Match Day 25
SC Freiburg vs Bayern Munich
Monday, March 5th, 2018
01:00 (GMT +8)
Stadium: Schwarzwald-Stadion

SC Freiburg:
Last five matches: D W L D D
Average goals per match: 1.0
Average goals against per match: 1.6
Top Scorer: Nils Petersen (12)

Bayern Munich:  
Last five matches: D W W W W
Average goals per match: 2.3
Average goals against per match: 0.8
Top Scorer: Robert Lewandowski (20)

Although Bayern Munich came up short from establishing a club record 15th consecutive win last week after drawing 0-0 versus Hertha Berlin, they still remain in first place with an insurmountable 19 point lead over second placed Borussia Dortmund. Jupp Heynckes' side are in great form, and are hitting their stride in the perfect time as they are in the middle of the hunt for the treble. Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez will make his return for the German champions after missing action due to a concussion. Amazing enough, this may make the Bavarians even better.

Freiburg won't exactly be pushovers in this match. They drew 1-1 on the road to Hoffenheim last weekend after defeating Werder Bremen 1-0 at home the week before. Freiburg have only lost one of their last 12 matches, winning five and drawing six in the process.

The Schwarzwald-Stadion will see the two top goal scorers in the Bundesliga this season on the pitch in Robert Lewandowski and Nils Petersen. Perhaps this is a sign that we will see goals a plenty on Monday.

Considering Bayern Munich's current form and how impressive their performances have been, it's hard to picture a result other than a win by the Bavarians. Freiburg will put up a challenge but will ultimately fall short.

Prediction: SC Freiburg 1-3 Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich comfortably defeated Freiburg away from home today. The difference between them and second placed Schalke is now a ridiculous 20 points.

James Rodriguez, Kinglsey Coman, Frank Ribery, Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski all sat this one out, but it didn't make a difference as Bayern still flexed their offensive muscle.

The deadlock was broken in the 25th minute when Alexander Schwolow knocked a Thomas Muller cross into his own net. This was demoralizing for Freiburg, as they came out trying to find a result against the Bavarian giants. Up until then they had enjoyed the best opportunity of the match, when Lucas Holler tried his luck at goal in the 12th minute but was thwarted by a kick save from Sven Ullreich.

Corentin Tolisso doubled the visitor's lead in the 29th minute with a brilliant strike from 30 meters out.

After the break, Juan Bernat squared a ball in the box to Muller, who slid to the ball in an attempt to poke it into the net. His shot was blocked by a defender, but landed at the feet of Sandro Wagner. All Wagner had to do was tap it into an open net.

Muller was very active in this match and got a well deserved goal in the 69th minute. The German striker got a foot on a Joshua Kimmich corner kick to the front post and directed it into the back of the net.

The Bundesliga title is all Bayern's. With a 20 point lead and only 9 matches remaining, it is only a matter of time before we see a celebration on the Allianz Arena pitch.
