Match preview

Thomas Tuchel could hardly have dreamt of a better start to life at Bayern Munich.

During the international break, Bayern stunned the footballing world by sacking Julian Nagelsmann.

This is despite the fact they were second in the Bundesliga, still in the DFB-Pokal and into the Champions League quarter-finals, having won eight out of eight.

Nevertheless, Tuchel took charge for the first time on Saturday, immediately taking die Roten back to the top of the table by demolishing Dortmund in Der Klassiker.

Bayern led 4-0 after 50 minutes, Dayot Upamecano scoring a bizarre goal, Thomas Müller netting twice and Kingsley Coman completing the rout, before a late rally meant it ended 4-2.

In this competition, they’ve so far smashed Viktoria Köln, Augsburg and Mainz, scoring 14 goals.

So, can Freiburg cause a major upset in Munich?

Breisgau-Brasilianer reached their first-ever Pokal Final just last season, where they were heartbreakingly beaten on penalties by RB Leipzig.

Right now, Christian Streich’s side are fourth in the Bundesliga, unbeaten in seven league outings, dreaming of a maiden Champions League appearance.

To get this far in the Pokal, Freiburg have seen off Kaiserslautern, St. Pauli and Sandhausen, but it doesn’t get much tougher than this.

Bayern Munich won 5-0 when these two met at Allianz Arena in October, and a similar result is expected again here.
