Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form
After their eighth-place finish in the Bundesliga last season, no-one was really expecting Eintracht Frankfurt to get the better of Bayern Munich in the final of the German Cup. But they got an early goal on the board to settle them in the final through Ante Rebic and even though Bayern equalised after halftime, Frankfurt got themselves over the finish line with a couple of late goals.
They have a new manager in Adi Hutter and he pretty much has a full strength squad to select from. It is the early season and we are going to back both teams to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on 10th August, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.) for the Super Cup. This will be just their second appearance in the DFL Supercup after having finished runners-up in 1988. Interestingly of the previous editions of the DFL Supercup, the DFB Pokal winners playing in the match, have won it just four times.
Bayern Munich News and Form
Bayern Munich are the most successful side ever in the history of the DFL Super Cup having won it six times before and having finished runner-up five times as well. They have won it for the last two seasons as well and Frankfurt are going to have a hard time knocking them off their perch. Bayern had a change of manager over the summer as well with Niko Kovac taking over.
There are few players who are doubtful like James Rodriguez, Sandro Wagner and Jerome Boateng but Bayern have a lot more depth at their disposal than their opponents for the weekend. The Bavarians won the Bundesliga by a whopping 21 points over Schalke last season and are backed heavily to do the same this season. The first goalscorer favourite is Robert Lewandowski at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on 10th August, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.) which is always worth a flutter. There could be plenty in this for the reigning champions against a changed Frankfurt outfit.
