Eintracht Frankfurt v Bayern Munich Betting Tips – German Super Cup, 12th August 7.30pm

There will a top entertaining clash in the DFL Super Cup on the weekend as Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt meet in Frankfurt. Bayern Munich stormed their way to another Bundesliga title last season while Frankfurt pulled off a huge surprise in defeating the Bavarians in the final of the DFB Pokal. Will Bayern Munich be able to get some revenge and land the Super Cup for the third straight season?

Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form

It was only an eighth-place finish for Frankfurt last season in the Bundesliga, but their big moment of the term came in the final of the DFB Pokal. They were heavy underdogs for the final of the German Cup against Bayern Munich but they managed to get an early goal in the game through Ante Rebic and even though Bayern equalised after halftime, Frankfurt got themselves over the finish line. That was through a couple of late goals, including a second from Rebic, who has extended his contract with them.

Frankfurt have a new manager in Adi Hutter and he pretty much has a full strength squad to select from. We are going to back both teams to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on 10th August, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.) for the Super Cup. The only other appearance that Eintracht Frankfurt has made in the DFL Supercup was as runners-up in 1988. Interestingly of the previous editions of the DFL Supercup, the DFB Pokal winners playing in the match, have won it just four times.

Bayern Munich News and Form

Bayern Munich have won the DFL Super Cup six times before which makes them the most successful side in the history of the cup. They have earned the title for the last two seasons as well so have been enjoying themselves in this fixture. They may be tough to knock off their perch. Bayern had a change of manager over the summer as well with Niko Kovac taking over. There are few players who are doubtful like James Rodriguez, Sandro Wagner and Jerome Boateng for them.

The difference between the two sides though is that Bayern can call upon a much richer wealth of back up than Frankfurt can. Last season Bayern romped to the Bundesliga title, winning by a margin of 21 points over second-placed Schalke. They are backed heavily to do the same. The first goalscorer favourite is Robert Lewandowski at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on 10th August, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.) which is always worth a flutter. This is a big chance for the new manager to open his competitive account in some style.

Eintracht Frankfurt v Bayern Munich Head to Head

Bayern Munich had the edge over Frankfurt in last season’s Bundesliga campaign, winning both games against Frankfurt. However, when it came to their May meeting in the final of the German Cup, Eintracht Frankfurt turned the tables and pulled out a shock 3-1 win. That snapped a run of fourteen winless matches that they were on against the Bavarians. Four of the last five meetings have ended over 2.5 goals.
