Eintracht Frankfurt will be hoping to continue their push for the top six when they welcome Dortmund to the Deutsche Bank Park this Sunday for what should be an entertaining encounter. The Eagles ended their woeful run of 14 matches without an away victory with an emphatic 3-1 comeback victory at Hoffenheim last time out to move to within two points of the top six. Frankfurt will be hoping to carry some of that morale into this game but they are alive to the fact that the visitors are in a great run of form themselves and they will have to bring their A-game if they are to get anything out of this game.
Borussia Dortmund have turned on the turbo in recent weeks to pile pressure on the teams ahead of them at the summit of the table. An impressive run of 5 straight league wins has seen them climb up to 4th, tied on 20 points with 3rd placed Bayern Munich and just two shy of league leaders Leverkusen. BVB carried this momentum into the Champions League in midweek as they picked up an impressive 1-0 win away at Newcastle to move off the bottom of Group F after starting the campaign with a couple of dour goalless draws.
Something has to give here. Whereas the home side have been quite solid in their backyard, it is impossible to ignore Dortmund’s form coming into this match. We fancy an open-ended encounter with both teams throwing everything including the kitchen sink at each other here as they try to pick up the win. Goals have been a common feature in this fixture. With this in mind, we are backing at least 3 goals to be scored here as our main Frankfurt vs Dortmund prediction

Main tip: Over 2.5 Goals
Our Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Over 2.5 Goals
This fixture has been a goalfest in recent seasons. 8 of the last 10 H2H encounters between these teams have witnessed at least 3 goals, including the last 5 straight meetings.
Frankfurt have been prolific in front of goal at home, scoring two or more in 4 of their last 6 home games. Conversely, the visitors have also been outstanding on their travels. They scored 3 goals at Hoffenheim and 4 at Freiburg before that in their previous two away league assignments.
We fancy both teams to maintain their respective trajectories and as such we can expect another goal-laden game here which is why we are backing at least 3 goals to be scored here with great odds for this option offered at 1xBet

Prediction 2: Dortmund Win
Borussia Dortmund have racked up five wins on the trot on the domestic front to move within touching distance of the league leaders. Depending on how other games play out they could be top of the table or within top 3 by the end of the weekend if they pick up the win here.
BVB have dominated recent meetings with Frankfurt sweeping both home and away league encounters in the last two straight seasons. Frankfurt have also been shaky, with three losses in their last 5 matches. Going by this and combining it with their current form, we feel there is value in picking Dortmund to win this game and we recommend very competitive odds for this option available at Paripesa.

Prediction 3: Frankfurt Over 2.5 Bookings
With Dortmund likely to be the aggressor here as they try and keep pace with the league leaders, the home side will be under tremendous pressure for the better part of this game.
