Second-String Bayern Too Strong Frankfurt
German Bundesliga Report: Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt 28 April 2018
Result: Bayern Munich 4-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: 28 April 2018
Venue: Allianz Arena
Bayern Munich proved too strong for Eintracht Frankfurt as they romped to a 4-1 win at the Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon.
The Bavarians have already wrapped up the Bundesliga title, meaning head coach Jupp Heynckes could afford to rest some star players ahead of their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg tie against Real Madrid on Wednesday, where they trail 2-1.
One player who won't be featuring at the Santiago Bernabeu is Jerome Boateng, who has been ruled out for the rest of the domestic season.
The Bavarians dominated the opening half this weekend but they struggled to carve out clear-cut chances in the opening 30 minutes.
The hosts eventually broke the deadlock on 40 minutes as Sandro Wanger teed up Niklas Dorsch for the simple finish.
With Bayern struggling to break down the visitors consistently, Thiago Alcantara was introduced 10 minutes into the second half.
Bayern's second goal eventually arrived on 72 minutes as Sebastian Rudy's cross was turned home by Wagner.
Frankfurt pulled a goal back four minutes later as Sébastien Haller turned home Danny Vieira da Costa's cross.
