PREVIEW | Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head to Head

Having won their last five league games, Bundesliga Pacesetters Bayern Munich will host Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena on Sunday 3rd October. Bayern failed to start the season with a win in their opening match, although they haven’t lost a single game in the Bundesliga this season.

Unsurprisingly, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will go into the match against Frankfurt as the overwhelming favorites, considering that Oliver Glasner’s men haven’t won any game this season. The game will be available for betting at VWin, an Asian sports betting site that helps you make use of European football news by offering odds on matches from all top soccer leagues.

Bayern is currently standing on top of the Bundesliga table with 16 points after six games, while Eintracht is standing 16th with only five points. That explains why Bayern is an overwhelming favorite in this match, bolstered by the confidence of crashing Dynamo Kyiv in the UEFA Champions League match earlier this week.

Bayern vs Eintracht Head to Head Comparison

Eintracht Frankfurt has played against Bayern Munich 100 times in Bundesliga history, losing most of these games. Frankfurt has lost a total of 55 games against Bayern Munich, which is more than they’ve lost against any other team. However, Bayern is the only team that Frankfurt has lost a higher proportion of their Bundesliga matches (55%).

Frankfurt has conceded a total of 203 goals against the Bavarians throughout their matches, which is more than they’ve conceded against any other Bundesliga team. Frankfurt has also conceded more goals per game (2.05) against Bayern than any other team currently in the league. The team last won an encounter with Bayern Munich at home earlier in February, where they managed to end the game 2-1.

Team News and Predicted Lineups

Julian Nagelsmann’s team was strong and composed in their last Bundesliga outing while playing against Greuther Furth. The team recorded a 3-1 win against the bottom team, with Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Mueller being on the scoresheet. However, Benjamin Pavard received a red card, and Bayern will play against Frankfurt without his services.

Sven Ulreich and Corentin Tolisso are the other two absentees in the Bayern Munich team after Kingsley Coman resumed full training after recovering from heart surgery. That gives Julian Nagelsmann plenty of options and he might choose to rest some players as the Bavarians have been burdened by their busy schedule. As such, Jamal Musiala might be starting against Frankfurt, with Robert Lewandoski leading the team’s attack.

Frankfurt, on the other hand, will head to Munich without the injured Erick Durn and Evan Ndicka – also expected to miss their Europa League match against Royal Antwerp on Thursday. However, Glasner believes that his men are capable of scoring in every match.

Bayern vs Frankfurt – Prediction

While Eintracht Frankfurt is anxious to secure their first win this season in all competitions, the champions, Bayern Munich will be waiting for them at home on Sunday. Oliver Glasner’s men also understand that the odds are not stacked in their favor, but the coach believes they can maintain their unbeaten run of six games. However, snapping this winless run against Bayern will be a monumental task. Additionally, Frankfurt has lost their last 12 games in Munich and only earning a single point in their last 16 matches at the Bavarian’s capital.
