Borussia Dortmund will host Eintracht Frankfurt in this Friday’s German Bundesliga fixture. Eintracht will attempt to extend their undefeated Bundesliga run to five straight games in Friday’s fixture. They will face a tough test versus a Dortmund side who will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 4-3 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen.
Eintracht Frankfurt have been relatively impressive going forward this season, netting a total of 37 goals in their 21 Bundesliga games. This gives them the best goalscoring record for any team currently sitting outside the Bundesliga’s top four. Furthermore, Eintracht have failed to score in just three of their 21 Bundesliga games.
Eintracht have been one of the Bundesliga’s most reliable sides in front of goal in recent weeks. They have scored in each of their last six Bundesliga games. Furthermore, Eintracht have scored a total of 13 goals over the past six Bundesliga games, with only three sides having scored more goals than them in that time.
Eintracht will be encouraged by their recent goalscoring form going into a game versus a Dortmund side who have kept just one clean sheet over the past six Bundesliga games. However, Dortmund will undoubtedly threaten Eintracht at the other end of the pitch, as well.
Dortmund have scored 59 goals in 21 Bundesliga games this term. In addition to that, Friday’s hosts are also currently the Bundesliga’s top home goalscorers. They have scored a total of 36 goals in their 10 Bundesliga home games this season. They have scored three more goals than the second-highest home goalscorers, Bayern Munich.
Similarly to Eintracht, Dortmund have also been impressive going forward over the past six games. Dortmund have actually been the Bundesliga’s highest scoring side in that time, netting 22 goals. They will also be confident against an Eintracht side who have kept just two clean sheets in the past 13 Bundesliga encounters.
Both teams have scored in five of Borussia Dortmund’s last six Bundesliga games. Both teams have scored in six of Eintracht Frankfurt’s last nine Bundesliga games. Borussia Dortmund have scored at least three goals in seven of their last eight Bundesliga games. Eintracht have scored at least one goal in 18 of their last 21 Bundesliga games.
