Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Freiburg Prediction & Match Preview

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Freiburg
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 15 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Dusseldorf).

Freiburg pulled off their best performance of the season to storm past the likes of RB Leipzig 3-0 at home last weekend. They got off to a dream start when Nils Petersen bagged the first-minute goal. Gianluca Waldschmidt made no mistake from the spot to double their lead at the death of the first half, while Mike Frantz made it three seven minutes into the second.

Breisgau-Brasilianer will have a nice opportunity to back up such result and improve their poor away record on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Merkur Spiel-Arena to take on the rock-bottomed Fortuna Dusseldorf side. Freiburg head into the game as form favourites given they offered decent displays in each of past three Bundesliga rounds.

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Freiburg Prediction

The hosts looked to have found the wanted rhythm when they bagged seven goals in two successive affairs against Hertha (4-1) and Bayern Munich (3-3). Nevertheless, they returned to the old habits in past two weeks after consecutive defeats to Mainz (0-1) and Werder Bremen (3-1).

Fortuna have the second weakest defensive record in the entire league with 32 goals conceded in 14 matches so far. It will be the music to the ears of Petersen and Waldschmidt who should have plenty of room to back up the fine displays form the Leipzig tie.

We’ll back the visitors at more than attractive 2.62 odds as the main betting option. You can also try with Freiburg to net two or more goals on the afternoon at 2.37, while Petersen is 2.25 to score anytime for Breisgau-Brasilianer.
