Bayern Munich vs Freiburg Betting Tips
Bayern Munich host Freiburg on Sunday at the Allianz Arena aiming to avoid a second straight Bundesliga loss. On matchday 15, Bayern Munich stormed out to a 2-0 halftime lead versus Borussia Monchengladbach only to let the Foals come back in the second half to win 3-2. Bayern Munich’s defence has shown plenty of faults this season in spite of Robert Lewandowski continuing his goal scoring brilliance.
Hansi Flick’s team benefitted from RB Leipzig losing to Borussia Dortmund 3-1. Die Roten Bullen’s loss prevented them from going top of the table. Now, Bayern Munich face Freiburg while RB Leipzig go away to Wolfsburg. It is the title-chasers that have the more difficult task and Bayern Munich could find themselves pulling further away from Die Roten Bullen on matchday 16.
Freiburg won’t go to Allianz Arena just to make up the numbers. The Breisgau Brazilians are eighth in the Bundesliga and on a five-match winning run. Coach Christian Streich has overseen a great first half of the season at the club. Freiburg are just two points off of sixth-place Wolfsburg, who occupy the final Europa League qualification place.
Bayern Munich have not lost to Freiburg since the 2014-15 season. Since then, the Bavarians have gone eight matches without defeat against the Breisgau Brazilians. Six of those eight matches were wins while two finished in draws.

Bayern Munich vs Freiburg Team News
Bayern Munich will play Freiburg following a midweek German Cup match versus Holstein Kiel. Freiburg will not play in the middle of the week having already been eliminated from the competition. Bayern Munich had the cup fixture postponed prior to Christmas due to fixture congestion. It doesn’t appear their congestion has eased much.
Flick has three players that could miss the match on Sunday. Winger Serge Gnabry is recovering from an ankle injury suffered versus Mainz. He is likely to be back in a week or two. Tanguy Kouassi and Malik Tillman are both suffering from injuries and will miss the match. Reports indicated on Wednesday that Douglas Costa is unlikely to remain at the club after this season after making a minimal impact.
Streich has four players on his injury list. Gianluca Ittler and Mark Flekken are both recovering from injuries, but the duo could return in time for the game. Jonathan Schmid is a doubt due to a hip injury. Chang-Hoon Kwon is ruled out until February.
Freiburg midfielder Vincenzo Grifo leads the team goals with seven. He has tallied 25% of Freiburg’ goals in the Bundesliga. Roberto Lewandowski on the other hand has 20 goals which has accounted for 43% of Bayern Munich’s goals.
Bayern Munich vs Freiburg Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 4/6 - BET NOW
Don’t sleep on Freiburg this weekend. They may not grab an away win but should give Bayern Munich a run for their money. No one expected Mainz to go two goals up versus Bayern Munich nor did anyone expected Borussia Monchengladbach to win 3-2 after trailing 2-0 to the Bavarians. Bayern Munich’s defence, especially their central defenders, and struggling. David Alaba’s contract situation is uncertain and Jerome Boateng is ageing. Four straight matches between these teams finished with both teams scoring goals.
Robert Lewandowski to score two or more goals @ 21/20 - BET NOW
Lewandowski is the best player in the world. He has scored 20 goals in 14 matches. He has tallied 23 goals in 20 matches in all competitions. Lewandowski has six multi-goal games this season. Prior to scoring one goal versus Borussia Monchengladbach, Lewandowski had gone three straight matches scoring two goals or more.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 8/25 - BET NOW
In 2019-20, Bayern Munich and Freiburg played two matches in the league with both matches finishing 3-1. Eight of the last 11 Bundesliga matches between Bayern Munich and Freiburg finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Bayern Munich’s last four matches in the league all ended with over 2.5 goals tallied. Freiburg, on the other hand, saw their last three Bundesliga matches finish with over 2.5 goals scored. On matchday 15, Freiburg thrashed Koln 5-0.
On paper, Bayern Munich should win this game. However, Freiburg have been playing well and are in the best form of any team in the Bundesliga. They could leave with a draw as they did during the 2018-19 season. If Bayern Munich slip up, RB Leipzig could finish the weekend in first place. Die Roten Bullen do have a difficult away match versus Wolfsburg and injuries are mounting in Leipzig. RB Leipzig play over 24 hours prior to Bayern Munich. A win for Die Rotten Bullen could put pressure on Flick’s team.
