Watch: De Ligt: "We're still searching for our form"
Watch: Götze: "We fight for every point"
It's all over. Bayern have drawn their third game in a row and the Bundesliga table is looking very interesting as a result. The hosts led through a Leroy Sane opener in the first half but Eintracht battled back and scored through who else but Randal Kolo Muani. Bayern top the standings by a point from Union Berlin. Eintracht are in fifth, five points behind the Bavarians.
Oooh, Borre swipes at goal from the right and watches to see his effort take a nick off a Bayern defender and fly past the far post.
LATE BAYERN SUB
It's one more change for Bayern, who bring Marcel Sabitzer into the mix. Kimmich then powers a shot over the top.

Müller rises to meet Gnabry's looping pass but the Bayern No. 25 can't get enough purchase on the ball and Trapp takes.
GÖTZE MAKES WAY
Götze comes off, looking as though he's taken part in the battle of his life. The Eintracht midfielder has put in a shift here.
Eintracht lash one goalwards - Sow swinging a leg - and the ball bounces off Kolo Muani. Kamada can't quite control the loose ball and the chance is gone.
BAYERN'S X-GOALS EDGE
Borre batters into the back of Davies and the referee brings out the yellow card.
In their three matches so far in 2023, Eintracht have had six shots on target, five of which have gone in! The Eagles scored with their first shot on target today.
Julian Nagelsmann is not a happy camper. The Bayern boss - visibly frustrated - brings Mathys Tel on for Choupo-Moting.
Musiala has a pop at one end which goes over while Sow's subsequent strike is stopped by Sommer.
DEADLY KOLO MUANI
Randal Kolo Muani now has seven goals and 10 assists for the season! Incredible numbers from the French World Cup runner-up.
Bayern respond to that equaliser by bringing Gnabry and Gravenberch into the game. Coman and Sane are off.
FRANKFURT LEVEL !
What a goal! Kolo Muani scores against Bayern for the second time this season. A breakaway for Eintracht sees the French forward feed Kamada and then take the ball back. Inside the area on the left, Kolo Muani holds off Upamecano and sends the ball across Sommer and into the far corner.
Randal Kolo Muani
Kamada draws raised hands from Oliver Glasner on the touchline. The Eintracht sub stepped up to take a corner and then slipped right before contact, sending the ball trickling wide.
NEXT GOAL CRUCIAL?
Try as they might, Eintracht just can't find daylight in the Bayern defence. Coach Glasner throws Borre and Kamada into the mix to try and change that. Lindström and Rode make way.
Eintracht are furious. The visitors thought there was a foul in a build up to one of their moves. Instead, Bayern broke and went close through a Choupo-Moting back-heel and then Musiala's blocked shot.
Leroy Sané Djibril Sow
Müller lands an unintentional stamp on Sow, who needs some attention. Müller is straight down to check on the Eintracht player, who will be able to carry on.
Upamecano comes through the back of Mario Götze, who had just flicked the ball past the big defender, and goes into the book. Both Bayern centre backs are on yellow cards now.
EAGLES OFF TARGET
NDICKA HAS A POP
Knauff leads the Eintracht break and Lindström wins a corner, which he also takes. Ndicka goes for the spectacular overhead kick from the set piece and the ball flies wide.
FCB PASS SPECIALISTS
Away we go in the second half, Bayern getting us back underway.
A very entertaining half ends with Bayern in front, Leroy Sane with the game's only goal thus far. This one is still very much alive so don't go anywhere!
Just for a moment, it looked like Lindström might storm away towards the Bayern goal but the Dane lost control at a crucial moment. We'll have two minutes of added time at the end of this first half.
Musiala draws the oohs and ahhs from the home crowd with a sublime piece of skill. Sane's subsequent strike is easily gathered by Trapp.
GOAL KINGS BAYERN
Bayern have scored at least one goal in their last 49 consecutive Bundesliga home games. The last time today's hosts failed to score at home will be three years ago in February, when Leipzig paid a visit to the Allianz Arena.
