It’s a game that should have been a 0-3 win to Bayern, given how well the German champions dominated from the first whistle. This side do not lose – or at least never like they’re about to do when down a goal.

Eintracht have been hit with three significant injuries to key men in the group and the home side could face a mountain to climb.
