Without the meeting next Tuesday against Borussia Dortmund decentralizing them in the least, nor the victories of the Borussers and Leverkusen, the Bayern Munich made good forecasts and clearly defeated Eintracht Frankfurt (5-2) in an encounter dominated by the pupils of Flick from start to finish and in which the Bavarian punch and the exaggerated defensive fragility of the Eintracht were evident in the silence of the Allianz Arena.

Goretzka, Muller, Davies, Lewandowski and Hinteregger, on their own goal, were the Bayern scorers on a placid afternoon in which they needed 17 minutes to open the can, but they accumulated more than twenty shots on the goal of an unattended Kevin Trapp. Only three minutes of relaxation, between 52 and 55, led to two goals from the Austrian center back Hinteregger, who first scored – twice – in the correct goal, as the make-up for an expected win from Bayern.

Boasting a massive punch, Bayern is a predictable team, and better with spaces than without them, but an offensive steamroller if the rival gives him the opportunity. With Muller in a stellar plan and the invaluable collaboration of assets like Kimmich or Alphonso Davies, the pupils of Hans-Dieter Flick showed that their legs don’t weigh the least in this return from competition after the coronavirus.

The Bavarian side continues in this way as the leader of the Bundesliga, unaffected by the victories of Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, the latter against a team in progress like Borussia Monchengladbach. Waiting for what Leipzig does this Sunday, the eyes as far as the fight for the Bundesliga is concerned, will be summoned to the duel next Tuesday between Bayern and Dortmund, in which many of the ballots for the championship that are still pending can be decided.
