Eintracht Frankfurt vs Dortmund by Sunshine
Eintracht Frankfurt have won away 2:1 against Nurnberg in the previous round last weekend, it was their fourth consecutive victory and they couldn't have dream better start early in the season. They currently occupy the first position together with Bayern Munich with 100% record and are surely the biggest surprise package in first two months.
However, although they have won away to Nurnberg, they didn't look that strong on the pitch as in previous three matches. The hosts were those who looked like controlling the game, but players from Frankfurt acted very smart in the attack, just as they were a bit lucky at some situations in front of the own goal. Perfect start of the season has put their primary target, of staying in the league, aside and they are looking for much more at this moment.
Frankfurt will be without captain defensive midfielder Pirmin Schwegler and striker Olivier Occean who are injured, while long term injured players continue to be without striker Dorge Kouemaha and central defender Martin Amedick who still didn't play a single minute this season.

Dortmund, on the other side, although not playing that bad, already find themselves five points below their biggest rivals for the Bundesliga title - Bayern Munich. They are coming from a 3:2 loss on the road against Hamburger, team that didn't impress so far early in the season.
Everything went bad for them in that game, as they conceded the first goal in the second minute of the game, since that minute, Dortmund was much better side, attacking for the most of the match and when we put aside two goals they have scored - Hamburg's goal was in a constant danger. It was their first defeat after 31 consecutive matches mostly due to big defensive mistakes Dortmund players usually don't make. Defensive midfielder Illkay Gundogan is doubtful in front of this match, while right back Patrick Owomoyela remains sidelined.
Goals are expected in a derby game here in Frankfurt. Dortmund will surely be looking to bounce back with a win after a 3:2 loss away to Hamburg in a game they didn't play bad in offense at all. On the other side, the hosts surely have nothing to lose here and will not be defending either as they have a unique opportunity to stay at the top of the table after the match.
