Bayern Munich should target the left flank to beat Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern Munich resumed their Bundesliga action last weekend with a 2-0 victory against Union Berlin. An unconvincing performance for some, considering Bayern’s high standards, Hansi Flick’s men did a decent job. Union is a hard nut to crack, especially in their backyard. Since Borussia Dortmund moved in touching distance with Bayern on the previous day, victory was Flick’s primary target.

The reigning champions will host Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena in game-week 27 of the Bundesliga. The Bavarians were battered in their previous clash in November. Die Roten should be favourites for this game considering Frankfurt’s poor form.

The Eagles continued with their poor performance as they suffered another defeat at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach last week. Their away form, even more so, is in shambles. Eintracht Frankfurt has collected just one point in their last three away fixtures, conceding nine goals in the process. Only Augsburg has performed worse away from their turf in the same period.

In today’s column, we take a closer look at how Bayern struggled with just nine outfield players as they were rattled by a merciless Eintracht Frankfurt side. The Eagles clawed deep in Bayern’s flesh till the Bavarians bled by slotting five goals past Manuel Neuer.
