SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen

“Freiburg are coming off a crazy 3-3 game with strugglers Frankfurt. Despite creating few attempts, the Breisgau-Brazilians were clinical in finding the net three times. They could not hold on however, and it is just one win in their last six. The hosts still have a chance of pushing for the top six, but face a difficult Bayer Leverkusen sides. Peter Bosz will be very disappointed at his team’s collapse against Wolfsburg last time out. I predict a win for Die Werkself but can see both sides finding the net.

Can Freiburg push for a Europa League spot?

This team went another matchweek where we saw at least one goal in their game. So far, Freiburg have either scored or conceded a goal in every Bundesliga game this season. They are coming off a frantic 3-3 draw with Frankfurt, a game they created little but were in a two-goal lead. The inconsistency is frustrating for Christian Streich’s team, who on their day can beat anyone. Earlier in the season, Freiburg beat RB Leipzig 2-1 at home and they tend only lose by a goal.

With a better home record than away, Freiburg would have perhaps fancied themselves in a fixture like this. However, with the loss of home advantage, they suffered a surprise defeat in their last home game to Werder Bremen. Freiburg have only had five Bundesliga games this season where neither side has scored a goal in the first half. In the other 23 matches, 82%, there has been at least one goal scored or conceded this season. They have conceded 13 of those goals and scored 10, including their three of their last four matches.

A wake up call for Leverkusen

After beating Werder Bremen and Borussia Monchengladbach in remarkable style on the Bundesliga return, Bayer suffered a heavy defeat. Wolfsburg’s set piece specialists were clinical at the BayArena last time out, putting four past Leverkusen in a 4-1 defeat for Peter Bosz’s men. A surprising defeat, and a more surprising scoreline, has now halted chances of finishing in the top four. With Monchengladbach and Leipzig dropping points, an opportunity to go third went. However, they can secure third spot heading into the weekend with a win against Freiburg.

It is likely too soon to put Kevin Volland back in the side after just returning to training. Defensively, Leverkusen may struggle again in this one. Bayer expect Jonathan Tah and Lars Bender to miss this Friday night clash. B04 have seen goals aplenty upon their return to the Bundesliga. 16% of their goals scored for and against have come in the last three games, with at least four goals scored for or against. Another high-scoring game is likely in this one.
