Bayern Munich have traveled to Frankfurt for their Matchday 10 clash against their rivals Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern recorded an inspiring 2-1 comeback against Bochum on Tuesday and as of now, they are in the second place of the table.

On the other side the Eagles suffered a 4-2 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Monday and now they are sitting 10th on the table.  

Bayern have achieved 18 points so far while Eintracht Frankfurt have collected 14.

In the case of the absentees, it has to be said that Bayern Munich will start the match without Javi Martinez, while Ivan Perisic is a doubt through illness. Jerome Boateng is also a doubt but could be able to start. This is while Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Sule will still be absent, while Jann-Fiete Arp is also sidelined due to a broken wrist.

This is while for Frankfurt, the list is even longer, with Marco Russ, Danny da Costa, and Kevin Trapp all among the list of absentees, while the likes of Makoto Hasebe, Nicolai Muller and Almamy Toure are doubts.
