Bayern Munich vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 3 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
The defending champions managed four wins on the trot across competitions, but the crisis can still be felt both in the dressing room and on the court. They failed to impress once again on Tuesday, barely advancing past Regionalliga (fourth division) opposition Rodinghausen in the second round of DFB Pokal.
Bayern seemed to be right on track to clinch a demolishing confidence-boosting victory when Sandro Wagner and Thomas Muller bagged two early goals within the opening 13 minutes of play at Bremer Brucke, but the team had to defend the victory right until the very end of the match (ended 1-2).
Niko Kovac’s side climbed up to the second place in the Bundesliga ladder after notching two consecutive league wins. Can they make it three in a row on Saturday when Freiburg come to visit Allianz Arena?
Bayern Munich vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Freiburg were by no means a tricky opposition to Der FCB in the past couple of years.
Bayern were really brutal bagging as many as 13 goals and conceding just one in last three meetings with Bresigau-Brasilianer.
The Bavarians won 16, drew 2 and lost none of 18 home games against Freiburg over the course of history.
Bayern Munich vs Freiburg: Prediction
Christian Streich’s men ended their three-game unbeaten run on Wednesday when they fell to the second-division side Holstein Kiel 2-1 in DFB Pokal. The team thus cancelled the confidence-wise important 3-1 victory over the third-placed Borussia Monchengladbach in the previous round of Bundesliga.
The loss to the likes of Holstein Kiel is certainly not the kind of introduction you want to have before the visit to Allianz Arena. However, with Bayern’s unconvincing form in the last couple of months, it’s also hard to see any value in backing the hosts who are 1.10 to pick up a three-pointer.
Knowing that all of last five matches Freiburg played on the road this season saw goals scored at both ends, we have to try with the 2.60 odds offered on Bayern Munich to win & BTTS here.
