Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Freiburg play hosts to Bayer Leverkusen at the Schwarzwald Stadium in the Bundesliga on Friday. Freiburg showed their ability to score and concede last time out in a 3-3 draw and I expect something similar against Leverkusen.
Freiburg Form & Team News
Inconsistency has hampered Freiburg this season but they will continue their push for European football against Leverkusen. In their three matches since the break ended they achieved a credible 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig but then suffered a home 1-0 defeat to Werder Bremen.
Their last match was a thrilling 3-3 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt. In their last match Freiburg drew 3-3 at Eintracht Frankfurt in what was a cracking encounter.
Vincenzo Grifo opened the scoring with goals to Nils Petersen and Vincenzo Grifo making it 3-1 in the 69th minute. Freiburg lost control however and were happy to walk away with a point.
Defender Lukas Kübler and midfielder Janik Haberer are injured. Expect Nils Petersen to come back into the starting side here.
Bayer Leverkusen Form & Team News
Bayer Leverkusen have been in fantastic form, winning 11 of their last 13 matches to stay alive in three competitions. The Werkself returned to action with a 4-1 win at Werder Bremen and 3-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Peter Bosz’s side fell to a disappointing 4-1 home defeat against Wolfsburg on Tuesday. They dominated possession but failed to make their dominance count, Julian Baumgartlinger’s late goal a mere consolation.
Versatile defender Lars Bender is out with a foot injury and forward Kevin Volland is likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.
Expect manager Peter Bosz to make changes here with midfielders Julian Baumgartlinger, Exequiel Palacios, winger Leon Bailey and striker Lucas Alario all chances to start.
