Freiburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Analysis

Leipzig, after starting off the season rather poorly with just 1 win in their first 5 games, they have seemed to return to winning ways with back-to-back victories. The club has shown no sign of solidity in the Champion League and with 2 losses in 2 games they sit bottom of their Champions League group.

Among the various issues the club faces, finding the back of the net isn’t one of them. They have scored the most goals by any club outside the top 3 teams in the league. With 3 wins and a draw to their name they sit in 8th position in the league with 10 points to their tally, 5 points off their opponents this weekend and 6 points off the leaders.

Freiburg fans could not have asked for a better start to the season, as they sit in 4th position 7 games into the league with 15 points to their tally. They have registered 5 wins and 3 draws in the season.

The one area Christian Streich would like to improve his team is in terms of scoring, especially in low scoring games against defensively solid teams. As they have scored just a goal combined in three of their matches that ended in a draw.

Despite registering 2 huge victories against 2 teams that are fighting for relegation in their last 2 league matches. The Red Bulls under the management of American Jesse Marsch is nowhere near the team they were both domestically and in European competitions. We do not see them winning this fixture despite their odds.

Freiburg should win this contest given their near perfect run this season and home support to their favour, despite their opponents having an advantage historically in h2h matches.

We are backing Freiburg to win against the odds in a high scoring fixture.
