Competition: Europa League
Market: Freiburg win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their Europa League romp on Thursday night, Freiburg will host a struggling Nantes at the Europa-Park Stadion.
Starting with the hosts, shocking many across Germany last season as they snatched a European finish, Freiburg are enjoying what has become an extended purple patch. Last seen over the weekend marking their return from September’s international break with a 2-1 victory at home against Mainz, Head Coach Christian Streich has seen his side gain a string of plaudits. Unbeaten in each of their last eight straight matchups across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to August 12th, the Reds have also continued to shine while on European duties. Securing back-to-back Europa League victories against Olympiakos and Qarabag by an aggregate score of 5-1, Freiburg appear to be cruising their way to the knockout stage of this year’s tournament. Riding quite the wave of momentum, there is no doubt that Streich’s high-flying squad should be smelling another real chance to lay down another marker here.
As for the visitors, while Freiburg might be enjoying a stellar purple patch, the same cannot be said for a struggling Nantes. Last seen over the weekend marking their return from the international break with a dreadful 4-1 drumming away at Monaco, Les Canaris have now collected just a single point from any of their last four matchups across all formats. Likewise, with that run highlighted by a shock 3-0 drumming away at Qarabag on September 15th, the French outfit have also shown a string of issues at the back. Shipping 10 goals on their four-match winless run, Antoine Kombouaré’s men will know that they face a tough task on foreign soil here. Likewise, with Thursday’s guests picking up just a single victory since the end of August, we’re backing a home win for Freiburg here.
