Sports Innovation previews the Bundesliga match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
After a poor end to 2021, Borussia Dortmund hope to start the new year off by getting their title challenge back on track in Saturday’s visit to Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Eagles, though, could prove tough to break down. They finished 2021 on a high by winning their last three games, moving them up to sixth place in the Bundesliga table. They’re also unbeaten in 26 of their last 27 home league games (W15 D11 L1).
Dortmund, meanwhile, head to Germany’s financial capital with just one win in their last four league matches (D1 L2). The dip in form has cost valuable ground in the title race, although Bayern Munich’s defeat on Friday has given them a chance to close to within six points of the Bundesliga leaders.