Upamecano should really have made it 2-0. The defender gets to the back post unmarked but never gets his attempted header right and the ball bounces wide.
There it is. A long Bayern build up leads to Stanisic feeding Müller on the right. The veteran attacker crosses low for Sane, who wellies one low and under the outstretched hand of Trapp. Good goal.
Review Previous foul?
Big moment for Bayern. Kimmich's long-range shot is parried by Trapp, who stops again from Müller on the rebound.
Choupo-Moting plays a one-two with Müller, the Bayern forward cutting back for the onrushing Raumdeuter. Tuta gets in the way of Müller's subsequent dig at goal.
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
Bayern were already on their way to victory by this stage in the corresponding fixture in Frankfurt at the start of the season. Today's hosts eventually won that game 6-1. This game has an altogether different feel.
Kolo Muani bounds through on the left and Sommer wants to come and meet the French forward. Bayern's new shot stopper has his eye on the ball but he misses it and downs Kolo Muani outside the area. That's a booking for the goalkeeper.
Lindström snatches a loose ball in the final third and looks to run at the Bayern defence. The Dane tries to do too much in the end and Bayern usher him away from danger.
Müller picks out Choupo-Moting who wins a corner off the alert Hasebe. The subsequent set piece comes to nothing.
SOW AND OVER
Rode accepts Kolo Muani's pass from the flank and the 32-year-old is in. His square pass has too much pace for Sow, who can only deflect over.
PASS MASTER MÜLLER
Randal Kolo Muani
KOLO MUANI MISCONTROLS
Kamada's corner finds Kolo-Muani, who can't make solid enough contact to trouble Sommer. That was potentially a very good chance for the visitors.
HOSTS ON THE UP
Bayern are beginning to look very dangerous. Musiala is almost in after a poor Eintracht defensive header allows the 19-year-old to have a look. Then Kimmich picks out a Sane's run around the back with a flighted pass. Kevin Trapp needed to be alert to claim the ball off his line.
DE LIGT BOOKED
De Ligt slips in posssession and Rode pounces. The Bayern man tugs back Eintracht's captain who is looking to race away. Yellow card for De ligt.
BAYERN ON THE BALL
This Matchday 18 encounter has started at a good pace. Bayern are bossing it in terms of early possession but Frankfurt are well set up to counter.
Mario Götze is already looking for openings at his old home in the early seconds. Will the 2014 FIFA World Cup winner end up playing a big role here?
Away we go in Bavaria! Eintracht get the ball rolling and it's game on.
TEAMS OUT !
Both Bayern and Eintracht have made their way out onto the pitch. The players acknowledge the fans and now it's time for the handshakes ...
The Allianz Arena is buzzing as we edge ever closer to go time. Will Bayern manage to bag their first win of 2023 or can Eintracht stun the hosts and take all three points, just as they did here in October 2021? We're soon to start finding out!
GOAL KINGS ON SHOW
Lest we forget, we've got the Bundesliga's leading players in terms of goal involvements going head to head here. Bayern's Jamal Musiala has nine goals and six assists to his name this term while Frankfurt's Randal Kolo-Muani is on six goals and 10 assists for the campaign.

BAYERN TO GET PHYSICAL
"MAKE LIFE DIFFICULT"
Here's Eintracht coach Oliver Glasner on what his side need to do at the Allianz Arena this evening: "We have to be compact and exploit the spaces afforded to us by winning our running duels and developing a goal threat. They usually commit a lot of players forward, which creates spaces for us. We want to make life difficult for them with the qualities at our disposal."
TALE OF THE TAPE
Eintracht picked up maximum points on their last visit to Munich back in October 2021. That was a rare win for the Eagles at the home of the record champions, however. Bayern have had more home triumphs against Eintracht in Germany's top flight than against any other club, today's hosts winning 41 of 51 league encounters between the sides in Bavaria.
