Bundesliga Preview: Bayern Munich - Freiburg

Bundesliga Preview: Bayern Munich - Freiburg

Bongarts

Jupp Heynckes' side is just 12 goals away from equaling the Bundesliga's highest-ever goals tally and the visitors have a poor record against Saturday's hosts



Following its midweek Champions League exertions, Bayern Munich will shuffle the pack, with the Bundesliga already wrapped up. Rafinha, Daniel Van Buyten, Diego Contento, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Xherdan Shaqiri and Luiz Gustavo will come into the XI, with Claudio Pizarro slotting in behind the fit-again Mario Mandzukic.

Thomas Muller is unlikely to be risked after picking up a slight knock against Barcelona, while Holger Badstuber remains sidelined with knee ligament damage. Toni Kroos reportedly underwent knee surgery last week, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

As it chases a top-four finish, meanwhile, Freiburg will name as strong a team as possible. The club will be without the services of many key players, though.

Julian Schuster has picked up one yellow card too many and will be suspended, Marco Terrazzino has a knee problem, while Jan Rosenthal (thigh) and Pavel Krmas are also likely to miss out.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Bayern Munich is just 12 goals away from equalling the Bundesliga record tally of 101, which the club actually set back in 1972.

  • Bayern has drawn just one of its last 14 home games against Freiburg.
  • Freiburg has never won when facing the Bundesliga leaders, drawing three times and losing 11.
  • Furthermore, the club has not scored against the Bavarians since Papiss Cisse netted a penalty in March 2011.
