Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 3-1 win over Hannover Bayern Munich cemented top position in the Bundesliga standings. The mighty Bavarians are on the right track to defend their trophy and it has to be noted that they are ten points clear of their bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund ahead of Matchday 15. The reigning champions quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach, with Robert Lewandowski scoring his 14th goal of the season in the triumph over Hannover. The Poland international is eager to add more goals to his account and all eyes will be on him when Bayern Munich face Eintracht Frankfurt at Commerzbank-Arena. Die Adler, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Hertha at Olympiastadion, but FCB are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. It has been seven years since Eintracht Frankfurt recorded their last win over Bayern Munich in the German top flight and they are unlikely to put an end to the negative trend.

The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times. The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005.
