Bayern Munich is welcoming SC Freiburg to Allianz Arena in round 16 in the German Bundesliga.
Well, this hasn’t happened in a long, long time. Bayern has lost 2 games in a row, one in Bundesliga and one in DFB Pokal. Bayern was the dominant team in their DFB Pokal game, and they got ahead in the 14th minute, but Holstein tied the score, and in the end, they have beaten Bayern in a penalty shootout. In their latest Bundesliga game, Bayern was playing against Borussia M’gladbach on the road, and they have had 67% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Despite leading 0-2 in the 26th minute, Bayern conceded 2 goals before halftime and another goal in the 49th minute. Bayern has created a lot of good chances in the second half, but they weren’t able to score a goal, and they ended up losing this match 3-2. Despite the loss, Bayern is still at the top of Bundesliga thanks to Leipzig failing to win their game. Lewandowski has already scored 20 goals so far this season and isn’t planning to stop anytime soon. Coman has added 7 assists. Kouassi is injured, while Zirkzee is suspended because of the red card. We can call this a crisis because it hasn’t happened in a long time, but Bayern is too good of a team to stay in this slump long.
Freiburg has won 5 of their last 6 games, and that loss was against Stuttgart in DFB Pokal. Freiburg is now on a 2-game winning streak during which they scored 8 goals while conceding only 1 goal. Thanks to this fantastic streak Freiburg is now in 8th place with 23 points, 28 scored goals, and 24 conceded goals so far. In their latest Bundesliga game, Freiburg was playing against Koln at home, and they have had 49% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 1 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a decent 80% of the correct passes. Freiburg was fantastic in the attacking end, and they have scored 2 goals in the first half and 3 more in the second half. Freiburg has deservedly won this match 5-0. Grifo is Freiburg’s best player with 7 goals and 4 assists, while Petersen added 5 goals. Haberer, Flekken, and Kwon are all injured, and they will miss this game for Freiburg. After a slow start, Freiburg has gained consistency, and they have even become the contestant for the Europa League spot, and honestly, they might even get there.
When playing at home, Bayern hasn’t lost to Freiburg in their last 20 games, and Bayern has 3 home wins in a row. The trends are heavily on Bayern’s side in this matchup, and despite being a crisis at the moment, Bayern is the better team here, and they are still scoring a ton of goals. I’m taking Bayern at home to break their losing streak.
