As a betting customer, you should know that you can’t get rich from backing favourites all the time. The bookmakers know that punters prefer to back the jollies when it comes to a football match and will price them artificially short which is certainly the case when we consider the upcoming German Bundesliga match between Leipzig and Freiburg.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Leipzig looked like definite title challengers a few months ago and it’s surely a matter of time before the Red Bull-sponsored team finally have a title to show for the millions that have been invested in this newly-formed club.

However, they started to go off the boil shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side sitting five points behind leaders Bayern Munich at this point in the season and they look set to pay the price for too many points dropped recently.

Home form hasn’t been as strong as the manager would have hoped and five of the twelve games have seen Leipzig fall short when it comes to landing a victory, even if thirty-goals is a fantastic return for those dozen encounters.

Timo Werner is now Germany’s number one striker and the forward has twenty-one goals to his name in the Bundesliga this season, although there was a four game winless run in January and February which has put them at a disadvantage.

A failure to beat Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg just before the lockdown was also costly and they now face a Freiburg team who could be tricky opponents considering that they are having a perfectly respectable season.

Christian Streich’s team are sitting eighth in the table and have their own aspirations when it comes to qualifying for next season’s Europa League, with the side looking as though they are going to improve on the thirteenth of last term.

They have won or drawn eight of the thirteen matches played on the road this term and might not be the pushover that the odds suggest, with the post-lockdown atmosphere of empty grounds something that both sets of players might have to get accustomed to.

We’re going to back Freiburg on the Asian Handicap with a 1.5 goal advantage which means they need to avoid defeat by two goals or more.

BETTING TIP
Freiburg Asian Handicap +1.5 @ 1.95 (20/21) with bet365
