Bayern Munich will be looking to move another step closer to winning an eighth Bundesliga title on the spin when they play host to Eintracht Frankfurt this weekend in the first closed-door game at the Allianz Arena this season.
Bayern saw off Union Berlin 2-0 on Sunday to stretch their undefeated league run to 12 and remain four points ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund.
Eintracht were condemned to their fourth Bundesliga loss in a row after going down 3-1 to Borussia Monchengladbach and slipped to 13th in the table on 28 points, just five points above Fortuna Dusseldorf who occupy the relegation play-off place in 16th.
Here are 3 things to look forward to as Bayern Munich host Eintract Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
3. Revenge on the cards for Bayern
The reverse fixture, played at the Commerzbank-Arena in November last year, ended in a shock 5-1 win for Eintracht Frankfurt, in what proved to be the last game as the Bayern Munich manager for Niko Kovac.
Now, armed with confidence after their opening day win, Bayern will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table and continuing their 12-match unbeaten run in the league. Bayern are also on a 10-game winning streak at home to Frankfurt, which is their longest such run against any side currently in the division.
2. Can the visitors do the double?
Frankfurt have lost their last three games, each in a different competition. Adi Hutter's side have slipped from ninth to 13th in the space of five games and are only five points above the relegation playoff spot.
To make matters worse for Frankfurt, they have the worst away record in the Bundesliga this term and have lost each of their last 10 league trips to the Allianz Arena. Hutter has seen his men concede 13 goals in their last four Bundesliga matches and score just two themselves during that run.
1. Bayern's title quest continues
Hansi Flick's side will be hoping to move further clear in the race for the Bundesliga title with the chasing pack of Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig in close pursuit. Bayern's home ground is rarely ever not packed to the rafters, so the absence of fans will present a new challenge for the Bundesliga leaders.
Bayern are the only unbeaten Bundesliga team in 2020, collecting 34 from a possible 36 points. And, Eintracht Frankfurt are one of only four teams to have beaten Bayern this season. But with Eintracht struggling in the bottom half of the table and Bayern putting together an astonishing unbeaten run, it seems unlikely that will distract them from their quest for an eighth consecutive league title.
