Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt build up, pre-match team news & previous line-ups:
The 2019/20 Treble winners have more than recovered from a shock early defeat to Hoffenheim, currently sitting second in the Bundesliga, one point behind RB Leipzig. They also started their defence of the Champions League in emphatic fashion, beating three-time finalists Atletico Madrid 4-0 at the Allianz Arena.
Like Bayern, Eintracht Frankfurt have had a pretty solid start to the new campaign and are currently fifth in the Bundesliga as one of four teams yet to taste defeat. One point behind Saturday’s opponents, Eintracht have won two and drawn two to extend their unbeaten run from 2019/20 to eight games. However, they will have a hard task to continue that run if history is anything to go by.
Eintracht have suffered more Bundesliga defeats and conceded more goals to Bayern than they have against any other side in the competition and are on a 12-game losing streak away to the German champions.
- Bayern Munich (vs Atletico Madrid): Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Hernandez; Goretzka, Kimmich; Muller, Tolisso*, Coman; Lewandowski.
- Eintracht Frankfurt (vs FC Koln): Trapp; Abraham, Hinteregger, Hasebe; Toure, Ilsanker, Rode, Zuber; Kamada; Dost, Silva.
Bayern are without midweek hero Corentin Tolisso who is serving a suspension for his red card against Arminia Bielefeld, while Serge Gnabry remains out. Hansi Flick also confirmed Leroy Sane is fit but not quite ready to start this weekend.
Eintracht have no fresh injury concerns but Ragnar Ache is out and Filip Kostic may not return in time from his setback.
Players to watch:
- Bayern Munich: Joshua Kimmich. Everybody always raves about Bayern’s goalscorers and attacking players, meaning Kimmich is sometimes overlooked. The German is arguably one of the top players in the world, whether performing at right-back or in central midfield. It’s the latter position in which Kimmich has been thriving most with the ability to mix both his defensive and attacking skills, as shown in the thumping of Atletico Madrid. The German had 99 touches of the ball, 10 final third entries, 100% long passes completed, three interceptions, two tackles and two chances created including a ridiculous assist for Kingsley Coman’s opener. What a player.
- Eintracht Frankfurt: Andre Silva. Bayern have their goalscorers but so do Eintracht Frankfurt. Silva initially joined the Eagles on loan from AC Milan at the start of last season and the move was made permanent over the summer. Despite scoring three in his opening four games, the Portuguese forward had a tough start to life in Germany but really found form after the restart in May. Since the Bundesliga returned, Silva has scored 11 goals in the German top flight, with only Robert Lewandowski managing more during that time. Three of those goals have come this season – with only Hoffenheim able to keep him quiet – but even then the forward recorded an assist. Can Bayern’s tough defence be the first to prevent Silva from being directly involved in a goal this season?
