Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich will kick off the 2022-23 Bundesliga campaign this week. The match will be held at Deutsche Bank Park and is scheduled is kick off at 7:30pm UK time this coming Friday.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt did not have a particularly great Bundesliga campaign last season. The Eagles ended up as low as 11th in the table with 42 points from 34 matches, just nine points above the bottom three.

However, Eintracht Frankfurt were superb in Europe last season and beat Scottish Premiership giants Rangers in the final of the UEFA Europa League. This means that the German club have qualified for the group stage of the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League campaign.

Oliver Glasner’s side are not going to challenge for the Bundesliga title this season, but they will at least hope to finish in the top four. Eintracht Frankfurt have been quite busy in the summer transfer window. Among the players the Bundesliga club have signed are former Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze, Lucas Alario and Jens Petter Hauge.

Team News:

Jerome Onguene and Aurelio Buta have muscle and knee issues respectively. Mario Gotze could start against his former club Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are the biggest club in Germany, and they will be expected to win the Bundesliga title yet again this season. Bayern have been the champions of Germany since 2012-13 and are overwhelming favourites to make it 11 league titles in a row.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far. The former UEFA Champions League winners have signed Noussair Mazraoui, Ryan Gravenberch, Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt among others. However, Bayern saw star striker Robert Lewandowski leave for Barcelona this summer.

While Bayern will be looking to win all domestic competitions this season, the Bavarian giants will be determined to go all the way in the UEFA Champions League. They last conquered Europe in 2019-20 and before than in 2012-13.

Team News:

 Leon Goretzka is doubtful with a knee injury. Sadio Mane will start for Bayern, and so will Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have won 3 of their 4 pre-season games.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have drawn 1 of their last 4 pre-season games.
  • Bayern Munich beat RB Leipzig in the German SuperCup.
  • Bayern Munich have won the last 10 Bundesliga titles.
  • Sadio Mane scored on his competitive debut for Bayern Munich.

Conclusion 

The first league game of the season is always tricky for any club. Eintracht Frankfurt are at home, so they will have an advantage. However, Bayern Munich are a well-oiled machine, and they should be able to get the job done and pick up maximum points from the Bundesliga game. Bayern may start the match slowly, but given the firepower they have, once they get going, it will be tough to stop them.
