Freiburg has gone four without defeat in the Bundesliga over recent weeks, and they will be bidding to extend that run this weekend. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim will be desperate for a response after suffering five straight defeats.
Freiburg remains in the hunt for a Champions League spot this term, as they sit fifth in the current standings after 23 rounds of fixtures. They have been fairly consistent throughout the season to this point, as they have won 12 of the 23 games that they have played. Meanwhile, they have suffered just five defeats. Freiburg’s ability to be difficult to beat has been evident over their last five matches, as they have been beaten on just one occasion.
However, they come into this fixture having been held to draws in their previous two. Their most recent draw was picked up last weekend, as they played out a 0-0 stalemate against Borussia Monchengladbach. In truth, neither side did enough over the course of the 90 minutes to suggest that they deserved to win the match.
Things are looking pretty worrying for Hoffenheim at this stage of the season, as they have dropped into the bottom three places after losing their previous five matches. No side in the Bundesliga is currently on a longer losing run in the division, with Hoffenheim having allowed the third-highest number of goals against this term.
But, their defensive play has been decent in recent weeks, as it has been their inability in the final third that has cost them. That is evident by the fact that each of their previous three losses has been recorded by 1-0 scorelines. The latest of those came on the road against Mainz. They will need to rediscover their threat in the final third quickly.
Freiburg vs Hoffenheim Head to Head
The previous meeting between the sides this term ended in a 0-0 draw. However, both matches last season were won by the team playing away from home. Meaning this fixture was won by Hoffenheim, with Freiburg gaining revenge in the return fixture later in the season.
Freiburg vs Hoffenheim Prediction
Hoffenheim’s recent form is extremely concerning, and they could drop into the automatic relegation places this weekend. We struggle to see anything other than a victory for Freiburg, as they have been incredibly consistent in recent weeks.
