Competition: Bundesliga

Market: RB Leipzig win

Odds: 1/2 @ 1xBet

Looking to skyrocket their way back into the Bundesliga top-four, RB Leipzig will welcome Freiburg to town on Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, managing to claim what was a welcomed Champions League boost earlier in the week as they secured a 2-1 victory away at Red Star Belgrade, RB Leipzig will certainly be seeking a repeat performance here. Cruising their way to the knockout stage and continuing to gain a string of European plaudits this season, Marco Rose’s side should be smelling a real opportunity here. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-four, the Red Bulls will certainly be excited to make a return to home soil on Sunday evening. Last seen in front of their own supporters cruising their way to a stellar 6-0 romp against Koln, Leipzig have won back-to-back showdowns at the Red Bull Arena by an aggregate score of 9-1. Likewise, landing a 1-0 victory when they last met Sunday’s guests back on May 6th, Rose’s side are rightfully tipped as a standout contender this weekend.

As for the visitors, while Freiburg might have claimed their own European boost earlier in the week as they secured a routine 5-0 romp against TSC, Christian Streich’s men have struggled to find much domestic stability this time around. Facing a real uphill challenge in their bid to claim another top-six finish this season, the Reds will be more than aware that they face a heavyweight challenge here. Crashing out of the DFP Pokal thanks to a shock 3-1 loss at home against Paderborn on October 29th, Freiburg have claimed just one win from any of their previous five domestic contests across all competitions. Likewise, including that 1-0 loss when they last met Leipzig back on May 6th, Streich’s side will be concerned by a nightmare record against Sunday’s hosts. Without a win against the Champions League outfit since way back in October 2019, we are expecting a similar outcome this weekend.
