RB Leipzig vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
The Red Bulls have been one of the most impressive teams from the German top flight lately, and they are placed in the third spot at the moment behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
However, they should have been placed at the top of the table, if not for their loss against Monchengladbach. And now, they are trailing two points behind the two titans of the Bundesliga.
Be that as it may, all is not lost for Julian Nagelsmann’s men in their pursuit of the top-most spot. They are pitted against one of the weakest teams in the competition this weekend, while the two toppers Bayern and Dortmund are taking on each other this same match-day.
As such, at least one of Der BVB or the Bavarians are expected to drop points, and should the Red Bulls secure the win, they could climb to the second position in the table at the very least.
Considering the sheer form of Nagelsmann’s men, as opposed to the struggles of their counterparts – expect Leipzig to post the win this weekend with ease.
Leipzig vs Freiburg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- In the last ten meetings, only once have the Breisgau Brazilians kept a clean sheet against this opponent.
- At this stadium, the hosts have won all but one Bundesliga encounters.

Leipzig vs Freiburg: Prediction
The Red Bulls lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Monchengladbach. In the meantime, Christian Streich’s men lost 2-4 at home the past game week, against Leverkusen.
Going on, Nagelsmann’s men were unbeaten in seven of their previous nine overall match-ups (winning six of those fixtures), and are on a four-game winning run at home.
In the process, they had scored two or more goals in six of their preceding nine fixtures, and slotted in a total of 11 goals from their previous four appearances at home.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a six-game winless run, and they remained so in 16 of their preceding 20 road trips.
On top of all that, the Red Bulls have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h encounters at this stadium, and have won all but one of their top-flight games against this rival at this venue.
And finally, they also have been one of the most offensively-talented teams in the world lately, and especially against struggling teams as that of Streich’s men.
As such, not only expect a Leipzig win, but a barrage of goals as well.
