Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt begins 18.05.2019 at 15:30 CET
Bayern struggled this season and was expected that will easier defend the title but all what it matters is that the trophy again ends in Munich. They can later analyse why the season is not successful as it was expected, even if they defend the title and win the DFB-Pokal, in which they reached the final. Bayern was eliminated from the Champions League too early and nothing what it did in German competitions was done with a style and in accordance with standards set by the Bavarians.
They struggled in the DFB-Pokal from the very beginning, while in the league they seemed at one point totally lost. It can be freely said that Borussia Dortmund crisis and weak results had put back Bayern in the title race, rather than their accomplishments. Bayern played modestly in three previous rounds; they drew in Nurnberg but only thanks to large dose of luck, won in Hannover and drew with Leipzig 0-0 in the previous round. That was the first “match point” and this is the second and last one. The same team that played in Leipzg will again run on the pitch.
Probable lineups Bayern Munich: Ulreich – Kimmich, Sule, Hummels, Alaba – Goretzka, Alcantara – Gnabry, T. Muller, Coman – Lewandowski
Everything indicates that the season will have a very sad ending for Eintracht, although it seemed recently that will be the one written in golden letters in the club history. They occupied the fourth place which leads to the Champions League and were semi-finalists of the Europa League. It means they could have reached the European title and qualifies for the elite club competition in Europe next season, but now they can easily have nothing of that. Eintracht has already been eliminated from the Europa League after two draws with Chelsea and despite good resistance to objectively much stronger rival.
They gave their best in two semi-final legs and were eliminated only after penalty shootout. That was just part of misfortune in the finish of season given couldn’t win in last five league rounds where two defeats have put them in very delicate situation. They are the sixth in the table, however, they will face now the leading team which needs points. If Eintracht losses it could easily not qualify at all for the Europa League. The best scenario would be to win and that other results propel them at the fourth place. Players are tired and burned out, Rode is out of action but the best available team goes on the pitch for better or worse.
Probable lineups Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp – Abraham, Hinteregger, Falette – Hasebe, G. Fernandes – da Costa, Kostic – Rebic – Haller, Jovic
Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt PICK
Bayern has its fate in its own hands and will play at home. We don’t believe that will let anything to chance and will attack from the first minute, which tired guests from Frankfurt can hardly parry. That is why we don’t give Eintracht much chance.
