Match: Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Competition: Germany – DFB-POKAL
Time / Date: 21:00h / 19 May 2018
In a ‘David vs Goliath’ clash, German champions Bayern Munich face Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympiastadion in Berlin for the 66th DFB Pokal final.
With their 27th Bundesliga title in the bag, Bayern Munich travel to the Olympiastadion to face Eintracht Frankfurt for a fifth DFB Pokal final in seven years. This will be Jupp Heynckes’ final game in his fourth stint as Bayern Munich manager, and though he will be disappointed not to be pushing for the treble in the Champions League final too, seeing them out with a domestic double would still be a remarkable achievement. Bayern do have a few injury concerns to contend with, but this shouldn’t be a problem with the Bavarians boasting a squad depth unmatched by any other German side.
The Eagles ended the Bundesliga campaign at the disappointing eighth place, falling short in the Europa League contest as well. They’ll have one more chance of making it to the European football next term, but it will be a super tough one, given Bayern Munich will be at the other end of the pitch in the battle for the DFB Pokal trophy.
Arjen Robben (Adductor problems), Manuel Neuer (Training deficit), Juan Bernat (Muscular problems), Jérôme Boateng (Hamstring Injury), Arturo Vidal (Knee injury)
Renat Dadashov (special leave), Gelson Fernandes (Red card suspension), Nelson Mandela Mbouhom (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Danny Blum (Inflammation)
Bayern Munich won 4-1 in Bavaria when the two sides last met in late April. Bayern are unbeaten in 14 games against Frankfurt (W11,D3).
Expect Bayern to dominate this game from the outset and Frankfurt to fight hard to keep this match open for as long as possible.
