Freiburg are at the Schwarzwald-Stadion for the game against Frankfurt to begin the new 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign. Freiburg were able to avoid relegation by finishing just three points ahead of the relegation play-offs. Frankfurt had a much more comfortable campaign in which the team narrowly missed out on the European spots. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Freiburg were able to secure passage into the second round of the DFB Pokal owing to a penalty shootout win over Energie Cottbus. Christian Streich has been able to bring in a handful of players in the summer even if it meant that the club lost Caglar Soyuncu.
The end of the Niko Kovac era has led to a turmoil at Frankfurt, who have had a disastrous start to life under Adi Hütter. There has been a string of changes in the Frankfurt squad with the arrival of Carlos Salcedo and Ante Rebic.
The two teams played out a draw in both meetings in the 2017-18 campaign. The last meeting at the Schwarzwald-Stadion finished as a goalless draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Freiburg.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Freiburg win at 2.30[/bet_tip_now]
Frankfurt are given a price of 3.25 to emerge victorious in the match. This is not an attractive price especially considering that Frankfurt last victory over Freiburg was more than four years ago and their last away win over Freiburg was almost a decade ago. Frankfurt enter into the match with serious doubts about the club’s ability to step away from the Kovac era and into the Hütter days. The first few competitive matches of the season have seen Frankfurt suffer hammerings. Freiburg are stronger compared to last season and our preview would bet on a home win.

Freiburg vs Frankfurt draw odds: 3.30
Frankfurt win odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
Freiburg are good to score a couple of goals, as Frankfurt are rather struggling at the back. Apart from conceding five against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup, the team went on to lose against the lower league opposition in the first round of the DFB Pokal – despite being the holders. Our correct score prediction anticipates a Freiburg 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Hütter will be under great pressure to end Frankfurt’s poor defensive run shown in the last two competitive matches. However, his team may struggle to achieve the same in an away game against Freiburg, who have a decent attacking line-up spearheaded by Nils Petersen.

First Goalscorer odds
Nils Petersen is a huge a strong point for Freiburg and the forward came up with 16 goals in the league last season. It is an impressive feat considering that Freiburg only managed 32 goals in total. Petersen scored a hat-trick against Frankfurt not too long ago and our first goalscorer prediction would back the 29-year-old.
