Borussia Dortmund will play twice in the span of four days. They will first face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga and then Bayern Munich in the DFL Super Cup on Tuesday.
Marco Rose’s stint as new Borussia Dortmund head coach started well with a 3-0 win against Wehen Wiesbaden in the first round of the DFB Pokal.
Oliver Glasner, on the other hand, had a nightmare start as Eintracht Frankfurt boss. His team were beaten by third-tier side Waldhof Mannheim in the DFB Pokal.
Glasner will hope to actuate a quick change in fortunes, and Eintracht certainly have the players to test Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.
