Freiburg vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 18 December 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg).
The all-conquering Bayern now seem a mere shadow of their past glory. They are currently placed fifth in the table, which is so unlike of them. Owing to h2h superiority and abundance of talent, the Bavarians might record a win this Wednesday, but a clean sheet is out of the option due to their current struggles, and especially because of their away handicap.
Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Match Preview
Freiburg dropped points once again the last match-day. This was their third game without a win in the previous four attempts, and this string of encounters have seen them suffer considerably. It has affected their potential stay in the top tier as well.
They had taken on Hertha, and were on the road. The tough customer that were the hosts, coupled with the away handicap, resulted in Freiburg losing 1-0.
Meanwhile, Bayern took all of their frustration out on the poor Werder Bremen side. At the Allianz Arena, the defending champions were at their menacing best, as they romped to a 6-1 win. While new arrival Philipe Coutinho scored a hattrick, goal-machine Robert Lewandowski chipped in with a brace.
Can the Bavarians build up on this solid win against an inconsistent Freiburg this Wednesday ?

Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction
As things stand, Bayern easily take the upper hand this Wednesday. The primary reason being, the level of superiority they have shown over the course of the last two decades over this opponent. Since 1998, Freiburg have won just once against the Bavarians, and in the meantime, Bayern recorded 25 wins over them.
In addition, the current title-holders have scored four or more goals in three of the previous five h2h encounters, and have failed to score at this venue only once in their last 16 visits. On the other hand, Freiburg were kept from scoring a single goal at home, in seven of the previous thirteen h2h meetings.
Coming to recent form, Freiburg were winless in six of their past eight overall fixtures, and were so in four of their preceding eight appearances at this venue. Bayern on the other hand, in spite of their recent struggles, have still managed to record six wins from their last eight overall games, and four from their preceding six on the road.
Taking these observations into account, and most importantly, Bayern’s sense of hurt, and their desperation to get back to the top of the table, they can be considered as wounded beasts now. It’s really not in anyone’s good interest to take on the Bavarians at the moment. Werder Bremen will vouch to this fact.
Adding the form of Lewandowski as well, along with the overall talent the Munich outfit have in their roster – the win should side with Bayern.
However, do note that they are on the road, and are in a period of struggle. They have also not kept a clean sheet in the previous four overall fixtures, and in eight of their last ten on the road. On the other hand, Freiburg have scored at least a goal in 21 of their prior 24 match-ups at home.
Likely, the scope for BTTS is very high this Wednesday at the Schwarzwald-Stadion.
