Borussia Dortmund would be keen to get off their current bad run of form that has seen them lose their last two games, but they face a very in-form Eintracht Frankfurt side that seems to be on the ascendency.
Eintracht Frankfurt has enjoyed some scalp in recent weeks after beating RB Leipzig in two consecutive games, they would feel that they can beat just about anyone.
Dortmund hasn’t been struggling to score but their problems seems to be at the back and Lucien Favre would be looking to get his team defending better else they would lose this game as well.
Frankfurt beat Augsburg 5-0 in their last game and they come here full of confidence, this game promises to be an exciting one.
Marco Reus has been ruled out of this game for the hosts.
Gelson Fernandes, Marco Russ, Lucas Torro and Bas Dost would miss this game for the visitors.

Dortmund remains the only side not to lose at home in the league this season and they have scored an amazing 3.6 average goals per home game this season.
Eintracht Frankfurt is a team in form as they have won four and lost none of their last five competitive games ahead of this match.
