RB Leipzig vs SC Freiburg Prediction & Betting tips
In the duel of the two previous year’s runners, RB Leipzig will receive SC Freiburg. While the Saxons mocked their opening, the Breisgau did not get past a 0-0.
RB Leipzig :
For the first time in the still young club history, the Leipzig lost their opening game. With the Königsblauenschalkern it was a deserved 2: 0 defeat. The perfect start, set by the new Schalker Tedesco coach, was not easy to break even from the aggressive Saxons, even if they had more ball possession over the entire season and also created the necessary chances.
The crack in the game from the perspective of the Hasenhüttl men was just before the break when Upamecano with a clumsy Rempler Di Santo in the penalty area to the ground. The referee had no choice but to point to the point. Bentaleb thundered the ball humorously to the 1: 0 lead under the bar.
After the break, Coach Hasenhüttl brought the easily-beaten Forsberg, the last season with 22 assists was the best preparer and promptly a fresh wind was on the offensive of the Sachsen. But because they did not manage to break the defensive bulwark of the royal bluewings that day, it came as it had to come. Konoplyanka, who had fallen into disgrace under ex-coach Weinzierl, ended up in a 2-0 victory after a perfect counterattack.
On Sunday, the Red Bulls face SC Freiburg in front of their home crowd and they had a laugh at the Saxon last season but did not have anything to laugh about, and they finished with zero points from home and away and a total score of 8: 1.
After his knee bounce, Diego Demme was able to complete a complete training session for the first time. If he remains pain-free until Sunday, he could be worth considering according to coach Hasenhüttl.
Lukas Klostermann, on the other hand, must take care of the Saxons. The defending champion was on Schalke for a full distance on the grass and could be spared on Sunday.

One of the sensations of the last season was surely the SC Freiburg. As a promoter, they managed to qualify for the Euroleague, although they were one of the teams in the entire Bundesliga with the lowest budget.
Last weekend they received the Frankfurt Eintracht to the start in front of domestic backdrop. The action of the game is quickly explained. Both teams did not get past the scoreline for the entire 90 minutes, scoring 0-0 at the end.
Although the Nico Kovac’s team had a slight advantage over the entire season, the Freiburg players focused on the counterattacks, but more than small chances did not jump out, so the placekeeper even took the time to clear both goals in half.
Offensive, the Breisgau have missed a lot and the club’s responsibility is to decide whether they should commit a reinforcement in the attack after the departures of Philipp and Grifo.
On Sunday, the matchmakers have to go to the very difficult away game to Leipzig, where there was nothing to be done last season.
Gulde (back problems), Niedermeier (build-up training after back problems), Meffert (reha after foot injury), guedé (build-up training after ligament crack and syndesmosis injury) coach stroke are definitely not available.
Schwolow – Lienhart, Schuster, Kempf – P. Stenzel, Höfler, C. Günter – Frantz – Terrazzino, Haberer – Niederlechner
