Why you should back Bayern Munich
Despite the departure of Robert Lewandowski, who led Bundesliga with 35 goals last season but signed with Barcelona last month, Bayern still boasts a potent offense. The club posted a 6-2 victory against DC United in a friendly on July 20 and defeated RB Leipzig 5-3 in the Supercup final 10 days later. Winger Serge Gnabry, who was second on the team last campaign with 14 goals, tallied in each contest.
Since leaving the English Premier League for Bundesliga in 2016, the 27-year-old Gnabry has reached double figures in goals in six straight seasons, including the last four with Bayern. To help make up for the loss of Lewandowski, the FCB added Sadio Mane from Liverpool, where he netted 90 tallies over the last six campaigns. The 30-year-old forward from Senegal also scored against both DC United and RB Leipzig last month.
Why you should back Eintracht Frankfurt
Despite struggling in Bundesliga last season, the Eagles excelled in the Europa League, winning the title for the second time in club history and first since 1980. Eintracht knocked off Real Betis, Barcelona and West Ham United before defeating Rangers on penalty kicks in the final on May 18. Eintracht has followed that triumph by outscoring its opponents 23-1 while posting four wins and a draw in five friendlies last month before registering a 4-0 victory against FC Magdeburg on Monday in the first round of the DFB Pokal.
Danish winger Jesper Lindstrom and Argentinian striker Lucas Alario, who signed a two-year contract in June after having spent the last five campaigns with Leverkusen, have scored in three straight matches and four of Eintracht’s last six. The 22-year-old Lindstrom was second on the team last season with five goals and added four assists while Japanese midfielder Daichi Kamada, who tallied twice against FC Magdeburg, respectively recorded four and three. Rafael Borre, a 26-year-old Colombian forward, recorded a team-high eight goals in his first Bundesliga season with the Eagles and scored in three of their final four Europa League playoff matches.
