At the end of the tenth match day, FC Bayern Munich hosted SC Freiburg in the top game on Sunday evening (7:30 p.m. whistle). The people of Breisgau currently have two more points than the German record champions, for whom the personal situation has eased up a bit.
"It's up to us to deliver results, especially on Sunday, it's a top game," emphasized Julian Nagelsmann at the press conference on Saturday morning. "It's an important game in terms of the table, but also to improve our points average so that we can get back to where we want to be as quickly as possible."
SC Freiburg has not only played a good season nationally, but also internationally, praised the Bayern coach. Christian Streich's team have clear processes that can be seen in every game. "You can see that there is an education behind it and the interaction between player and coach is good," explained the trainer, who also attested a lot of continuity to the guests from Breisgau. "They made good transfers this year and otherwise a squad that is well established," Nagelsmann continued. "What matters is that we show our performance. It's up to us to play a top game."
In addition to the two long-term injured Lucas Hernandez (training after an adductor injury) and Bouna Sarr (knee surgery), captain Manuel Neuer (bruised shoulder joint) is also absent for the top game. Kingsley Coman is also suspended after his yellow-red card in Dortmund. "Manuel Neuer still has problems with his shoulder," said Nagelsmann. "I hope it's enough against Augsburg, but not tomorrow."
TW: Sven Ulreich - After Neuer continues to fail, the 34-year-old guards the goal of the record champion again.RV: Benjamin Pavard - If de Ligt returns to central defence, the world champion moves back to the right-back position.IV: Dayot Upamecano - Der Ex-Leipziger is expected in the center of defense on the right.IV: Matthijs de Ligt - If the new signing is given the green light, he starts next to Upamecano.LV: Alphonso Davies - Davies celebrates his comeback after surviving a bruised skull.ZM: Joshua Kimmich - There is no way in central midfield past the national player.ZM: Leon Goretzka - "The one who plays and trains best is seeded. He played and trained well, so he will play tomorrow if he stays healthy," explained Nagelsmann.RA: Leroy Sané - Da Coman are missing and Musiala will initially sit on the bench, the offensive will set itself up almost by itself. Sané is expected to start as a right winger.OM: Thomas Müller - The tenth position is reserved for the world champion.LA: Sadio Mané - The new signing from Liverpool should be back on the left wing.MS: Serge Gnabry - Kicking the national player in final training no problems, he starts in the center of attack. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is the name of the alternative.
In the top game on Sunday evening, Nagelsmann will probably field his team in a 4-2-3-1 system. If Müller acts a little more offensively, it becomes a 4-2-2-2.
