SC Freiburg is welcoming Hoffenheim to Europa-Park-Stadion in round 15 of the German Bundesliga. Freiburg is on fire right now, they have bounced back nicely, and they are a tough team to beat. Hoffenheim is in excellent form, they are on a 3-game winning streak in Bundesliga right now, and they are scoring a ton of goals.
Freiburg is now in 4th place in Bundesliga with 25 points, 25 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals. Unfortunately for Freiburg, they are out of the title run, and that is mostly because they don’t have a lot of depth. In that game against Borussia M’gladbach last weekend, Freiburg has had only 35% of ball possession, but they have had 7 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and only 67% of ball possession, but Freiburg was incredibly effective in the attacking end. With 6 scored goals in the first half, and with incredibly solid defense in the second half, Freiburg has won this game 0-6. Holer and Lienhart are the leading goalscorers for Freiburg with 4 goals each. Grifo has added 5 assists. I love seeing smaller teams being this high in the standings and go against the big teams, and Freiburg is definitely going in the right direction this season.
Hoffenheim has won 5 of their last 6 games, and they have scored 11 goals in their last 3 games. In their latest Bundesliga game against Eintracht, Hoffenheim has had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. Hoffenheim conceded a goal first, but by halftime, Hoffenheim was leading 2-1. With one more scored goal in the second half, Hoffenheim has won this game 3-2. Bebou is now the leading goalscorer for Hoffenheim with 5 goals, while Kramaric has added 7 assists. The injury list is still long for Hoffenheim, and that could be a problem for them in this game. With 30 scored goals, Hoffenheim is one of the best offensive teams in the league right now, and their defense is improving slowly, but it’s gotta get even better. Hoffenheim is now in 5th place, and they are only 2 points away from the Champions League spot. Hoffenheim has a few tough games ahead of them, but they are playing really well right now, I just hope they can keep it up.
There is only one pick I’m willing to take here, and that is both teams to score and over 2.5. Both teams are scoring a lot, both teams are playing great, and I think this will be a fairly open game with a lot of good chances.
