Freiburg vs RB Leipzig
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).

Leipzig narrowed the gap behind the second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach with a confident 2-0 victory over the Foals last weekend at Red Bull Arena. The Bulls thus successfully bounced back from consecutive defeats to Wolfsburg (Bundesliga) and Salzburg (Europa League). Timo Werner was the hero of the day on Sunday when he bagged a brace against the in-form Foals.

Nevertheless, Leipzig showed a completely opposite face on travels in recent weeks. They lost three on the spin on the road in all competitions netting no more than a single goal in the process. Can such negative trend be stopped on Saturday afternoon when Ralf Rangnick’s men travel to Schwarzwald-Stadion to take on Freiburg?

Freiburg vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head

  • Teams snatched one win each when they met each other in the previous term of Bundesliga.
  • Leipzig won three of last four head to head affairs.
  • Freiburg were, however, more successful in games at Schwarzwald-Stadion where they won two and lost one of three against the Bulls.
  • Three or more goals were seen in all of last five head to head outings between these two likes.

Freiburg vs RB Leipzig: Prediction

Leipzig come into this as favourites following the mentioned victory over M’Gladbach. Freiburg were in a poor shape of late. They are winless in last four league matches. Nevertheless, it is hard to recognize the value of the 1.80 odds offered for the away win here if we know the Bulls lost three in a row on travels across competitions.

Furthermore, the visitors have a negative record in H2H matches at Schwarzwald-Stadion. Bresigau-Brasilianer actually lost only one of past six home outings in the league. We thus have to try with the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 2.05 here.

Since Leipzig boast league’s best defensive record, we don’t expect to see goals galore on the occasion. The alternative pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 2.20.

Freiburg vs RB Leipzig: Bet Tips

  • Freiburg or Draw @ 2.05 (21/20)
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.20 (6/5).
