Hamburger SV vs Freiburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).
Hamburger SV are just moments away from losing the top flight status for the first time in team’s history. They are eight points below the safe zone line with just four games left to play and only a miracle can save them from the drop.
Can the Red Shorts at least initiate the signs of one on Saturday when they host the struggling Freiburg side at Volksparkstadion? The visitors are also in the red zone, sharing the position which leads to the relegation playoffs with the likes of Mainz 05 and Wolfsburg.
Freiburg are on a horrendous run of results, They lost five and drew one of last six league ties failing to score more than once along the way. The latest of the failures happened on Monday evening when they fell -0 to fellow strugglers Mainz 05 at OPEL-ARENA. Furthermore, Freiburg are winless in last nine games away from home in all competitions.
Hamburger SV vs Freiburg: Head-to-head

Hamburger SV were more successful in games at Volksparkstadion where they won 8 and lost 4 of 18 meetings with Freiburg.
This term’s clash from Schwarzwald Stadion saw no goals at all.
Hamburger SV vs Freiburg: Prediction
Hamburg did show some signs of better days under Christian Titz recently. The Red Shorts defeated the likes of Schalke 04 3-2 in their previous home outing. They have a nice chance to make it back-to-back wins in front of the home crowd and we’ll back them to clinch the spoils against an outfit which lost five and drew one of last six Bundesliga games.
Alternatively, since Freiburg did not score more than one goal in last six league matches, we will take Hamburger SV to keep a clean sheet here at the odds of 2.40.
