Market: Victory for RB Leipzig
Chances: 1/2 @ 1xBet
Aiming to return to the top four of the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig host Freiburg on Sunday evening.
With the hosts securing long-awaited Champions League promotion with a 2-1 win away to Red Star Belgrade earlier this week, RB Leipzig will certainly be aiming for a repeat performance here. As they progress towards the knockout stages and continue to win a string of European plaudits this season, Marco Rose’s side should smell a real opportunity here. With just one point off finishing in the top four at the start of this weekend’s fixtures, the Red Bulls will surely be delighted to be back on home soil on Sunday night. They were last seen in front of their home fans heading to a stellar 6-0 win over Cologne. Leipzig won two matches in a row at the Red Bull Arena with a combined score of 9–1. Likewise, having won 1-0 in their last Sunday meeting with the visitors on May 6, Rose’s side are rightfully considered the standout opponents this weekend.
On the visitors’ side, while Freiburg could have claimed their own European lead earlier in the week with a routine 5-0 win over TSC, this time Christian Streich’s men have struggled to find domestic stability . Facing a real tough task in the race for another top-six finish this season, the Reds will be more than aware of the heavyweight challenges they face here. After crashing out of the DFP Pokal following a shock 3-1 home defeat to Paderborn on October 29, Freiburg had just one win in any of their previous five home matches in all competitions. Likewise, including a 1-0 defeat in their last meeting with Leipzig on May 6, Streich’s side will be troubled by a nightmare result against Sunday’s hosts. Without a win against a Champions League team since October 2019, we’re expecting a similar result this weekend.
