RB Leipzig is hosting SC Freiburg at Red Bull Arena in round 7 in the German Bundesliga.
After 2 losses in a row, one in the Champions League, and 1 in Bundesliga, Leipzig is back on the winning track with an impressive win in the Champions League earlier this week. Leipzig was hosting PSG in that game, and they were great with 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 6th minute, Leipzig stepped up their game, and their goalkeeper saved a penalty kick in the 16th minute which gave Leipzig a huge boost. In the 41st, and the 57th minute Leipzig has scored 2 goals, and they have won that game 2-1. In Bundesliga, Leipzig is in 3rd place with 13 points, 12 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals so far this season. Leipzig was playing against M’gladbach on the road in their last Bundesliga game, and they were solid with 51% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 79% of the correct passes. Leipzig was struggling in the attacking end, and they lost this game 1-0. Poulsen, Forsberg, and Angelino have each scored 2 goals for Leipzig, while Olmo added 3 assists. Laimer, Klostermann, and Upamecano are all injured, and they will miss this game. Leipzig is doing good in both competitions, and I think their luck has turned after beating PSG. I think we will see the old Leipzig in this game.
Freiburg has started the season well, but they haven’t won any of their last 6 games. Freiburg is outside the relegation zone, but only thanks to the other bad team like Koln, Mainz, and Schalke. Freiburg is in 13th place with 6 points, 8 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals. In their last Bundesliga game, Freiburg was hosting Leverkusen, and they have had 40% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Freiburg got ahead in the 3rd minute, but Leverkusen turned the game around until the half time. In the second half Freiburg conceded 2 more goals, and they ended up losing this match 1-4. Petersen is the leading goalscorer for Freiburg with 3 goals, while Grifo added 2 goals. Grifo also added 2 assists. Haberer and Flekken are the only 2 injured players for Freiburg at this time. Freiburg is a solid team, but they have conceded at least 1 goal in all of their 6 games in Bundesliga this season while scoring in 5 of those 6 games. I don’t think Freiburg will have any problems with staying in Bundesliga, but I don’t expect to see them as high as the last season.
Freiburg hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, while Leipzig hasn’t lost any of their last 6 home games. Leipzig was dominant at home against Freiburg, and I see it staying that way. I’m sticking with Leipzig at home.
