SC Freiburg is welcoming Bayer 04 Leverkusen to Schwarzwald-Stadion in round 6 in the German Bundesliga.
Freiburg is in bad form, and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games. During this stretch, Freiburg has conceded 10 goals while scoring only 3 goals. In their last Bundesliga game, Freiburg was playing against Union Berlin on the road, and they have had 50% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Freiburg got ahead in the 34th minute, but they conceded a goal in the 36th minute. We haven’t seen any more goals in this game, and the final score was 1-1. Freiburg is in 13th place in the Bundesliga standings with 6 points, 6 scored goals, and 9 conceded goals. Petersen and Grifo have each scored 2 goals, while Lienhart and Sallai have both scored 1 goal for Freiburg this season. Gunter, Sallai, Holer, and Grifo have all added 1 assist. Haberer and Flekken are both injured, and they will miss this game for Freiburg. Freiburg was just outside the Europa League zone last season, but they have lost some players in the offseason, and I don’t think they will have nearly as good this season.
Leverkusen is still undefeated in Bundesliga this season, and they are in 4th place with 9 points, 6 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. In the Europa League, Bayer has 1 win and 1 loss, but they are still at the top of their group. Leverkusen has lost their last Europa League game to Slavia Prague on the road. In their last Bundesliga game, Leverkusen was hosting Augsburg, and they have had 65% of ball possession in that game, 7 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 88% of accurate passes. Leverkusen was the better team in this match, and they have won 3-1, but this score could have been a lot higher if not for Augsburg’s goalkeeper. Alario is the leading goalscorer for Leverkusen with 3 goals, while Schick, Demirbay, Diaby, and Pohjanpalo each added 1 goal. Leon Bailey has added 2 assists for Leverkusen this season. Arias and Paulinho are both injured, and they will miss this game. Bayer Leverkusen has had a solid game in the Europa League, but they conceded a red card in the 22nd minute, and because of that they have lost this match.
The trends are heavily on Leverkusen’s side in this matchup, and they are still undefeated in the league. Freiburg is in bad form, they have not depth, and their quality is much lower than the last season. Leverkusen has also lost some players in the offseason, but they are still the better team here. We are getting Leverkusen at a fantastic price, and I’m taking it.
