Bayern Munich – Eintracht Frankfurt
Bayern Munich faces Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena in a fixture from the 5th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s take a good look at this game in the Bavarian capital.
Bayern Munich are just one point behind the leader RB Leipzig currently being second in the standings. The champions have 9 points won so far and a record of three wins and one loss. Since their defeat against Hoffenheim Bayern won two consecutive times in the Bundesliga.
During the week the treble winners won their first game in the Champions League, too. And it was an impressive one. The Bavarian giants hosted Atletico Madrid in Munich and rocked the Spanish team with an exciting 4-0 win. Kingsley Coman was the man of the match as he scored twice for Bayern and made an assist to Leon Goretzka. The French midfielder Corentin Tolisso scored one as well.
We expect to see Alphonso Davies and Javi Martinez returning to the starting eleven. Both players started from the bench against Atletico, so most likely Hansi Flick will be making some rotations.
Eintracht Frankfurt approach this visit to Munich from 4th place in the Bundesliga standings. Marco Rose’s team had a good start of the new season as they have won 8 points so far. This is better than the way Eintracht have started the previous season.
In their last match Eintracht made a draw – their second for the season. They paid a visit to Koln and even opened the score with a goal from Andre Silva. Duda equalised for the Billy Goats after the halftime break, though.
Bayern Munich are complete favourites against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena. The manager Hansi Flick could refresh his line-up with some rotations after the Champions League game against Atletico Madrid. For Eintracht on the other side every kind of result, different from the loss, would be success.
