No Extra Motivation Needed: FCB v SGE Match Preview!
The Eagles meet FC Bayern München on Saturday (15.30 CET) at the Allianz Arena. Against the Bundesliga's record champions every player is naturally highly motivated.
FC Bayern München - Eintracht Frankfurt
- Kick-off: Saturday (11 March 2017), 15.30 CET
- Venue: Allianz Arena (75,000 seats)
- Referee: Markus Schmidt (141 BL games)
Bayern München are on a run. The Bundesliga's record champions have won their last four games with a difference of at least three goals (8-0 v HSV, 3-0 v Schalke and Köln, 5-1 v Arsenal London). Eintracht lost their last league matches against Freiburg and Berlin, but made the jump to the DFB-Cup semi-finals after a 1-0 win against Bielefeld. Carlo Ancelotti's squad has become increasingly stronger throughout the season. This does not mean, however, that Eintracht are going to put up the white flag in Munich. While every series must come to an end, SGE are extra-motivated to end their loosing and FCB's winning streak. At their last encounter the Eagles managed to keep one point in Frankfurt after a courageous performance leading to a 2-2 draw.
The 75,000 seats at the Allianz Arena are usually sold out when FCB are playing. This time is no different. On Frankfurt's side 5,839 fans follow the Eagles to Munich.
