Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern München: Match preview
Not counting that triumph in the Cup final two years ago, Eintracht has not beaten Bayern since 2010. Obviously, Bayern is not a perfect for Eintracht, but they were able to win when it mattered most.
In the last three games played last season, Bayern scored 11 goals against Eintracht, when this team has played much better than it does in this championship. Given the tradition, position on the standings and current form, both teams will be rushing to three points in this match. And their previous trials show that both teams have the right to hope for success in this round.
Eintracht Frankfurt team news:
Eintracht managed to beat St Pauli in the Cup on Wednesday thanks to two goals from Dost in the early stages of the game. The home side reduced the gap from the penalty spot at the end of the first half, but Eintracht won the placement in the next round of the competition.
The handicap for Hutter is the fact that because of qualification for the Europa League, his team has started the season earlier than the others. Nevertheless, he wants to make the most of all three competitions in which Eintracht competes.
In the Championships, they are far away in the race for European positions, thanks to poor guest appearances. On the other hand, in Frankfurt, they are not yet aware of the championship defeat this season and wants to continue this trend regardless of the fact that the opponent is the current champion Bayern.
Due to injuries, Hutter will not be able to use first goalkeeper Trapp and defenders Russ and Toure against the current champion. It is questionable whether midfielder Gacinovic and de Guzman and striker Silva, who have not trained in full intensity in recent days, will be in competition for the performance. Wing striker Kostic is back in training and should get a chance to play in the match against Bayern.
Probable lineup: Ronnow, Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger, da Costa, Fernandes, Rode, Kostić, Kamada, Paciencia, Dost.
Bayern München team news:
Bayern has not been brilliant in recent weeks, but Kovac’s team managed to beat Olympiakos in the Champions League, Union Berlin in the Championship and Bochum in the Cup. This came after a home defeat to Hoffenheim and a point in the local derby against Augsburg. Those were minimal victories with a lot of pain, especially the last one last Tuesday in the Cup away against Bochum.
Bayern was saved from the unexpected knockout only in the very end of the match when Gnabry and Muller reversed the hosts’ lead. Bayern’s defense has been extremely leaky this season, and Kovac is definitely not helped by the fact that he lost Hernandez and Sule due to injuries for a longer period.
Probable lineup: Neuer, Kimmich, Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Tolisso, Thiago, Gnabry, Coutinho, Coman, Lewandowski.
We expect Bayern to continue the series with win over the team from the Frankfurt. Together Bayern’s win we propose at least three goals in the match.
