Crashing the party in Freiburg
FC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich has managed to become the champions for the 31st time, with 30 of those championships coming from Bundesliga, and has been the only club in this league to have won their ninth consecutive Bundesliga title.
The Reds have scored in every single one of their 33 league outings since May 2019. Hansi Flick’s men boast a tackle success rate of 52.5% and with 74 points are on the top position of the Bundesliga table this season.
Bayern has won 23, lost 4, and drew in 5 games out of the 32 matches they have played this season. Hansi Flick’s side has definitely benefited from the pressure which has been lifted from their shoulders after humiliating Borussia Monchengladbach with a 6-0 scoreline.
Bayern Munich’s possible starting lineup: Neuer, Lewandowski, Pavard, Musiala, Sule, Muller, Hernandez, Davies, Coman, Kimmich and Alaba
After a disappointing defeat against Hertha Berlin, Freiburg bounced back from it with an outstanding 4-1 win away against FC Koln last weekend. Christian Streich’s men made sure their hopes of competing in Europe remain intact while going into their last 2 games.
Christian Streich’s men have won their final home matches in the last 3 Bundesliga seasons. Freiburg is currently on the 9th position in this German league with 44 points; having drawn in 8, lost and won in 12 games out of the 32 matches they have played yet.
Freiburg’s possible starting lineup:
Flekken, Grifo, Kubler, Lienhart, Santamaria, Schlotterbeck, Gunter, Demirovic, Keitel, Hofler and Sallai
The match will be played at Schwarzwald-Stadion, Freiburg’s iconic stadium. Despite no in-person attendance, we can expect a thrilling performance from both sides.
Freiburg’s Manuel Gulde might not play again this season because of a calf injury he suffered in the previous game. Baptiste Santamaria might replace Petersen to ease up the pressure their defence might face. Dominique Heintz will not be a part of the team this season because of his back injury, and Gulde should be replaced with Mark Flekken from the start of this match.
Bayern’s Nianzou will not play this season because of the red card he received against Gladbach last weekend, which incurred him a two-match suspension. Players like Leon Goretzka, Corentin Tolisso, Eric Choupo-Moting, Douglas Costa and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann will not be a part of the squad as they are injured. Robert Lewandowski is just one goal away from equalling Gerd Müller’s record of 40 goals in a single season.
