SC Freiburg vs. Bayer 04 Leverkusen Betting Tips
Bayer Leverkusen travel to Freiburg for their Matchday 30 clash on the back of a 0-0 home draw against Bayern Munich, where they’ve secured an important point and now look to build on it plotting a top 6 chase. While we don’t feel they’ll be able to snatch all three points here, we’ll now back the sides to share the spoils at 12/5 with William Hill
Although they’ve been in an unpredictable form recently, Die Werkself have conceded more than one goal in just one of their last seven matches and bagged four draws and a single win in the process. We thus feel they’ll now have what it takes to escape a loss once again, and reinstate their ambitions to catch up with the league’s top 6.
Freiburg, on the other hand, come into the match after a thrashing 4-0 loss at RB Leipzig, being outclassed for the second time in their last four outings, with narrow wins over Wolfsburg (0-1) and Mainz (1-0) earned in the process. They’ll now have to struggle to bounce back in another tough clash, and we don’t see them returning to the winning ways.
With the balance of things, we expect a very narrow contest at Schwarzwald-Stadion and we’ll go for a low-scoring contest as well, backing Under 2.5 goals FT at Evens with BetVictor
. Six of last seven Bayer’s games have ended with two or fewer goals and, with the belief they can snatch a point on the day, this does give further evidence for the goals bet.
