Freiburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction

The hosts had their four-match unbeaten streak brought to an abrupt halt, last week on the road, after Bundesliga debutants Union Berlin clinched the win by a 2-0 scorecard. It was also the first time this season that Freiburg had lost without so much as a consolation goal to their name.

At the moment, the home side are sixth on the table trailing behind RB Leipzig by no more than a point.

Their counterparts have been slumping down the table in their recent clashes and have garnered just two points from their last three games in the top-flight. Julian Nagelsmann’s men shared the spoils with Wolfsburg in their previous matchup on the road while at home, Bayer Leverkusen picked a point off the visitors.

Nevertheless, it needs saying that the RB Leipzig are currently the best away side in the cluster. The guests have tasted success in three of their last four outings, one of which was against Borussia Monchengladbach, who are presently the table toppers.

On the other hand, Freiburg have been admitting back to back draws in their last two games here. Given the superior form that the visitors are on in their clashes away from home, the favorites to come away with all three points are RB Leipzig in this one.

Furthermore, the hosts have had their scoring boots on at home, and have netted seven times from their last four games here. The away side have not been shy in front of goal either and have scored two goals or more each in three of their previous four trips on the road.

Given that all of their past head to head meetings have also been high scoring ones, count on over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards by all means.
