One of the most attractive looking matches for punters on Friday night comes courtesy of the Bundesliga.
Borussia Dortmund got their season off to a flying start with a 4-1 demolition of RB Leipzig and will be hoping their return to home turf yields a similar result against Frankfurt.
888Sport make the home side 7/17 (1.41) to record another win while the visitors are available at 6/1 (7.0) outsiders in what looks a very tricky assignment. The draw is priced at 37/10 (4.70) although only four league matches at this ground ended all square last season.
Lucien Favre has taken over at Dortmund but the new coach will still expect his side to have an attack-minded, free-flowing approach. That should ensure that goals flow freely as far as Die Schwarzgelben are concerned.
Last season Dortmund finished in a somewhat disappointing fourth place. They had the third best attack in Germany's top flight but had only the 10th best defensive record, conceding 47 goals in 34 league games.
Despite finishing four places lower in the table, Frankfurt only leaked 45 goals but managed the same amount in the final third of the pitch. Given those kind of statistics, it's no surprise to see both teams to score at just 11/17 (1.65) with 888Sport.
That might appeal to some but those seeking more value should back Dortmund to win the game and both teams to find the net at 17/10 (2.70) with the same firm.
While their performances at home weren't always perfect, the hosts still picked up nine wins at this venue last season and their opening win shows how dominant they can be. However, Frankfurt are more than capable of making their mark, even against the better sides in the division.
Adi Hutter's side lost six of their seven trips to teams to finished above them last term. They did score in five of those though, including a 3-2 defeat in this exact fixture.
Dortmund’s defence is tough to trust but they should have more than enough firepower to pick up three points for the second time in two home games this season.
