Bayern München vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match Preview & Prediction
The Bundesliga became the first major football league to resume action in the 2019-20 season. Last weekend’s games marked a much needed return following a coronavirus forced hiatus. Though a lot has changed in and around the stadium, certainly the lack of fans playing its part somewhat, the result remained the same for league leaders Bayern on the pitch. Hansi Flick’s side recorded a 2-0 away win over Union Berlin. Top scorer Robert Lewandowski scored his 26th goal of the season before Benjamin Pavard scored the 50th Bayern goal under Flick in the league this season, the best record of any coach in the league’s history after 16 games.
In this weekend’s fixture, the Bavarians host Eintracht Frankfurt who were condemned to their fourth Bundesliga loss in a row after going down 3-1 to Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend. That defeat sees Frankfurt hovering in mid table and they must view this as an opportunity to put last weekend’s result behind them however Herculean of a task that might seem. All things being equal, Bayern Munich are the outright favourites in the fixture, especially with the match taking place at the Allianz Arena.
Predicted Bayern XI: Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Coman, Muller, Perisic; Lewandowski
Predicted Eintracht XI: Trapp; Toure, Abraham, Hinteregger, N’Dicka; Ilsanker, Rode; Chandler, Kamada, Kostic; Dost
Bayern München vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head To Head
The last two meetings between these sides have both coincidentally ended 5-1, with these two teams splitting the victories.
Surprisingly, in their previous meeting this season, it was Frankfurt who humbled the mighty Bavarians at home back in November. This also proved to be the last game in charge for previous manager Niko Kovac.
Bayern Munich have won each of their last 10 Bundesliga home games against Frankfurt – their longest winning run at home to any current top-flight side. On the other hand, the visitors are the weakest team away from home in the Bundesliga this season, picking up just seven points.
