Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund square off against each other at Deutsche Bank Park on day 12 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Adler have been in a fine form of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they must be high on confidence following back-to-back wins over Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia M’gladbach. Since the hosts are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we predict that they will find the net in Saturday’s showdown.
There are no fresh injury worries in the home team. Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 5-0 victory over Stuttgart, and given their attacking potential, punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Salih Ozcan is back from the Champions League ban, while all Meunier, Morey Bauza, and Dahoud should miss out with injuries. Experienced forward Marco Reus is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Mario Gotze):
Mario Gotze is a German midfielder, who played for Ronsberg and Eintrach Hombruch during his youth career before joining Borussia Dortmund in 2001. He made a great progress during his spell at the Borussia Dortmund’s youth academy and on 21 November, 2009 he made his Bundesliga debut for the Millionaires.
Gotze scored 22 goals in 83 league appearances for the club between 2009 and 2013 and he joined Borussia Dortmund’s bitterest rivals Bayern Munich on April, 2013. The German midfielder, who is capable of playing as a striker as well, failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, but it has to be noted that he was struggling with injury at the start of the season.
Gotze won three Bundesliga trophies with Bayern Munich, but at the end of the 2015/2016 season he returned to Borussia Dortmund. In 2014 he represented Germany at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and he scored the winner in the final against Argentina. Mario Gotze was born in Memmingen on 3 June, 1992.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football.
Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times.
However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
