Dortmund aims to bounce back vs in-form Frankfurt


BERLIN (AP) -Borussia Dortmund aims to bounce back from its first Bundesliga loss in just over a year when the defending champion visits high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday.

Dortmund's 31-game unbeaten streak came to a halt on Saturday with Hamburg's first win, and Juergen Klopp's side already finds itself five points behind pacesetting Bayern Munich.

Frankfurt, in contrast, set a Bundesliga record by becoming the first promoted side to win its opening four games.

Bayern - enjoying its best ever start to the league on the back of a seven-game winning streak across all competitions - hosts misfiring Wolfsburg.

Also Tuesday, Schalke host Mainz and Fortuna Duesseldorf visits Greuther Fuerth.

On Wednesday, it's: Borussia Moenchengladbach vs. Hamburger SV, Stuttgart vs. Hoffenheim, Hannover vs. Nuremberg, Freiburg vs. Werder Bremen and Augsburg vs. Bayer Leverkusen.
