Freiburg v Bayern München Live Commentary & Result, 15/05/2021, Bundesliga | Goal.com

39′ Almost for Sane! Freiburg’s corner is headed out to Sane who leads a lightning counter-attack all by himself! The flying winger manages to race past Kubler to get clean through on goal, but moments later he trips himself up and the chance disappears! 

38′ Grifo’s 20-yard shot deflects off Boateng and drifts behind for a corner.

37′ Freiburg have restricted Bayern well so far and deserve to be on level terms – the visitors have managed just two shots inside the box so far today.   

35′ Bayern almost cut through Freiburg again, only for Kubler to stretch and cut out Muller’s throughball intended for Gnabry.

33′ Gnabry’s 25-yard shot screws a couple of yards wide of the far post.   

31′ Well, that was a thrilling five minutes! First Bayern took the lead out of the blue, following a penalty awarded by VAR. Before, Freiburg struck back instantly through Gulde’s header!

29′ It was a wicked delivery from Grifo towards a crowd of bodies at the near post, but Gulde still had plenty to do to flick a precise header in! 

29′ GULDE! 1-1! Freiburg equalise instantly! Grifo whips a corner in towards the near post and Gulde gets there first to glance a clever header across Nubel and into the far corner! 

28′ That was a wonderful celebration for Lewandowski! The Bayern players quickly formed a guard of honour and the striker raced through high-fiving teammates and taking in the applause!

Penalty Goal

26′ LEWANDOWSKI! 1-0! Lewandowski equals Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a Bundesliga season! The iconic striker steps up to take the penalty and stutters before sending Flekken the wrong way and slotting it into the bottom right corner!

25′ Penalty to Bayern! Sallai pulls Muller down off the ball during a corner, and initially, the referee doesn’t notice it. However, a VAR check ensues and after watching replays of the incident, the referee decides to award a penalty!   

24′ Big save from Flekken! Lewandowski slips Sane clean through on goal with a precise pass, but Flekken rushes out to close down the angle before blocking Sane’s hurried shot to safety!  

22′ Grifo’s speculative effort from distance goes high and wide. 

20′ Chance! Davies’ low cross ricochets out to Lewandowski, who – with all the time in the world – plants a shot well wide from the edge of the box.   

18′ Davies is receiving treatment after Sallai accidentally poked him in the face, but he should be okay to continue.    

17′ Sallai is shown a yellow card after catching Davies in the face with a stray hand.

17′ Kimmich’s 30-yard shot flicks off Lienhart and goes away for a corner. Sule nods the set-piece back across goal from the back post, but the hosts smuggle it clear.   

15′ Hernandez picks out Muller in a pocket of space with a fizzed pass, but Santamaria quickly anticipates the danger and gets across to muscle him off the ball.

13′ Demirovic catches Sule with a late challenge just inside the Freiburg half, but the resulting free-kick amounts to nothing.    

10′ Close! Sane cuts inside from the right, before drilling an 18-yard strike narrowly wide of the near post!

8′ Grifo will most likely be key if Freiburg are to pull off an upset today. Grifo has had a hand in 17 Bundesliga goals this season (nine goals, eight assists). Since detailed data collection began in 2004/05, only two players have ever been directly involved in more goals for Freiburg in one top-flight campaign: Papiss Cisse (22 in 2010/11) and Max Kruse (19 in 2012/13).

6′ The hosts have made a confident start so far. They’ve settled quickly and have enjoyed plenty of possession, while also stifling Bayern when defending. 

4′ Kimmich trips Grifo on the edge of the box, presenting Freiburg with a promising crossing opportunity. Grifo elects to try an audacious shot from the set-piece though, and it swerves comfortably wide of the far post. 

2′ Flekken scuffs a clearance towards Lewandowski, but Hofler just manages to get there first to prevent a mishap.    

1′ Freiburg get the first half underway.

The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!

In Bayern’s 6-0 win over Gladbach last time out, Robert Lewandowski scored three or more goals in one game for the fifth time in the Bundesliga this season – only Gerd Muller has ever managed this more often (six times in 1971/72). Lewandowski is now one goal away from Muller’s 40-goal record campaign from 1971/72.

Bayern make three alterations to the team that thrashed Gladbach 6-0 last weekend: Pavard makes way for Sule in defence, while Coman and Musiala are replaced in attack by Gnabry and Sane.

Freiburg make one change to the side that defeated Koln 4-1 last time out – Santamaria slots into midfield in place of Yannik Keitel.

SUBS: Benjamin Pavard, Bouna Sarr, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Corentin Tolisso, Jamal Musiala, Kingsley Coman, Manuel Neuer, Marc Roca, Javi Martinez.

BAYERN MUNICH (4-2-3-1): Alexander Nubel; Niklas Sule, Jerome Boateng, Lucas Hernandez, Alphonso Davies; Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba; Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry; Robert Lewandowski.

SUBS: Lucas Holer, Woo-Yeong Jeong, Janik Haberer, Jonathan Schmid, Yannik Keitel, Dominique Heintz, Keven Schlotterbeck, Chang-Hoon Kwon, Benjamin Uphoff.

FREIBURG (4-4-2): Mark Flekken; Lukas Kubler, Philipp Lienhart, Manuel Gulde, Christian Gunter; Roland Sallai, Nicolas Hofler, Baptiste Santamaria, Vincenzo Grifo; Ermedin Demirovic, Nils Petersen.

Bayern, meanwhile, secured the Bundesliga title last weekend and they’ll be looking for two wins in their final two games to break the 80-point mark for the season.

Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Bundesliga fixture between Freiburg and Bayern Munich. The hosts enter this one safely placed in ninth after two wins from their last five games and they’ll be hoping to finish their last ever game at the Schwarzwald-Stadion with a victory today, before they move into their new home for the 2021/22 season.
