RasenBallsport Leipzig vs Freiburg Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Despite controlling possession throughout last week, RB Leipzig fell in their opener. Freiburg held out for a draw, meanwhile. RB Leipzig lost 2-0 after taking a tough trip to Gelsenkirchen to face Schalke. The hosts on the day got a penalty from Nabil Bentaleb before half time, and then a goal from Yehven Konoplyanka. Freiburg played out a scoreless home draw on Sunday against Eintracht Frankfurt. The match was even, but neither side proved good strong enough to break through. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

RB Leipzig scored four goals in both fixtures last season in the Bundesliga as they strolled toward victories both home and away. Timo Werner scored in both matches to take up to three total, while Keita also grabbed a goal in both matches. There's a big advantage for RB Leipzig, and they should be able to win this match and get their season off and running this term. RB Leipzig to win and concede a goal can bring you 11/5 odds, and it looks a possibility as they do give up goals most of the time in matches. Timo Werner to score in either half, a half of your choice, is at 11/5. His three goals in two matches last season shows he's capable of adding to that.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Preview

It wasn't the ideal start last week for RB Leipzig at Schalke, but it was always going to be a tough trip for them on the opening day. They went with a bit of a changed plan, with Keita out wide, and that might have explained part of the reason for the loss. Schalke were always going to be a better team than they were last season, and it's a very tough place to play anyway, but they did sort of help the home side out. This week, we should expect to see them go back to basics. Expect to see Forsberg and Bruma unleashed from the off, as it makes them a better side. And Keita should be back in the middle where he belongs, unless they do decide to sell- of course.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Team News

RB Leipzig will be missing defensive midfielder Diego Demme and left back Bernardo due to fitness concerns.

Freiburg Preview

Freiburg got a decent point to begin their season, but they have been a little tepid so far. In the DFB Pokal, they weren't nearly as dominant as they would have hoped. Restoring Nils Petersen to the lineup should be a big help to them this weekend, but they will still find it tough to go to Leipzig and get a point or three from this match. After such a strong season last term, it's tough to expect Freiburg to be able to fight in the top half yet again. It's so tough in this league, and teams find you out very quickly. Matches like this need to be taken advantage of while they still can.

Freiburg Team News

Freiburg won't be able to select forward Karim Guede, center backs Georg Niedermeier and Manuel Gulde, and defensive midfielder Jonas Meffert due to various injuries until after the international break.
