Bayern Munich is hosting Eintracht Frankfurt in the last game of Saturday’s Bundesliga program. Before the season, once the schedules had been made, it was supposed to be one of the most interesting clashes in this round, but now, once we see the results, it is free to say that it could turn out to be one-sided domination.
Bayern (-600) is leading the standings, and Hansi Flick’s guys defeated Union Berlin last week with 0-2 on the road. That was a pretty routine win in certain aspects, with the Bavarians controlling the situation on the pitch most of the time. Union was in certain moments unpleasant, but nothing the champs couldn’t handle.
The hosts have seven straight wins, but what impresses is the not that they kept clean sheets in the previous five matches. During that span, Bayern netted 14 times on the other side.
When looking only home events, Bayern hasn’t lost for eight consecutive at Allianz Arena. Seven wins with one draw is the record, with the goal-difference of 25-7. In all games but one, the champions scored at least two goals, and all but two saw over 2.5 goals.
Eintracht Frankfurt (+1200) travels to Munich following a pretty tough loss at home against Borussia Monchengladbach, 1-3. After seven minutes, the hosts already had a 0-2 deficit and were completely demoralized. And how wouldn’t they be when Monch took the lead with less than a minute since the opening whistle.
This was the third straight loss for the Eagles when counting the games before the pause, and in those three events, Eintracht scored one and allowed 10 goals. It seems that one of the biggest clubs in Germany is going to have a pretty uncertain future, as they slip down in the standings and approach the relegation zone.
As for the efficiency, Eagles’ matches are filled with goals, and just one in the previous 10 didn’t end with three or more scores. By the way, with seven points in 12 games, Eintracht is the worst guest in the German championship.
Philippe Coutinho, Niklas Sule and Corentin Tolisso are not available for Bayern, as all three guys have injuries. Javi Martinez is questionable.
On the other side, Dominik Kohr is suspended, while Goncalo Paciencia has problems with his muscle and won’t appear. Marco Russ is doubtful.
Head to Head Games
After the first game of the season, once Eintrach obliterated Bayern, its former coach Niko Kovac had to leave Munich. The result was 5-1, and that was one of the biggest slaps in the face in the last few years. That was the same result of the previous contest in Munich.
Let’s break it down like this. Eintracht is the worst team away from home in the league. Bayern suffered a humiliation in Frankfurt several months ago. Bayern has one of the best attacks in Europe. All this implies that we are possibly going to see a slaughter at Allianz Arena. Because of it, we are proposing Bayern to net at least two goals in the opening halftime. The odds on that are +125.
Pick: Bayern Over 1.5 HT +125
