Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern: prediction for the Bundesliga match
The new Bundesliga season kicks off with a match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern on August 5. In three previous head-to-head matches the Eagles proved their worth to the champions. Will the best German club start the season with a victory? The answer is in our prediction.
Eintracht claimed the Europa League trophy and will face Real Madrid in the European Super Cup match on August 10. As for the Bundesliga, team finished at 11th spot, but the board shouldn't be disappointed with that result. A victory in the Europa League gave the team an automatic spot in the new edition of the Champions League. In the first official match of the new season team hammered Magdeburg (4:0) and advanced into the next round of DFB-Pokal.
During the off-season team signed Hauge, Alario, Gotze, Jakic and Smolcic. Zuber, Kohr and Salazar left the club.
Bayern Munich have won their tenth German Super Cup, beating Leipzig in a high-scoring battle (5:3). Club's new signings got their chance to shine in this game, Sadio Mane managed to score his first goal. There were no real opposition for Bayern in the previous Bundesliga season. 2nd-placed Borussia Dortmund finished the campaign eight points behind Bayern.
During the transfer window club signed Mane, De Ligt, Tel, Gravenberch and Masraoui. Lewandowski, Sule, Tolisso, Chris and Omar Richards left the club.
In each of four latest matches of Bayern both teams scored
In each of four latest matches Bayern conceded in the second half
This bet played in each of eight latest matches of Eintracht
Eintracht players know how to slow Bayern down, they did it in a few previous head-to-head matches. Munich team will have an advantage, but they are unlikely to win the game by a wide margin. Super Cup match against Leipzig showed that Nagelsmann's team is far from perfect right now.
Our prediction - Eintracht to win with a handicap of (+1,5) goals
Both teams have some brilliant offensive players, so we are not expecting a goalless draw today. However, opponents are unlikely to score too many goals. Hosts need to perform well on defense to get a positive result.
Our second bet is on total under 3,5 goals
