Bayern Munich have been here before and should be well-prepared for their tune-up match against Eintracht Frankfurt today, with the eyes of the football world already anticipating their gargantuan clash with Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday. The match with Frankfurt is today at 12:30 p.m. ET on FS1 and FOX Sports Deportes.
The holders are massive favorites at -715 on the three-way line, and are receiving 90% of the money and tickets at DraftKings Sportsbook. A draw at +700 is good for only 3% of bets and 4% of handle, while Frankfurt to pull one of the great upsets in club history are +1400 and receiving 7% of the individual wagers and 6% of the cash.
Munich will have a freshly re-signed goalkeeper in Manuel Neuer for the match, as perhaps the best in the world extended his deal through 2023 this week. That the German giants have enough budget and support to keep their star-filled side together even in the wake of a global pandemic and its economic impacts shows the size of Der FCB.
Though Bayern was pedestrian in their 2-0 win over 1. Union Berlin in the opener, a return to Allianz Arena against a mid-table side might just be what the club needs ahead of the Quarantine Super Bowl at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.
