Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munchen will be aiming to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Borussia M’gladbach when they face Freiburg at their Allianz Arena on Sunday. The reigning champions have been struggling at the back in 2021, with the team conceding five goals in total in the first two games of the year, but, on the other hand, they continue to impress in front of goal. Bayern Munchen are determined to return to winning ways in the German top flight, but Freiburg should not be written off just yet.
The visitors are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, but given their record at Allianz Arena, we are tempted to put our money on the title holders. It has to be noted that Bayern defeated Freiburg in 15 of the previous 16 meetings between the two teams in Munchen. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Robert Lewandowski, who scored his 20th goal of the season at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
