Freiburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf face off each other in a game that does not have a lot of implication in the Bundesliga 2018-19 table. Freiburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf are separated by just three places in the league table but the visitors have an eight-point advantage over Freiburg courtesy of a brilliant second half to the season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Freiburg lost the fourth game in a row after succumbing 2-1 to RB Leipzig during the weekend. The sequence of losses for Freiburg started with the crushing loss against Mainz 05 in April.
Fortuna Dusseldorf returned to winning ways after beating Werder Bremen with a 4-1 score last weekend. After back-to-back losses against Bayern Munich and Mainz 05, Fortuna Dusseldorf once again used home advantage to return to form.
Dusseldorf came up with a 2-0 win over Freiburg in the reverse fixture back in December, while they also picked up a 2-1 victory in the last trip to the Schwarzwald-Stadion – when both teams were in the second division. Our betting tips and predictions will go with a draw.

Freiburg have been going through a very bad patch of form but it has to do with the quality of the opposition. Freiburg have only faced teams in the top 10 in the last three matches. Fortuna Dusseldorf are in the 10th place coming into the game, but their away record is not so spectacular. After having picked up only four victories on the road this season, Friedhelm Funkel’s team would not be a good pick for an away win. Our preview would go with a stalemate.

Freiburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf draw odds: 3.75
Freiburg win odds: 2.10
Correct Score odds
After having shipped 13 goals in the last four matches, Freiburg will be looking for a respite. However, this Fortuna Dusseldorf team have been scoring goals for fun with players like Lukebakio in good form. Still, this is a game that will see goals at both ends with Funkel’s men struggling for clean sheets. The last clean sheet for Fortuna Dusseldorf was in the first week of March. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 victory for the visitors.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals in nine consecutive games involving Fortuna Dusseldorf. It is quite an incredible feat and it is largely down to the defence being unable to keep clean sheets. At the other end, Freiburg’s 10-game scoring run at home came to an end against Borussia Dortmund. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Dodi Lukebakio is no longer the standalone top scorer at Fortuna Dusseldorf after being joined by his fellow Belgian Benito Raman, who has also scored 10 league goals so far. Yet, Lukebakio has been very consistent for Fortuna Dusseldorf this season and he has scored in two away games since March. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Lukebakio.
