In the 24th round of Bundesliga, Bayern Munich goes to Freiburg to face the ninth team of the standings. Bayern still has hopes to intervene into the title race even in the face of an 8-points gap from the leading Bayer Leverkusen. There are still plenty of rounds left and if being concentrated, the race can potentially become as heated as in the previous season, when everything was decided in the last minutes of the last-round matches. Freiburg, in its regard, does not show cohesiveness, floating in the middle of the table with 29 points in 23 matches. The main goal of Christian Streich’s team is to get to top-6 once again, which is only 5 points away. The first-round match saw Bayern’s confident win 3-0 and it is still a question whether Freiburg can compete with the current champions in the second match.

Freiburg vs. Bayern Munich Preview 

Freiburg Preview

Despite relatively steady results on the home turf (19 points in 11 matches), Freiburg lately has serious problems in Bundesliga matches. Breisgau-Brasilianers last win was achieved in the 18th round against Hoffenheim (3-2). After that, Freiburg saw three defeats in a row, draw with Frankfurt and again a defeat in the last round against Augsburg. In between, Streich’s team was more successful in UEFA Europa League, passing through Lens in a tight match with extra time and a decisive goal in the 99th minute. Freiburg understands that it is time to balance its game in Bundesliga in order to get a chance to play in European Cups next season but there is a feeling among the fans that there are simply not enough resources within the squad.

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern finally got an important win after a series of devastating results, winning against Leipzig (2-1). This win can be a turning point in terms of morale for many players, including Harry Kane, who scored two goals after several unconvincing matches. Thomas Tuchel, despite his announced departure at the end of the season, still believes that there is a possibility to claim another Bundesliga title, since Xabi Alonso’s Bayer cannot maintain its winning streak until the end of the season. In their regard, Munich has one task - to score 3 points in every match, how it puts Tuchel - whatever it takes. Bayern has enough experience and skillful players to hold on to this last instruction of their coach.

Harry Kane to Score at Any Time 

After setbacks in the beginning of the year, the English striker seems to be back on track with two crucial goals in the match against Leipzig. Kane is the key player for Tuchel in this campaign since he can provide results even amid suffering teamplay. Moreover, Kane still has a chance to beat Robert Lewandowski's record of 41 goals, currently being with 27 goals. While it won’t be as good as winning his first title on the professional level, breaking this record is still a valuable achievement for a “one-season wonderkid”.
