Bundesliga live: Where to watch Bayern vs Eintracht Frankfurt

32 points separate two teams striving to achieve highly different goals; Frankfurt will travel to Munich to play the unbeaten German Champions.

Preview: Will Pep Guardiola continue to tinker with his side?

Mario Götze has featured as a “falsche neun” in both of Bayern’s match in 2014. This has seen Mario Mandzukic relegated to the bench (or sometimes, to cheering duty from home). Mandzukic and Claudio Pizarro came on against Stuttgart in the Bavarians’ previous game to somehow rescue a point for Bayern. Stuttgart bullied Bayern physically and had many chances to add to their goal advantage but the introduction of the two gigantic marksmen saw them unfold.

Pizarro’s header saw Bayern get on the score sheet while constant probing by the Bayern forwards caused the Swabians to collapse in the last second and to concede thanks to a Thiago Alcantara wonder strike. Thiago is set to keep his place in the team with Bastian Schweinsteiger still in recovery. Along with Schweinsteiger, Holger Badstuber is out. Javier Martinez and Daniel Van Buyten are not fit enough to return yet. Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery might return to the squad. As injury worries are starting to lessen for Guardiola, his appetite to tinker might increase.

Werder Bremen vs Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

Friday May 10 2013,
Tags: Werder Bremen, Eintracht Frankfurt
Almost all the European and relegation spots in the table are settled; however, both these teams have something vital to play for rather than just pride.
Werder Bremen is in true trouble. They could end up in a playoff for survival if they do not perform well in their last two games of the season. On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt, still in with a shout for the Champions League qualifying berth, will be looking to take advantage of any slip ups by Schalke. This clash will be an extremely interesting one.

Bremen last week was leading Hoffenheim, 2-0, and looked set to guarantee their survival. They conceded two goals in the final five minutes to shockingly draw the match 2-2! In Frankfurt, there were no such shocks. Die Adler steamrolled Fortuna Düsseldorf, 3-1. They can guarantee at least Europa League football with a win this weekend. In the process, they could sink one of the Bundesliga’s best teams in the last decade into serious trouble.

Bundesliga Match-day 33 Preview: The Confetti set to fall in Bavaria

The battle for fourth spot could be settled on the day in which the Bundesliga shield will be presented to the 50th champions.

Fates to be decided in Bavaria

Bayern and FC Nürnberg could both be holding the fates of two relegation battlers in their hands. Augsburg has done extremely well since the winter break but has recently wobbled. They lost 2-0 to SC Freiburg last week, thus remaining in sixteenth spot. This week, the task lying ahead of them is a mammoth one to…

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Schalke 04 Preview

Thursday April 18 2013,
Tags: Eintracht Frankfurt, Schalke 04
Schalke proved that they have what it takes to compete with the best of the Bundesliga in their 2-2 draw against Leverkusen last week; their next opponent is none other than the Eagles, Eintracht Frankfurt.
Ji Dong-Won stole the headlines at Frankfurt’s cost during the last Bundesliga weekend. A team fighting for their lives in the league performed exactly as they were expected to against a rather weary opponent- with plenty of will. Augsburg took down Frankfurt, 2-0. Frankfurt’s incredible first half of the season is definitely what is keeping them up at the moment. Die Adler’s form in 2013 would have otherwise surely left them in the relegation zone.

Schalke meanwhile is holding on to fourth spot tightly for the moment. They were expected to finish in the top three at the beginning of the season; considering the events of November to March, the Royal Blues are indeed lucky to even be in the Champions League qualifying spot. They have finally found their feet again and they will not let go of Frankfurt easily.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern München Preview

Friday April 5 2013,
Tags: Bayern, Frankfurt
FC Bayern München might be crowned German champions this weekend when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt.
The equation is simple; if Bayern beats Frankfurt, they will undoubtedly be crowned German champions this week. In the event that Bayern does not win, if Dortmund does not win over Augsburg, the Bavarians will be crowned champions (they will have to wait for May to get the trophy nonetheless). Bayern is coming into this one on the back of an accomplished 2-0 win over Juventus.

Eintracht Frankfurt has had a rather indifferent 2013 following a brilliant first half of the season. They have managed to stay fifth due to the ineptitude of other teams rather than their own brilliance. Frankfurt finally won a match last weekend when they beat bottom side Greuther Fürth 2-3. The win came at a good time because Frankfurt had looked rather lost at times in 2013 until that game, including a 3-0 defeat to Dortmund in which BVB played most of the match with ten men.

Bundesliga Match-day 27 Preview: Is Bayern set to be crowned the 50th Bundesliga Champion?

The Bundesliga’s Match-day 27 could see the crowning of an old, yet new, champion. During this weekend, the race for fourth place might just have to take a back seat.

The Big Ones

Borussia Dortmund has a great record against most rivals. In recent seasons, they have been able to bat away every domestic opponent rather easily. The only team to not have suffered a loss to Dortmund last season was VfB Stuttgart. Incidentally, during this huge week for German football, BVB travels to Stuttgart.

A 4-4 draw between these two teams was one of the highlights of the 2011-12 season. Another such draw or even another stalemate like this season’s meeting, could bring down the curtains on the title defence of the Ruhr side.

Freiburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

Friday February 22 2013,
Tags: SC Freiburg, Eintracht Frankfurt
A direct battle for the Champions League qualifying spot is set to take place this week as Freiburg takes on Frankfurt.
After midweek European action, Friday is usually the day reserved in the Bundesliga for a battle between two sides which are not participating in Europe. Ironically, this Friday’s battle is set to take place between two sides which are both almost set for European action next week. Late collapses are not shocking in the Bundesliga however; Frankfurt can certainly relate to that.

In the 2010-11 season, Frankfurt looked set to qualify for European action in the first half of the season but then suffered relegation. This time around, Frankfurt has managed to remain steady following the winter break by garnering enough wins and draws. However, last week they were embarrassed in a week in which Freiburg went on to record a fantastic victory.

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt Preview

Friday February 15 2013,
Tags: Dortmund, Wolfsburg
Borussia Dortmund vs. Eintracht Frankfurt is the game with the highest possibility of serving up a feast this week in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund is coming into the match on the back of a rather lackluster performance in Ukraine. A 2-2 away draw is definitely a good result in the Champions League; however, despite the fact that BVB was marginally the better side on the day, the performance did not match those of BVB’s ones in the group stages.

Dortmund’s mental strength was tested endlessly in Ukraine. After dominating the initial part of the match, they fell behind to a brilliant free kick from Darijo Srna. It did not take long for the Ruhr side to come back; Robert Lewandowski equalized coolly before half time.

In the second half, BVB’s performance was rather frantic. They fell behind to a Douglas Costa goal following a howler from Mats Hummels. It was Hummels who eventually rescued the draw for Dortmund though with a great header late on.

Bayern plays crisis-stricken Schalke; a look ahead to Bundesliga Match day 21

Bayern will aim to keep a huge gap between themselves and Borussia Dortmund when they take on crestfallen Schalke this weekend.

The Big Matches

Sacking Huub Stevens was supposed to be the answer to an upturn in fortunes for the Royal Blues. In truth, Schalke’s poor form at the end of the previous calendar year was perhaps down to weariness rather than poor management. Jens Keller has done a poor job so far; Schalke has been consistently poor aside from one…
