On Wednesday night, Freiburg will play Eintracht Frankfurt at the Europa Park-Stadion in a German Bundesliga matchup. After a generally successful campaign, the hosts will consider themselves among the favorites to win the Champions League at the conclusion of the campaign.
However, upon their return to competitive play last weekend, they were routed by Wolfsburg by a score of 6-0, and they will be hoping for a strong response this week. With 30 points from 16 games, Freiburg is fourth in the league and hopes to get even better on Wednesday. After a slow start to the season, Frankfurt has also performed well this year, steadily rising up the table.
In their most recent league match, they defeated Schalke, who was in last place, 3-0. Jesper Lindstrom scored halfway through the first half, and Rafael Santos Borre and Aurelio Buta came off the bench to seal the victory. This season, the visitors have also finished second in the league with 30 points. When they play this week, they will try to continue their good run of form.
In their last four Bundesliga matches, Frankfurt has won three and drawn one. This season, they’ve been solid away from home and could get a point here.
After only losing one of their previous 11 league contests, Freiburg has now lost two of those contests. However, they have only lost one home league game this season, and they are looking forward to the matchup in the middle of the week.
Prediction: Freiburg 2-2 Eintracht Frankfurt
The Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt teams have met 30 times. While the visitors have won 13 times, the hosts have won nine of those games. Between the two teams, there have been eight draws. The hosts ended a four-game losing streak in this matchup with a 2-1 victory in the previous encounter.
In their last five matches in this fixture and their last seven matches in all competitions, Freiburg has not kept a clean sheet. This season, Frankfurt has scored 14 points away from home. More have been acquired than league leaders Bayern Munich (18). This season, the Breisgau-Brasilianers have won five of their nine league games at home. This season, the Eagles have scored 35 league goals, which ranks second in the Bundesliga.
For Freiburg manager Christian Streich, Roland Sallai (muscular issues), Manuel Gulde (fitness), and Vincenzo Grifo (ill) are unavailable.
Oliver Glasner, the boss of Eintracht Frankfurt, must deal with multiple availability issues. Injuries to Tuta’s ankle, Luca Pellegrini’s calves, Marcel Wenig’s metatarsal fracture, and Junior Dina Ebimbe’s syndesmotic ligament tear prevent them from participating in the game.
