After a competitive opening spell, Freiburg enjoyed the game’s first chance when Lucas Höler was sent clean through on goal. His goalbound effort was diverted wide by Sven Ulreich, and it proved to be a turning point as Bayern quickly opened up a two-goal lead. Thomas Müller forced home goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow into an own goal on 25 minutes, before Corentin Tolisso lashed in a sensational second from all of 35 yards.
Christian Streich made two changes at the start of the second half, but those plans were thrown into disarray when Sandro Wagner, starting in place of Robert Lewandowski, bundled in a third to effectively kill the game. Müller then got the goal his wonderful performance deserved with an excellent finish from Joshua Kimmich’s near-post corner.
