Bayern Munich lock horns with Eintracht Frankfurt with the Bundesliga title race wide open

A last-minute thunderous strike by Joshua Kimmich helped Bayern Munich save face against FC Koln as the reigning German champions still look for their first Bundesliga victory against Eintracht Frankfurt in Munich.

Bayern Munich would look to return to winning ways after two stalemates since the World Cup break. Julian Nagelsmann’s team had a jaw-dropping run until the showdown in Qatar embarking on a 10-game winning streak.

With other teams breathing down their neck, Julian Nagelsmann would be hopeful to restore the confidence of Bayern players before the Valentine’s Day Champions League clash against PSG.

Eintracht Frankfurt has been quite sparkling this summer with some magnificent performances in Bundesliga. Currently, on a 5-game winning streak, the reigning Europa League winners could give a hard time to Bayern Munich.

The two opponents are separated by just five points in the table and the Eagles can pull a rabbit out of their hat at the Allianz Arena.

The German club would also have its eyes laid on the Champions League encounter against a high-flying Napoli side and would want to enter the contest on the back of a victory against Bayern.
