Freiburg vs FC Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 11 September 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Freiburg are on a great run at the moment, and they also had a mid-table finish the last season. Meanwhile, Koln have a poor h2h record against this rival, and they had narrowly avoided relegation the previous campaign. Likely, expect a win for the former this weekend.
They are so far unbeaten this new season. In fact, they have a 100% winning record barring a single draw, and they are currently placed fourth in the table.
With the second-placed Leverkusen, and fifth-placed Dortmund pitted against each other this game week, it’s an opportunity for Freiburg to climb higher up the table.
In the meantime, Koln were placed 16th in a table of 18 in 2020-21, and they had to go through the relegation playoffs to extend their stay in the top flight.
On top of that, they are on a rather inconsistent run on the road, and they have struggled in h2h meetings over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Freiburg to register a victory this Saturday at the Dreisamstadion.

Freiburg vs Koln Prediction
Freiburg recorded a 2-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Stuttgart. In the meantime, Koln registered a 2-1 win at home against Bochum.
Going on, Freiburg are unbeaten in all competitions this season, and they have been scoring goals at a great rate at home. In fact, they had slotted in two or more goals in 12 of their past 15 appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their former twelve road trips, and in the process they had gone on a five-fixture losing run as well. In addition, they have always struggled in h2h clashes over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Freiburg.
However, Koln have scored two or more goals in seven of their preceding eight match-ups. They also seem determined to have a comparatively better campaign this time around. And for the reason, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch.
