Bayern against Eintracht Frankfurt: This is how Flick could crack the SBU
First announcement of May 21: Munich - FC Bayern are looking forward to their first home game since March 8 (2-0 against FC Augsburg). After the Corona break , Eintracht Frankfurt made a guest appearance at the Allianz Arena *. With the Hessians, things are not really going well even after the restart of the Bundesliga. The team of Adi Hütter is nine match days * before the finish in 13th place - closer to the relegation zone than to the international climes. That is also why FC Bayern is the clear favorite against the SBU. But with which team will coach Hansi Flick * tackle the task? We thought about it.
FC Bayern Munich lineup against Eintracht Frankfurt: New in extension after goal
There is clarity in the box of the Reds - and at the latest since this Wednesday (May 20). Because captain Manuel Neuer has extended his contract with the German record champions. The national keeper will be in Munich's box by 2023 - so on Saturday against Eintracht .
FC Bayern Munich lineup against Eintracht Frankfurt: trust in the defensive alliance
Against Union Berlin, Flick relied on the series of four Benjamin Pavard - Jerome Boateng - David Alaba - Alphonso Davies . After the game, the coach said: “The current situation is that there is trust in the back four. You did that very well in training. You need a certain degree of stability after this long break. ”There is therefore a lot to be said for the fact that this staff will also be trusted against Frankfurt. 80 million man Lucas Hernandez remains the bank again. Niklas Süle is a winner of the Corona break after his protracted injury, but is not yet eligible for the game against the SBU. On loan from Alvaro Odriozola is not an option.
FC Bayern Munich lineup against Eintracht Frankfurt: midfield axis convinced recently
Thiago and Joshua Kimmich shone against Union in midfield, pulled the strings and directed the offensive game of the Munich . At the end of the game, both had - almost traditionally - more than 100 ball actions. Against Frankfurt will Flick therefore go with that midfield duo at the start. Corentin Tolisso is still injured. Whether Javi Martinez , who missed the Union game due to a lack of training, is enough for a squad is open. On Friday in the press conference, trainer Hansi Flick revealed that the use of Thiago is questionable due to muscular problems. Martinez will surely fail.
In contrast, the decision in the more offensive midfield row will be exciting. Three wingers push for a bet. Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and Ivan Perisic, whose future is still uncertain. We assume that Gnabry will be able to play from the start, as against Berlin, and we suspect that Coman will be in the first eleven of the German record champions *. Background: Frankfurt is very vulnerable to the outside positions. Because Erik Durm was rarely convincing, Evan Ndicka and Almamy Toure, two internally trained central defenders, played on the outside. In addition, defensive protection is missing at least on the right wing. Here the quick Coman and Gnabry can hurt the Hessen. According to Flick, it looks good with Gnabry, but it is not yet certain whether he can play.
Who can play in the central offensive midfield? Philippe Coutinho is still out, so Flick has to choose between Leon Goretzka and Thomas Müller . Both were still in the starting XI against the Iron. We suspect that someone has to give way for Coman to get more force over the wings. Since Müller gave Union the more striking part, we see the original Bavarian in the first eleven. Goretzka is now on the bench, which also includes Michael Cuisance . After his short assignment on Sunday, the Frenchman can at least hope for game minutes as a joker.

Now Lewandowski is fit again and therefore back in the starting XI without question. Especially since the Pole still has a big goal: cracking the 40 goal mark. His trainer at least believes that: "Everything is possible". The 31-year-old currently has 26 hits. Will there be more goals against Frankfurt? We accompany the duel in the live ticker.
