I was not lucky with yesterday’s basketball bet, so today back to football so…
Freiburg looked decent at the start against Eintracht last weekend and even had some chances, but once the scoring machine from Frankfurt started, it was difficult to keep up with them. In the end, 3:1 defeat was a deserved one since the guests need to work much more in order to be more efficient and reliable at the back.
Hoffenheim couldn’t keep up the pace with Bayern Munich in a 1:3 home defeat. The Bavarians were far better in the first halftime, while they lowered down the tempo in second and allowed the hosts to temporarily reduce. Hoffenheim now has no victory in last seven rounds being six points behind Champions League placed RB Leipzig.
Midfielder Hofler (11/0) is injured for the hosts, similar to another midfielder Sallai (7/2) who remains doubtful as well as defender Gunter (17/0). The guests are missing midfielder Nordtveit (8/0) while defender Bicakcic (13/1) remains doubtful due to illness.
The visitors have shown already that they are very unreliable and that teams like Freiburg certainly have their chances in such matches on the road. Value is with the home team. With a bit more concentration upfront for hosts, this can be even a home victory, but we go with safe option 1X.
