The German footballing world, and large swathes of the game’s family around the world, can hardly wait for Saturday’s titanic Bundesliga showdown when leaders Bayern meet champions Dortmund, who are up to second in the table. However, before all that, there is the crucial matter of Munich’s trip to so-called minnows Freiburg on Wednesday (Live in English from 8 pm CET on FCB.tv Web Radio), “and there are three points at stake there too,” as Toni Kroos pointed out. Boss Jupp Heynckes laid down the law on Tuesday: “It’s not Dortmund – it’s SC Freiburg! That’s our highlight!”
In the pre-match press conference, the Bayern coach resolutely deflected questions relating to BVB on several occasions. “I’m exclusively focused on Freiburg. We’re in good form and want to stay in the groove,” explained Heynckes, who also said he was “making no concessions” in terms of his line-up, and remains unmoved by the fact that another yellow card for Bastian Schweinsteiger would trigger an automatic suspension.
