Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – 2016/17 DFB Pokal Final
Date: Saturday, 27th May 2017
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin.
Borussia Dortmund will have the chance to save the season with a DFB Pokal trophy.
BVB will tackle out-of-form Eintracht Frankfurt in the Saturday’s final at Olympiastadion in Berlin.
Niko Kovac can be much happier with the first part of the season when Eintracht were genuine candidates for the Champions League spots.
However, the team from Commerzbank-Arena dropped in form in the second part of the season to end the Bundesliga campaign at the 11th position.
Eintracht had a pretty easy way during the journey to the final in the capital. The toughest of the obstacles has been Borussia Monchengladbach in the semifinal when Kovac’s men secured the final after penalty shootout.
Thomas Tuchel can be lucky to sit on Borussia’s bench after a dismal campaign in both Bundesliga and Champions League.
The team did slightly increase the form in the finish of the season when Dortmund won four and drew two of their last six fixtures.
The team, however, showed the best performance in 2017 in the semifinal of DFB Pokal when they came back from behind to eliminate Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund: Head to head
BVB have been much more successful in the history of head to head meetings with Eintracht Freankfurt.
Eintracht did manage to claim two wins in their last two games at Commerzbank-Arena, but Dortmund got the revenge in mid-April at Signal-Iduna-Park by taking a 3-1 win.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
The bookmakers have seriously underestimated Frankfurt here pricing them at 11/4 to lift the trophy.
We don’t see the value in backing Dortmund to win the match in 90 minutes at 2/5. This is why we will take the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet as the top betting option at 6/5 odds.
