Borussia Dortmund finished last season in great form and can pick up where they left off by beating Eintracht Frankfurt in their Bundesliga opener.
Both teams have had managerial changes and the hosts look to have adjusted better, judged on last weekend’s 3-0 cup victory at Wehen-Wiesbaden.
Their opponents were upset 2-0 by SV Waldhof Mannheim in that knockout competition and could need more time.
We’re taking 11/10 for the black and yellows to lead at half-time and full-time for our first Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt prediction.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
Dortmund got off to a shaky start last term, leading to the departure of Lucien Favre, and looked set to miss out on Champions League football at one point.
However, they closed with seven straight Bundesliga wins to end up third and crushed RB Leipzig 4-1 in the German Cup final.
Erling Haaland was the star performer with 41 goals in as many games and he hit a hat-trick in this season’s cup opener.
Jadon Sancho was sold off to Manchester United but Netherlands forward Donyell Malen seems a decent replacement.
Swiss goalkeeper Gregor Kobel comes in from Stuttgart and Marco Rose is the manager tasked with trying to challenge Bayern Munich for title glory.
The 44-year-old led Borussia Monchengladbach to the Champions League knockout stages last season and previously impressed with Red Bull Salzburg.
Former Germany front man Marco Reus enjoyed a resurgence late on last term, netting in seven of 11 appearances.
Looking at the Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt odds, we like 13/5 for the club stalwart to score in a home victory.
A Look At Eintracht Frankfurt’s Betting Odds
Eintracht Frankfurt faltered late on in their quest for a top-four finish, picking up just seven points in their closing six games to slip to fifth.
Andre Silva impressed with 28 Bundesliga goals, trailing only Robert Lewandowski in the scoring charts, but has since switched to RB Leipzig.
Adi Hutter has also jumped ship to Borussia Monchengladbach, with Oliver Glasner arriving from Wolfsburg.
Colombian striker Rafael Santos Borre, teenage Spanish winger Fabio Blanco and 21-year-old attacking midfielder Jesper Lindstrom are among the new signings.
Frankfurt have a reputation for being unpredictable but the feeling is that this could be a transitional period.
Going out of the cup to third division Waldhof Mannheim backed up the view that it may take time for all the fresh faces to gel.
Let’s finish off our Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt betting tips by taking 19/2 for a 3-1 home win.
