Date: Friday 20th January Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion Competition: Bundesliga KO: 19.30
SC Freiburg are without Georg Niedermeier but they welcome back Maximilian Philipp.
Florian Niederlechner will start up front on his own.
Bayern Munich are without Jerome Boateng and Thiago.
Arturo Vidal is a doubt but Thomas Muller could start.
Freiburg have had a good start to the season and are sitting pretty in eighth place and are only four points off a Europa League spot. Anything other than a defeat for Freiburg would be seen as an excellent result.
Bayern won their last four games of 2016 before the winter break including a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig. The win over Leipzig put Carlo Ancelotti’s three points over their nearest rivals and are favourites to take another league title.
Expect Bayern to dominate possession and the game. Freiburg will need to prevent an early goal to stop Bayern from running riot in this game.
Freiburg are unbeaten in four matches.
Bayern have won nine of the last eleven away games in the Bundesliga.
Freiburg have scored 21 goals, the joint-fewest in the top half of the Bundesliga.
Freiburg: Schwolow – Stenzel, Gulde, Söyüncü, Günter – Philipp, Frantz, Höfler, Grifo – Haberer – Niederlechner
Bayern: Neuer – Lahm, Javi Martinez, Hummels, Alaba – Kimmich, Alonso – Robben, Müller, Ribery – Lewandowski
Prediction: Freiburg 1-3 Bayern
