Bayer Leverkusen have had a strong run against Freiburg since the 2-0 defeat back in 2012. This was the last win at the BayArena for Freiburg, who may have picked up a lot of confidence from the recent home win over Augsburg. However, Leverkusen are extremely strong at home and they have picked up five runs in the last six games at BayArena. In contrast, Freiburg have only managed two away wins all season long. Our preview would opt for a Leverkusen victory.

Correct Score odds
There have been plenty of goals from Leverkusen when it comes to away matches, as the team has surprisingly scored less goals at home. However, Freiburg’s away blues is well documented with just 11 goals in as many away matches this season. The BayArena has also been a difficult ground for Freiburg in the past but the recent form of Nils Peterson makes our correct score prediction go with a 2-1 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two games between Freiburg and Leverkusen may have been goalless draws, but this game is expected to witness a healthy return of goals due to both teams having a strong need for three points. Leverkusen and Freiburg have come up with just over two goals per game on an average in the last six games. This is a strong reason behind our total goals prediction going with over 2.5 goals in this fixture.

First Goalscorer odds
Kevin Volland has a sensational record against Freiburg after coming up with seven goals and three assists in 10 league appearances. His last goals against Freiburg came in the 4-0 success back in September 2017. Still, his recent form is quite good and our first goalscorer prediction would pick Kevin Volland.
