SC Freiburg vs Hamburger SV
Date: Monday, 20th September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Dreisamstadion, Freiburg.
Freiburg suffered their second defeat of the season as they fell by 3 goals to no reply at Koln on the weekend. Both their defeats so far has came away from home. While they got the better of a strong Borussia Monchengladbach by 2 goals to 1 in their lone home match. It is also an understatement that their chances of staying up this season will be heavily dependant of their results at home.
While Hamburger SV are win-less after the first three matches of the 2016/17 season. A home defeat to RB Leipzig was totally unexpected, but it is also surprising that they went down by 4 goals. They also lost to Bayer Leverkusen away from home in the previous week and their only point so far is from a home draw against 1-1 draw. Bruno Labbadia has heavily invested in building his squad this summer, but the dividends are yet to pay-off.

Freiburg vs Hamburger: Prediction
Freiburg could go into this match as slight favourites on the back of their good form at home and also the poor results Hamburg are accumulating in away games. But Hamburg have a decent record at Freiburg and they have lost only once in their last 8 visits. And 5 of those 8 matches were draws and a similar result is expected from this mid-week fixture.
Also 10 of the last 12 games between these sides have registered less than 3 goals. So under 2.5 goals is an option for this match. And based on the above analysis the full time correct score of 1-1 at the odds of 6.50 is a decent bet to put your extra cents on.
