Already missing Marco Reus Borussia Dortmund take on Eintracht Frankfurt without star man Julian Brandt as well who is out with an ankle injury.
Borussia Dortmund are coming off two bad defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen in the past week and a half that has them crashing back down to earth. In both defeats they lost key players, Marco Reus picked up an injury against Werder Bremen and Julian Brandt exited against his former side Borussia Dortmund.
Those are two key players that Dortmund will be forced to do without in this one and it will be interesting to see what Favre does to adapt. Could we see Mario Gotze coming out of hiding? Likely not, but we should see Thorgan Hazard draw back into the starting lineup.
Eintracht Frankfurt are in scintillating form winning four of their last five outings, including two wins against RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. Over those 5 games they have scored 13 goals and only conceded three times.
Felix Kostic is in insane form at the moment, Dortmund will need to be on high alert with the pacey Frankfurt winger on the pitch. They have pulled themselves up the table significantly after an underwhelming first half of the season and now sit on 28 points through 21 games.
