RB Leipzig look to cement their third spot when they take on Freiburg at the Red Bull Arena this weekend. Ralf Rangnick has seen his team open up an eight-point advantage over Frankfurt in the fourth position. This is quite a substantial advantage for RB Leipzig with just four games left in the campaign. Freiburg will return to the Bundesliga next season if the team preserve the existing 11-point advantage over bottom three. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.

Freiburg have every reason to be worried about the threat of another big defeat. The team has stopped playing in recent weeks and the comfortable advantage over the relegation zone should not give them any motivation to change this attitude. RB Leipzig have built up a sizeable advantage for the third place, but Ralf Rangnick will motivate his team in order to keep up this momentum with the DFB Pokal final coming up. Our preview would pick a home win.

Freiburg win odds: 13.00
Correct Score odds
RB Leipzig has surprisingly been struggling for a consistent home run in 2019, but that appears to be changing of late with the team registering back-to-back wins – and scoring seven goals in the process. RB Leipzig have kept four clean sheets in the last five home games, while Freiburg have scored just one goal in the last three encounters. Our correct score prediction would pick a 3-0 win for RB Leipzig.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The lack of goals from Christian Streich’s team is unlikely to dampen the likelihood of a high-scoring encounter, as RB Leipzig have been playing as well as they can in recent weeks. The big wins over Hertha Berlin and the passage into the DFB Pokal final would keep of motivation levels within RB Leipzig. Our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Timo Werner may have been unable to score in the last two games, but he has been more consistent than Yussuf Poulsen, who scored in the midweek DFB Pokal game. Werner appears to enjoy playing against Freiburg after scoring more goals against this opponent (nine goals in nine league games) than any other team in his career. Even in the last five league matches against Freiburg, the 23-year-old has come up with six goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Timo Werner.
