Liberating Bayern Munich welcomes Freiburg to the Allianz Arena as they aim to secure their place at the top of the Bundesliga.
Julian Nagelsmann’s team beat Benfica for five in the Champions League in the middle of the week, and recovered from their 5-0 hammering against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DfB Pokal with back-to-back victories.
Bayern were shocked by Eintracht Frankfurt at home last month and they will aim to avoid a similar shock this weekend.
This is how the Bundesliga champions can line up.
