Team Form

Bayern Munchen

Still undefeated in this season, the  reigning king of Bundesliga extended their winning streak when they outlasted Nurnberg. The match ended in a 2-0 victory in favor of the Bavarians. Aside from the said triumph, the club has also ensured the entry in the German Cup semi-final when they thrashed the “dangerous” Hamburg.

 

Dominating the table with fifty-six (56) points, Bayern remains unstoppable. The win against Nurnberg was their 6th consecutive victory and the the Hamburg thrashing was nothing short of being spectacular. Mario Mandzukic hit a hat-trick while Arjen Robben and Dante extended their lead.

 

Against Freiburg, Bayern is one heck of a boulder that will not easily crumble. They have kept a clean sheet in seven (7) of their last nine (9) matches and have an average score of two (2) goals during their last twelve (12) encounters in the domestic league.

 

However, given Guardiola’s cautious nature, expect him not to take things easily.

 

Freiburg

Freiburg’s draw against Hoffenheim enabled them to veer away from the relegation zone as they propelled to the 15th spot of the Bundesliga table. But it seemed that it will not take them too long and they will be a relegation candidate again.

 

Pitted against the Bavarians, Freiburg must readily double their efforts. So far, their best performance in their previous encounters was a draw. They have never won against Bayern Munchen. Nevertheless, they have  the ability to force the German giant to settle for a draw.

 

Prediction: Bayern Munchen

Expect Bayern to dominate the match. Apparently, it will be hard to defeat their perfect form. However, since Freiburg has a record of forcing an even steven finish, it is also possible for the match to end in a draw. But this is less likely to happen compared to the possibility of Bayern winning the match.
