Eintracht Frankfurt – Bayern Munich Match Prediction | 03-11-2019 10:30

They now host Eintracht Frankfurt and hope to impress in front of the home crowd once again, despite a tough challenge looming. Bayern Munich have seen another disappointing trip last week and saw RB Leipzig snatch a point to keep the Bundesliga title still in play, as they sit two points clear of Borussia Dortmund with a game to play.

Bayern, who are now unbeaten in 12 league outings (W9 D3), do still have a huge advantage in the title race, though. Their superior goal difference means that just a point against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday should be enough to see them crowned champions.Coach Niko Kovac can expect no sentiment against his former club going into the weekend the Eagles are in pursuit of Champions League qualification. Bayern Munich could have sealed their seventh consecutive Bundesliga title last weekend, but a 0-0 draw away to RB Leipzig allowed chasers Borussia Dortmund to regain some ground.

Javi Martinez is in a similar situation in midfield, but Thiago Alcantara and James Rodriguez have been passed fit and are back in full training. Manuel Neuer has not given up hope of featuring in the final game of the season as he battles back from injury, but he has also conceded he may not play again this season with Sven Ulreich having deputised in goal.

Robert Lewandowski His goal in the win 3-1 win against Hannover 96 was his 38th of the season in all competitions.Serge Gnabry Has enjoyed a break-out season, with the 23-year-old scoring 13 goals and bagging nine assists so far this season.Thomas Muller No longer in the national teams plans but still very much a key figure at Bayern, having scored nine goals and set up another 14 this season.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich Stats

Its no surprise that Bayern arebig favourites here they have won 38 of the 47 home meetings against Frankfurt after all (81%). However, the over/under goals line is set so high that we do feel that there is still value to be had in this game. Frankfurt have been really struggling for goals of late in fact, their 25 goals scored since the winter break is the second lowest number of any top half side and Bayern hold the second best defensive record in the league. Such a conclusion starts to put a bet on under 4.5 goals into perspective. Going off that, its reasonable to expect the Eagles to get a single goal some of the time against Bayern, but not too often.

Last time out, meanwhile, Frankfurt lost 2-0 at home to Mainz 05. A spectacular loss of form has seen Eintracht Frankfurt drop out of the top four and lose in the Europa League semi-final. Luka Jovic scored in both legs of that tie, but the Blues won on penalties after a 2-2 aggregate draw. A 6-1 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen in which Filip Kostic scored preceded a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the Europa League.

2019-20 Bundesliga Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern Munich Preview & Prediction

Frankfurts scoring numbers have dropped since coach Adi Hutter moved away from an attacking trio and its the Bundesligas third-top scorer Luka Jovic who has come off worst.He failed to get on the score-sheet for a fifth consecutive league game against Mainz on Sunday he did score one in each leg against Chelsea in the Europa League though so no doubt theyll be hoping for some inspiration from him going into the final day. Eintracht Frankfurt fell down to sixth last weekend as a second league defeat in a row saw Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen gain a point advantage on them going into the final day.

Miljat Gacinovic and Jonathan De Guzman will also be absent from Eintracht's midfield for this game. Andre Silva is also expected to miss this game. Filip Kostic is the latest player to join the injury list for Eintracht Frankfurt. Eintracht's defense will also be hurt by the absence of Marco Russ, Almamy Toure, and goalkeeper Kevin Trapp for this fixture.

Over 4.5 goals has landed in 31% of Bayerns home matches this season, but Bayern have scored more than four in just 4 of their 16 home games (25%). With the Bundesliga title at stake, the Bavarians may choose to simply try and play down the clock at times, further reducing the chances of the numbers going over that line. Our prediction: 3-1 Bayern. Frankfurt themselves have conceded more than three in just one of their matches this season, and with only 6% of their away days having seen a bet on over 4.5 goals land, we really like the price on unders here.
