Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich will battle it out in the DFL-Supercup on Sunday in what will be Niko Kovac's first official match in charge of the Bavarians.

Kovac guided Frankfurt to a shock win over the Bavarians in the DFB-Pokal final in May, beating the Bundesliga giants 3-1. Ante Rebic was the standout player in that match, a sign of things to come―the Croat carried his form into the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Venue: Commerzbank-Arena, Frankfurt

Kovac Returns to Frankfurt

New Bayern manager Kovac enjoyed a fantastic two-year spell with Eintracht between 2016 and 2018, culminating in the DFB-Pokal triumph and a spot in this year's UEFA Europa League.

It was a wonderful parting gift, as Bayern had already announced the former Croatia international would become their next manager. It also gave Kovac the chance to start on a high note and immediately impress the fans, something he has continued to do since.

The Bavarians looked awesome in their final pre-season match, albeit against overwhelmed regional side FC Rottach-Egern:

It's hard to ignore the positivity surrounding the side. At just 46, Kovac represents a breath of fresh air the German champions sorely needed, as well as a change in approach.

The club has avoided major departures in the transfer market, with Lewandowski the biggest name seemingly marked for a transfer. As TZ reported (h/t Joe Wright of Goal), Bayern have been firm in their stance that no one will force them into a sale.

While there's been plenty of change, much has also stayed the same. According to Arjen Robben, the eagerness for success is still there:

On paper, Bayern should cruise to a win against a team still finding its feet after losing Kovac. Rebic is still a Frankfurt player, but he might not see many minutes because he only recently returned from a post-World Cup break.

Prediction: Eintracht 1-3 Bayern
