VfL Wolfsburg is hosting SC Freiburg at Volkswagen Arena in round 9 in the German Bundesliga. Wolfsburg is far from their form from the start of the season, and they are now on a 3-game losing streak. Freiburg is one of only 4 undefeated teams in the European top leagues left, and that is the biggest surprise of the season.
Wolfsburg is struggling, a lot and they have won only 1 of their last 8 games. Earlier this week, Wolfsburg has also lost to Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League. With 46% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 80% of the correct passes. Wolfsburg has conceded early, but they tied the score soon after. Unfortunately for Wolfsburg, they concede 2 more goals in the second half, and they lost this game 3-1. In Bundesliga, Wolfsburg has dropped all the way to 7th place with 13 points, 9 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals. Weghorst is still the leading goalscorer for Wolfsburg with 3 goals, but he is on the injury list, and he will most likely miss this game. There are a few more players on the injury list, and Wolfsburg will need to really step up their game if they want to bounce back, but even then, it will be really hard.
As I’ve mentioned, Freiburg is one of only 4 undefeated teams left, and they are the only undefeated Bundesliga team left. Freiburg hasn’t scored a lot, 12 goals so far, but their defense has been excellent with only 6 conceded goals so far. In their last game against Leipzig at home, Freiburg was solid with 52% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 72% of the correct passes. After they conceded a goal in the 32nd minute from the penalty spot, Freiburg has tied the score in the 63rd minute, and 1-1 was the final result. Thanks to their outstanding form and friendly schedule, Freiburg is now in 4th place with 16 points. Jeong is the leading goalscorer for Freiburg with 3 goals, and the good news is there are no injuries in Freiburg. Now, I hope Freiburg can keep this streak alive for a while longer, but I’m not sure for how long they can do it because their schedule will get harder, and that is when heroes are made. Good luck, Freiburg.
With all the injuries in Wolfsburg and their terrible form, I gotta got with Freiburg here. It looks like Wolfsburg is being stretched thin because of the Champions League, and it will cost them in Bundesliga.
