Bayern drop another Bundesliga game.

Tip Of The Cap: Mitchell Weiser started in a far more attacking formation today, and he made the most of it. He's shown us multiple times this season that he has the ability to play at this level and, once again, had a great moment in the match. With a quick side-step of a Freiburg defender, Weiser found himself open to make an easy pass to Bastian Schweinsteiger for the early tap-in.

Golf Clap: Nils Petersen. The former Bayern forward come into the match in the second half with the intent on making an impact of some sort, and he certainly did that. With Jerome Boateng caught in no-man's land, Petersen was left wide open in the middle of the park on a counterattack. With a perfect ball played into the box, Petersen just had to pass the ball into the back of the net. Thankfully, Petersen celebrated the goal that goes a long ways toward keeping Freiburg in the top division. I hate when players refuse to celebrate against a former team that gave up on them.

Standing Ovation: In his 500th match in a Bayern Munich jersey, Bastian Schweinsteiger receives a standing ovation. No, his play in the midfield wasn't perfect today, but this loss isn't his fault. Schweinsteiger opened the scoring for FCB and nearly added a second on a beautiful free kick.

Meister Of The Match: SC Freiburg. In the midst of a heated relegation battle, Freiburg had everything to play for against Bayern. The Bundesliga is a better league with a club like Freiburg in the fold. Even though Bayern had nothing to play for on the day, Freiburg outplayed FC Bayern in the second half and picked up their winning goal to move them ever so closer to avoiding relegation. Oh, and it was former Bayern player Nils Petersen that scored the winner for Freiburg. Congratulations to SCF.
