Freiburg vs Wolfsburg
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg).
Freiburg will continue their complicated schedule at the start of the New Year with Saturday’s home affair against 6th-placed Wolfsburg.
They struggled to keep things tight at the back in recent outings allowing two or more goals in each of three league ties in 2019.
Breisgau-Brasilianer shipped as many as seven goals in back-to-back defeats to Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim. They at least ended the losing thread last weekend away at Mercedes-Benz-Arena.
Nevertheless, the head coach Christian Streich was once again disappointed with another poor defensive display from his side which shipped two goals within eight minutes.
It was substitute Florian Niederlechner who saved a point for Breisgau-Brasilianer bagging the equalizer as late as in the fourth minute of the stoppage time.
Can Freiburg finally keep things quiet at the back here against Wolfsburg?
Freiburg vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head
Wolfsburg were on a thread of five wins in six games against Breisgau-Brasilianer, but Freiburg came on top when teams took on each other in the first part of this season (1-3 at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA).
Just two of last seven head to head games saw the BTTS option “coming in”.
Overall, the Wolves lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into 32nd encounter with Freiburg.
Freiburg vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
The visitors enjoyed a super strong finish to the previous year, but they struggled to find such form after the winter break.
Back-to-back defeats to Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen seriously damaged team’s dreams of challenging the top-four finish and a place in the Champions League next term.
Nevertheless, Bruno Labbadia’s troops showed a phenomenal fighting spirit to rebound from such failures and see off Hertha BSC last weekend 0-1 away in the German capital.
The win left the Wolves at 6th place in the league ladder. It will certainly lift team’s spirits ahead of this tie at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
Wout Weghorst took his league tally to seven goals when he bagged the only goal of the game against Hertha last Saturday.
He should have plenty of room to keep the good form going and add to this tally past the struggling defensive line of Freiburg’s here.
