EINTRACHT – BAYERN MUNCHEN

15.10.2016

After a dissapointing draw against Koln at home, Bayern Munich are travelling to Frankfurt to meet Eintracht in a game from the 7th round of the German Bundesliga.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team started the new Bundesliga season in a brilliant way, winning five consecutive games and being once again the most dominant team in the league. Losing two points against Koln at home was really surprising, but now the Bavarians could fix their mistake in Frankfurt.

Eintracht are currently sitting in the middle of the table with 10 points won from six games played. Niko Kovac’s team lost against Freiburg in the last round of the Bundesliga, but overally they made a good start in the Bundesliga this season, winning half of their games so far.

If you look at Bayern’s stats from the first six games so far, you will see that they are truly impressive. Carlo Ancelotti’s team scored 16 goals in six games and conceded just two, with one of them against Koln in the last round. Robert Lewandowski is once again being Bayern’s most profilic striker, scoring five times since the start of the campaign. It’s also surprising to see how Joshua Kimmich is performing so far, with the youngster being Bayern’s second most profilic player in front of the goal, scoring three times in the first six games.

Eintracht will rely on the offensive qualities of Alexander Meier, who has three goals on his account since the start of the campaign. Niko Covac’s boys scored just eight goals in the first six games, which is not showing us any impressive attacking form by them so far. And now, when they are facing the team with the best defense in the league, it would be really difficult for them to grab something from this game, at least offensively.
