Bayern Munich vs Freiburg Full Match Reports
Bayern Munich’s undefeated streak in the Bundesliga remained unscathed as they orchestrated a resounding 3-0 triumph over Freiburg at the Allianz Arena. The visitors, in contrast, endured their 35th head-to-head defeat against the Rekordmeister, a dismal record unmatched against any other adversary.
Bayern had flirted with disappointment midweek, having to claw back from a deficit to secure victory against Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League. However, there would be no such tribulations in this encounter, as they promptly seized the initiative, surging into the lead within the opening 15 minutes. Kingsley Coman emerged as the fortuitous goalscorer, with his initially mishit cross veering over the goalkeeper and nestling into the net via the far post. This marked Coman’s inaugural goal of the season.
Harry Kane witnessed two close attempts narrowly missing the target as the hosts sought to augment their advantage. Fortunately for Bayern, Kane’s inaccuracies would not prove costly, as the red-hot Leroy Sané added the second goal for his side. Following an intricate one-two with Kane, Sané fired a precise shot into the net after a mesmerizing dribble toward the box. The German maestro would have celebrated a second goal in exquisite fashion before halftime, but the effort was invalidated due to the most marginal of offsides.
Bayern maintained their stranglehold on the contest in the first half, and this dominance persisted after the interval. Nonetheless, clear-cut opportunities grew scarcer, with Coman coming closest to doubling his personal tally with a sizzling curler that sailed just over the crossbar. Bayern then had a second goal annulled as Mathys Tel’s close-range attempt was disallowed for offside, followed by a thunderous strike from Leon Goretzka that rebounded off the post. The third goal ultimately materialized five minutes from the final whistle, as Coman’s strike took a wicked deflection off Philipp Lienhart en route to the net, sealing a thoroughly comfortable victory.
The defending champions now boast five wins from seven Bundesliga outings. However, they find themselves anchored in third place, trailing the relentless pace set by Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart, as they head into the international break. Freiburg, meanwhile, maintains a presence in the top half of the table. Nevertheless, it marks the second defeat in a span of four days for Christian Streich’s men, both accompanied by lackluster performances, as their winless streak in away league matches extends to three.
Leroy Sané, with his stellar performance, rightfully earned the accolade of Man of the Match for Bayern Munich.
