Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt German Cup Betting Tips
Bayern Munich’s last title in the DFB Pokal came in 2016 when they beat rivals Borussia Dortmund in a penalty shootout. It has been another dominant season for Bayern Munich on the domestic front having won the league title with relative ease and they now stand on the brink of completing a domestic double. Bayern did lose their last game in a 1-4 defeat at home against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. But that was an end of season nothing game for them. Bayern’s route to the final this season has not actually been all that easy because they had to come through a couple of tough ties early on. They banked an easy 5-0 win over Chemnitzer in the first round and then they had to go up against RB Leipzig in the second round. After a 1-1 tie at the end of extra time, Bayern Munich squeezed through 5-4 in a penalty shootout. Next up for them in the cup was Borussia Dortmund, the reigning DFB Pokal champions. That was another tight affair for Bayern Munich but they battled through with a 2-1 success.
Things did get easier for them in the latter rounds as they put six goals past both SC Paderborn and Bayer Leverkusen to reach the final. Bayern Munich are heavy odds-on favourites to lift the title on the weekend and in the bet365 correct score market a Bayern Munich 2-0 result is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 18th, 2018). The current top scorer in this season’s DFB Pokal is Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, who incidentally was top scorer in last season’s tournament even though the club missed out on the title. Lewandowski heads up the goalscorer markets in the 2018 German Cup final betting. In the two league meetings between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt this season, Bayern won both of them, leaving them on a three-match winning streak against their opponents. They are unbeaten in their last 14 meetings with Frankfurt across all competitions. Bayern have scored at least two goals in three of the last four meetings and have 10 clean sheets in their last dozen games against them.
Bayern Munich to win to nil is at 11/10 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 18th, 2018). It has been another good cup run from Eintracht Frankfurt who made final last season but missed out on success. That was their seventh DFB Pokal final appearance having won four of those. The last title they got came all the way back in 1988 and they are going to have a hard time getting their hands on the silverware this season. While Bayern Munich had to get past tough clubs along the way to the final, Eintracht Frankfurt had a much easier route. Their two big challenges really came in the quarter-finals where they strolled to a win over Mainz before edging Schalke in the semi finals 1-0. It means that Eintracht Frankfurt have taken four clean sheets in their five cup matches this season. Eintracht Frankfurt finished eighth in the Bundesliga and they finished out of form as well, losing four of their last five games. Eintracht Frankfurt have conceded at least three goals in three of their last five games played and given how ruthless Bayern Munich generally are in situations like this over 3.5 goals is at 11/10 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 18th, 2018).
Who will win – Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt German Cup Predictions
They should be another routine title for Bayern Munich as their opponents are not carrying any kind of form at the moment. It is worth backing Bayern to get a decent return of goals on the board and therefore back a Bayern Munich win and over 3.5 goals.
