Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
The demolishing 0-3 defeat to Hertha BSC came out of nowhere for Eintracht Frankfurt who fell down to seventh in the Bundesliga ladder. The Eagles were even genuine contenders for the Champions League football next season at some point, but they took just one point from last there league ties, a streak which got them out of such challenge.
Saturday’s visit to Allianz Arena will be especially interesting for Niko Kovac who will take over Jupp Heynckes on the bench of the Bavarian giants next term. These two likes are also about to take on each other in the DFB Pokal final in May, but this league clash should have nothing in common to that final given Bayern will likely line up the reserve squad here, having already secured the new silverware in Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich won three and drew one of last four head to head games against Eintracht Frankfurt and they kept a clean sheet in each of these three wins.
At home, the Bavarians won 37 and lost only 3 of 45 meetings with the Eagles.
Eintracht did not score in any of last five clashes at Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
As mentioned above, Jupp Heynckes will mix up his cards here, resting his main stars for the Champions League rematch with Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu. Bayern lost the first leg 1-2 in front of the home crowd on Wednesday and the loss will definitely affect their mood ahead of this league clash. Yet, in spite of the negative momentum for the hosts, who could back anything else b8t the home win here knowing how huge the gulf in quality between the Bavarians and the rest of the league is.
We will rely on the head to head tradition and the fact Eintracht failed to find the net in last weekend’s home defeat to Hertha BSC. The value is thus decent in Bayern Munich to keep their net untouched at the odds of 2.75.
Also, Frankfurt’s defense showed plenty of holes of late shipping seven goals in last two losses to Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha. We thus see plenty of room for Sandro Wagner to create in the final third. You can have the German forward to score anytime at 2.50 here.
