Key top-four clash

Borussia Dortmund take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday in a huge top-four battle in the Bundesliga.

Four points separate the two sides with Frankfurt sitting in pole position with eight games to go.


Dortmund form

Dortmund, who have finished runners-up in the past two seasons, are in real trouble of missing out on Champions League football for next season which will have severe ramifications for the club.

Edin Terzic’s side required a 90th minute goal from Erling Haaland to salvage a 2-2 draw against FC Köln last time out. The Norwegian has scored three braces in his last five games and has 21 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

Dortmund are unbeaten in their last six at home in the Bundesliga (W4, D2).

Team news

Jadon Sancho is still expected to be missing for the Black and Yellows but Giovani Reyna, Raphael Guerreiro and Marco Reus may return.


Eintracht Frankfurt form

Adi Hütter’s men are enjoying a great season and could take a huge step to a top four finish if they beat Dortmund.

They have endured a mini wobble in recent weeks with 2 draws and a defeat from three successive games but they bounced back impressively with a 5-2 hammering of Union Berlin.

This season Frankfurt (47) have already collected more points than in the entirety of last season (45). The 2020/21 points return after 26 matches is the best-ever in Frankfurt’s Bundesliga history.

Andre Silva has slightly gone under the radar, compared to Haaland. The Portuguese forward has 21 goals this season, the same amount as the 20-year-old.

Team news

Captain Makoto Hasebe will be missing for the visitors through suspension while Hütter will have to decide between starting Luka Jovic or bringing back Amir Younes.


Head-to-head

BVB have won their last nine home games against Eintracht Frankfurt. The reverse game ended as a 1-1 draw.
