The Bavarian giant has bounced back from its opening day defeat to Monchengladbach with three straight Bundesliga wins and will be looking for another against Freiburg.
|Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1)
Neuer; Rafinha, van Buyten, Badstuber, Lahm; Gustavo, Schweinsteiger; Muller, Kroos, Ribery; Gomez
Arjen Robben is unlikely to feature after his recent spell on the sidelines through injury as the Bavarian club is keeping one eye firmly on the midweek Champions League encounter against Villarreal. Toni Kroos is expected to feature in midfield which will be the youngster's 50th Bundesliga appearance. Rafinha could start at right back with Jerome Boateng given a breather.
Baumann; Mujdza, Barth, Krmas, Bastians; Schuster, Caligiuri, Flum, Makiadi, Reisinger; Cisse
Coach Marcus Sorg is expected to name an unchanged starting lineup from the side that dismantled Wolfsburg 3-0 before the international break. The only injury doubt is right back Mensur Mujdza who will face a late fitness test on a knee injury. If the Bosnian is ruled out, Johannes Flum will drop into defense with Maximilian Nicu stepping into midfield.
