After claiming their Champions League spot for the first time ever in history RB Leipzig will be aiming to clinch another clinical win when they host Freiburg this weekend in Bundesliga. RB Leipzig are just one point behind the second and five points behind the top spot of Bundesliga points table.
Recently RB Leipzig beat Tottenham Hotspur by 3-0 to enter into quarter finals of Champions League. Prior to this , Leipzig played back to back draws so they will be keen to win this to gain some winning momentum. Although this won’t be so easy for them as Freiburg will make their way quite tough since they managed to beat Union Berlin by 3-1 in their last home meeting.
Looking at the recent form of both these two teams Freiburg has won two matches, lost two matches and in the remaining one they managed a draw. Leipzig on the other hand is unbeaten in their last five matches, having won two matches while playing the draw in their remaining matches. They surely got an upper hand over Freiburg this weekend as they host Freiburg at Red Bull Arena which is a worry sign for Freiburg.
When both these two teams met earlier this season Freiburg showed their class and managed a nail biting victory over RB Leipzig after scoring in each of the halves. But now the things will be totally different as this time it will be Leipzig who will enjoy home advantage and the stats shows the same. Leipzig are unbeaten at their home ground in their last 9 matches winning 6 of them and playing draw on three occasions.
