Bundesliga: Frankfurt Hold Bayern To 1-1 Draw In Third Consecutive Match

Bundesliga: Frankfurt Hold Bayern To 1-1 Draw In Third Conse

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich's pursuit of a record-extending 11th straight Bundesliga title suffered a setback as they were held to a 1-1 draw against visiting Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

The Bavarians dropped points for the third consecutive game with the same scoreline and leaving them with a slender one-point lead in the league table.

Despite being the reigning champions and one of the strongest sides in the league, Bayern Munich were not able to secure a win against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, settling for a 1-1 draw instead.

This marks the third consecutive game in which they have dropped points, having also drawn 1-1 against RB Leipzig and Cologne following the winter break.

The German champions took the lead in the first half, with Leroy Sane scoring from a Thomas Mueller assist in the 34th minute. However, their lead was short-lived as Eintracht's Randal Kolo Muani equalized in the 69th minute, with a well-placed shot that beat Bayern's Dayot Upamecano. Despite having several chances to score before the equalizer, Bayern were unable to find the back of the net and were forced to settle for a draw.

Despite this setback, Bayern still hold a one-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga, with 36 points. Second-placed Union Berlin, who beat Hertha 2-0 in the Berlin derby, have 35 points, while RB Leipzig sit in third place with 32 points following their 2-1 win over VfB Stuttgart on Friday. Eintracht Frankfurt, meanwhile, sit in fifth place with 32 points.

It's worth noting that Bayern face Paris St Germain in the Champions League Round of 16 on February 14, so they will be hoping to turn their fortunes around and secure a win in that match. Regardless, this draw against Eintracht Frankfurt serves as a reminder that even the strongest teams can falter and drop points.
