Fortuna Dusseldorf made a dismal start to the campaign but have seen a dramatic turnaround in fortunes in recent months. Three home wins in their previous four outings include a victory over Dortmund, and they're 17/10 (2.70) to come out on top here.
Eintracht Frankfurt are narrow favourites at 7/5 (2.40) and on the balance of their season-long performance that's understandable. There’s a quick turnaround in store for Adi Hutter’s men, who have a Europa League clash with Inter on Thursday.
The visitors sit on the cusp of another European place in sixth and have taken 19 points from 12 away games this term. Three of their previous four road trips have ended all square and the draw is priced at 5/2 (3.50) with 888Sport.
With the hosts in fine form it looks tough to call the match odds with any degree of certainty, but goals appeal in what has the potential to be a high-scoring shootout.
Both teams to score is just 11/20 (1.55) which demonstrates how much the respective defences have on their hands in this clash.
Frankfurt won the reverse fixture 7-1 in October and the previous three head-to-head meetings have all contained at least four goals. A repeat on Monday is 7/4 (2.75) and looks a solid selection.
Those wanting a safety net can get 23/20 (2.15) on Over 3 goals on 888Sport's Asian goal line. This selection sees stakes returned if the game contains three goals while still offering a tasty price on four or more.
Nine of Dusseldorf's 12 home league games this season have seen three or more goals scored and that includes each of the six matches against teams currently ranked in the top 10.
Frankfurt boast plenty of firepower but with just two clean sheets in their last 13 Bundesliga games, punters could profit from another end-to-end encounter.
