Defending champions and current league leaders Bayern Munich take on relegation battlers Eintracht Frankfurt in the Allianz Arena, hoping to hold on to their 5 goal lead at the top of the table.

The Bavarian giants have dropped as many as 5 points over their last 4 games in the league, having dominated it for the entire season so far. They will be looking to rest a few players with Benfica awaiting them in the Champions League in midweek.

Their opponents Eintracht Frankfurt on the other hand, are 2nd from bottom, having just overcome an 8-game winless run in their last league game against bottom side Hannover 96.

The win sees Frankfurt draw level on points in the table with Hoffenheim and Augsburg, with Darmstadt and Werder Bremen just a point away.
