Eintracht Frankfurt v Bayern Munich
German Super Cup. Kick-Off Sunday, 7.30pm, BT Sport 1
NIKO KOVAC will be in opposite dugout for the Super Cup when Bayern Munich face Eintracht Frankfurt. Robert Lewandowski will start up front, having scored Bayern’s goal in that cup final, while Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery have a full pre-season behind them.
Young German stars Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry will be joining the squad. Eintracht Frankfurt failed to beat Bayern Munich since 2010 before their DFB Pokal win.
Here are the results of their last five matches:
- May 19, 2018: Bayern Munich 1-3 Eintracht Frankfurt
- Apr 28, 2018: Bayern Munich 4-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
- Dec 09, 2017: Eintracht Frankfurt 0-1 Bayern Munich
- Mar 11, 2017: Bayern Munich 3-0 Eintracht Frankfurt
- Oct 15, 2016: Eintracht Frankfurt 2-2 Bayern Munich
Bayern warmed up for this game with an impressive display in a friendly 1-0 win against Manchester United. New boss Kovac will look to hit the ground running as he looks to show he is capable of taking charge at the country’s biggest club.
With that in mind, Bayern could well come flying out of the traps and look to dictate the tempo from the very first kick.
Under a new manager Adi Hutter, lacking the attacking prowess of Ante Rebic, and in rough pre-season form, it’s tough to see how Eintracht Frankfurt can do a repeat of the 2018 DFB Pokal final. Four of the last five matches between them have seen Over 2.5 goals hoping for the same tomorrow
