Winning the league is a huge accomplishment for any team, as it serves as proof that those teams were the most consistent over the course of a long, grueling season. That applies to this season as well, although the victory may end up feeling a little hollow for some. After all, there is going to be no hoisting of the trophy in front of the home fans or hitting the open top bus to parade down the streets. It will be a strange type of feeling for players and fans alike, but none of that should distract from the accomplishment that every league winner should feel once the regular season is over. With all that said, let’s get right into action and have a glance at how these teams arrive to this affair so you can place your bets against their Bundesliga odds.
Freiburg Vs Bayern Game Info
In Germany, Bayern Munich have already clinched the title for the 8th straight time, so they can relax a little this coming Saturday when they host Freiburg at the Allianz Arena. The same cannot be said for the visitors, though, as they will be heading into this weekend knowing that they still have a shot at a Europa League spot next season. Munich come into this one favored by 2 goals, with the goal total set at 3 ½.
Why bet on FC Bayern Munich
With the Bundesliga title all wrapped up, Bayern Munich can begin to state looking ahead to their quest to win the treble this season. They have the DFB-Pokal Final coming in early July, as well as a Champions League 8-team tournament, which will be held in Lisbon, on the horizon. Those are some big games, which makes you wonder what type of team they are going to field this coming weekend. Are they going to play all their stars knowing that there are bigger games ahead? I would watch for the line-ups before making a wager on this one. Munich, though, would still be strong, even with bench guys playing. They are 12-2-2 at home this season, scoring 50 goals and surrendering just 14. They beat Freiburg 3-1 on the road earlier this season.
Why bet on SC Freiburg
Heading into the weekend, Freiburg are sitting in 7th place in the Bundesliga standings, which would be good enough for a Europa League Qualification spot. The bad news for Freiburg is that they might need to pick up at least a point on the road to the Champions to maintain that spot. Overall, Freiburg are sitting at 12-9-11 on the season, with their goal difference at -1. The positive side of all of that is that they are 3 points up on the team directly behind them and have a vastly superior goal difference. They are also just 1 point behind Wolfsburg for an automatic Europa League spot that would see them bypass the qualification round. Their last visit to Munich ended in a 1-1 tie, so all is not lost. On the road this season, they are 4-7-5, scoring 24 and surrendering 27.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I am a little wary about making a prediction for this one without knowing what Bayern Munich are going to do in terms of team selection. I am leaning towards Freiburg keeping it close, so I am taking them against the spread, although that might change if Munich field their regular lineup.
Pick: Bayern Munich 2 Freiburg 1
