Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Preview

Freiburg is currently on the rise as the team is undefeated in the last four rounds of German top flight competitions. As a result, they have now climbed up to the eighth spot in the overall standings, only four points below the second and final Europa League qualifying berth presently held by sixth-place team Borussia Dortmund.
Breisgau-Brasilianer, last season’s 2. Bundesliga champions, is coming off a 2-1 win over bottom three side FC Ingolstadt on the road at the Audi Sportpark during their last Bundesliga fixture on Dec. 21 last month, as per the league’s official website.
German striker Florian Niederlechner was the man of the match for head coach Christian Streich’s squad as he scored a brace in the 34th and 41st minutes to open the game’s scoring.
Ingolstadt defender Markus Suttner was able to cut the lead to one point in the 53rd minute, but both sides went scoreless after that as Freiburg came away with the victory and three points.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich gave erstwhile league leaders RB Leipzig their second loss in their last three matches as the defending champs overpowered the 10-man Bulls squad with a 3-0 win at the Allianz Arena also on Dec. 21, The Guardian reported.

Spanish midfielder Thiago broke the game’s deadlock in the 17th minute with a close-range right-footed shot.
Compatriot Xabi Alonso then doubled the lead eight minutes later before Leipzig forward Emil Forsberg was sent off in the 30th minute with a hard foul on Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.
Polish striker Robert Lewandowski sealed the win with a penalty kick in the 45th minute as both squads went goalless in the second half.
