RB Leipzig vs Freiburg Prediction
• Leipzig crusied to a 4-0 aggregate win over Tottenham in midweek to make it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but all focus will be back on the league where they have a 5pt gap to make up to catch league leaders Bayern Munich. They have a pretty similar home record to their away record with 7 wins and 4 draws.
• Freiburg are 14pts behind Leipzig and ended a 2 match losing run with a 3-1 win over Union Berlin last weekend. But away from home, they have not won since mid-January and scored just one goal in their last 3.
• The game will be played behind closed doors, and it’s tough to predict how this will affect the home side. Freiburg games, particularly away from home, don’t tend to feature that many goals.
