well as the strikers Pulisic, Philipp and Marco Reus. From the bench could also contribute the Portuguese Raphael Guerreiro and the steering wheel Mario Gotze.

Eintracht Frankfurt:

The present of the team can be classified as irregular, since it added 3 points out of 6 possible. It comes to win 0-2 to Freiburg visiting and falling 1-2 against Werder Bremen at home. Apparently, it remains a competitive and effective team facing the rival goal. Of course, your problem lies in the spaces left when attacking. For this duel is expected that the holders take their precautions, as they will collide against one of the most explosive sets of the German Bundesliga. The logic indicates that they look for the counterattack to score.

Continuing with the analysis you should know that Eintracht Frankfurt is adapting to the departure of coach Niko Kovac, who achieved a great campaign last season and whose present is linked to the powerful Bayern Munich. His goal in the short term is to be more orderly at the time of scoring, as he previously gave 5 goals to the Bavarians in the German Super Cup. If we speak of tactics, the squad is being led by the Austrian Hutter, who is trying to implement a more conservative tactical drawing.

In the last 5 and a half years, Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt have met 7 times in the Signal Iduna Park. These were the results of those matches: victory 2-0 of Dortmund in February 2013, victory 4-0 in February 2014, victory 2-0 of Dortmund in April 2015, victory 4-1 of Dortmund in December 2015, 4-0 win at Dortmund in January 2016 as part of a club friendly, win 3-1 at Dortmund in April 2017 and victory 3-2 at Dortmund in March 2018. Apparently, the local team has a great paternity before his rival, demonstrating it by winning all the games mentioned consecutively.
