SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen / Bundesliga – Two neighbors on the table are opening this Sunday’s program in the 7th round of Bundesliga and this clash is interesting because Freiburg and Bayer are in the lower part of the table and very close to the relegation zone. It is not uncommon for Freiburg, although they had a series of three games without defeat, which was interrupted in the last round. Bayer is a disappointment for now and after three introductory defeats, they have made two triumphs and lost in the last round, with two wins in Europa League. Last season's duel of these rivals in Freiburg ended without a goal.

Freiburg has played better against strong opponents this season, and two victories they achieved were against Wolfsburg as guests and Schalke on their field. They were defeated against Stuttgart and defeated three times, two times in the first two rounds, and in the last. They hoped that they could do something in Augsburg after two triumphs, but they were outplayed in that duel and they were especially bad in the first half when they received the first two goals.
At the start of the second half they reduced the backlog and then there was hope, but by the end, they have received two more goals and suffered the worst defeat of this season. The only good thing in this 4-1 defeat was that they continued to score goals in all matches, except the first round and duel with Eintracht. They were weakened by the absences of the injured Kubler and Petersen, and Kubler could now return, and Haberer and Gondorf are joining the team.
Probable lineups SC Freiburg: Schwolow – Kubler, Gulde, Heintz, C.Gunter – Haberer, Hofler – Frantz, Sallai, Gondorf – Niederlechner
After a very bad start and three defeats in the first three rounds, Bayer has managed to recover and they made three wins, one of which was at the opening of Europa League against Ludogorets. After that, they had the imperative of victory over Mainz and they managed to celebrate, but with a minimum of 1-0. It was easier then, and they also celebrated in Dusseldorf against Fortuna with 2-1, so they were in a good mood in the derby against Borussia Dortmund. They started well, and after the first half, they managed to score with 2-0.
In fact, they had the lead all the way to the middle of the second half, and then they fell incomprehensibly and received four goals for the fourth defeat this season. Weiser has returned in the team in that duel, who was even the shooter, as well as Brandt and Alario, but it did not help, so they sought comfort in Europa League match where they defeated AEK Larnak with 4-2, though they lost in that duel. Alario and Brandt have entered from the bench this time and they were eliminated, so we are now expecting them from the first minute.
Probable lineups Bayer Leverkusen: Hradecky – Weiser, Tah, S.Bender, Wendell – Kohr, L.Bender – Volland, Havertz, Brandt – Alario
SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen PICK
Freiburg is playing changeable, but they are objectively weaker than Bayer and they need to play a very good match to celebrate. The guests have recovered from that defeat in the last round and we expect them to dominate in this match and a win, or possibly record a draw.
