Our match prediction:
Freiburg kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign with a 2-1 loss at Hertha, but they did well to beat Borussia M’gladbach in their first home game of the season. The newcomers are eager to secure the top flight survival and they need to keep on winning in front of home fans if they are to turn their dream into reality. Freiburg take on Hamburger at their Schwarzwald-Stadion on Tuesday evening and given that the visitors have been totally out of form of late, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. The two teams shared the spoils in previous three meetings in Bundesliga, but Freiburg are a real force to be reckoned with at home and that is the main reason why we predict the newcomers are going to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match. A man to watch in the home team will be Nils Petersen, who scored 21 goals last season.
