Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction & Betting tips
On Friday, 14.09.2018, Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt open the third match day. Both teams started well on the first day with a win in the new season. On the second match day both teams had to let some feathers and could not continue the good entry. In this match, the fourth-placed club preseason and the reigning cup winners compete against each other. At least it sounds like a very exciting game. Whether we will experience this or whether a team will stand out, tries to analyze the betting base as best as possible.
Borussia Dortmund made a start to measure. With 4: 1 they swept the bulls from Leipzig from the square. Even a backlog in the first minute did not put BVB in shock. They kept going and went with a 3-1 in the cabin. In injury time of the second half Marco Reus still managed the 4: 1. All experts agreed that a) Borussia Dortmund showed a great football, but also b) the victory was too high and faked a bit over it, that RB Leipzig played quite good chances.
After the second game against Hannover 96, the joy of the first victory was a bit. At the end there was a lean 0: 0. Dortmund could have won this game. Marco Reus left but two high-profile opportunities and gave the Hanoverians thus a point. The defense of Lucien Favre was very compact and did not allow a shot at Roman Bürki’s goal. Since, as mentioned, the punch was missing and the few opportunities were not used, it was at the end of 0: 0. It would have been more in the opinion of BVB. The draw is not undeserved from the point of view of the Breitenreiter Elf. It can be stated that BVB can tear something this year. However, some construction sites have to be remedied or certain topics should not be boiled at all. Topic number one is efficiency. It runs like a red thread through the last few years that Dortmund in the conclusion needed too many chances to get to the goal.
Second, Favre must manage to keep the balance between offense and defensive in balance. In both games, against Leipzig and Hannover, BVB had less possession than the opponent. This is unusual for such a strong team and sometimes led to the fact that against Hannover in the end no more than a 0: 0 jumped out.
The third theme is the width of the squad. Before the season it was said that the squad must be thinned out. After a few departures but also almost as many new arrivals were taken under contract. This could lead to disagreements within the team. With Götze, Pulisic, Larsen, Weigl, Toprak, Alcacer, Kagawa, Rode, Philipp, Dahoud, Wolf and Guerreiro there are several players who all fight for their seats. The result will be that established forces such as Mario Götze have to stand in the stands. Not to imagine what this means for the team internally but also for the environment of the club. Whichever Elf Favre will play against Frankfurt from the start, BVB will be the clear favorite in this match. Dortmund – Frankfurt sounds at the moment probably more exciting, as it could be the case in truth. How open this game actually is and whether it is worth giving a tip on the BVB or even on the Frankfurt Eintracht is answered in the conclusion.
Betting on Eintracht Frankfurt has been very rewarding in last year’s cup final. So far this season, it does not seem as if this phenomenon could be repeated. For one thing, they had to accept a 0-5 clap at the start of the season in the DFL Supercup against Bayern. On the other hand immediately followed the Cup in the first round against SSV Ulm. Anyone who thought it would make sense to bet against Eintracht was again taught a lesson at the start in Freiburg.
But in turn: Frankfurt started very badly in the new season. Already the preparation was very mixed. They lost 2-0 to FC Empoli and 1: 2 to SPAL. This was followed by the aforementioned Supercup bankruptcy, followed by the DFB Cup out. But then came the 2: 0 Eintracht in the Black Forest Stadium. But a look at the statistics shows that this result was rather flattering. Two shots flew on the opposing goal. Both led to success. Also, the total number of scorers shows a 10: 22 balance against Eintracht.
All this taken together shows a picture of the current weakness of form Frankfurt Eintracht, coupled with a little game luck against SC Freiburg. Consequently, they lost against Werder Bremen, albeit late, with 1: 2. The game between Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt is therefore in a different light than you would expect, if one uses the results of the previous year as a comparison with.
