Bayern Munich predicted lineup vs SC Freiburg: Match Preview

Bayern’s last game was against second-division Holstein Kiel away from home. The reigning DFB Pokal champions were knocked out in a shocking upset, as the minnows defeated Bayern 6-5 in penalties. Bayern winger Serge Gnabry scored the opener for his club after 14 minutes, converting a Thomas Muller header from six yards out. Replays later showed that Gnabry was offside in the build up to the goal, but since VAR was not used for this game, the goal stood.

Holstein Kiel full-back Jannik Dehm launched a long ball up the field, which forward Fin Bartels latched on to and scored from 20 yards out, equalizing for the underdogs. Ex-Manchester City forward Leroy Sane, signed in the summer, pulled off a beautiful free-kick shortly after half-time, restoring the Bavarian giants’ lead. As time trickled away, Johannes van den Bergh hit a brilliant cross into the box, and Hauke Wahl headed home the second equalizer in the final minute of the game. The game went to penalties, and after new signing Marc Roca failed to convert his spot-kick for Bayern, the defending champions were knocked out of the competiton 6-5 by the minnows.

Hansi Flick will expect a strong reaction from his side against Freiburg in their bid to retain the Bundesliga title.

Bayern Munich predicted lineup vs SC Freiburg: Latest Team News

German forward Serge Gnabry is doubtful for this game. The right-winger has featured in 13 Bundesliga matches this season for Bayern, scoring 4 goals and providing 1 assist. Gnabry was also on the scoresheet in Bayern’s latest match against Holstein Kiel, scoring the opening goal of the match. Although he made his return in the DFB Pokal, it is doubtful whether he will be available for the Freiburg game due to a shin injury.

Flick will also miss out on 18-year old wonder-kid Nianzou Kouassi. The French center-back, signed this season from Paris Saint-Germain, has made 1 appearance in the league so far. The youngster is out with a thigh injury. Another youngster, striker Joshua Zirkzee is suspended for this game and won’t be available for selection.

Freiburg will be without left-back Gian-Luca Itter. The German full-back is out with a muscle injury. Another full-back, Jonathan Schmid will also miss out on this game, with a thigh injury. Goalkeeper Mark Flekken is out with an elbow injury, while winger Chang-Hoon Kwon will miss out on the game with a knee injury.
