High-flying Eintracht Frankfurt welcome league leaders Bayern Munich to the Commerzbank-Arena for a Bundesliga clash on Saturday evening.

Bayern will be looking to get back to winning ways after dropping points against lowly Arminia Bielefeld on Monday. Bayern were 2-0 down in that game and then went down 3-1 before drawing 3-3 to take a point from that game.

Robert Lewandowski, Corentin Tolisso and Alphonso Davies scored in that game to give Bayern a point.

However, the two points they dropped reduced Bayern's lead at the top of the Bundesliga to five points, with RB Leipzig having won last weekend.

Eintracht Frankfurt have won their last four league games in a row, catapulting them up to third place in the league.

Last week, after a goalless first half, Andre Silva and Evan N'Dicka scored in the second half to give Frankfurt a 2-0 win against FC Koln.

They are currently level on points with fourth-placed Wolfsburg, three points ahead of Bayer Leverkusen, who are in fifth spot.

Lewandowski scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture as Bayern won 5-0 at the Allianz Arena.
