Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena (Frankfurt).
Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich are set to battle it out in a mouth-watering derby of the Matchday on Saturday evening at Commerzbank-Arena. We expect to see a true goal fest when these two super powerful attacking sides come across each other in their last action of the year.
Bayern naturally come into the game as favourites, but they will have to work hard to keep things tight at the back and actually pull off a result here at Commerzbank-Arena. The visitors had a very turbulent campaign under Niko Kovac so far in the season.
Nevertheless, the Croatian manager managed to raise the spirits and re-install the winning mentality into Bavarians who won five and drew one of last six games across competitions.
Der FCB topped their respective Champions League group and they took advantage of Dortmund’s mid-week slip up against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Bayern are now just six points shy of BVB at the top of the ladder after surviving a stern RB Leipzig test via a 1-0 victory on Wednesday evening at Allianz-Arena.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
These two likes met each other in the pre-season Super Cup clash which saw a demolishing 0-5 victory for Bayern Munich.
Eintracht stunned the Bavarians with a 1-3 victory in the DFB Pokal final last season.
Bayern, however, came on top on both occasions in league games (4-1 and 1-0).
Five of last six H2H affairs saw three or more goals scored.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Frankfurt returned to winning ways by claiming four points in last two league games against Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz. However, Adi Hutter’s defensive line proved out to be quite vulnerable in recent fixtures. Team’s defensive holes were especially notable in a 2-2 draw to Mainz on Wednesday evening.
Such poor defensive shape of the Eagles’ will be the music to the ears of Robert Lewandowski who scored five goals in last four appearances for Bayern Munich. The Polish talisman is 1.40 to score anytime at Commerzbank-Arena. The standout bet would be Bayern Munich to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.60, while you can’t make a mistake backing four or more goals in the match at 2.10 either.
