Bayern Munich is welcoming Freiburg to Allianz Arena in round 33 of German Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich is the new-old champion of Bundesliga 2 games before the season ended. Bayern hasn’t lost any of their last 19 games and has won 18 of said 19 games. So far this season, Bayern has scored 93 goals in 32 games, which is an average of almost 3 goals per game, while they conceded only 31 goals in 32 games. Overall, Bayern is the best team in Bundesliga this season, even though Borussia Dortmund came close. In their last Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen on the road, Bayern was by far the better team with 60% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, and 85% of the correct passes. Despite all of the chances, Bayern was able to score only one goal, but it was enough for them to win this game 0-1 and secure the title. With only 2 games left in Bundesliga, Bayern will be without a competitive match for over a month before the Champions League starts again, and that could have a serious impact on their performance. It’s not official yet, but Lewandowski will be the top goal scorer of Bundesliga, and as of now, he has scored 31 goals. Gnarby added 12 goals for Bayern, while Muller has 19 assists. Coutinho, Tolisso, Sule, Alcantara, Mai, and Arp are all injured and will not be playing for the rest of the season, but most of them should be ready for the Champions League. Well, congratulations to Bayern for winning the title, they’ve earned it, but the Champions League is still at stake.
Freiburg is far outside the relegation zone, but they are only 1 point away from the Europa League, something they have never done before. Freiburg is in 8th place in the standings with 45 points, 43 scored goals, and 44 conceded goals, which is solid and at the same level as Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg who are also in the run for the Europa League. Freiburg hasn’t lost any of their last 3 games while scoring 5 goals and conceding only 3 goals during that stretch. In their last Bundesliga game against Hertha at home, Freiburg has had 49% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 81% of the correct passes. The first half was quite uneventful, but the second half was a complete opposite. Freiburg has gotten the lead in 61st minute, but Hertha tied the game in 66th minute. Just 5 minutes later, Freiburg was ahead once again, and Freiburg has won this game 2-1. Nils Petersen has scored 11 goals for Freiburg this season, while Holer added 6 goals. Kath and Gulde are both injured and will not be in the lineup. Freiburg has a good chance of getting to the Europa League, especially now after Bayern secured the title, but Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg need to slip up one more time to help Freiburg.
Bayern has never lost a home match against Freiburg, and there is no reason to happen now, despite Bayern securing the title. Sure, I expect some changes in the lineup, but Bayern has plenty of depth and quality on the bench.
