Freiburg – Bayern Munich

Freiburg – Bayern Munich

Freiburg hosts the champion Bayern Munich at the Schwarzwald-Stadion in a game from the 16th round of the Bundesliga.

Freiburg are havina very positive season so far. They are currently 6th in the Bundesliga standings with 25 points and with a record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. In their last three games they suffered two defeats, which hurt them in terms of position in the table, but they are still in the Top 6 and this is absolutely great for them.

Few days ago Freiburg suffered their 4th loss for the season. Christian Streich’s boys visited the capital to face Hertha BSC and got beaten with 0-1. The Czech midfielder Vladimir Darida scored the only goal in the game in the beginning of the second half. Christian Streich picked Vincenzo Grifo and Kwon Chang-Hoon from the bench, but this didn’t hurt the hosts.

Bayern Munich reacted well after suffering two consecutive losses in the league. On Saturday the Bavarians hosted Werder Bremen and entertained their fans with a crushing 6-1 win. Philippe Coutinho was the man of the match, scoring a hattrick and giving two assists. This is a perfect performance by the Brazilian midfielder. Robert Lewandowski twice and Thomas Muller also scored for FC Hollywood.

Bayern Munich has some catching up to do. Right now the champions are 5th in the Bundesliga with 27 points, being 6 points behind the leader RB Leipzig. Against Freiburg they will aim to record their 9th win for the season, but it won’t be easy – Freiburg are pretty decent since the start of the campaign.

Because of Freiburg being pretty good this season, this game between them and Bayern Munich on Wednesday promises to be really entertaining. The champions scored six goals in their last game, but are very solid at home right now.

Bayern Munich hosts Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich hosts Borussia Dortmund

All of the fans of German football will be excited on Saturday, because the champion Bayern Munich hosts Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena in the big derby of the Bundesliga.

For Bayern Munich this is going to be a first Bundesliga game since the departure of the head coach Niko Kovac. The Croatian manager was sacked after the humilating 1-5 loss against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. During the week the caretaker Hans Dieter Flick debuted with a win in the Champions League with Bayern beaing Olympiakos with 2-0 in Munich.

While Bayern Munich’s board is still looking for a new manager to replace Kovac, Hans Dieter Flick must find a way to calm the dressing room and motivate the players before the big derby. Against Olympiakos he left Philippe Coutinho on the bench, but maybe his idea was to keep the Brazilian fresh for the game against Dortmund on Saturday. Thiago Alcantara and Ivan Perisic also sat on the bench on Wednesday.

Borussia Dortmund also had a game in the Champions League during the week, beating Inter Milan with 3-2 at the Signal Iduna Park in a dramatic and exciting fixture. Die Borussen were two goals behind, but in a heroic way they turned the game around with two goals from Achraf Hakimi and one from Julian Brandt.

What Borussia Dortmund can do now is try to use the managerial problems in Bayern Munich. The situation in the champions’ dressing room is not perfect and they are without a head coach now. This is a great chance for Lucien Favre’s boys to make a hit. So far Dortmund have lost just one game in the Bundesliga – against the newcomers Union Berlin.

Even without a manager at the moment, Bayern Munich remain a boogeyman. For Borussia Dortmund it won’t be easy at the Allianz Arena, but they also have the tools to win this one.

Leipzig – Eintracht Frankfurt

RB Leipzig hosts Eintracht Frankfurt in a game from the second round of the Bundesliga. This clash at the Red Bull Arena promises a lot of fun moments, because these two teams are really good. Let’s take a look at it.

RB Leipzig started the new season in the best way possible – with a win. The Bulls travelled to the capital to face the newcomers Union Berlin and celebrated a crushing 4-0 win. Marcel Halstenberg, Marcel Sabitzer and Timo Werner scored until the halftime break, while during the second half Christopher Nkunku added one more goal for the visitors.

This was a Bundesliga debut with RB Leipzig for the club’s new manager Julian Nagelsmann. The young tactician left Hoffenheim to move to Leipzig and start a new chapter in his managerial career. He’s regarded one of the most promising young managers in the world, so it’s going to be very interesting to follow his career at his new club.

Meanwhile Eintracht Frankfurt also started the new season with a win. The Eagles hosted Hoffenheim at home and celebrated a difficult 1-0 win. The only goal in the game was scored in the first minute when the centre back Martin Hinteregger scored after an assist from Filip Kostic. Last season Eintracht did well and reached the semi-finals of Europa League, but the team didn’t find a place in the Champions League. One of the primary goals this season is going to be a Top 4 finish, despite of the departures of influental players like Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller.

You can be sure that RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt will offer the fans a spectacular game on Sunday. Both of these two teams have ambition to qualify for the Champions League, so for them every point is important. Let’s see what’s going to happen.
