Freiburg vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).
Hoffenheim were just powerless in the maiden Bundesliga fixture of the year as they fell 1-3 to reigning champions Bayern Munich in front of the home crowd at WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena. They thus ended a six-draw streak and are now winless in past seven Bundesliga affairs. Such thread saw them slide down to 8th position in the standings. The top-four finish is now six points away and Julian Nagelsmann’s troops can’t quite afford more slip-ups if they are to challenge a place in the Champions League football next year.
This is why Saturday’s trip to Freiburg in Breisgau will be of a huge importance for Die Kraichgauer. They will be hoping to take advantage of defensive holes of their rivals as Breisgau-Brasilianer shipped three goals in a straightforward defeat away at Eintracht Frankfurt seven days ago. Freiburg also allowed two goals in each of two mid-season friendlies against Mainz 05.
Freiburg vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head
Freiburg will rely on the head to head tradition here.
They were a very tough nut to crack for Hoffenheim in matches at Schwarzwald-Stadion where Breisgau-Brasilianer won 5, drew 4 and lost only 1 of 10 against Die Kraichgauer.
We have to mention that all of past 11 head to head outings between these two likes saw both teams on the scoresheet.
Freiburg vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
We have reasons to expect the continuation of a high-scoring head to head trend here. As many as eight of past nine outings Hoffenheim played in Bundesliga saw goals scored at both ends. Given Freiburg allowed three last weekend against Eintracht Frankfurt, we also see Hoffenheim to score two or more goals in the match as a bet well worth backing at the odds of 1.61.
Four of last five games Freiburg played in front of the home crowd also produced goals at both ends. Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is the best way to go at 1.72 odds.
