Bundesliga: SGE vs BVB

Frankfurt vs Dortmund

With 18 points in hand, Dortmund is ranked 4th in the Bundesliga 2020/21 standings after 9 rounds, 4 points behind the "great rival" that ranks at the top of Bayern Munich.  In this 10th round, teachers and students Lucien Favre can shorten the gap if they beat Frankfurt because Bayern Munich have to fight with RB Leipzig who is ranked second.

In all respects, Dortmund have proved to be quite Eintracht Frankfurt.  Even in terms of confrontation, the Ruhr team is unbeaten in the 7 closest clashes between the two sides in the Bundesliga (winning 4).

However, this match, the yellow - black shirt team suffered a great loss in force when the main striker Erling Haaland was absent due to injury (even the striker had to stop playing until the end of 2020).  That is not to mention some other faces that are still recovering or have just recovered, leaving the possibility of playing open.

In the middle of last week, Dortmund officially won a ticket to the 1/8 Champions League round after a 1-1 draw with Lazio, but clearly the team's physical strength was significantly damaged.  At the Bundesliga playground, they also lost 2/3 of the last round.

Compared to Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt's performance was worse: 12 points in 9 rounds.  However, in reality, they just once had to fall into nothing (draw up to 6).  Eintracht Frankfurt's only defeat from the start of the season was against defending champions Bayern Munich on the opponent's field (0-5).

In other words, Frankfurt may be difficult to win, but it is not easy to beat this opponent.  The last 6 home matches in the Bundesliga, Frankfurt are unbeaten (3 wins).

Therefore, in front of rivals Dortmund who are not in good shape, losing No. 1 star Haaland, Eintracht Frankfurt can trust to win at least 1 point at home.  Remember, the last 6 performances to welcome Dortmund at the Bundesliga, they did not once have to lose (win 3).
