We Went There: Exclusive Photos as Dortmund Frustrate Frankfurt on Friday

Borussia Dortmund took care of visiting Eintracht Frankfurt with a 3-1 victory on Friday evening, but it was not a quick and simple affair. Both sides had trouble putting efforts on target in the first half, and Frankfurt pulled level with just over 20 minutes to go, but two goals in the final 20 minutes put the black and yellow back on top for good.
New signing Francisco Alcácer put the finishing touches on the game with his thunderbolt from just inside the box. That final goal will give Dortmund fans plenty to look forward to as they played their first of seven games over the next three weeks.
