Maximum yield at home
FC Bayern entertain SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon, and the record is clearly stacked in favour of the Bavarians. The German record champions have won 26 out of 36 encounters in the top flight, losing four and drawing six, with 82 goals scored and 28 conceded. The Breisgau club have lost more matches and conceded more goals against Bayern than against any other club. *fcbayern.com*has compiled the most interesting facts and stats in the build-up to the match.
Impressive home streak against SCF
Bayern have taken three points in all of their last 14 Bundesliga home matches against SC Freiburg. Only Wolfsburg have lost more consecutive matches away to the same club, losing 15 matches on the bounce in Munich. Freiburg have yet to win away to Bayern, the last draw dating back to May 1997, a goalless stalemate. In total Bayern have won 16 out of 18 home matches against Freiburg, with two games ending in a draw.
Good season despite away blues for Freiburg
Apart from the DFB Cup exit against Holstein Kiel in the second round, Freiburg got off to a good start to the season. Christian Streich's troops are on 12 points after nine matches. The only time in the last six years Freiburg boasted more points at this stage was in the 2016/17 season, when they were on 15 points after Matchday 9. However, SCF have struggled on the road so far in 2018, winning only one out of 13 league matches on foreign soil, a 3-1 victory over Wolfsburg on Matchday 4, losing seven and drawing five times.
Robert Lewandowski's personal record against the man from the Black Forest is impressive. The Poland captain has found the net 13 times in 12 Bundesliga encounters with Freiburg, more goals than any other player in Bundesliga history.
Mixed feelings for Kovac
Niko Kovac always had reason to look forward to matches against Freiburg when he was a player, winning seven and drawing three matches, never losing. The Croat's record as a coach is not positive against the Breisgau club. He has lost two out of four encounters, drawing twice, never winning.
