Soccer News – Bayern Munich-Freiburg
The Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich hosts Freiburg at the Allianz Arena in a fixture from the 16th round of the competition. Let’s see what we can tell you about this game in today’s preview.
For Bayern Munich this match comes in a difficult moment for the treble champions. Last week they lost their visit to Borussia M’gladbach while on Wednesday they shockingly got eliminated from the DFB Pokal. Hansi Flick’s team paid a visit to 2. Bundesliga side Holstein Kiel, but got kicked out of the tournament. The regular time in Kiel ended 2-2 and the hosts did better during the penalties.
Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane scored for the visitors, but something went really wrong for the Bavarian giants.
The manager Hansi Flick said there should not be any excuses right now. He put a very strong line-up against Holstein Kiel, but it seems his boys underrestimated the opponent.
Freiburg approach this trip to Munich from 8th place in the Bundesliga standings. They are having a good season so far, enjoying their place in the Top 8 with 23 points won so far. What’s the most impressive thing here is Freiburg’s current shape – they are in a run of five consecutive wins in the Bundesliga. That’s something which we rarely see from them.
In their last game in the Bundesliga Freiburg faced Koln at home and crushed the Billy Goats with 5-0. We don’t know what the manager Christian Streich do with his players lately, but it’s working for sure.
Bayern Munich are hurt, so they will try to show their best face when they host Freiburg on Sunday. We believe Hansi Flick’s team is going to be more motivated than ever after what happened on Wednesday. But it won’t be easy for them – Freiburg won their last five matches in the league and they are in a wonderful shape.
