Following a couple of eventful weeks, Bayern Munich will continue their league campaign under new coach Jupp Heynckes as they host SC Freiburg this weekend. It will be the first hurdle for newly appointed coach Jupp Heynckes, who now takes charge of his fourth stint at the club. The Bavarians are struggling at the moment, failing to register a victory in any of their last three games all competition.

The international break would have given them enough time to regroup, under a new manager, and there is little doubt that they will come out all guns blazing this weekend. They cannot afford to lose any more ground in the title race in Germany.

The German champions will look to bridge the massive five-point gap at the top with a win against Christian Streichs’ Freiburg this weekend. Here’s the predicted 4-2-3-1 Bayern Munich lineup to appear against the club from the rain-forest.

Defense

Although Sven Ulreich still remains the second choice goalkeeper for FC Bayern, his presence in the starting lineup is doubted following a string of terrible performances. Veteran goalkeeper Tom Starke might return to the starting lineup after coming back from retirement.

The Bayern Munich lineup will be comprised of Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng as two central defenders, flanked with Joshua Kimmich and David Alba as the fullbacks. The defence will look to make amends after a horrid display against Hertha in the previous matchday.

Midfield

The double pivot Bayern midfield will be comprised of Thiago Alcantara and Sebastian Rudy. Chilean International Arturo Vidal is doubtful for the clash, paving way for new signing Sebastian Rudy to get a runout against Freiburg.

Jupp Heynckes will be delighted to have his services in the centre of the park alongside the highly talented Thiago Alcantara. Corentin Tolisso, on the other hand, might have to settle for the bench.

Attack

Robert Lewandowski will lead the Bayern attack on Saturday. The Bayern Munich forward became Poland’s all-time top scorer this week and will be looking to continue his brilliant form against Freiburg. He also scored a whopping 16 goals in Poland’s World Cup qualifying campaign, ultimately guiding his country to next year’s World Cup.

Lewandowski will be aided by the superior qualities of attacking midfielder Thomas Muller, who will be flanked by James Rodriguez and Arjen Robben. Franck Ribery’s absence due to injury will be a massive blow for Bayern however. Youngster Kingsley Coman however, will continue to watch as a spectator.
