There will be no change in Freiburg's approach against Bayern Munich, goalkeeper Oliver Baumann has said.

The club from the south-west are just one point above the drop zone and and therefore their match against the current leaders will be another important opportunity to keep their Bundesliga survival hopes alive.

A team which finished fifth in the Bundesliga last year, qualifying for the Europa League, are now struggling to maintain their place among the 18 top flight clubs. But that is, for the 23-year-old "completely normal".

Speaking to Bayern Munich's official magazine Baumann said, "Competing at the top of the table is definitely an exception for us. It's completely normal for a club like Freiburg to always be fighting to stay up. And we'll have done a decent job if we succeed in avoiding the drop."


The team however will continue to stick to their gameplan, according to Baumann, with the game against Bayern Munich being no different.

"There shouldn't be any difference in the way you play or in terms of commitment.

"We've got to produce our best performances in every game if we're to stay in the Bundesliga".

As far as tactical details are concerned, the 23-year-old believes that manager Christian Streich is a better person to ponder it than anyone else.

"We haven't talked about tactics yet. That's more a question for the coach", the German added.
