Freiburg welcomes Paderborn
Freiburg welcomes Paderborn at the Schwarzwald-Stadion in a fixture from the 19th week of the Bundesliga. These are our football prediction tips for this game, let’s go.
Freiburg are doing pretty good this season and the facts are clear – they are 7th in the league with 29 points and they can chase European qualification at the end of the campaign. Just two points behind the 6th Bayer Leverkusen, Freiburg could qualify for Europa League if they show consistency.
Last week Freiburg celebrated their 8th win for the season. Christian Streich’s boys travelled to Mainz to face Mainz 05 at the Opel Arena and scored twice in first half, which allowed them to achieve a 2-1 win. Kwon Chang-Hoon and Nils Petersen put the ball behind Robin Zentner’s back.
Against Paderborn Christian Streich must deal with the absence of Lukas Kubler and Robin Koch, who are still unavaliable because of injuries.
Can Paderborn save themselves from relegation this season? This is a good question, because right now they are 18th in the league with just 12 points won. In 18 games played since the start of the campaign, Paderborn won just 3 of them. It’s difficult to survive with a form like this.
Last week Paderborn suffered their 12th loss for the campaign. Steffen Baumgart’s team hosted Bayer Leverkusen at the Benteler-Arena, but the visitors did much better and went home with a 4-1 win. Dennis Srbeny scored Paderborn’s only goal in the game.
In our football prediction tips we are going to state the obvious – Freiburg are in a much better position to win this match. They are the better team at the moment and one look at the standings is proving it. For Paderborn every point won until the end of the season could be precious, but it’s hard for them to do it on a regular basis.
