The fixture’s outcome will have major implications for the title race.

Borussia Dortmund face Eintracht Frankfurt in their next Bundesliga fixture on 22 April 2023 at Signal Iduna Park. The hosts will hope to record three points with a win and stay in contention to win the league title. 

Dortmund are in a title race with FC Bayern Munich and every home fixture from here on out must translate into a victory if the club is to end the campaign with the league title. The visitors on the other hand will be looking to secure points in order to enter one of the European qualification spots, as they sit in seventh position with 42 points in 28 matches.

With heavy stakes on the line, Borussia Dortmund’s clash with Eintracht Frankfurt is set to be exciting, to say the least. Here is what to expect:

Form

Borussia Dortmund (in all competitions): W-L-L-W-D

Eintracht Frankfurt (in all competitions): D-D-W-L-D

Players to Watch

Sebastien Haller (Borussia Dortmund)

Sebastien Haller will lead Borussia Dortmund’s attacking line. The target man is a brilliant finisher and scored in the previous outing against Stuttgart in a 3-3 draw as well. Players like Julian Brandt and others will hope to provide him with good service in the box that will create scoring chances for Haller. The striker has four goals in the league and is hungry to add more before the season ends.

Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Randal Kolo Muani is one of the most lethal strikers in the ongoing season of the Bundesliga. The forward has 13 goals in the league and scored in the previous game as well against Borussia Monchengladbach. His positioning and movement inside the box make him a tricky operator and BVB’s defenders must not give him space to take shots on goal.
