Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Odds
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Form
Both sides have endured different fortunes since the turn of the year. Bayern Munich have dropped just two points since the winter break, and have scored 50 goals in their previous 16 matches. Robert Lewandowski has been in tremendous form throughout the season, and no player in European football has scored more than his tally of 40 this season. That total is ten better than the next best (Kylian Mbappe), and 25 and 24 goals more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi respectively.
Lewandowski’s form is the stark opposite to Frankfurt’s top scorer. Goncalo Paciencia has only scored seven goals this season in the Bundesliga. Frankfurt have been unable to replace the outgoing Luka Jovic and Ante Rebic, and that has left them short in the final third of the pitch. In fact, Bayern have scored more goals in their last 16 games than Frankfurt have scored all season.
Away form would certainly appear to be an issue for Frankfurt as they have only picked up seven points out of their 12 games on the road this season. They are also conceding more than an average of two goals per game on the road. They come into this fixture having lost their last four, while Bayern have won their previous five.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Player To Watch
Alphonso Davies’ stock has certainly risen in the Bundesliga this season, with the 19-year-old quickly being renowned as one of the most exciting full-backs in world football. He has made 18 appearances in the Bundesliga this season, and has scored one goal and made four assists. He adds a fresh dynamic to this exciting Bayern side, and Frankfurt’s biggest task will be stopping him from breaking forward on the left.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Recent Meetings
Bayern Munich are the dominant side in this fixture, and have won 22 of the previous 30 matches. Frankfurt have won just four times. One of those victories came earlier in the season, as they enjoyed a rare big win. Their 5-1 victory signalled the end of the Niko Kovac regime. Djibril Sow, David Abraham, Martin Hinteregger and Paciencia all scored on that famous day.
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Picks
It is incredibly hard to see past Bayern Munich getting the three points on Saturday. Their home form has been brilliant this season as they have only lost two of their 13 games at the Allianz. There will also be a feeling that Lewandowski will be adding to his goals tally for the season, as Bayern pull four clear at the top.
