Dortmund: D-W-W-L–D


Frankfurt ensured their chances of progressing to the next round of the UEFA Champions League remained intact when they beat Marseille last time out.

Goals from Daichi Kamada and Randal Kolo Muani ensured the hosts took home maximum points for a fourth consecutive game in all competitions.

Their attention will now switch back to the Bundesliga, with a clash with fellow top-four contenders Dortmund, which could end with the hosts starting November four points clear of BVB in the UCL qualification zone. The Eagles currently sit in fourth place, one point ahead of Dortmund having won six of their opening eleven league games of the season (D2, L3).

While success may not come easy for Frankfurt who have lost three of their last five meetings with BVB, they will be boosted by a return to their home ground where they have won three of their last five starts, following August’s 6-1 drubbing against Bayern (D1, L1).

That trio of triumphs all saw Oliver Glasner’s men saw 2+ goals, with a 5-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen being the biggest of all.

Possible Frankfurt starting line-up

Kevin Trapp; Almamy Toure, Kristijan Jakic, Evan NDicka; Eric Ebimbe, Djibril Sow, Daichi Kamada, Christopher Lenz; Mario Götze, Jesper Lindstrom; Randal Kolo Muani.

Borussia Dortmund

After a memorable outing in the Champions League last Tuesday, Borussia Dortmund will turn their attention to recovering from a floundering Bundesliga season when they visit Deutsche Bank Park on Saturday.

The visitors secured progression to the UCL knockouts during the week after holding Premier League heavyweights Manchester City to a goalless draw at the Signal Iduna Park, with Gregor Kobel’s first penalty save in 11 months being the big highlight.

The goalkeeper may be crucial this time with Dortmund at risk of finishing October outside the top six – something they have not endured since the 2014/15 season under Jurgen Klopp when they suffered a decade-worst finish of seventh place.

That forgettable campaign still marks Die Borussen’s latest run of four straight Bundesliga away losses, but they risk matching it here having suffered three consecutive away league losses to Union Berlin (2-0), FC Koln (3-2) and RB Leipzig (3-0).

However, they have fond memories of this fixture last season as they came from 2-0 down at half-time to win 3-2. They will hope that they can put on that kind of performance this weekend as they fight to get back to the top four and ultimately the title race.

Possible Dortmund starting line-up

Gregor Kobel; Marius Wolf, Mats Hummels, Nico Schlotterbeck, Marius Wolf; Jude Bellingham, Salih Ozcan; Karim Adeyemi, Donyell Malen, Julian Brandt; Anthony Modeste.

Injured: Sebastian Haller, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Mahmoud Dahoud, Thomas Munier, Marco Reus

Doubtful: Raphael Guerreiro

Suspended: None
