Historic duels: SC Freiburg against Bayern Munich

On Saturday, FC Bayern Munich welcomes the unbeaten Freiburg to a top game. Freiburg has never played third against the record champions. The historical games between Bavaria and Freiburg in the picture gallery.

August 7, 1993: In 1993 the sports club was promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time. For the debut in the upper house, the Breisgauer had to go to the Munich Olympic Stadium. There the home side led 1-0 after just eight minutes. 16 minutes and a brace from Adolfo Valencia later it was 3-0. Oliver Freund scored the first Bundesliga goal for SC Freiburg. There was nothing more to celebrate that day – it was a 1: 3 defeat.

November 27, 1993: Bayern came to the Breisgau for the second leg. Instead of Baden wine, they were given three gates there. All hits were garnished by Uwe Wassmer. The game ended 3-1, cheers!

August 23, 1994: After the defeat in the previous season, Bayern thirsted for revenge. But after 20 minutes Oliver Kahn had to get the ball out of his own goal for the third time. Numerous frustration fouls and a wildly gesticulating coach Giovanni Trapattoni did little to help Bayern. On the contrary: the game ended 5: 1. The sensation gave SC Freiburg momentum for the season, which it finished in third place. Bayern were only sixth.

May 10, 1997: SC Freiburg was already relegated three game days before the end of the season. FC Bayern was still fighting for the championship. When it was 0-0 shortly before the end, Giovanni Trapattoni replaced Jürgen Klinsmann, Bayern’s most dangerous striker. Jürgen Klinsmann’s frustration was felt in an advertising bin. The national player kicked them with full force and punched a hole in his shoe size. But it no longer rattled on the pitch, but stayed at 0-0. The demolished bin can now be admired in the FC Bayern Museum.


April 12, 2000: After eleven minutes, Bayern were 1-0 down. The future master turned the game outnumbered. But another hit than the one to make it 2-1 went down in the history books. Shortly before the final whistle, a Freiburg fan threw a golf ball against Oliver Kahn’s temple. After the end of the game, Uli Hoeneß had to hold back the bloodied goalkeeper who railed against SC record player Andi Zeyer and the audience.

September 10, 2011: With a 7-0 victory in the Allianz Arena, the record champions suffered the greatest defeat in the club’s history for the Breisgauer. Mario Gomez was the first Bayern player since Giovane Élber to score a four-pack. Substitute Nils Petersen scored the last goal of the game in the 89th minute.

May 16, 2015: Keyword Nils Petersen and the 89th minute: On the penultimate matchday, the relegation-threatened SC Freiburg urgently needed points. Against the team of Pep Guardiola, which was already established as champions, probably nobody bet on the SC. The early Bayern leadership equalized the Freiburg, until shortly before the end everything pointed to a draw. Four minutes before the end, ex-Bayern striker Nils Petersen came into the game and scored – of course – in the 89th minute to make it 2-1. Despite another last-minute goal from Petersen on the last day of the match, SC Freiburg was relegated. Freiburg’s fourth victory over FC Bayern was the last for the time being.
