Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund

Two games without a win, and could this be the onset of a crisis for Borussia Dortmund? Just kidding. Not many can really live without them when the Yellow & Black Brigade is on full blast. However, Dortmund could start French youngster Dan-Axel Zagadou in central defence following the suspension of Sokratis and Omer Toprak suffering an injury.

Dortmund could be knocked off the perch for the first time this season should they fail to win in Frankfurt. For the past seven meetings, the home side have always won.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang loves to go up against Frankfurt, having scored six goals in eight outings against them.

Frankfurt still have a length injury list, but will be hoping to recover Gelson Fernandes and Jonathan de Guzman in due course, even if the Dortmund game may come too soon for the midfield duo. Simon Falette remains suspended, meaning Makoto Hasebe is likely to slot into central defence.
