Our football match prediction:
Freiburg and Hamburger square off against each other at Schwarzwald-Stadion on day 14 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Freiburg desperately needed a win against Mainz at the weekend and thanks to the 2-1 victory over die Nullfunfer they put an end to their five-game winless run in the national championship. Christian Streich’s men obviously produce much better showings at home than on the travels and given the importance of the match for Freiburg, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Hamburger recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Stuttgart and Hoffenheim in previous two home fixtures in the German top flight, but they are on a five-game losing run on the road and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Taking everything into account, we predict the hosts will win the relegation six-pointer.
