Three more points for Bayern Munich, just a few days after their impressive performance and big 3-1 win over PSG in the Champions League.
Die Rotten beat Eintracht 1-0 in Frankfurt thanks to an Erturo Vidal header in the 20th minute. They didn’t manage to finish the game off early, had to stay extra focused in the last minutes, but Jupp Heynckes looked perfectly satisfied with his team, explaining why they couldn’t have looked as great as against Paris Saint-Germain just a few earlier.
Thomas Muller is only just back after a six-week injury break. Franck Ribery was out for nine weeks, only playing his second game and has not played a full 90 minutes. I had to take off Kingsley Coman as well because he was still carrying an injury from Tuesday
the Bayern coach told reporters, talking about how he came up with the lineup and his choices during the 90 minutes.
I also did not allow Robert Lewandowski to start because he is still battling a problem with his patella. David Alaba was also injured for a long time and recently had another two-week break
the German coach said, concluding
I know what is and what isn’t possible, but it’s vital to win these type of games. We made five changes plus we had Tom Starke in goal today. Of course, we have a very good squad but with these type of problems, you cannot expect to perform like we did on Tuesday against PSG.
