Bayern Munich is welcoming Eintracht Frankfurt to Allianz Arena in round 7 of the German Bundesliga. Bayern is on one of those familiar winning streaks, and they are scoring goals for fun. Eintracht has been scoring goals pretty consistently, but they have also been conceded goals on a regular basis.
Bayern is now on a 9-game winning streak during which they have scored 40 goals, which is absolutely mind-blowing. Bayern is at the top of the table in Bundesliga, and they will stay there, but their main focus is the Champions League, where they are also dominant. Bayern was playing against Dynamo Kyiv earlier this week, and they have had 63% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Dynamo didn’t stand a chance in this game, and Bayern has deservedly won this game 5-0. In the Bundesliga, Bayern has already scored 23 goals, and it has been only 5 games, and Lewandowski has 7 goals to this name so far. Sane has added 4 assists. Pavard is suspended because of the red card, while Tolisso and Ulreich are both injured. Bayern is constantly improving on both ends, and I think they might go all the way in the Champions League.
Eintracht hasn’t lost any of their last 7 games, but they have won only 1 of those 7, and that was against Antwerp in the Europa League on Thursday. In Bundesliga, Eintracht is in 14th place with 5 points, which is only 2 spots above the relegation zone. In their last game against Koln at home, Eintracht has had 46% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 63% of the correct passes. The first half result was 1-1, and since we haven’t seen any more goals in the second half, that was the final result as well. Hauge is the leading goalscorer for Eintracht with only 2 goals. As I’ve mentioned, Eintracht is struggling, especially in the attacking end, but I get it, it’s to replace a striker who scored 25 goals last season. as far as the Europa League goes, Eintracht is doing well right now, but I think they need a bit more focus on Bundesliga because they are close to the relegation zone.
When these two teams meet, we usually see goals, and it will be the same here. Eintracht has had success against Bayern, but not when they were in a good form like this, and for that reason, I’m taking Bayern and goals in this game.
