Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Freiburg host Bayer Leverkusen at Schwarzwald-Stadion in what should be an exciting Bundesliga match. Freiburg saw six goals scored in their last match and another end to end match is on the cards against Leverkusen.

Freiburg Form


Freiburg have been inconsistent this season as they continue to chase Europa League qualification. They won 3-1 home against Union Berlin before the break and resumed with a tough 1-1 draw at Leipzig. 

Christian Streich’s side returned to the Schwarzwald-Stadion with an unlucky 1-0 defeat against Werder Bremen. Their last match was a thrilling 3-3 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

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.

Bayer Leverkusen Form


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.

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.
