Freiburg vs RB Leipzig: Match preview and predictions

Freiburg vs RB Leipzig: Match preview and predictions

The Bundesliga match brings us an extremely interesting encounter where there will be goals for sure. An excellent home team is expecting a giant from the east of Germany, Leipzig. We expect goals in this match, because these are goalie teams. In the last round, both teams surprisingly lost points.

Freiburg was unexpectedly easily beaten in Berlin by the Union home team. Leipzig, on the other hand, was drawing against Wolfsburg on their field. Maybe Leipzig was preparing for a match against Zenit in the Champions League and maybe they just didn’t play their best.

Freiburg team news:

In the introductory part of the season Freiburg made a great impression as Streich’s team achieved four wins, just like the favorites to win the championship titles of Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. For Streich, the problem is oscillations in his team’s performance. This team functions much better when he is not in the favorite position, just as is the case in the upcoming match against RB Leipzig.

Namely, the only two defeats this season were Freiburg teams registered in meetings with Koln and Union Berlin. The biggest handicap for the host is an injury to the standard goalkeeper who will be replaced by Flekken, a goalkeeper who has made only one match in his career against RB Leipzig.

There won’t even be a Kubler defender who has a knee injury problem in the competition. Streich should put the team in a 3-4-3 formation and the biggest threat for RB Leipzig’s goal should be Haberer, Holer and Waldschmidt, who scored almost a third of Freiburg’s goals this season.

Probable lineup: Flekken, Leinhart, Koch, Heintz, Schmid, Frantz, Hofler, Gunter, Haberer, Waldschmidt, Holer

RB Leipzig team news:

RB Leipzig is keeping pace with rivals in the race to win the German Championship. After home defeats to Schalke and Lyon, RB Leipzig won a point in the championship rounds with Bayer and Wolfsburg, and then has break a series of worse results in Wednesday with a valuable European victory over Zenit. The visitors from Russia took the lead in that game, but in the sequel Sabitzer woke up. First assisting Laimera for the equalizing goal, to achieve a phenomenal goal later for a complete score turn later.

The visitors will surely miss the striker Wolf who has an ankle injury. Almost certainly Nagelsmann will not use Konate, Mukiele, Adams and Schick in this game, who are not fully ready for the game. There will be certain changes in the starting lineup of RB Leipzig due to the demanding pace of the matches. Nagelsmann should use a 3-5-2 formation with Poulsen and Werner in the top of the attack.

Probable lineup: Gulacsi, Klostermann, Upamecano, Orban, Laimer, Sabitzer, Kampl, Forsberg, Halstenberg, Poulsen, Werner
