Freiburg vs Wolfsburg
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Both teams have been absolutely tearing apart their oppositions lately, and have set high hopes for the season. They did underachieve a little bit the last time around – and that should fuel them going forward this campaign.
The Wolves finished seventh in the table in 2019-20, and thus secured the final Europan ticket allotted to the Bundesliga. However, it was just an entry into the qualification round, and not a direct ticket to the main competition.
The case of the Breigau Brazilians were even hard. They finished eighth just below Oliver Glasner’s men (just one point fewer), and thus has to bid goodbye to their European dreams for the tiniest of margins.
Suffice it to say that these two are direct rivals for the few select spots at the top of the table, and the victor of this upcoming encounter will have a huge mental edge going forward.
Expect a fierce game this Sunday. Moreover, fixtures between these two teams have almost always ended with plenty of goals as well.
Likely, expect a goal-fest this weekend.
