Bayern Munich was rewarded for their resilient effort by defeating Freiburg 2-1 to extend their lead at the top of the table, holding a 4 points advantage. Despite the snowfall, Bayern Munich displayed a good performance and was able to dominate the game despite a Freiburg equalizer by Nils Peterson.
Hansi Flick’s side suffered an away defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend but made three changes from the first eleven that suffered the loss. Jerome Boateng, Serge Gnabry, and Kingsley Coman replaced Niklas Sule, Leroy Sane, and Douglas Costa respectively in the starting lineup.
Robert Lewandowski scored the first goal for Bayern Munich after a wonderful first-time pass by Thomas Muller to set up the Polish international to finish expertly. A major disappointment for Bayern in the match was Serge Gnabry coming off injured in the first half as he was replaced by Leroy Sane.
Bayern Munich had their work cut out when Freiburg equalized through Nils Peterson in the 62nd minute. However, Hansi Flick’s men showed bravery and determination and eventually scored through Thomas Muller a beautiful pass from Leroy Sane. Freiburg continued to put pressure on Bayern Munich to equalize and came close to doing so very late in the match but was denied by the crossbar.
