Freiburg vs Leverkusen Free Betting Tips
Is the SCF sticking to Europe?
So far, the English Week has been exhilarating neither for the Black Forest nor for the Werkself. The kickers from Breisgau gave Eintracht Frankfurt a 3-1 lead (final score: 3: 3) during the week, while Peter Bosz’s men went down 4-1 at home against VfL Wolfsburg and thus fresh Champions League starting position conquered by Gladbach is lost again.
It is all the more urgent that Bayer 04 now need another three in the Black Forest Stadium, where the home side has recently suffered a 0-1 defeat against Werder Bremen.
Nevertheless, in Freiburg against Leverkusen, the forecast must take into account that the Black Forest feels particularly comfortable in the role of the outsider. Most recently, the SCF even held a 1-1 draw away on 16 May 2020 away from the Champions League quarter-finalist RB Leipzig.
Also because the Werkself are likely to travel to the south of Baden-Württemberg with a more defensive stance after the defensive weaknesses shown in Wolfsburg, we think it is most sustainable to give a tip on a low-scoring game (under 2.5 goals) at Freiburg against Leverkusen, which we combine with the double chance 1X on the point win of the home side.
Freiburg – Statistics & current form
SC Freiburg is going through a pretty mixed season. The fourth season in a row, which the second division champion of the year spent in the upper house of German football, started with several successes for eternity. Christian Streich’s men set a new start record and in the meantime even sniffed the qualification for the premier class.
Then, however, the Black Forest experienced a slump in the first half of the season and were only eighth in the table after the 17th matchday. The position that is currently being held after only one of the last seven league games has been won – a 3-1 home win over promoted Union Berlin.
Three losses in the last five home games
But especially against the supposedly small opponents, Christian Streich’s troops struggled again and again. The Black Forest lost at home to clubs such as Paderborn, Düsseldorf and Werder Bremen, which brought them three home losses in the last five home games.
In particular, the home balance, however strong in the first half of the season, was badly affected, which is why it comes as no surprise that bookmakers in Freiburg versus Leverkusen are now declining towards guests. After all, the SCF has not won a single of the last five competitive games against the Werkself.
Four points behind in sixth place
However, three of the last five clashes ended in a draw. And at home Freiburg has been unbeaten for five home games against Bayer Leverkusen. It is also noteworthy that in three of these last five home games against the red-white-blacks, there was a 0-0 draw on the scoreboard in the end.
It is clear that the kickers from Breisgau would slowly but surely leave the race for the Europa League with another draw. After all, after the 3: 3 in Frankfurt, the gap to sixth was again two points larger.
But it is also clear that Christian Streich’s squad should be able to live well with a point win against such a strong opponent. Accordingly, we assume that the experienced coach will by no means set his team too aggressively, but that the SCF will once again be defensively compact and lurking for switching moments.
Probable lineup of Freiburg:
Schwolow – Günter – Heintz – Koch – Gulde – Schmid – Höfler – Haberer – Grifo – Höler – Petersen

Leverkusen – Statistics & current form
For Bayer Leverkusen, the 2019/20 season is also primarily about qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, in which the Werkself are the only German team that has not progressed beyond the group stage this season.
Peter Bosz’s team was involved in most of the season above, but only really climbed into the top four after increasing in the second half of the season. With a crisp remaining program, it was all the more important to have a good restart after the corona break, which also succeeded for the red-white-blacks. The Werkself won 3-1 away at Borussia Mönchengladbach and swapped places with the foals.
After the 1: 4 place four is passé again
As won, so melted, but the previous motto must be in the English week, because the surprisingly clear 1-4 home defeat against VfL Wolfsburg, after which Peter Bosz did not give his team a good hair, is in the run-up to the 29th Matchdays again Gladbach in fourth place and the Werkself remain only the chasing role.
Billing will only take place on match day 34 – incidentally in the 2018/19 season, the only match day on which Leverkusen was on a Champions League starting place. Nevertheless, with a view to the remaining program, it quickly becomes clear that Bayer 04 cannot afford any further dropouts in the Breisgau region. The weekend after, guests are currently guesting in the BayArena over all enthroned Bavaria.
Now follows the return to 4-2-3-1?
Accordingly, Peter Bosz must primarily find the defensive basic virtues after the debacle against the wolves. With the triple chain against Frankfurt, Bremen and Gladbach nine out of nine possible points jumped out with 11: 1 goals. During the week, however, VfL showed in a picture book how to overturn and counterattack a lineup that is too offensive, which the SCF, which is strong in the switchover game, could wonderfully adapt.
We therefore expect the Werkself to return to 4-2-3-1 and primarily want to defensively collect and refuel. Coupled with the defensive compactness of the home side, this suggests placing a tip on a low-scoring game (Under 2.5) at Freiburg against Leverkusen, although it should also be noted that the red-white-blacks in the Black Forest Stadium have recently played five times Series was no threes to get.

Hradecky – Wendell – S. Bender – Tapsoba – L. Bender – Baumgartlinger – Aranguiz – Diaby – Havertz – Bellarabi – Alario

For Freiburg against Leverkusen, the prediction must primarily take into account the results from the English week. The Werkself should do a lot after the unexpected 1: 4 home defeat against Wolfsburg.
We expect Peter Bosz to line up his team much more defensively against the kickers from Breisgau, whose great strength so far has been to hand over the game equipment to the opponent and then come up with a quick switching game.
