Borussia Dortmund will be looking to get their charge for the Bundesliga title back on track this weekend as they take on Eintracht Frankfurt.

Still reeling from their 3-3 draw against 10-man Stuttgart, Borussia Dortmund face another tough test in the Bundesliga this weekend as they go up against Eintracht Frankfurt. Edin Terzic will be hoping for a much improved performances from his players, who were made to pay heavily for their chaotic defending last weekend.

Borussia Dortmund are still only two points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga standings. But with just six games left before the end of the season, the pressure is on the Black and Yellows as they look to claw their way past the defending champions.

BVB may be forced to field a makeshift defence once again on Saturday, with Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle both doubts. Mats Hummels should be available after being forced off against Stuttgart. Emre Can will likely partner Hummels in defence if Süle and Schlotterbeck are not able to recover in time from their injuries.

We aren’t likely to see too many changes to the rest of the team. Marius Wolf and Mahmoud Dahoud will both be hoping to feature after being left on the bench last weekend.

Eintracht Frankfurt will be without Kristijan Jakic, Philipp Max and Hrvoje Smolcic on Saturday evening. Evan Ndicka and Almamy Toure are both doubts. Ansgar Knauff looks set to start against his parent club.

Randal Kolo Muani will be aiming to keep his excellent run of form going against the struggling Borussia Dortmund defence. The Frenchman has 20 goals and 14 assists to his name for the Eagles this season.
