Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich team prepare to face Frankfurt, who are bottom of the table following their defeat in the opening game of the season. Frankfurt were defeated 6-1 on the opening game against Hertha Berlin, and are the favourites to go down this season according to the online betting markets.
It is a result that puts the Bayern Munich vs Frankfurt match as a very difficult encounter according to Guardiola. He has said that the bottom team will be extremely pumped up for this encounter and they will be looking to get revenge.
This is also the first away match for Bayern Munich. Away matches used to be one of the problems for Guardiola at Barcelona and he hopes that his team gets three points to maintain their 100% start to the season. The tennis score is one of the worst problems for Bayern Munich according to Guardiola. Since this is only the second match of the season, they will be looking to put in a good performance especially in front of their own fans. Bayern managed to win their opening match against Borussia Mönchengladbach quite comfortably.
However, the defeat against archrivals Borussia Dortmund in the opening game of the German season still lingers in the mind of Guardiola. Guardiola could have the services of Mario Gotze, who will be looking at a good debut for his new team.
"That result is the worst thing for us. They are going to be very focused and will have worked very hard. I am always concerned by our opponents, and have been throughout my entire career. It's my job to analyse their strengths and weaknesses - that's why I am a coach. If he's fit, then he's got a good chance of playing. He's getting there step by step and he will be coming to Frankfurt with us," said Guardiola.
He said that he will make a last minute decision on Gotze.
