Freiburg will be hoping to pick up a victory this weekend to keep themselves in the hunt for a Champions League spot in the Bundesliga. However, Bayer Leverkusen will be a tricky opponent, as they bid to bounce back to winning ways.
It has been a thrilling campaign to this point for Freiburg, as they sit in the mix for a Champions League finish. At present, they sit fourth, and just three points off the top of the standings. The German side has won three of their previous four matches, and is just a point above RB Leipzig, and two ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt.
Freiburg maintained their fine run of form last weekend, as they picked up a healthy 2-0 win away from home against Bochum. Michael Gregoritsch netted the opening goal six minutes before the break, while the result was effectively cemented six minutes into the second half following Lucas Holer’s effort. This will be a trickier assignment, but they appear to be a team heading in the right direction.
Bayer Leverkusen sits in the middle of the standings coming into this round of fixtures, as they have picked up 27 points so far this term. They could yet have a part to play in the race for European football next season, but that looks like it will take a massive effort, as they sit eleven points off the top six. Their recent form has also been slightly disappointing.
Over their previous four matches, they have picked up just a single victory, while they have suffered three defeats. Their most recent loss came last weekend, as they were beaten 3-2 at home by Mainz. Xabi Alonso will be hoping for a response from his team this weekend.
