RB Leipzig vs Freiburg Prediction & Betting tips
With RB Leipzig against SC Freiburg, according to the odds, there is a duel with a clear favorite role for the home side. However, the starting position after the long break is quite unpredictable. The teams did not play a regular match for over two months and even friendly matches were not possible.
In addition, the team training started just a few days ago. All of these are factors that have never been seen before in professional sport in this concentrated form. Furthermore, the game is played in the form of a ghost game, which is why the home bonus for the kickers from the splice only results in a limited form.
Overall, it can be expected that there will still be some playful deficits on both sides, which should affect game development and opportunity development.
A goal festival is therefore not likely, especially given that the guests would already be satisfied with a point win in third place in the table and will therefore be particularly concerned about the defensive. In view of the points listed, the RB Leipzig against SC Freiburg Tipp aims at a maximum of three goals in the course of the encounter.
Expert preliminary reports and forecasts for all other games in the top division of the country can easily be found in the section of the Bundesliga betting tips. The kick-off in the empty Red Bull Arena will take place at 14:30 p.m. on May 16.
RB Leipzig wobbled in the last two games before the break and lost four points due to two draws on BVB and the leaders of the Isar. The black and yellow moved past the East Germans and the Bavarians are now five points ahead.
In the title race, RBL must therefore score consistently if you do not want to say goodbye to the dream of the first championship soon. Despite the long break, not all injured players were able to regenerate enough to be available again.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann has to go without Ibrahim Konate and Willi Orban on the defensive. In contrast, Kevin Kampl has at least cured his ankle injury and will certainly play against the four-time champion of the 2nd Bundesliga.
In addition, the mood in the team should not be too bad because Lukas Klostermannn, a player raved by many clubs, recently announced his contract extension with the Red Bulls.
This is an important signal for team cohesion, in which it is known that some players like Dayot Upamecano in defense or top scorer Timo Werner are on the shopping list of various top European clubs. Usually, the home advantage for the kickers from the Pleisse should be pointed out at this point.
But this only results to a limited extent due to the ban on viewers. Nevertheless, he is of course not to be neglected, since the preparation for the team in the almost familiar environment should be more relaxed compared to the opponent.
Especially from the point of view of the many new requirements that result from the DFL’s ambitious hygiene concept for clubs and their players.
Freiburg has also been in a closed form in a hotel near their home venue since last Sunday before they will travel to Leipzig the day before kick-off for the away game. The DFL requirements include this seven-day quarantine measure before the league game.
The timing of the interruption of the season was otherwise particularly unfavorable from the perspective of the 13th of the previous year: after three games without a win, a 3-1 home win against Union Berlin was achieved in the last match in mid-March. Thanks to the threesome, the Black Forest kickers have found the places for the Europa League again.
The season can therefore already be described as successful for the SCF. Relegation worries like so often in recent years, the fans of the Dreisam do not have to endure this time. Personnel coach Christian Streich also draws more or less from the full. Only defender Lukas Kübler will be missing because his knee injury still puts him out of action.
Qualifying for a European competition would not be rejected in the Black Forest, but on the other hand, Freiburg knows only too well how difficult such a subsequent season can be with the additional burden for a limited squad like the SC. For this reason, the season goal is certainly less dogged than pursued at other clubs.
