The steam roller that is Bayern Munich will roll into Frankfurt on Friday night with a perfect record. Bayern Munich have played ten and won ten in the league and will be looking to make it eleven in a row on Friday night. Bayern Munich have a ridiculously strong squad and with Pep Guardiola one of the best managers in world football. The return of Arjen Robben brings with it a trickery and invention that has been missing from some of Bayern's play which is also scary considering they have won every game this season. Munich are exceptional and really it's hard to see how any team in the Bundesliga will even take a point off them at this point. Maybe if Munich get a man sent off early then other teams will have a chance but at this point in time I dont see there being much chance for any team in the Bundesliga to beat the Champions.
What a game for Eintracht Frankfurt, they face a Munich team that are perfect so far this season and Frankfurt come into this game having lost three of their last four and going out of the DFB Cup to a third division team midweek. Frankfurt have some solid players but will look to Meier in midfield as their top scorer to bring the game to Munich. I think that they set up with eleven men behind the ball and attempt to stifle Bayern in midfield deny them space and hope to press Lewandowski and Muller as the ball gets there. Frankfurt have plenty of energy and will press Bayern when not in possession and while it's going to be tough to do that for 90 minutes I think they can be successful in holding Bayern in the first half.
There just isnt alot of value when you look at Bayern Munich games in the Bundesliga. I'm taking a punt on Eintracht Frankfurt +1 in the first half at 7/5 this is a decent bet and considering that Frankfurt have actually been strong till have time in the league this season I think they can at the very least manage a push here. The draw at halftime is available at 2/1 and is also very tempting. Bayern have been held in two of their four away games this term so 2/1 is a big price on that draw. While Bayern do probably run out easy winners in the end this is Bayern's third game in seven days so maybe there will be tired legs there.
