Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Wolfsburg, Leipzig will be looking to keep their title hopes alive when they host Freiburg at their Red Bull Arena on Matchday 26. The Red Bulls shared the spoils with the Wolves at the weekend, but it has to be noted that boss Julian Nagelsmann rested key attacker Timo Werner for the Champions League clash against Tottenham.
The team’s top scorer is likely to return to the starting XI against Freiburg, meaning that home win should be considered. Even though France defender Upamecano misses the game through suspension, anything but a routine home triumph will be a major surprise. Christian Streich’s men did well to beat Union Berlin 3-1 in front of home fans at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Red Bull Arena clash against the title-chasing side.
