Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern: Can soaring hosts halt reigning champs?

February 19, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
A top four clash waits when Eintracht Frankfurt welcome Bavarian titans Bayern Munich on Saturday, February 20th.

Preview: Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern

Adi Hutter's side have been in fanstastic form lately, and will come into this match on a four game winning streak. That has helped Eintracht Frankfurt rapidly rise in the table, and die Adler now find themselves in third place. To date, the hosts have lost just twice all season. Only Wolfsburg (currently in fourth) and Bayern Munich can match this impressive feat.

Indeed, Frankfurt were actually in ninth spot back in December, but since losing to Wolfsburg on December 15th, they've gone ten matches unbeaten. That's not only seen them pick up 26 out of a possible 30 points, but also makes them the most in-form side of any other team featuring in German football's upper echelon. A win for them on Saturday would bring them to 42 points, seven behind current league leaders Bayern. While that's still a significant gap to overcome, it would certainly put some pressure on Hansi Flick's squad, who come into this match having barely scraped a draw with Arminia Bielefeld last round.

Bayern also happen to be one of two teams who have beaten die Adler this season, so naturally, the prospect of revenge will certainly be on the hosts' minds as well. As things stand, Frankfurt could end up securing Champions League football for the first time in their history, and while there's still plenty of games to play between now and the end of the season, certainly Frankfurt supporters have already started to dream a bit. The title certainly may be a bridge too far, but certainly securing a top four berth isn't out of their reach if they can keep up this blistering form.

Meanwhile, Bayern, who recently became the second team after Barcelona to complete the famed Sextuple, will want to get back to winning ways here. A draw in their last match has allowed RB Leipzig to close down the gap to five points, and while die Roten still do have a somewhat healthy lead over the chasing pack, any dropped points here will certainly increase the pressure on the reigning champs.  

Team news: Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayern

Eintracht Frankfurt: The hosts have pretty much a full-strength squad available. Only Djibril Sow is definitely absent due to a ban, while Erik Durm could make a return if he can recover from a knock in time.

Bayern Munich: By contrast, the visitors have quite a few player out. Thomas Muller, who tested positive for COVID-19 while the team were in Qatar, will remain absent. Meanwhile, Douglas Costa (metatarsal), Tanguy Nianzou (thigh), Serge Gnabry (hamstring), Benjamin Pavard (also positive for COVID-19), and Alexander Nubel (ankle) will also not be available for selection.
