Bayern v Frankfurt Odds

The Bundesliga has finally returned, and the first weekend of German football did not disappoint after its two-month-long absence. Football fans were treated to some great games across the weekend, featuring some impressive performances. 

On the receiving end of one of those performances were Eintracht Frankfurt, succumbing to a 3-1 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach. They face Bayern Munich on Saturday who marked their return to football with an easy 2-0 success against Union Berlin. 

The two will play each other at the Allianz Arena in Munich, where Bayern will look to extend their lead at the top of the table whilst Frankfurt will be desperate for a change in form as they precariously slip towards the relegation places.

The last meeting between the two should give Frankfurt some confidence, they thrashed their opponents at the Commerzbank Arena in what was an uncharacteristic loss for Bayern. A lot has changed since then though, and a repeat performance would be a huge shock. 

Here, we look at how both sides fair coming into the match, all the odds, and what fans should look out for.

Frankfurt Odds

Frankfurt come into this game as huge underdogs, with Paddy Power giving them odds of 14/1 to win and 15/2 for a draw.

Frankfurt’s season so far has been an underwhelming one, winning just eight of their 25 games and losing 13. They have clearly felt the effects of losing the dynamic trio of Luka Jovic, Sebastien Haller and Ante Rebic in the summer, struggling to emulate the goals that they provided. The three attackers contributed to 41 of the teams 60 League goals last year and their presence has been dearly missed. 

The lack of firepower that was shown last year means that Adi Hutter’s men find themselves in 13th, just five points away from the relegation places. What started as a season with hopes of European qualification could very quickly turn into an unexpected fight for survival. 

Filip Kostic has been the enduring bright spot of what has been an otherwise painful campaign for Die Adler. The Serbia international has managed to set a new single-season personal best with 12 goals and 15 assists across his 41 first-team outings in 2019/20. Kostic is constantly trying to create chances, his 145 crosses from open play is a league high and he is always knocking on the door. 

The Serbian grabbed a goal and an assist when Frankfurt embarrassed Bayern back in November, he will be keen to emulate that performance this time around and is sure to feature. He failed to make his mark against Monchengladbach last weekend and will be looking to make amends this week, albeit against the odds. 

Another player to look out for is on-loan striker Andre Silva. The 24-year old came off the bench to score in Frankfurt’s previous game and he will be looking to have a similar impact again. Hutter may opt for the more experienced Bas Dost in the starting lineup but Gomes is an exciting attacker, proving that he can make an impact on multiple occasions. If the game is still tight when getting deeper into the second half, Gomes might prove an effective weapon and capitalise on a tiring Bayern defence.

Bayern Odds

Hansi Flick’s side will travel to Frankfurt as the overwhelming favourites, Paddy Power are giving them odds of just 1/9 to walk away with three points.

Bayern currently sit top of the table, four points ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund, and are chasing their eighth consecutive league title. Top spot is theirs to lose and Flick’s side will want to capitalise on each opportunity to extend the gap at the head of the table.

The Bavarian’s season so far has been very impressive, winning 18 of their 26 games and losing on only four occasions. They have scored a league-high 75 goals whilst also being the tightest at the back, conceding just 26 goals.

Five of those goals conceded came in that unexpected defeat to Frankfurt earlier in the season and Flick’s men will be desperate for revenge. Flick was only the assistant on that day and will relish the chance to right his team’s wrongs now that he has full control. 

Bayern’s boss has enjoyed his spell as the main man since that loss. There was a momentary blip with consecutive 2-1 defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Gladbach in early December but since then Flick’s side have gone on a 12-game unbeaten run in the league, drawing just once in that run.

The key man amongst all the success has, of course, been Robert Lewandowski. The Poland international is having yet another fantastic season and notched his 40th goal of the campaign against Union Berlin last weekend. The goal means that he joins Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to become just the third man to score 40 goals in five consecutive seasons. 

The 31-year-old has been on fire all year long and looks set to star again against Frankfurt, his goal was Bayern’s only positive the last time the two met and he will be looking to do the same again this time around, whilst also hoping to go a step further and grab a win too.

There will, of course, be some flashbacks of November’s 5-1 battering at the hands of Frankfurt, but a lot has changed since then and Bayern will be confident going into Saturday’s game.

Since that day Bayern’s defence has improved significantly, as Flick’s men are on a three-game run of clean sheets and he will be looking to his defenders to increase that run to four at the weekend. The Bayern boss will be keen for his defenders to show more of the same and beat Frankfurt, filling his side with confidence before their potential title-decider against Dortmund in the following game week.
