Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Bayern Munich continue to excel, and have been at their dominant best this time around as well. While Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry have once again been sensational, the good form of Leroy Sane has been one of Bayern Munich's biggest positives so far.
Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, have endured a slow start under the management of Oliver Glasner. They have some good players, but they have drawn five of their first six league games. A big improvement is required.
Bayern Munich will be the favourites to win here.
Prediction: Bayern Munich 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt
