Eintracht Frankfurt dictated the play (57% possession), registered more than twice as many shots as BVB (20-8) and could have won based on the quality of the chances too (xGoals: 2.30-0.73). But the Black & Yellows converted their chances and once again showed the ruthlessness they had been lacking in previous weeks: Kevin Trapp only faced two shots at his goal, and both found the back of the net. The match facts.

Creative: Borussia have scored 19 of their 20 goals this season from open play (only one set-piece goal).

Safe hands: Only once this season – the 3-1 victory in Freiburg on Matchday 2 – has Gregor Kobel saved as many shots as today (six on both occasions).

Goal threat from deep: With three Bundesliga goals this season – all scored in the last two games – Jude Bellingham has already equalled his personal record from last season. On top of that, he has found the net two times in the DFB-Pokal and four times in the UEFA Champions League. 09 goals in total.

1-0 specialist: Julian Brandt has scored three Bundesliga goals this season, each of them to make it 1-0.

Landmark: Substitute Anthony Modeste was making his 200th Bundesliga appearance. After Franck Ribery and Jonathan Schmid, Modeste is the third Frenchman to reach this landmark.

Away curse ended: After defeats away to Union Berlin, Cologne and Leipzig, Borussia have won on the road for the first time since the end of August (1-0 away to Hertha).

Favourite foe: BVB have beaten Eintracht more times in the Bundesliga than any other club (48). Borussia are now unbeaten on the Main in seven years (four draws and, most recently, two away wins).

Bogey team: Oliver Glasner also lost his seventh Bundesliga meeting with Borussia Dortmund; only Andre Breitenreiter has faced one opponent more often as a coach without picking up a point (eight games against Bayern).

Energetic ex-player: Mario Götze covered a greater distance than any other player (12.0km); he also registered two shots, three assists and was involved in the second-most challenges of any player (28, of which he won 57%).
