5/23/20 12:30 pm
Over 2.5 (-350), Under 2.5 (+275)
Bayern Munich is hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at Allianz Arena in part of round 27 in German Bundesliga.
Bayern is undefeated in their last 11 games in Bundesliga, Champions League, and DFB Pokal. In their last 4 games, Bayern has scored 12 goals, while conceding 0 goals. Bayern is the best attacking team in Bundesliga mostly thanks to Lewandowski who is playing in amazing form this season and he scored 26 out of Bayern’s 75 scored goals. Gnarby added 11 goals and 9 assists, while Thomas Muller has 15 assists. Bayern Munich is in the first place of Bundesliga standings with 58 points, 4 points more than their biggest competitor, Borussia Dortmund. In their most recent match in Bundesliga against Augsburg last week, Bayern has had 74% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 86% of the correct passes. Augsburg didn’t stand a chance in this game as Bayern was in total control through the entire match. Bayern has won this game 2-0, but the result could have been a lot bigger if Bayern had just a bit more focus in finishing their chances. Bayern has a lot of good players in every position, and recently they even started preparing for the future by signing some young and talented players. Being in the first place makes Bayern a favorite to win the title, but 4 points advantage is not a lot and one bad result is enough for Borussia to catch up.
Eintracht was in terrible form 2 months ago before the season was stopped, and they continued the same way last week when it started again. Eintracht has won only 1 of their last 6 games and they conceded at least one goal in 7 of their last 8 games. Eintracht is in low 13th place in the standings with only 28 points, 39 scored goals, and 44 conceded goals. Eintracht is actually closer to the relegation zone than the Europa League. In their Bundesliga game last week against M’gladbach at home, Eintracht has had 53% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 80% of the correct passes. M’gladbach was just too good in this game and Eintracht has lost this match 1-3. Paciencia has scored 7 goals for Eintracht this season, while Hinteregger added 6 goals, and Bas Dost and Andre Silva added 5 goals each. Filip Kostic has 9 assists. Eintracht is still playing in the Europa League this season, and they faced Basel in the first round of the knockout stage. Eintracht has lost the first leg 0-3, while the second leg has been postponed, unfortunately. Eintracht was more than good last season, but since than they lost players like Jovic and Rebic who were both extremely important to them, and it seems that it was just too much for Eintracht to handle and to find decent replacements.
When Bayern and Eintracht meet there are usually a lot of goals scored. While playing at home, Bayern has lost only 1 game against Eintracht. These two teams are in the completely opposite forms, but both teams need a win, one to stay at the top of Bundesliga, one to stay outside the relegation. I think Bayern gets this one.
