In fact, Bayern have won the last 13 in a row at home to the club from Germany’s southwest. fcbayern.com has gathered some other interesting fact and figures ahead of Jupp Heynckes’ first game back in charge of the champions.

Biggest Bundesliga defeat at FCB
Freiburg suffered their biggest ever Bundesliga defeat during an away game at the Allianz Arena. The visitors were hammered 7-0 in September 2011 thanks to four goals from Mario Gomez, a brace from Franck Ribery and one by their current player Nils Petersen. Bayern’s coach that day? Jupp Heynckes…
Fortress Allianz Arena
FC Bayern are a force of nature at home and are currently on a 19-month unbeaten run in the Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena. The last loss in front of the Reds’ own fans was at the hands of Mainz (2-1) on 2 March 2016. The champions have won 19 matches since then (6 draws) by 77-14.
Freiburg a bit travel sick
Not only have Christian Streich’s club never actually won a Bundesliga fixture in the city of Munich, they are currently also on a run of six away games without a victory in the league. They drew 0-0 at Werder Bremen in their last outing, but have to go back to matchday 27 of last season for their last win away from home (1-0 at Wolfsburg). Their aggregate score from those last six matches on the road is 2-19.
Willenborg with the whistle

Willenborg’s assistants are Arne Aarnink and Holger Henschel, the fourth official is Dominik Schaal, and Dr. Jochen Drees is the video assistant in Cologne.
