The German football will open up the new season with the DFL-Super Cup match between the winners of the 2017-18 DFB-Pokal Eintracht Frankfurt and the winners of the 2017-18 Bundesliga and two-time defending champions of the DFL-Super Cup Bayern Munich. Best online betting sites in Germany expect Kovac to help Bayern Munich win their first title in the new season, after denying them the double in DFB-Pokal final by a shocking (3-1) victory with his former team Eintracht Frankfurt. Before heading to our German Super Cup 2018 preview, we recommend you to visit Bwin Sportsbook for checking out the best odds on the match.
Bayern vs Frankfurt Prediction
After Niko Kovac left Eintracht Frankfurt the perfect parting gift with a first victory against Bayern Munich in eight years, he is now ready to take the opposite role of defending the DFL-Super Cup for the two-time champions the Bavarians as their new head coach. It is pretty much obvious that Kovac has landed his new job because he was perfectly able to upset the odds by helping Frankfurt claim their first DFB-Pokal title for 30 years.
Winning at the legendary Jupp Heynckes on his farewell is the best proof on the bright future awaiting Kovac at Bayern. The Bavarians are expected to dominate the domestic league for another season under the leadership of Niko Kovac. Therefore, the odds are (1.48) for Bayern to win this match, a draw stands at (4.60), while a win for Frankfurt values at (5.75), according to Bwin Sportsbook.
German Super Cup 2018 Preview
Although Bayern look like remaining dominant in the domestic league, they did not really impress the world with their pre-season preparations under Kovac management. They have played both Juventus and Manchester City lately in the International Champions Cup but lost in the two encounters. They previously met with PSG and secured a (3-1) win. Should their pre-season results make you think twice before placing your bet on Bayern?
Well, first of all, you have to bear in mind that Bayern are getting closer to start the new season with their top striker Lewandowski on board. In addition the talented Colombian forward on loan James Rodriguez is open to extend his stay at the Allianz. It is up to you to pick up the winner at Bwin Sportsbook, but with Kovac at Bayern’s side, there is very little incentive for the betting odds to back Frankfurt this time.
