Freiburg vs Stuttgart
Date: Sunday, 16 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg im Breisgau).
Freiburg and Stuttgart will be hoping to put their dreadful starts to the new Bundesliga campaign behind coming into the last game of the Matchday No 3 on Sunday afternoon at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
Both teams were struggling badly before the international break. Christian Streich’s men lost to Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim conceding five goals in the process. They also allowed two goals in the DFB Pokal tie with the lower-division Energie Cottbus. Freiburg still advanced, though, after a penalty-shootout series.
Stuttgart were even worse, as odd as it sounds. Die Schwaben did not score a single goal in three official games of the season. It all began with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Hansa Rostock in DFB Pokal as such poor form was brought into league as well. The Reds fell to Mainz 05 (1-0) and Bayer Munich (0-3).
Freiburg vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head
Stuttgart have a positive head to head record against Freiburg.
The Reds won 22 and lost 11 of 36 H2H games (only three draws in the process).
Stuttgart completely dominated this match-up in the moist recent history, winning five and drawing one of past six meetings with Freiburg.
The Reds bagged two or more goals in eight of last nine encounters against Freiburg.
Freiburg vs Stuttgart: Prediction
The trip to Schwarzwald-Stadion should really give a nice chance to Stuttgart to recover from such a dismal start to the season. Freiburg were quite vulnerable at the back shipping seven goals in three official outings so far.
Knowing that the Reds bagged two or more goals in eight of last nine head to head affairs, we do find the value in backing the visitors to keep such trend going and bag more than one goal here at 2.62 odds.
Tayfun Korkut has names capable of scoring in his ranks in the likes of Mario Gomez, Anastasios Donis, Daniel Didavi, Christian Gentner etc. They will all have plenty of space to deliver past the struggling defensive line of Freiburg’s here.
