As expected, Bayern Munich is atop the Bundesliga standings. Nevertheless, the reigning champ drew in its last two matches, meaning the competition is fiercer than ever. Right now, it only has a three-point advantage over second place, meaning it must return to the winning column as soon as possible.
Eintracht Frankfurt, currently sitting in fourth place, could make things even more interesting by pulling off a stunner on Saturday. If it does, the gap between it and Bayern will be reduced to two points. That’s enough to consider Frankfurt for your online gambling, especially at +565.
Let’s check the latest Bundesliga news, stats, injury reports, and Bundesliga lines for Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt. We’ve got plenty of Bundesliga picks for you to consider.
Joshua Kimmich Saved the Day
Last Tuesday, Bayern Munich was heavily favored in the soccer lines to defeat Koln. Nevertheless, the reigning champion suffered much more than expected and ended up winning a point thanks to a late goal from Joshua Kimmich. That’s right, while Ellyes Skhiri scored the opener for Koln only four minutes into the game, Kimmich scored the equalizer in the 90th minute.
Bayern also drew 1-1 to RB Leipzig. Both draws allowed FC Union Berlin to reduce the gap at the top of the standings to only three points. That’s why Bayern can’t afford to lose; the Iron Ones will visit Hertha Berlin, and according to the odds board, they shouldn’t have too much trouble getting the W.
The reigning champ has been missing Sadio Mane, who remains sidelined due to injury. Jamal Musiala and Eric Choupo-Moting must step up and lead the offense. Regarding the defense, fullback Bouna Sarr will be available after missing several games due to injury. Plus, new goalkeeper Yann Sommer is ready to show why he was hired as Manuel Neuer’s substitute, who is also out due to injury.
In the end, regardless of who gets to play, we’re talking about a well-balanced team, so much so that it is the top-scoring team, with 51 goals, and the team that has allowed fewer goals, with 15. That makes it much easier to understand why Bayern is the betting online favorite at -290.
Frankfurt: Non-Losing Streak
Frankfurt won’t be easy prey. The Eagles haven’t lost in their last five games, six if we include their last UEFA Champions League match. Most recently, they visited Freiburg and drew 1-1. Randal Kolo Muani was the scorer.
The Frenchman has scored six goals and leads the league in assists with 10, making Kolo Muani the main reason to consider including the visitors in your soccer picks. There are also Jesper Lindstrom and Daichi Kamada, who have scored seven goals each.
Overall, only Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig have scored more goals than Frankfurt, meaning you can expect a back-and-forth battle at Allianz Arena. Considering Frankfurt is 4-3-1 when playing on the road, its +565 price is worth a second look.
Finally, unlike Bayern, the visitors have no major injury concerns. They even had the luxury of leaving Sebastian Rode, Rafael Santos Borre and Lucas Alario on the bench in their last match. All three would be starters in pretty much any other Bundesliga team.
