Bayern Munich will face Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
The game is a crucial one for the home side, who are placed on the top of the league table with 75 points, just two clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund with just one match to go. Therefore, Niko Kovac’s men will be aware of the fact they must produce another good performance and at least get a point from the game, which should be enough to seal the league title.
Der FCB will be coming in the match full of confidence as they are on an impressive run of seven wins and three draws in last 10 matches in the league .
On the other hand, the game is an extremely important one for the visitors as well, as they come in sixth in the table with 54 points, just one point behind fourth-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach. Therefore, Adi Hutter’s men will know they have to produce a positive result no matter what if they are to have any hopes of qualifying for a spot in the Champions League next season. However, Frankfurt will not come in the match feeling good about themselves, as they’ve not won a single match out of their last five in the league.
In the previous 35 meetings between both teams, Bayern emerged victorious 26 times compared to Frankfurt’s four. In the prior meeting between the clubs earlier in the league campaign, it was Bayern who came out on top 3-0, with Frank Ribery scoring a brace and Rafinha bagging the team’s third goal.
Joshua Kimmich (D): Kimmich is rated as one of the best in his position in the world of football. The 24-year-old is surely living up to the hype, as he is having an outstanding season for the club, both offensively and defensively. On the attacking end, Kimmich has proved his worth going forward from the right flank and is the top assist (12 ) provider for the club in the league campaign, and he has scored two goals. On the defensive front, Kimmich is averaging 1.3 tackles per game, a number which becomes more impressive if it is combined with one interception and 0.9 clearances.
Serge Gnabry (M): Gnabry has been one of Bayern’s most influential players in the middle of the park. The 22-year-old’s 10 goals are the second-most on the team, trailing only striker Robert Lewandowski, and he also has five assists. Defensively, Gnabry has done a decent job, averaging 1.4 tackles and 0.9 interceptions per game.
Luka Jovic (F): Jovic is one of the hottest young players in European football. The 21-year-old is having an outstanding season, scoring 17 goals in the league campaign. News in the media suggest that Jovic might be joining Spanish giants Real Madrid before the start of next season, therefore Saturday’s game may be his last for Frankfurt.
