Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to lay down an early marker when they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Westfalenstadion for their opening Bundesliga clash on Saturday.
After looking well adrift of Champions League qualification at one stage last season, Dortmund eventually secured third place thanks to a run of seven wins from the final seven league matches.
Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt latest odds
Hoping to mount a serious title challenge against a Bayern Munich team that finished 14 points ahead last campaign, Borussia Dortmund are available at 2/5 (1.40) with bet365 to get off to a strong start by coming out on top.
Having foregone Champions League football with Wolfsburg in order to take over at the Waldstadion this summer, Oliver Glasner is priced at 5/1 (6.00) to reap immediate rewards by overseeing an impressive victory for Eintracht Frankfurt here.
Three of the last five encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 9/2 (5.50) available on them cancelling each other out once again.

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt preview
With so many defensive players missing due to injury, lack of fitness, or Covid-19, Marco Rose’s new side will be relieved that Andre Silva is not lining up against them after leaving Frankfurt for RB Leipzig following his 28-goal Bundesliga haul last season.
Nevertheless, Frankfurt will still fancy their chances of causing problems up front after scoring at least once in 10 of their last 11 meetings with this opposition, running out 2-1 winners on their last trip to this ground back in April.
Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions
However, given the visitors ended the last campaign by conceding 11 times in their last three league away games, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem like decent value on over 3.5 goals being scored for Dortmund’s sixth league game in eight.
