Borussia Dortmund-Eintracht Frankfurt Preview: Champions hoping to bounce back from Hamburg loss

Borussia Dortmund-Eintracht Frankfurt Preview: Champions hoping to bounce back from Hamburg loss

Bongarts

Jurgen Klopp's troops recorded an encouraging 2-2 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek, and will be hoping for another positive result against the top-four hopefuls

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

DORTMUND

Weidenfeller
Piszczek, Santana, Hummels, Schmelzer
Gundogan, Bender

Blaszczykowski, Gotze, Reus
Schieber
FRANKFURT

Trapp
Jung, Zambrano, Anderson, Oczipka
Rode, Schwegler
Aigner, Meier, Inui
Lakic


Jurgen Klopp will be able to welcome Ilkay Gundogan back into the starting line-up after the Germany international sat out his side's 2-2 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. He should come into the team at the expense of Sebastian Kehl.

Neven Subotic is in line for a return to the fold after over a month out with a hamstring injury, but Felipe Santana could continue in his place. Finally, Julian Schieber will make a rare start up front in place of the suspended Robert Lewandowski.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, will be able to name a full-strength line-up for the trip to Signal Iduna Park, with only Martin Amedick set to miss out as he looks to build up fitness.
