Bayern Munich continued their winning ways when the Bundesliga returned by beating Union Berlin 2-0 in a comfortable performance. The Bavarians remain the only unbeaten top-flight German club in 2020 and their three points last week keeps them four adrift of rivals Borussia Dortmund, who they meet next week.
Robert Lewandowksi was once again on the scoresheet in the win over in Berlin, as the Polish striker netted his 26th from the 26 Bundesliga games. Benjamin Pavard also continued his impressive goalscoring feat this seasons by sealing the deal for the champions in the second half - the defender now has four league goals in Bayern colours.
Although the victory over Union wasn't as scintillating as Dortmund's 4-0 rout over Schalke, the league leaders showed no signs of rust from the break and continue to look like the team to beat.
Now, statistically, they are in the best form in their entire Bundesliga history under Hand-Dieter Flick. With the German at the helm, Bayern are averaging club record 3.1 goals per game, which thus far equals to 50 goals in 16 games.
As a result, betting on another high scoring result from Bayern isn't such a bad choice. Serge Gnabry has 11 Bundesliga goals this campaign, and he is boosted to 10/1 to score from outside the area. Elsewhere, you can get the German and Lewandowski both to bag at a tempting 15/8, or perhaps having Thomas Muller and Lewandowski score at 9/4 is instead a better choice - Muller has been involved in 25 goals this season.
Their opponents, Eintracht Frankfurt, may come into this one in a mixed mindset. Whilst they were the clear second-best in the 3-1 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach last week, Frankfurt are one of only four teams to beat Bayern this season.
The Eagles thrashed the champions 5-1 on a historic day for the club, as this sparked the end of the managerial reign for Niko Kovac, as well as marking their best ever result over Bayern. However, despite that 5-1 victory moving Frankfurt up to fifth back in November, the club have since been on the outskirts of the tense relegation battle. Now, they sit just five from the drop zone.
Odds are a very high 16/1 for the 13th-placed side to win, whilst a draw is probably a healthier bet for the outright result at 13/2.
