FC Bayern München will be keen to get straight back to winning ways this weekend when they travel to face Eintracht Frankfurt in their intimidating Commerzbank-Arena on Saturday (kick-off 15:30CEST/13:30GMT).
After going down 1-0 to Club Atletico de Madrid in the UEFA Champions League group stage, Bayern dropped points for the first time in the Bundesliga under Carlo Ancelotti in their 1-1 draw with 1. FC Köln last time out. The defending champions still top the table, though, ahead of Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund who meet on Friday night.
Despite losing 1-0 to SC Freiburg on Matchday 6, Frankfurt are not too far adrift of the clutch of sides vying to keep pace with Ancelotti's Bayern. The Eagles are much improved since last season's relegation near-miss, and go into Saturday's clash unbeaten in their last six competitive matches on home turf dating back to April 2016.
