Date: Saturday, 3rd February 2018
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg).
An electrifying contest is expected when the two inform teams in Bundesliga – Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburg lock horns on Saturday evening.
Freiburg held Dortmund to a 2-2 draw last week to extend their unbeaten run to 8 games. The team who were once relegation bound has now pulled 7 points clear off the relegation zone.
There has been 4 wins and 4 draws in Freiburg’s magical run, which a huge turnaround is considering the team managed only 1 win from their first 12 matches of the season. Besides, they are still in touching distance of European qualification spots with the second placed Leverkusen being 10 points away.
Coming back to home, Freiburg can boast of a strong form. The last 4 games saw 3 wins and 1 draw with the strong sides like Leipzig and Gladbach the latest teams to fall Schwarzwald-Stadion.
Meantime, Bayer Leverkusen bagged a 2-0 win against Mainz to register the second win on the bounce after falling to Bayern Munich in early January. Heiko Herrlich’s men thereby moved to second in the league table, yet level on points with Schalke and only 3 points ahead of 7th placed Borussia Monchengladbach.
Form-wise, Leverkusen has been on a sublime run. Bayern are the only team to beat them since October and 8 wins and 6 draws came from the last 15 matches. Their away form is particularly good, unbeaten in 7 with 4 wins coming from last six.
