Bayern Munich travel to Frankfurt off the back of three successive wins across all competitions, after a blip in form that saw them fail to win either of their previous two.
Eintracht Frankfurt have also been in good form of late, losing just one of their last eight games across all competitions.
However, all three wins have been by the odd goal as Bayern have stumbled a little of late, failing to brush opponents aside with their usual efficiency.
In fact, Bayern have won just one of their last seven games by more than one goal - their sensational 7-2 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League.
All four of their wins before that run were by a three-goal margin at least, scoring 16 goals in those games and conceding just once.
Robert Lewandowski has been in fine goalscoring form, however, despite the slight dip in form of late, breaking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Bundesliga record by scoring in each of the first nine league games of the campaign.
The Polish striker already has a hugely impressive tally of 19 goals for the season across all competitions, despite having played just 15 games.
Eintracht Frankfurt beat St Pauli 2-1 away from home in their last game, with Bas Dost grabbing a brace, and have enjoyed a positive run of form after a mixed start to the campaign.
Last season's Europa League semi-finalists have lost just once in their last eight games in all competitions but have kept just two clean sheets in that period.
Eintracht Frankfurt form: WDWWLW
Bayern Munich form: WLDWWW
Meanwhile, long-term absentees are beginning to pile up with, Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Sule's injuries leaving the team light on defensive options, while Jann-Fiete Arp is also sidelined with a broken wrist.
Eintracht Frankfurt possible starting lineup:
Ronnow; N'Dicka, Abraham, Hinteregger; Fernandes; Chandler, Sow, Kohr, Rode; Kamada, Paciencia
Bayern possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Kimmich, Pavard, Boateng, Davies; Thiago, Giretzka; Gnabry, Coutinho, Coman; Lewandowski
We say: Eintracht Frankfurt 1-2 Bayern Munich
Given the depleted nature of both sides, this could be a close-run affair, but Bayern are always favourites in Germany and their quality should see them pick up three crucial points.
