Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Super Cup
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK /20:30 CET
Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt am Main.
Bayern Munich will be looking for the revenge for the surprising loss in the DFB Pokal final to Eintracht Frankfurt as the two teams are set to take on each other in the German Super Cup tie on Sunday evening at Commerzbank-Arena.
It will be the first official game in charge for Niko Kovac who led the Eagles in the previous term of Bundesliga.
Bayern won the Super Cup in back-to-back years beating Borussia Dortmund on both occasions.
They’ll have a nice chance to make it three on the bounce here given Eintracht’s poor run of form in pre-season friendlies.
The Eagles lost three of last four off-season games to the likes of Philadelphia Union, Empoli and SPAL.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich were the dominant force in this match-up over the course of history.
The Bavarians won 53 and lost 21 of 93 encounters with the Eagles.
There were three or more goals in four of last five head to head outings.
Interestingly, Frankfurt lead the head to head tie in matches at Commerzbank-Arena where they won 17 and lost 15 of 48 games against the Bavarian giants.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Unlike Frankfurt, Bayern had much more serious tests at the International Champions Cup. They lost two of three games there, though, in spite of the fact Kovac could count on services of most first team regulars in the competition.
Nevertheless, the atmosphere in the dressing room was improved last Sunday when the Bavarians dispatched Manchester United 1-0 in the final check before the first official game of the season.
There will be no important absentees for any of two managers and we really expect Bayern Munich to conform the favourites tag and pick up an easy straightforward victory.
The hosts struggled to create in the off-season under the new head coach Adi Hutter which is why our alternative bet will be Bayern Munich to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.20.
