Bundesliga: Jeong excited ahead of Munich return
Freiburg frontman Wooyeong Jeong is hoping to show former club Bayern Munich how much he has improved by helping bring down the Bundesliga leaders at the Allianz Arena.
Freiburg might be third in the Bundesliga and the only unbeaten side left in the competition, but they face a big challenge to win in Munich for the first time in their history and are 14/1 to do this.
Freiburg aiming for history
The odds are stacked against Christian Streich's surprise packages but one-time Bayern starlet Jeong is backing himself to land a blow or two against his former side, and this game is available as part of our European Soccer Live Streaming Highlights.
The South Korean forward, who has scored three times this season, first moved to the Bayern academy in 2018.

Jeong played twice for the Bavarian giants' first team – in a pair of 5-1 wins against Benfica in the Champions League and Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga – before leaving to join Freiburg in 2019 to get more first-team action.
However, he finished up back on loan in Munich playing for the reserves, who he helped to the third division title in 2019-20.
The 22-year-old scored four times back at Freiburg last season, earned a first cap for his country and is now leading the line in a side who are taking the Bundesliga by storm.

And he cannot wait to show Robert Lewandowski and co that he has turned into the real deal.
