Freiburg vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 4 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).
Hertha BSC have ended Bayern Munich’s run of 16 consecutive victories across competitions as the Old Lady have shockingly managed to hold the Bavarian giants to a goalless draw last Saturday at Allianz Arena. Jupp Heynckes’ are, however, by no means affected by such a slip up being as many as 19 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga standings.
Next up for Bayern are Freiburg who have been playing hot and cold throughout the season. Most importantly for them is that the relegation zone is still five points away, but a potential negative streak could possibly put Freiburg’s top flight status in jeopardize.
Freiburg generally collect most of their points at Schwarzwald-Stadion where they have suffered only a single win in this season. Moreover, the team is overall very tough to break down in their backyard and they’ve only shipped a single goal in last five Bundesliga matches in front of the home crowd.
This fine trend will be in a great danger on Sunday clearly when the host are about to come face to face with league’s strongest attacking line. Robert Lewandowski has bagged five goals in last five matches in all competitions and stopping the Polish superstar will be a huge challenge for Streich’s defensive line here.
Freiburg vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich have dominated this match-up over the course of history.
The Bavarians have won 26 and lost only 4 of 36 meetings with Freiburg.
Bayern Munich have won 5 and lost 1 of last six H2H encounters netting as many as nine goals in last two clashes with Freiburg.
Freiburg vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
The visitors clearly lack the motivation to push hard in Bundesliga where they practically have the title in the bag being 10 points up at the top of the standings.
Given that they are now up against a rock-solid defense of Freiburg’s, we would not be surprised to witness another low-scoring affair and our main betting option will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 2.35.
