On Saturday (12:30p.m.) FC Bayern face Eintracht Frankfurt for the 97th time in Bundesliga history. The Munich side have won 53 of these games (22 defeats and 22 draws). With these facts you will be well prepared for the latest edition of this classic.
1. Flick brings goals
Last matchday coach Hansi Flick celebrated his team's 50th goal in just his 16th Bundesliga game - earlier than any coach before him!
2. Neuer's new record
Manuel Neuer is king of the Weiße Weste: Our captain set a new record in the 2-0 win over Union Berlin as he became the first goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet against 35 different teams in the Bundesliga
3. Strong home run against Frankfurt
FCB have won the last ten Bundesliga home games against Eintracht Frankfurt - their longest home winning streak against a current Bundesliga team.
4. Welcome visitors to the arena
The record champions have won twelve out of 13 games (1 draw) against Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena, outscoring the opponents 40-6. Only against VfL Wolfsburg have FCB celebrated more wins in the stadium (14).
5. Record-breaking points tally
After 26 matchdays, Bayern are four points clear at the top of the table. FCB have never given up a lead of at least four points so late in a season!
In the history of the Bundesliga, only two teams have picked up more points in the first nine second half games than the current FC Bayern side (25): Bayern in 2013/14 under Pep Guardiola and in 2012/13 under Jupp Heynckes (27 each).
6. Outstanding form
FCB have won their last seven competitive games and picked up 34 out of a possible 36 points in the past twelve matchdays - only dropping points in the 0-0 draw against RB Leipzig on matchday 21.
7. Forgettable season for Eintracht
After 25 games in a Bundesliga season, Frankfurt only had more defeats in 1999/2000 (14) than they currently do (13). Eintracht are the weakest away side this season with only seven points and losing nine of their twelve away games so far in 2019/20. Frankfurt are the only side who have failed to keep a clean sheet away from home this season.
