Jupp Heynckes made a positive start in his fourth term at Bayern Munich winning 5-0 against Freiburg
Bayern Munich welcomed their 2012/13 treble winner manager with a 5-0 treat against Frieburg. Jupp Heynckes at 72 has been given charge of Bayern Munich for the fourth time in his coaching career. Carlo Ancelotti’s feud with Bayern’s senior players led to departure of the Italian manager, and once again Heynckes was convinced to come out of retirement and take the helm at Allianz Arena’s dugout.
His fourth inning with the club couldn’t have started better than this way. It looks like a happy Bayern side as they put Freiburg in a difficult situation within first ten minutes. Arjen Robben, who scored both goals for Netherlands in his final game for the country started the cruise against Freiburg.
Robben forces a save from Schwolow in the 6th minute and a minute later Freiburg were 1-0 down. David Alaba crossed a ball for Thomas Muller, who shots and it take a deflection from Julian Schuster and then another from the Freiberg keeper Schwolow to give an own goal lead to Bavarians.

Robben shot was saved by Schwolow again but it fell perfectly for Kingsley Coman to make his first contribution of the season. The French international earned his first Bundesliga goal of the season.
Thiago Alacantara earned the third goal for the Bavarians with his composed finish in 63rd minute taking the game away from Freiburg. And if it’s a Bayern rout, how could Robert Lewandwski goes out missing from the scoresheet. The Polish striker made it 4-0 in 75th minute with the help of Muller’s good ball in.
