The men in yellow have improved under Stoger’s watch but the intensity of finishing in the European places makes the result of this game very crucial

Sunday action in the German Bundesliga will see Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt do battle at Signal Iduna Park.

Die Borussen’s hopes of finishing in the Champions League qualification places is under threat. Though they still remain in third place, last week’s 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig sees them tied on the same 42 points with their opponents and could drop down to sixth if Die Rotten Bullen and Bayer Leverkusen win their respective games.

Dortmund are (1.75) with Bet365 to avoid falling further down the log.

Die Adler have been performing above expectations this season. Finding themselves in the Champions League places is a big feat and having lost just once in their last four games, they are quoted at (5.00) with the same betting firm to leapfrog their opponents.

A stalemate as in Dortmund’s previous game is available at (3.60).

Dortmund are yet to lose a Bundesliga game since Peter Stoger took charge, winning five and drawing five and are offered at odds of (1.18) to keep it intact.

However, Frankfurt have claimed 16 points in 2018, second only to Bayern Munich’s tally of 22 points. Punters can back either team to win at (1.29).

Only the Bavarians have conceded less goals than BVB since Stoger took charge. It’s unlikely they keep a clean sheet at odds of (1.44) as the Eagles have been impressive on the road, claiming 30 points so far this term.

Both teams to score is thus priced at (1.70).

Marco Reus has scored four goals in seven apperances since returning from injury last month. The German international is tipped to score at odds of (2.87) anytime in this game with Bet365.
