After beating Union Berlin 2-0 on the resumption of the Bundesliga last week, leaders Bayern Munich are lined up to host thirteenth-placed Eintrancht Frankfurt . Robert Lewandowski put the Bavarians ahead in the match with five minutes to the break and Benjamin Pavard completed the tally in the 80th minute. This became the team's seventh consecutive victory and indicator of their commitment to walk out of this season as champions. At the Allianz Arena, Bayern have won sever of eight games in all competitions. Five of the eight games had over 2.5 goals and half of them had goals by both opponents.
Frankfurt had an unfortunate resumption to the campaign as they lost 3-1 at home to Monchengladbach. They went 3-0 down before a consolation goal nine minutes from time. The loss was their fourrth in a row in the Bundesliga and they are now only five points above the relegation play-off position. On the road, Die Alder are a struggling team with the worst record in the league. Just seven points from 12 games and seven losses in the last nine. The last two have both been lost 4-0 and another poor result looks likely against the league leaders. Manager Adi Hutter will have to work hard to emerge from this game with a point, given that his team has lost four of their last six matches against Bayern. However, a win for the team is not a far-fetched idea because Frankfurt beat the Bavarians 5-1 in the reverse fixture but the form of both sides has changed a great deal since November with Bayern earning 18 points more than Frankfurt in the last 10 league fixtures.
Bayern are red-hot at the moment and after seven consecutive wins, they have made clear their intentions. Eintracht can be a tough side by their own right and had that big win in the reverse fixture. Times have changed since that game though. We expect goals in this match and it is likely that both opponents will score. However, what is more assured is that the total tally will exceed two goals.
