Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Sunday, 7 October 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK 13:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).
Die Werkself quickly recovered from a tough home defeat to table-toppers Dortmund by beating Cypriot AEK Larnaca 4-2 in Thursday’s Europa League action. Bayer conceded the opening goal but went on to complete a comeback, inspired by substitute Lucas Alario who notched a brace after coming on at the half time.
Heiko Herrlich’s men are now two from two in the continental competition after beating Ludogorets 2-3 on the opening day. Things haven’t been going in quite the same fashion in domestic league, though. Bayer did win two on the bounce after making a dreadful start to the campaign, but they could not see such streak continuing last weekend when they fell 2-4 to Borussia Dortmund.
Byer were two goals up until the hour-mark, but allowed as many as four within the final half an hour of the affair to stay in the bottom half of the standings with just 6 points from 6 games. Will they be able to get the domestic campaign up and running with a three-pointer on Sunday at Schwarzwald-Stadion?
Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head
- Bayer Leverkusen lead the head to head tie by nine wins coming into their 39th encounter with Breisgau-Brasilianer.
- Die Werkself took four points from last term meetings with Freiburg keeping back-to-back clean sheets (4-0 and 0-0).
- It is interesting to note that only two of last six head to head affairs saw goals at both ends.
Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
It’s been a roller-coaster campaign for Freiburg so far in the season as well. They started poorly, picked up seven points from three straight games and then went on to lose the previous round tie 4-1 away at Augsburg.
Christian Streich’s men were also very easy to break down of late. They allowed at least three goals in three of last five Bundesliga ties. Knowing that Leverkusen play attacking football, we just have to take the Over 2.5 goals FT bet with higher stakes at the odds of 1.72. Braver tipsters can go with Bayer to win & BTTS at 4.00.
