SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview
SC Freiburg gave up on a vital 1-3 lead to handover Eintracht Frankfurt a 3-3 draw at the Commerzbank arena on Tuesday night. Christian Streich's men have failed to register a win after returning from the pandemic break in March, having lost a game and drawing 2 since their return.
The Southern German club who are in the the seventh place on the the Bundesliga table with 38 points will now host Bayer Leverkusen at the Schwarzwald stadium on May 29th, Friday.
Leverkusen's stunning return from the break was punctured by a shattering 1-4 home loss to VFL Wolfsburg on the evening of 26th – this coming after stunning wins over Bremen and fourth – placed Borussia Monchengladbach.
Coach Peter Bosz's hopes of entering into the top 4 where dashed after the loss to Wolfsburg, as a result his team stands at 5th spot with 53 points, the same as Gladbach but with an inferior goal difference.
SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News
As for team news, Freiburg have no injury issues as such, with their potent duo of Lucas Holler and Nils Petersen leading the charge upfront. The combine has accounted for 20 of the 38 goals score by Freiburg this season and will be a threat to the the visitors going forward.
Bayer Leverkusen have been a threat going forward and have got 8 goals from their 3 games after the break.
But Werkself have been leaky at the back – conceding as many as 6 from those outings including the four given away in the Wolfsburg loss.
Freiburg has a tight defence, but have been guilty of slackening as they demonstrated against Frankfurt on Tuesday when they relented to pressure and conceded two late goals that deprived them of a precious win.
Streitch's men thus run the risk of being outscored by their high-flying opponents who have their eyes on a top 4 berth and a Champions League qualifying spot.
Leverkusen have won more away matches than any other side (aside from table toppers Bayern Munich) with a style of play most suited to games on the road.
But the visitors have not won in their last 6 visits to the Schwartzwald stadium since 2011 – losing twice and drawing in four which is why Peter Bosz's men will be very wary of there opponents despite odds being in their favour for Friday night's game.
