Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt
German DFB Pokal
Date: Saturday, 19 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin.
The Eagles were genuine top-four-finish chasers at one point of the season in Bundesliga, but team’s form has seen a huge stumbling block ever since Bayern Munich acknowledged the football public in Germany about appointing Niko Kovac as the new head coach for the next season.
The Eagles ended the Bundesliga campaign at the disappointing eighth place, falling short in the Europa League contest as well. They’ll have one more chance of making it to the European football next term, but it will be a super tough one, given Bayern Munich will be at the other end of the pitch in the battle for the DFB Pokal trophy.
The Bavarians had a super dominant season from the very start of the campaign in Bundesliga as their top-place finish has never come in question throughout the 34 rounds of the competition. Bayern ended the season with a massive 21-point cushion ahead of Schalke 04 in second.

Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Prediction
This will be the last game in charge for Jupp Heynckes who will no doubts want to get a victorious farewell. It will be interesting to see how the team will react after falling 1-4 to Stuttgart at home on the final day, though.
Bayern Munich destroyed Eintracht 4-1 in the recent league tie in spite of playing with a completely mixed-up lineup which featured three members of the junior team. Niko Kovac and his men have had huge issues with scoring lately and knowing they did not find the net in 10 of last 12 meetings with Bayern Munich, we have to back the Bavarians to keep a clean sheet as the main betting option at the odds of 1.90.
Bayern are heavy favourites against an outfit which lost three of last four Bundesliga games. We’ll alternatively back them to win by two or more goals at the 1.70 odds.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Bet Tips
- Bayern to keep a clean sheet @ 1.90
- Bayern Munich to win with a -1.5 handicap @ 1.70.
