Leipzig vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
Leipzig caught the top shape in the final quarter of the season. Sadly, it is too late for the title challenge, but the head coach Ralf Rangnick can generally be satisfied knowing his team will play Champions League football next season. The Bulls hold the 3rd place in the league standings with an eight-point cushion on fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt.
On top, Leipzig will have the chance to lift the trophy at the end of the season as mid-week’s 1-3 victory over Hamburger SV sent them to the DFB Pokal final.
Rangnick’s troops thus won six on the spin across competitions. They bagged two or more goals in each of these six wins and they will have a great chance to keep the ball rolling and score loads on Saturday afternoon when struggling Freiburg come to visit Red Bull Arena for the Matchday No 31 tie in Bundesliga.
Leipzig vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Teams have three wins apiece coming into their eighth head to head encounter.
Home court advantage played a huge role in the history of H2H ties between these two likes.
Leipzig thus won two and drew one of three home clashes with Breisgau-Brasilianer (9-2 goal difference in the process).
The Bulls will be motivated to get revenge for a tough 3-0 loss they suffered away at Schwarzwald-Stadion in this term of Bundesliga back in early-December last year.
Leipzig vs Freiburg: Prediction
Freiburg enter the match in completely opposite mood. They lost here on the spin in Bundesliga conceding as many as 11 goals along the way (1-11 goal difference). They fell 0-4 at home to title chasers Borussia Dortmund last weekend.
Overall, Christian Streich’s men conceded goals with ease on travels so far in the season. They shipped 29 goals in 15 league games away from home. They are up against a red-hot attacking line of Leipzig’s here and we can’t imagine anything other but a comprehensive home victory as the outcome here.
