SC Freiburg is hosting Bayern Munich at Europa-Park-Stadion in round 29 of the German Bundesliga. Freiburg has been in solid form lately, they are undefeated in a while, and they are still fighting for that Champions League spot. Bayern is still at the top of the table, but they are now only 6 points ahead of Borussia, and they are playing in the Champions League next week.
Freiburg is undefeated in their last 7 games while winning 4 of those 7 games. In their last game before the international break, Freiburg has tied with Furth. With 45 points, Freiburg is now in 5th place, which is the same number of points as Leipzig has above them. Defensively, Freiburg has been impressive this season with only 29 conceded goals, while their offense has also done a great job with 43 scored goals. I would say Freiburg’s schedule is on the easier side for the rest of the season, but they are also playing in the DFB Pokal semifinals where they will face HSV in a couple of weeks. I think Freiburg is a great team, well balanced, and with a few more additions to their team, they could be fighting for the top 3 in Bundesliga next season.
As I’ve mentioned, Bayern is playing in the Champions League next week, and they will be facing a solid Villarreal team, but they need to deal with Freiburg first. In the Bundesliga standings, Bayern is at the top, they are by far the best offensive team in the league, but their defense has been shaky this season. Bayern has 63 points, which is 6 points more than Borussia Dortmund has. I’m pretty sure Bayern would trade the Bundesliga title for the Champions League, but I think they have enough quality to compete in both and win both. Lewandowski is of course the leading goalscorer for Bayern with 31 goals, while Thomas Muller has added 16 assists. There are still a few injuries in Bayern, but the list is getting shorter. With the offense they have, Bayern can afford to relax a bit on the defensive end, but it has cost them this season already. I think Bayern will still win Bundesliga despite dropping some points lately, but their main goal is the Champions League, and they are one of the biggest favorites to win it.
The trends are heavily on Bayern’s side here, but both teams are in excellent form, at least they were before the international break. I think Freiburg can score here, but so can Bayern. I see goals in this one.
