Match Betting (1x2)

At the time of writing, the top nine teams in the German Bundesliga are separated by just two points. Borussia Moenchengladbach sit proudly top of the table, with ninth-placed Bayer Leverkusen also in the conversation as far as a title challenge is concerned right now.

However, a cursory glance at the outright odds would suggest that Bayern Munich very much remain the team to beat in their domestic league, with the Bavarian side sitting in third place after eight matches played.

Niko Kovac’s side have only won 50% of their matches thus far although we should expect that ratio to increase as the campaign wears on and they are trading at a best price 2/5 with Unibet to claim three points in Frankfurt.

Bayern are unbeaten on the road, although they were recently held to a 2-2 draw away to Augsburg, while they only just overcame the challenge of Olympiacos in a recent Champions League clash.

Therefore, Eintracht will fancy their chances of getting something from the match and they can be backed and they’re unbeaten on home soil.

Ladbrokes offer 6/1 that they inflict the first away defeat on the German champions, with the home side averaging two goals per home match at the moment.

The draw is available at 4/1 with the same firm and surely offers a better alternative than lobbing a big bet down on a Bayern team who currently have to balance Champions League obligations with domestic ones.

First Goalscorer

Those betting customers who backed Robert Lewandowski to be the leading scorer in the German Bundesliga this season will already be feeling confident of a payout considering he has doubled the tally of his nearest contender on the scoring charts.

The Pole is smashing records on a regular basis for FC Bayern and he’s trading at a prohibitively short 2/1 to open the scoring in this clash which is fairly standard when it comes to any Bundesliga clash involving his team.

Bayern aren’t a one-man team but it certainly helps to have a sharp shooter who has already plundered 21 goals in all competitions and Lewandowski hasn’t failed to find the net in any Bundesliga clash this term.

Serge Gnabry hit the headlines when plundering four goals at White Hart Lane in a recent Champions League clash, although the German’s goals come along on a more sporadic basis, with the winger having recently found the net at Augsburg.

Goncalo Paciencia is the leading scorer for the home side and he has eight goals to his name at the time of writing, with the Portuguese having returned to the scoresheet when recently plundering a brace against Bayer Leverkusen.

Asian Handicap

This is a great betting market if you feel as though Bayern are trading at an artificially short price and this is often the case considering that the bookies anticipate a lot of customers wanting to put the German champions into their accumulator.

So you can actually enjoy backing Eintracht Frankfurt on the Asian Handicap and not have to be worried about them winning the match.

For example, you can get 3/4 with Unibet about the home side with a +1.5 goal start and that means they don’t even need to draw the clash in order to profit, providing that it’s just a slender defeat of one goal.

Alternatively, Eintracht are a 27/20 chance with a +1 goal start which means money back if they lose by the odd goal although you would profit if they did win or draw the clash.

Both Teams to Score

Considering that there are very few games where Bayern (or Lewandowski) fail to score, then it’s hardly a surprise that the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market is trading considerably shorter than the “No” option.

Betfair have a best price 4/7 about the former and it’s fair to say that attack is likely to be the best form of defence for the home side if they’re to stand any chance of toppling difficult opponents who demonstrated their attacking might when thrashing Tottenham 7-2.

Over / Under Goals

On a similar note, Over 2.5 Goals is available at 4/11 although customers will look for a bigger goals line and they can get even money about Over 3.5 Goals with betfair which offers customers the potential chance of doubling your cash.

It’s not out of the question that we will see the net bulge on five occasions or more, with betfair offering 23/10 about Over 4.5 Goals.

Correct Score

Quite simply, while a Bayern Munich is the most likely outcome, we would much rather take our chances and back a 4-2 or 3-2 victory in favour of the visitors compared to a lower-scoring match.

The 4-2 win in favour of Bayern is a 28/1 chance with BetVictor and we can sit down and hope it starts raining goals in Frankfurt, while a 3-2 victory to the German champions is available at a more modest 16/1.
