Freiburg and RB Leipzig are set to face off in the Bundesliga on Saturday (May 6) at the Europa-Park Stadion. The hosts will be looking to bounce back from a humiliating 5-1 defeat against Leipzig in the DFB Pokal semifinals earlier this week.
Freiburg have been in good form in the Bundesliga, winning three of their last three games and keeping two clean sheets in the process. However, they will be up against a Leipzig side that has won five of their last six games across all competitions, scoring 12 goals and keeping three clean sheets.
Leipzig have a superior record against Freiburg in recent years, winning eight of their last 17 meetings. Freiburg have picked up four wins in that period, while the spoils have been shared on five occasions.
Leipzig have won their last three games against Freiburg and are unbeaten in their last eight meetings, claiming five wins since a 2-1 loss in October 2019.
Freiburg have struggled at home in recent weeks, losing three of their last five home games and failing to win in four of those matches. This could give Leipzig an advantage as they look to secure a top-four finish.
After their midweek cup win, Leipzig head into the weekend full of confidence and are expected to pick up where they left off.
Marco Rose’s men have struggled away from home in recent weeks, losing three of their last four league games since the start of March. However, they will be looking to put their away form behind them and secure a crucial victory against Freiburg.
Prediction: Freiburg 1-2 Leipzig
