SC Freiburg is hosting VfL Wolfsburg at Schwarzwald-Stadion in round 2 in German Bundesliga.
Freiburg is continuing to surprise me, and they are playing in great form. Freiburg hasn’t lost any of their 7 games, including their DFB Pokal match, and their first Bundesliga game of the season. Freiburg was facing Stuttgart on the road in their Bundesliga game, and they have had only 36% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 70% of accurate passes. Despite being the weaker team in this match, Freiburg has scored 2 unanswered goals in the first half, and they scored another goal just as the second half started. Freiburg almost gambled away their 0-3 lead after Stuttgart scored 2 goals in the second half, but Freiburg was able to defend well, and they have won this match 2-3. Freiburg is in 6th place in the standings with 3 points, 3 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals. Haberer, Flekken, and Til are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Petersen, Sallai, and Grifo have each scored 1 goal for Freiburg so far, while Sallai and Holer added 1 assist each. Freiburg was unlucky last season, and the Europa League escaped from them by just 1 point. This season has started well for Freiburg, but I don’t think it will be as good as the last one.
Wolfsburg is also in great form, and they haven’t lost any of their last 7 games. Earlier this week, Wolfsburg was playing against Desna in the Europa League qualifications, and they have won that match 2-0 at home. Wolfsburg’s final opponent in the qualifications will be AEK Athens, a strong team from Greece. In their first game of the Bundesliga season, Wolfsburg was playing against Leverkusen at home, and they have had 40% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. Neither of the teams was in a good offensive mood, and this match ended in a 0-0 draw. William, Mbabu, and Pongracic are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this game. Wolfsburg is still waiting on their first goal this season, but they certainly have the quality to repeat the last season. If Wolfsburg ends up playing in the Europa League, it might be tough for them to play in both competition, and it could take a toll on this team, and because of that, Wolfsburg could end up a little lower in the Bundesliga standings.
Both Freiburg and Wolfsburg are in good form, and while Freiburg was better offensively in their last Bundesliga game, Wolfsburg was the better team defensively. The trends are evenly split here, and this match could go either way, but I will rather stick to goals here.
