Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Leverkusen lost a great opportunity to push themselves into the post-season mix the last match-day. No one could really criticize them beyond a point though. They were taking on a determined Dortmund. Coincidence maybe, they have got another opening to go for it. Their immediate rivals Frankfurt and Hoffenheim are taking on each other this weekend, and whatever the outcome may be, it’d be good news for Bayer. Record a win against Freiburg along with that, and it’d be Christmas for them.
Freiburg is definitely on the back foot here. They are on the road against one of the best in-form teams of the Bundesliga. Moreover, their recent form is really something not to be proud of, especially that of their away games.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg Head-to-head (h2h)
- 12 of the last 15 wins went Bayer’s way.
- Six of the last seven victories belonged to the team that hosted the tie.

- Eight of the last nine wins at this stadium were recorded by the hosts.
- Bayer registered two or more goals in three of their last five home ties.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg Prediction
Leverkusen remained unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 games and recorded 12 wins in the process. Two of the total four losses were against Dortmund and Monchengladbach. At home, they were unvanquished in 11 of their last 12 attempts, and nine of them were wins. Freiburg, on the other hand, was winless in seven of their last eight fixtures, and in 11 of their last 13 on the road. Considering the additional onus on Bayer to win the game, due to Frankfurt and Hoffenheim’s game this weekend, and the chance to walk into the top-six, we tip the hosts to figure out a way to do that.
Freiburg conceded two or more goals in four of their last five away ties, and in six of their last eight. They repeated the feat in three of their last five visits to this venue. Moreover, Leverkusen has recorded two or more goals in six of their last eight home fixtures. Reading these, along with Bayer’s desperation to win, two goals by them is a very realistic possibility.
