Half-Time Report: Eintracht Frankfurt holding Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich fail to make a breakthrough despite dominating a goalless first half against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern Munich have been unable to break the deadlock in a goalless first half with Eintracht Frankfurt as they bid to maintain their 100% Bundesliga record.

Pep Guardiola's side dominated the opening exchanges and came close to taking an early lead when Arturo Vidal's swerving strike forced Lukas Hradecky to tip the ball over the crossbar.

It was just the start of a long spell of Bayern pressure as the visitors pushed the Frankfurt defence back for much of the first half.

The leaders wasted a good opportunity to open the scoring when Javi Martinez headed Xabi Alonso's free kick just past the post.

Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa regularly threatened the Frankfurt defence with their direct running, but an impressive back-foot display ensured the hosts were level heading into the break.
