The good run of form for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga continued on Sunday. The Bavarian club clinched a comfortable 3-0 win against Freiburg at Allianz Arena, courtesy of a brace from Kingsley Coman and a goal from Leroy Sane. The Bavarian club remains third in the league after the win on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel made two changes to the team that played in Denmark on Tuesday. Thomas Muller replaced Jamal Musiala in the number ten role. Konrad Laimer made way for Leon Goretzka in the midfield for the game against Freiburg.
Bayern dominated the proceedings from the word go on Sunday. They had long spells of possession and several corners in the first ten minutes of the game. Freiburg found it difficult to regain territory and launch counter-attacks.
The home side’s efforts were rewarded in the 12th minute of the game. Kingsley Coman came up with an outrageous goal from the right flank. The French forward unleashed a venomous cross cum shot from the right flank, which dipped perfectly to beat the goalkeeper. It is surely a candidate for the Bundesliga’s goal of the season.
Harry Kane came close to doubling the lead in the 19th minute. After linking up with Leroy Sane in the final third, Kane took a powerful shot from the edge of the box. There was enough power in the shot to beat the goalkeeper, but it missed the target by a few inches. The English forward had another shot missing by a few inches a couple of minutes later.
Sane and Kane combined again in the 25th minute to double Die Roten’s lead against Freiburg. The German forward released Kane in the box with a precise pass. Kane returned the favour by squaring the ball for Sane in the middle of the box. Sane had a simple tap-in to make it two for Die Roten.
Bayern kept on attacking Freiburg in the remainder of the first half. The home side was effectively playing in Freiburg’s half, dominating possession and creating chances at a good rate. Sane had a goal ruled out for offside at the end of the first half after a brilliant bit of play between him and Coman.
The home side gave no breathing space to Freiburg in the second half. They kept the pressure on as multiple half-chances fell to different forwards. Coman came close to scoring his second when his curled attempt from the right side just went over the bar. Mathys Tel had the ball in the net after coming on late in the game, but it was ruled out for offside.
Leon Goretzka hit the post after a clever flick from Sane at the edge of the box. The third goal for Rekordmeister eventually came in the 85th minute when Coman’s curling effort was viciously deflected past the goalkeeper. Konrad Laimer played a lovely pass to set up the move for the French winger.

It was one of the best displays from Die Roten this season. Tuchel needs to set this game as the benchmark for performance levels and execution from players. Bayern players will disperse for games with national teams over the next two weeks.
