In the 28th round of Bundesliga, RB Leipzig comes to Freiburg for another interesting clash between the two teams. Freiburg is currently at the 8th spot with 36 points, however the distance to the sixth Eintracht Frankfurt is not unattainable, with the Frankfurters being only 5 points away. Leipzig is unlikely to drop from its fifth place, given that its advantage over Frankfurt is 9 points, but the main goal for the team is to finish in the top-4, where the usual competition between Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer was interrupted by the bold Stutgart. The distance to Borussia is only 3 points, which leaves this match’s guests plenty of chances. The first-round match between RB Leipzig and Freiburg saw the comfortable Leipzig win, 3-1.

Freiburg vs RB Leipzig Preview 

Freiburg Preview

Freiburg was shocked by West Ham in the second leg match of Europa League, coming from England with 5-0 defeat. After that the team lost to the most-likely champion of Bundesliga, Bayer, in a dramatic match (3-2) and in the last round managed to win over Borussia Mönchengladbach (3-0). However, this win cannot be called pleasing for both fans and board, given that the team’s game was far from perfect - Gladbach outplayed Freiburg in almost every aspect of the game, but managed to concede 3 goals from 3 shots on target. Christian Streich emphasised that the team needs to be more concrete in its actions, especially in the defence, and the upcoming match will be a crucial test for the team’s ambitions of chasing the top-6.

RB Leipzig Preview 

Leipzig, after losing to Bayern due to the goal in the stoppage time, showed several outstanding performances, confidently winning Darmstadt (2-0) and Köln (5-1), and drawing with Real Madrid (1-1). In the last match, Die Roten Bullen, however, failed to win over Mainz (0-0) not due to the poor game, but rather thanks to Mainz luck. Another layer of confidence before the upcoming match is the favourable statistics in head to head matches against Freiburg - the team has 5 consecutive wins over Freiburg, with the last loss recorded 11 matches ago, in 2019.
