Bayern Munich return to action on Saturday afternoon, as they travel to Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

The international break provided a halt to a tricky period for Julian Nagelsmann's men, who sandwiched a thumping 7-1 Champions League win over Salzburg with disappointing 1-1 Bundesliga draws that allowed Borussia Dortmund to close their lead at the summit to four points.

Just before breaking up for international duty, however, Die Roten looked to have turned a corner by regaining a six-point advantage at the top of the league courtesy of a typical 4-0 thrashing of Union Berlin.

Looking to make it two wins on the trot, Bayern head to high-flying Freiburg, who sit fifth in the table having avoided defeat in their last six league outings.

Here's 90min's preview of this clash.

Freiburg team news

The trio of Nicolas Hofler, Philipp Lienhart and Jeong Woo-Yeong are all doubtful to feature the hosts, having all tested positive for Covid-19 last week.

Elsewhere, Yannik Keitel will certainly miss out with a broken toe, while Kevin Schade and Lukas Kubler are also likely to remain sidelined through injury.


Bayern Munich team news

Long-term absentee Alphonso Davies has returned to light training for Bayern, although this weekend's clash should come too early for a much-anticipated return for the Canadian and Niklas Sule, who is recovering from a hamstring problem.

Meanwhile, Leon Goretzka and Benjamin Pavard have returned from their respective issues, although will have to be assessed prior to kick off.


Freiburg vs Bayern Munich prediction

Following their 4-0 victory last time out to put an end to an unusually rocky patch, the Bayern squad was broken up at quite an inopportune time a couple of weeks ago.

But don't expect a swift international break to scupper their chances of finally rebuilding some momentum. A trip to Freiburg is far from an easy task but, despite the hosts' impressive campaign thus far, the visiting side will expect nothing but a key victory.

A win would really leave Borussia Dortmund with it all to do - as if that wasn't the case already - and, being Bayern Munich, a win is the only logical prediction.

Prediction: Freiburg 1-3 Bayern Munich
