Team News: Eintracht Frankfurt
Kristijan Jakic (Bruised Hip), Danny da Costa (Corona virus), Jens Petter Hauge (Muscle Injury), Christopher Lenz (Calf Injury) and Jesper Lindström (Corona virus) won’t be available for Eintracht Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner.
We are thinking that Eintracht look set to use the 3-4-1-2 formation for this game, utilising Kevin Trapp, Tuta, Martin Hinteregger, Evan N'Dicka, Timothy Chandler, Sebastian Rode, Djibril Sow, Filip Kostic, Daichi Kamada, Rafael Santos Borre and Goncalo Paciencia.

Borussia Dortmund boss Marco Rose has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Dan-Axel Zagadou (Corona virus), Marius Wolf (Corona virus), Youssoufa Moukoko (Torn Muscle Fibre), Manuel Akanji (Knee Surgery), Marcel Schmelzer (Knee Surgery), Giovanni Reyna (Fitness), Luca Unbehaun (Hand Injury) and Mateu Morey Bauzà (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be making appearances.
It’s our belief that Dortmund appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with Gregor Kobel, Thomas Meunier, Marin Pongracic, Mats Hummels, Raphael Guerreiro, Jude Bellingham, Mahmoud Dahoud, Julian Brandt, Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard and Erling Braut Haaland.
We envisage that Eintracht Frankfurt must be fancied to get a goal against this Borussia Dortmund outfit, but a single goal might not be enough to avoid defeat.
We can see a 1-2 win for Borussia Dortmund when all is said and done. Should be an interesting one.
