Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich host their big rivals and the team that won the Europa League last season, Eintracht Frankfurt. The fans at the Allianz Arena are anxiously awaiting a win because Bayern failed to beat Koln in the previous round. Numerous missed chances took a toll against the Billy Goats, and the title race is much more interesting now than one week ago. As for the Eagles, they are trying hard to hang on to one of the top four places in the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich (-330) has back-to-back ties, one in Leipzig against RB and the other at home against FC Koln. Both events ended with the same result, 1-1. Unlike the event in Leipzig, where both teams could have ended on the winning side, the one in Munich was all about Bayern and its missed chances.
Julian Nagelsmann’s crew had numerous chances to score, but the forwards lacked focus each time they were in front of the rivals’ net. Still, knowing Bayern’s quality, they will start to deliver sooner or later because this team simply has a massive scoring potential.
Bayern netted 27 goals in eight appearances at the Allianz Arena, while allowing seven, and has five wins and three ties during that stretch. The game against Koln was the first this year in Munich in which Bayern didn’t net at least twice.
Eintracht Frankfurt (+650) beat Schalke 3-0 at home before playing on the road in Freiburg. That clash saw a tie, 1-1, and we can say that the Eagles could have done better against Zebras. Yet, there is no time to lament over wasted opportunities.
The team from Frankfurt is one of the best on the road in the Bundesliga, that is, they sit second behind Bayern. Eintracht had eight challenges outside their house, winning four, having three ties and one loss, with a goal difference of 15-12.
Counting in all the road events since the year started, Eagles scored in all but one contest, while nine of those games saw three or more goals.
Lucas Hernandez, Sadio Mane, Mazzraoiu, Saar, and Manu Neuer are all out for this event.
On the other side, Dina Dbimbe, Pellegrini, and Wenig are three players who won’t be in Eintracht’s protocol.
Head to Head Games
Eintracht created some trouble for Bayern in the past few years, scoring even five goals in one of their wins against this rival. Though, that time is behind us.
These two teams already met during this campaign in their first game of the year. Bayern humiliated Eintracht in Frankfurt, winning 1-6, reminding everyone that they still rule the country, even though the Eagles have one European title.
The guests are in solid shape but let’s be honest here, they are coming to the lion’s pit here. Bayern’s attack simply has to start working properly at some point, and in our opinion, this is that moment. Eintracht’s defense isn’t strong, and we’ve seen them conceding against much weaker attacks. That’s why we take Bayern to win and to cover a 1.5-goal spread. The odds here are +100, which is a great offer, and we won’t refuse it.
Pick: Bayern Munich -1.5 +100
