Freiburg hope to pull away from the relegation places when they take on Hoffenheim at the Schwarzwald-Stadion this weekend. Hoffenheim’s European qualification hopes are slowly being taken away due to a poor run of form. Freiburg may be seven points above the 16th place but there is still potential for the team to be dragged into the bottom three. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Freiburg were beaten 3-1 by Frankfurt in an impressive display at the Commerzbank Arena. This was the first defeat for Freiburg since the away loss against Fortuna Dusseldorf in the middle of December.
Hoffenheim were beaten 3-1 by Bayern Munich as the club’s winless run in the Bundesliga hit seven matches. As a result, Julian Nagelsmann’s men are slowly slipping away from the top six places.
The reverse fixture between Hoffenheim and Freiburg produced a 3-1 victory for Hoffenheim, whose last trip to the Schwarzwald-Stadion saw them lose 3-2. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Hoffenheim are given a price of 1.95 to win the match. However, Julian Nagelsmann’s team have been quite poor on several fronts over the last few weeks. The last league victory for Hoffenheim was in November and this seven-game winless streak in the Bundesliga is starting to hurt the team quite badly. Freiburg had to suffer a defeat upon the return to league campaign but this loss came against an impressive Frankfurt outfit. Christian Streich’s men are likely to make the most of home form, where they have lost only twice this season. A majority of the home games for Freiburg have been draws, which would be our pick for the match.

Freiburg win odds: 3.50
Hoffenheim win odds: 1.95
Correct Score odds
Hoffenheim have been struggling to pick up victories of late. As a result, the impressive form seen in the first few months of the season is almost forgotten and the team are slowly slipping out of contention for the European qualification places. Meanwhile, Freiburg still have the motivation to pick up points and sneak into the top of the table. Yet, there have been 1-1 draws in 50% of the last six meetings between the two clubs. Our correct score prediction would go with more of the same.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The two teams are capable of scoring at least once in the match, as both teams have enough offensive strength. The likes of Nils Petersen for Freiburg and Kramaric for Hoffenheim are both capable forwards. However, both teams are now in terms of form and confidence. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Andrej Kramaric has an excellent record against Freiburg after managing four goals in as many appearances. Freiburg are one of his favourite opponents in the Bundesliga. Even though he failed to score in the home match against Bayern Munich, our first goalscorer prediction would back Andrej Kramaric.
