FRK vs BAY Dream11 prediction

Bayern will start as favourites against Eintracht Frankfurt. Bayern, the German football champions, have won 56 of the 102 Bundesliga matches between the two teams.

However, they will look to improve their record at Frankfurt, where they have lost 20 times in 51 visits.

FRK vs BAY Dream11 team tips for Bundesliga 2022-23

Top tip: Best forward

With Robert Lewandowski no longer headlining the Bayern Munich attack, all eyes will be on summer signing Sadio Mane to open his Bundesliga account in style. With 193 career goals, the Senegal attacker will begin his Bayern stint at a price of 9.5 credits.

Top tip: Best midfielder 

Mario Gotze is a top pick for this contest. The former Bayern midfielder returned to the Bundesliga with a summer transfer to Eintracht and will hope to rediscover the form that once labelled him the ‘German Messi’. With 57 goals and 61 assists in his German top-flight career, Gotze - at 8.5 credits - could use his immense experience to dominate and create goal-scoring opportunities in the midfield engine room for Die Adler.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

At 9.0 credits, Bayern wing-back Alphonso Davies is an excellent selection as a defender for this match. The Canadian international is known for his sheer attacking prowess and will look to forge a strong partnership with Sadio Mane in the opposition’s half.

For a goalkeeper, Kevin Trapp will be slightly favoured over Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer. The former PSG stopper will constantly be on his toes to keep the likes of Sadio Mane and Thomas Muller from scoring goals, and he is priced at 8.5 credits.

FRK vs BAY probable playing XI

FRK playing XI (probable): Kevin Trapp; Evan Ndicka, Tuta, Almamy Toure; Filip Kostic, Ansgar Knauff, Sebastian Rode, Djibril Sow; Mario Gotze, Jesper Lindstrom, Lucas Alario

BAY playing XI (probable): Manuel Neuer (captain and goalkeeper); Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, Alphonso Davies; Marcel Sabitzer, Joshua Kimmich; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Jamal Musiala; Sadio Mane
