Arjen Robben took his tally to 8 with a double against Augsburg. The Dutch International’s performance was labelled as “unbelievable” by his manager, Pep Guardiola, with the former Barcelona boss calling on the winger to bring that form in the game with struggling Freiburg.
“Arjen Robben is a top player,” he said. “I’m so happy to have players like him in my team. His performances at the moment have been unbelievable for this team.
“He has a brilliant attitude which inspires other players. Every coach needs a player like this in their squad.
“They want a player who is always winning in a one-to-one situation and Arjen was doing that for us all the time [against Augsburg]. He’s a very important player for this team.”
The German “winter” champions have won their last six league games on the trot and are unbeaten in 15 domestic league games this season. Three draws are the only blemish on a season that has seen 37 goals scored and just three conceded.
Bayern will fancy their chances of extending that run against a Freiburg side that has won just 2 twice this season. The draw specialist, they have shared the spoils on 8 occasions, have not won since a 2-0 home win over Schalke on the 8th November.
Away from home they have lost just one of their last five games however that matters little when the venue is the Allianz, a ground that has seen them concede 12 goals on their last three visits, including 7 in 2011.
Fortunately Freiburg will head to Munich with no new injuries, while Bayern will once again be without the likes of captain Philipp Lahm (ankle), David Alaba, Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez (all knee).
