Their wings clipped as a result of just one win in their previous six Bundesliga outings, Eintracht eyed the visit of the league leaders and defending champions as the perfect motivation for lift off. The Eagles won the corresponding fixture against Bayern 2-1 back in October, and Oliver Glasner’s side soon issued their intentions of earning a repeat result at Deutsche Bank Park.

Jesper Lindstrom sniffed for an opening in the early stages, while Benjamin Pavard and Jamal Musiala spurned opportunities at the other end. It was Filip Kostic, though, who would spurn the game’s first big chance, the Serbian prodding wide when expertly played in by Lindstrom. The action quickly swinging to the other end in an already highly entertaining encounter, the hosts were almost made to pay for their previous miss when an unmarked Musiala somehow headed over from a central position. The end-to-end entertainment continued apace as Sven Ulreich denied Kostic before Kevin Trapp’s palms were warmed by Kingsley Coman’s stinging drive. Trapp was again on point to deny Joshua Kimmich and the ‘keeper was subsequently left bloodied when Coman’s follow up caught him flush in the face.

Eyeing substitute Sane’s attacking run, Kimmich sent a delicious assist through the Eintracht defence which Bayern’s No.10 met with a touch to control before applying a calm finish into the corner. A frantic finale ensued, but the men in red held out for a hard-fought three points.

Sane has scored seven Bundesliga goals this season. He managed six in the entire 2020/21 campaign.

It was Sane’s 24th Bundesliga goal in all, and only his third with his right foot.
The 26-year-old has now scored three times against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Frankfurt have already lost five games at home this season, including the last four in-a-row, equalling a club record.

FC Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski said, “We played well defensively and had the game under control. We scored one goal, you can’t always score four or five. We had to fight to pick up all three points. Today we played well. That was important. We knew coming into the game that it’s always difficult here. That’s great. Congratulations to the whole team.”


After the match FC Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said ,”The victory was very valuable. The next five games in the Bundesliga are very important. I’m very satisfied with the first half. Not scoring goals was the only missing piece. We played well. In the second half we should have scored earlier. Then we scored the goal and it got scrappy. Overall, if you look at the last few games, I think this game was a step in the right direction. I’m satisfied. We always had good control and did so very, very well for long stretches.”
