Bayern Munich dominated SC Freiburg in typical Rekordmeister fashion these days: smooth, smothering control afforded by early goals.
While the Bavarians might have been more clinical, the visitors did not get within a shout of scoring on the day — 30% possession, two shots, zero on goal. Luck played a factor in several of Bayern’s opportunities going either in or out, but all in all, it was a day of scintillating individual quality on display, headlined by Leroy Sané, including his disallowed goal, as well as Kingsley Coman, who probably did not intend to shoot with his first.
The positive result leaves Bayern still just third in the Bundesliga table as we round into October, with Leverkusen and Stuttgart narrowly ahead having each notched six wins in seven games (Bayern has five). But it is hard not to feel good about the result and the way the team is playing.
Here’s how German outlet kicker rated the performances; have your say below the jump!
