Ingolstadt vs Freiburg
Date: Wednesday 21st December, 2016
Kick-off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Audi-Sportpark, Ingolstadt.
Maik Walpurgis has been enjoying his best days since taking charge of Ingolstadt as he managed to escape the rock-bottom of Bundesliga with consecutive victories over RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen. The team played a terrific defense keeping the clean sheet against the leaders of the competition two weeks ago, while they also managed to end Bayer’s promising streak by beating them with 1 – 2 at BayArena thanks to goals from Alfredo Morales and Almog Cohen.
Freiburg, on the other side, have been struggling a lot defensively since the start of the season. The team led by Christian Streich has been playing much better sat the very start of the season, especially at their Schwarzwald-Stadion. Brazilians of Breisgau just do not seem to be showing impressive performances they used to show until November. However, we must mention that they managed to hold Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04 to 1 – 1 draws in last two matches on road.
Ingolstadt vs Freiburg: Head-to-Head Stats
This will be the first ever head to head between the two teams in the top flight of German football, as they have faced each other only twice so far, back in 2008/09 season in 2. Bundesliga when each of the teams took a home victory.
Ingolstadt vs Freiburg: Prediction
This is a pretty tough call. We have in-form Ingolstadt who have won two in a row, but the 11/10 odds are just not worth it since the hosts are among the weakest teams in the competition in general. Instead, we would rather advise you to back the visitors not to lose the match at 3/4 which indeed does represent the value knowing that they have managed to do so against Schalke and Leverkusen in last two games on road. Alternatively, draw at the half time seems to be a decent option, set at 11/10.
