Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg Prediction

Freiburg could gain some confidence from how they responded to the challenge posted by Bremen, the last match-day. The former was on the road and had conceded quite early in the 9th minute itself. The guests were able to hit back in the 28th with the equalizer but saw once again trailing behind as the hour-mark approached.

Then, at the end of the match, practically with the last kick of the ball, in the 90+3rd minute, the visiting contingent found the back of the net via Nils Petersen, to share the spoils.

Leverkusen meanwhile, had to take on Atletico Madrid, in their CL fixture, which was their latest home game. Despite their numerical disadvantage, due to the ref sending off Nadiem Amiri, the Germans managed to record a win over Diego Simeone’s men, with a 2-1 scorecard.

This weekend, consider the fact that home teams have fared better in h2h clashes for quite a long time. In fact, the last time a team on the road won such an encounter was back in 2013. Moreover, Leverkusen also had registered 13 of the former 16 such wins, and at this venue, won five of the former six clashes.

Moreover, Bayer have lost just once since 2001 at home, against this opponent. Importantly, Leverkusen won their last two overall games, and have lost just once in front of the home crowd in their former five attempts. On the other hand, Freiburg are winless in their last two matches on the road.

Taking these stats into account, count on hosts, Leverkusen to come out on top, and record the three points on the board.
