After their shock DFB Pokal loss to lower-division opposition in the week, Bayern Munich are back in Bundesliga action against Freiburg on Sunday.

The German league champions host Freiburg at the Allianz Arena, looking to get back to winning ways.

Bayern are just two points ahead of RB Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga at the moment. In a season as close as this one, Hansi Flick knows that his side cannot afford to slip up.

Bayern also lost their last league game away to Borussia Moenchengladbach. Despite taking a 2-0 lead in that game, Bayern couldn't hold on, and lost to Gladbach for the second time since Flick took over.

Freiburg are having a great season, and currently find themselves in eighth position, with 23 points from 15 games.

In their last game, they easily beat FC Koln 5-0 at home to further strengthen their position in the standings.
