Friday sees this weekend’s Bundesliga schedule kick off with a bang as Giovanni Reyna and Borussia Dortmund host Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt.
The third-place hosts will try to end a two-match losing run in all competitions, with Reyna hoping to earn his first start for Dortmund. Reyna was a second-half substitute in last weekend’s 4-3 loss to Bayer Leverkusen and could get the nod from Lucien Favre following Marco Reus’ injury. Reyna has one goal to his credit so far this season.
Chandler has scored four goals in his last four appearances for Adolf Hutter’s Frankfurt, netting a brace in last weekend’s 5-0 drubbing of Augsburg. The American veteran has played a key part for the team, helping them to a current five-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
These sides played out a 2-2 draw back in Frankfurt in Sept. 2019.
Elsewhere, Erik Palmer-Brown and Austria Wien return to Bundesliga play in Austria against Rheindorf Altach. Duane Holmes and Derby County take on Huddersfield Town in the EFL Championship while Tim Ream and Fulham look to rebound from a disappointing draw midweek at Millwall. DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United take on Arsenal in a small slate of Premier League fixtures.
