Bayer Leverkusen vs SC Freiburg
2017/18 German Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 17th September 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena, Leverkusen.
The two sides that started the 2017/18 campaign on the wrong foot will collide at BayArena, the home of Bayer Leverkusen. The visitors SC Freiburg are without a victory same as the host, so both teams will push for the first triumph of the season.
Die Werkself had the huge expectations ahead of the season start. However, after three rounds, they stand winless with the most goals conceded (8). They had two difficult opponents in the first round – they suffered a defeat at Allianz Arena, while drawing Hoffenheim on the home turf. Against FSV Mainz, they suffered massive 3-0 defeat in the horrendous performance. The aforementioned defeat is a huge setback for Leverkusen, particularly as Mainz are forecasted to fight for the relegation this season.
The away side is in the similar situation as Leverkusen even though they sold their key players from the previous season. Freiburg will struggle for the survival, and a point at BayArena would be massive accomplishment for the visitors.
